James Hansen Explains The Green New Deal

This genius is Colorado’s governor.

Jared Polis on Twitter:

This is what the world’s leading climate alarmist says about that idea :

The notion that renewable energies and batteries alone will provide all needed energy is fantastical. It is also a grotesque idea, because of the staggering environmental pollution from mining and material disposal, if all energy was derived from renewables and batteries. Worse, tricking the public to accept the fantasy of 100 percent renewables means that, in reality, fossil fuels reign and climate change grows.

    Jared Polis appears to have taken off the rose-colored glasses for that photo.

      One good thing, if he ever has to vacate the governor’s mansion in a hurry, it’ll be easy because he already has his shit packed.

    An economy that works for all..

    All his fellow bureaucrats and his family maybe, but that’s where it ends. That brainless turducken would have far fewer lies to spout if there were no pretty icons to prefix his feel-goodery barf with.

    My guess is that just getting the green “100% renewable” label is important to a lot of folks. Especially to those people who are not used to any kind of deep thinking.

    Thus, eating Rainforest Crunch Ice Cream becomes your contribution to saving the planet and you can rest easy that you are making a difference and that everything will be under control so long as your fridge is always stocked with Rainforest Crunch.

    The “renewable” energy label probably has the same effect. You don’t have to change a thing and may even think that running your air conditioner is helping to cool the planet. It is such an attractive and mesmerizing idea when you think about it. You live in a 100% renewable state or city, thus your contribution is done!

      The stupidity of our electorate terrifies me.

      • Anon says:

        Well, if you believe that Trump somehow reached out to Putin to win the 2016 Presidential election, chances are you will believe anything. That theory was preposterous at the outset.

            The communists know this very well
            as spitituality/religion is integral part of mankind.
            No matter which place or culture or timeline – it always existed without outer influence.

            By removing this essential part of humanity communists knew very well that they can now fill this gap with worshipping the state,hedonism,celebrities etc and encouraging narcissm disguised as altruism.

            And Jared Polis is using the full communist playbook.
            He keeps the timeline all leftiss in the western world are pushing of 100% renewables in a very short time frame.
            +an economy that works for all marxist standard BS
            +FULL DAY preschool/kindergarten,
            so that 24/7 indoctrination starts at very young age and children are kept from their families.

          The Dems seem completely preoccupied with…

          1. Denying responsibility for their own failure
          2. Firing up the self-righteousness of those who already support them
          3. Dismissing everyone who doesn’t already support them as subhuman (‘deplorable’ in their code)

          This does not sound like a successful strategy.

    I’m afraid that Jared’s brain is beyond being renewed. But that is why we have the hard teacher of reality. Too bad the electorate of CO that knows better will have to suffer as the plurality that live in the land of unicorns learn their lessons.

  5. Steve says:


    “Physicist Mark P. Mills gave the NERC Reliability Leadership Summit a blistering and entertaining critique of green tech punditry, saying forecasts of a rapid shift away from hydrocarbons are delusional.”

  6. Mr Sir says:

    I see no downsides to Polis’ ideas in that tweet.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      That’s not surprising. Your whole contribution to this blog is showing how much you don’t see and comprehend.

    • rah says:

      That’s because your an idiot! In fact so idiotic that it is a waste of time and bandwidth to try and explain to you why.

    • arn says:

      No downsides?

      Try to explain how the hell you will replace such a huge energy power structure with renewables within just 2 decades
      and built huge energy backups that can store thousands of gigawatts of energy to balance the lack of energy production on windless cloudy days.
      +building of infrastructure
      +many lawsuits against powerpoles etc on private properties

      This is a century project supposed to happen within 10-20 years depending on who you as(AOC & Polis)
      which is impossible to be done in that timeframe.
      But that”s not even the biggest problem,but
      that you replace extremly powerfull energy production objects,
      with extremly low energy producing units(windmills,panels)
      which come with another huge disadvantage=unriliable.

      Going 100% renewable by 2030/40 will be the man made catastrophy AGW is supposed to be.

      As long as morons like you with zero common sense exist people need weapons to defend themselves from the negative results your stupidity and good intentions have created.

    • MGJ says:

      I take it you didn’t accidentally forget the /s and were trying to be annoying.

      ‘Free’ education and healthcare. I take it there weren’t too many details provided on who pays for all this ‘free’ stuff?

      ‘An economy that works for all’. This is meaningless gibberish.

      Others have already addressed the green part.

    I have moved from CO. Cannot stand to live in Eastern California any longer. Freakin idiots want to allow the homeless the right to pitch a tent anywhere on public ground and claim it as residence. In Colorado Springs you cant move for the homeless.

  8. Mark Williams says:

    James continues to rewrite history, “The fossil fuel industry afraid of kids? They might be when they notice who is standing behind the kids: the United States Constitution. Kids are people with constitutional rights to life, liberty and property.”

    First off, it is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Second, that phrase is not in the US Constitution but is in the Declaration of Independence.

  9. pseudo-intellectual says:

    “An economy that works for all.”

    That’s the same mantra used by excessive Democrat JB Pritzker to get elected governor of Illinois.

    All these guys using the same cheat-sheet.

  10. Bill says:

    The unmitigated deceit and willful ignorance in this blog post are amazing to behold.
