The House Climate Crisis Committee held their first public meeting here in Boulder today. Temperature is 80 degrees, and Boulder is the greenest anyone has ever seen it this time of year. The Governor declared a “climate crisis” today – after the best ski season and the coolest, greenest summer on record. He wants the state to go 100% renewable energy, which would make it impossible for anyone to get to the ski areas.
I don’t think the committee members flew in on wind powered airplanes, and most electric cars can’t drive to Vail without recharging. Imagine a line of 2,000 electric cars on I-70 waiting to do their two hour fast charge at the recharge station. Could take the rest of the driver’s life.
One of the more amazing moments was when Rep. Garret Graves, (R) Louisiana implied that we could stop land subsidence in Louisiana by building windmills in Colorado.
For the whole country, this was the coolest January-July on record – with the smallest number of hot days.
The frequency of hot days is down more than 60% since the 1930s.
Average minimum temperature has been 14th coolest on record. Illinois set their all-time cold record earlier this year.
Most states set their all-time temperature record more than 60 years ago, and none have set their record since 2012.
The committee effused about how the audience was participating in government, though we were not allowed to speak or ask questions. Democrats’ concept of participation is essentially the same as the Soviet Union.
The entire event was a fascinating exercise in mass inanity and delusion. As a scientist and observer – I love this stuff. I’m getting to witness one of the most bizarre events in human history. A planned campaign to destroy civilization – via an army of useful idiots.
