For the far left in America, climate change is just like a religion. Anyone who deviates from their position on the subject is treated like a heretic.
The far left political commentator Van Jones has just outdone himself on crazy rhetoric.
He writes at CNN:
Trump may have signed Earth’s death warrant
As usual, Donald Trump is completely upside down on the facts.
In 2015, President Barack Obama created the Clean Power Plan to slow climate disruption. It was the first action ever taken by the US government to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.
And this week, with the stroke of a pen, President Trump directed the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to take steps to end it.
Trump may have just signed a death warrant for our planet (at least, for a planet that is liveable for humans). And the lies he told to justify it have real consequences for real Americans, here and now.
First, Trump says he wants to dismantle the Clean Power Plan because it represents what he calls “job-killing regulation.” False — limited losses in some sectors are dwarfed by gains in others.
The potential for job growth in the clean energy sector dwarfs any potential job growth in the fossil fuel economy.
At various times, Van Jones has been described as a communist and a 9/11 truther.
Maybe he’s not the best person to be pointing crazy fingers at others.
