ERICKSON: The Green Raw Deal
Erick Erickson, The Daily Wire
Democrats in the House of Representatives have rolled out what they are calling a "Green New Deal." It is the most serious public policy offering from Generation Tide Pod Eater to ever be unveiled. It is exactly what you would expect.
In the rollout of their deal, the Democrats released an outline that summarized their legislation. It included such gems as, "When JFK said we'd go to the by the end of the decade, people said impossible." You might think I left out the word "moon" and a few other choice words. You would be wrong. The Democrats left those out. There is also this one: "We aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows."
This is not the product of serious people. This is the product of zealots who are under the impression they have more power than they actually do. The Democrats' plan calls for the elimination of fossil fuels and the embrace of 100 percent renewable energy, but would not invest in new nuclear power. Were this successful, the nation would be wholly dependent on the sun and on wind for energy. No nation has been so wholly dependent on the sun and on wind for energy since the period known as the Dark Ages.
