They have a lot of millitary bases there, right? That explains this doozy: a report from a liberal outfit calling themselves "The Department of Defense of the United States of America" (lol - what are they defending, a kale farm?!?!). They're worried about their "bases" (aka ******* coffee shops) flooding. Too funny what these liberal weenies come up with!

I live in a county north of San Francisco where I see at least 15 Tesla's a day. The owner's don't realize how much electricity it takes to charge their cars...yet they think they are carbon neutral.....go figure..

If risk of coastal flooding had any basis, municipalities would be required to disclose the risk in their bond offerings. In addition, coastal mortgages would be redlined/not available. The GW scare is all about accelerated taxation.

I so love this discussion. This is almost too easy. And I love the part about housing migrants in "spare beds".

From Breitbart:

Quote:
Drivers will be forced off the roads in Ireland and the population packed into “higher density” cities under a long-awaited climate plan which will ‘revolutionise’ people’s lifestyle and behaviours, according to local media.

“Nudge” policies such as huge tax hikes, as well as bans and red tape outlined in the plan, will pave the way to a “vibrant” Ireland of zero carbon emissions by 2050 according to the government, which last year committed to boost the country’s 4.7 million-strong population by a further million with mass migration.

In order to avert a “climate apocalypse”, the government plans to force people “out of private cars because they are the biggest offenders for emissions”, according to transport minister Shane Ross whose proposals — which include banning fossil fuel vehicles from towns and cities nationwide — are posed to cripple ordinary motorists, local media reports.

Launching the plan in Dublin, leader Leo Varadkar outlined his vision for an Ireland of ‘higher density’ cities consisting of populations whose lifestyles and behaviours have been totally transformed by ‘carrot and stick’ policies outlined in the climate plan.

“Our approach will be to nudge people and businesses to change behaviour and adapt new technologies through incentives, disincentives, regulations and information,” the globalist prime minister said.

“We are going to change how electricity is produced and consumed, how our homes and workplaces are heated; the way we travel; the types of vehicles we purchase; and how food is produced.

“It’s about vibrant, populated city centres, liveable, with excellent amenities and transport as we embrace higher densities.”

The document, which was unveiled on Tuesday, features more than 180 measures to decarbonise the Irish economy including making private car ownership prohibitively expensive — with petrol and diesel car sales banned by 2030, a date by which it says general carbon tax will be increased from €20 a tonne to “at least” €80.

In addition, the plans demand that coal and peat-fired power stations are replaced with wind farms and other “green” energy sources in order to meet the requirement that 70 per cent of electricity will be generated from renewables by 2030.

But plans to dramatically slash carbon emissions by ditching tried and tested energy sources such as coal and nuclear in favour of renewables will necessarily result in a collapse in living standards according to scientists including Cambridge engineering professor Michael Kelly, who has previously explained that such proposals “represent total madness”.

“In energy terms the current generation of renewable energy technologies alone will not enable a civilised modern society to continue,” he asserted in a peer-reviewed paper published in 2016, pointing out that renewables such as solar, wind, and hydro power supply just seven per cent of electricity needs globally while “the rate at which fossil fuels are growing is seven times that at which the low carbon energies are growing”.

The Hughes Medal-decorated physicist cautioned: “The call to decarbonise the global economy by 80% by 2050 can now only be described as glib in my opinion, as the underlying analysis shows it is only possible if we wish to see large parts of the population die from starvation, destitution or violence in the absence of enough low-carbon energy to sustain society.”

So you found some Irish politicians whose ideas you disagree with...

Curiously, you will still find plenty of private homes and cars in Ireland. It’s almost as if the quoted sources aren’t actually the shadowy climate illuminati you seem convinced are going to take away your freedoms any day now.

You haven’t refuted my point that “Agenda 21” is nothing but a set of goals for international cooperation.

I respect that you don’t want policies to resolve policy change that limit personal freedoms. I even agree to an extent. That has nothing to do with the underlying facts about climate.

Actually, coastal bonds and mortgages are an issue. Take it from Black Rock, one of the largest investment firms in the world:

https://www.blackrockblog.com/2019/0...to-portfolios/

And mortgages in coastal area are starting to be a problem due to the cost of flood insurance- mortgage underwriters will not fund mortgages without it on the coast. The only reason you can get flood insurance in a lot of coastal areas is that it’s federally subsidized.

Why do you assume they think anything at all about carbon? A good gearhead friend of mine daily drives a Tesla. Nothing to do with the environment- he wanted a car that could do 0-60 in under 3 seconds while staying a quiet and comfortable commuter car.

That said, electricity generation is more efficient than internal combustion. Power generation is increasingly switching to natural gas, which burns cleaner than gasoline.

Even if you don’t believe in climate change, you should appreciate that EVs will greatly reduce smog in urban areas.

Actually, it would be more profitable to be a climate change denying scientist. You get invited on Fox, etc.... the real climate scientists mostly labor in obscurity for peanuts. Seriously- wages in science are awful compared to the time/effort of getting a PhD.

Anyone/everyone is practicing anti-science when they bash CO2 as a "pollutant." It's not. CO2 is required for all plant life...for all food...the opposite of a pollutant.

Bring on this so-called disaster already then. We're tired of waiting for the end of days being re-announced every 20 years.

Hmm, I though CO2 was organic, like oil. :-)

Water is vital for life too, but drink too much water and it can kill you. C02 isn’t inherently a pollutant, but radically altering the amount in the admosphere could be a big problem for the current species. In pre historic times, there have been mass extinctions when the carbon balance shifted.
