We live in strange times. We have seen an egocentric billionaire reality star become President. Now we are experiencing something equally bizarre. Much of the Democratic Party is marching in lockstep with a 29-year-old former waitress.
Yesterday she provided more details on her Green New Deal. It is so wildly unpractical that someone suggested that it sounds like a satire written by Republicans.
Let me take just one example. The plan calls for the elimination of all fossil fuels in eleven years. There has been a push for renewable energy since the Carter administration forty years ago. So far it accounts for just 11% of our energy. The idea that we could go to 100% renewable energy in just over a decade just isn’t possible.
Her plan would make every train, ship, tractor and plane along with virtually every car and truck obsolete. Believing that we could recreate our entire transportation system using technology that hasn’t been developed is absolutely ridiculous.
Solar panels and windmills are great as long as the sun shines and the wind blows. Without fossil fuels as a backup, we would spend much of our time without power.
Imagine a military without planes, ships or tanks. I guess we are supposed to go to war using golf carts.
Democrats have made getting rid of President Trump their number one goal. They sure won’t get there with a candidate spouting this nonsense.
