This article by the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen reveals that their Green New Deal essentially relies on ‘tech optimism’, that is, betting on future technology not yet invented or discovered, to achieve their goals.
Green New Deal
The carrot-on-a-string is fixing the things that everyone knows desperately need fixing. The real payload is zero carbon, environmental justice, green transportation, alternative energy.
A National Climate Bank would aggregate $1 trillion to invest into transformative green infrastructure and ‘clean energy’ projects. This promotes pure Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy, but paid for by taxpayers.
Whether Sanders wins the Democrat nomination or not, the Green New Deal mania in America will have been established and burned into the minds of young socialist zealots who will soldier on to transform America into Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy.
Europe is creating and ingesting its own poison pill that will divert massive investments down an economic rabbit hole. The social fallout will never be attached to the root cause of their demise: mal-investment tied to baseless and anti-human policies.
The war on CO2 in the name of global warming is the worst case of mass hysteria ever experienced on planet earth. The EU has declared that it will sink a cool one trillion euros into its member states to be ‘net-zero’ by 2050.
The Green agenda has taken on a life of its own and will not be stopped except by total defeat. The “ban cars from city centers” movement is now global in scope, including in American cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Ireland is totally bought into global warming hysteria and Sustainable Development, and seeks an outright ban on cars that run on gas or diesel by outlawing registration on new purchases.
LA Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Green New Deal includes a tree-planting project to increase the size of the Urban Forest in order to mitigate global warming. This is like Nero playing the fiddle while Rome burned.
The Mayors of 80 major global cities declare undying support for Green New Deal ideology. Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti was elected Chairman of C40. The green insanity has infected Copenhagen, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Austin, London and Seattle among others.
