HUD Is Moving Whole Town

As the Inflation Aggravation Act reminds us, there is no limit to how much money the federal government can waste on the imaginary climate crisis. Neither is there a limit to the level of tyranny the global warming hoax can be exploited to inflict. Ideologically deranged social engineers might decide that whole towns need to be moved:

The Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded the state [of Louisiana] $48.3 million in 2016 to resettle the [Jean Charles Choctaw Nation] tribe to higher ground, the first federally funded effort to move an entire community because of climate change. Officials saw a chance to create a model of wholesale voluntary relocation for a country that urgently needs to prepare for many more such projects.

“Urgently” because the hysterical prognostications of disastrously rising seas that we have been assailed with for decades might someday become accurate, according to the media — and not only in Louisiana, which is a gigantic swamp located in Hurricane Alley, largely below sea level, and which is losing land mass not because of nonexistent melting glaciers but because the state is sinking.

Relocation experts warn that climate resettlement in the U.S. will fall far short without … far more money … and greater sensitivity to the needs of communities affected by the United States’ long history of forced relocation and racism. Those are often the places most threatened by the climate crisis.

As we have been told, climate fluctuation — which has existed as long as the planet has — is racist.

Is global warming really responsible for the shrinking of Isle de Jean Charles? Only partially — and theoretically. But fossil fuels are allegedly involved, and everyone knows that fossil fuels and climate change are practically the same thing:

This loss was caused both by global warming and local oil and gas development. Dredging canals for fossil fuel infrastructure near the island undermined the land and hastened its descent into the Gulf, researchers say. Climate change on its own would have caused the island to disappear more slowly by sending more frequent and worse storms and increasing sea levels.

“Would have” is theoretical musing, not journalism. Virtually all reporting on this topic makes heavy use of terms like “would have,” “might conceivably,” et cetera. As noted in the context of climate change supposedly causing megafloods and pudgy children,

“Could” is the operative word in liberal media stories about the weather.

If all goes well with Isle de Jean Charles, future wholesale relocations will be less voluntary. Not everyone is on board with the liberal agenda. If most people believed in the global warming hoax, the hottest city in the USA would not recently have been named the fastest growing 5 years in a row.

A recent ruling in New York could constitute a setback on our road to utopia:

On July 8, 2022, Judge Ronald Ploetz ruled that the “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” regulation is unconstitutional and “violative of New York State law as promulgated and enacted, and therefore null, void and unenforceable as a matter of law.”

This put the kibosh on detention camps planned by Governor Kathy Hochul (although Attorney General Letitia James is appealing the decision).

It is no good making arrangements to move whole cities because climate change, only so that a recalcitrant judge can rule that Big Government cannot tell us where we have to live. Democrats have another reason to use the TERM Act to take control of the Supreme Court.
