The Bernie Sanders Green New Deal

The Great Leap Forward imposed by communists under Mao Zedong killed about 43 million Chinese. Bernie Sanders may top that. His answer to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal would totally devastate the American economy, likely resulting in the death of a still higher percentage of the population.

This isn’t hyperbole. The proposals coming out of this top Democrat presidential candidate would make Pol Pot gasp in horror.

The price tag alone makes it obvious that the USA would not survive intact. Federal debt is already higher than the $21 trillion total annual economy, constituting a very serious problem that needs to be addressed. Sanders wants to spend $16.3 trillion to combat carbon emissions in the unfounded belief that they make the weather too warm.

This vast fortune of money that we don’t have would be spent taking a wrecking ball to the economy in order to inflict what Sanders calls “a wholesale transformation of our society.”

Via the Wall Street Journal:

To start, he’d switch electricity and transportation to 100% renewables by 2030. He would ban fracking; ban drilling offshore and on federal lands; ban “imports and exports of fossil fuels”; cancel oil pipelines already being built; and halt permitting of “new fossil fuel extraction, transportation, and refining infrastructure.”

Energy would become prohibitively expensive where available at all. Lights would go out across the country.

Yet Sanders promises that electricity would “be virtually free.” The word “free” works like magic to energize his supporters.

Anyone who truly believes that CO2 is harmful should advocate nuclear energy, which produces virtually none of it, is economically feasible, and has less impact on the environment that wind or solar. Not Bernie:

Nuclear power would be phased out. He calls it a “false solution” …

A false solution to a false problem would be fitting. But nuclear power is a viable option, so it won’t do.

Sanders would match Mao’s China not only for economic mismanagement, but also for vindictive tyranny:

He says that fossil-fuel companies, driven by “greed,” have “evaded taxes, desecrated tribal lands, exploited workers and poisoned communities.” He believes this amounts to “criminal activity,” and as President he would tell his Justice Department to pursue it …

Not only would he not allow the efficient production of energy, he would jail those who have provided it in the past.

As with AOC’s Green New Deal, the Sanders plan boils down to suppressing energy production and expanding the welfare state. It includes “free, universal school meals” and an expansion of the already overextended food stamp program.

He also wants to hand out free money to “farmers of color”; this may be implemented as another expansion of the insane Pigford Pigout, by which blacks have been able to collect other people’s money by claiming to be farmers.

Among the money-wasting proposals:

• $36 billion to help people “transform their lawns into food-producing or reforested spaces.”

As you can see, Bernie Sanders is rubber room crazy. People this crazy sometimes end up in charge. When that happens, millions die.

Meanwhile, the hoax that supposedly necessitates this maniacal scheme is collapsing. Unadulterated raw data shows that despite rising carbon levels, temperatures have remained basically flat since as far back as 1930.

Mao’s horrific Great Leap Forward at least attempted to accomplish something real: rapid industrialization. Democrat plans to inflict a Green New Deal are based on hype, misinformation, and fantasy.

  1. […] Already Germany has the most expensive energy in Europe due to green energy Dummheit. There is a limit to how much envirofascist lunacy an economy can withstand without collapsing — as we will quickly learn in the USA if Bernie Sanders has his way. […]

  3. […] urge other cities, states, and even the federal government to follow suit. If Bernie Sanders would promise to throw energy executives in prison for keeping the lights on, why shouldn’t other […]

  4. […] Treating energy companies as if they have leprosy is not only thuggish but insane. These people are responsible for the lights staying on, for our cars taking us where we need to go, and for Amazon being able to employ people. That’s why Bernie Sanders wants these capitalism enablers thrown in jail. […]
