Discussing the goal of greenhouse gas emission reduction versus strengthening and modernizing infrastructure, Campany admitted, “We can go negative emissions tomorrow, and for everybody in Vermont we’re still going to be dealing with the same issues.”
Here’s a quick peek at what the Vermont Climate Council is planning to unload on us in a month, courtesy of Matt Cota of the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association.
This fall, state officials, local leaders and members of the Vermont Climate Council invite the public to attend one of several events to learn about the development of the state’s Climate Action Plan and help prioritize approaches.
The Vermont Climate Council continues its discussions about what they plan to do — or more accurately, what they are going to force you to do — in order to lower Vermont’s greenhouse gas emissions.
That’s just a sampler from these climate crazed activists who expect “rivers of money” — their description — to bring it all about. Hang on to your wallet.
The Climate Council would be wise to include asking the Legislature to modify the Global Warming Solutions Act to address issues resulting from weather extremes in its recommendations in the Climate Action Plan. The “solutions” cannot be all about technology and buying more stuff.
I’m willing to bet a large majority of voting taxpayers’ priority amongst this smorgasbord of spending choices is to keep their money for themselves with no interest in seeing it “redirected” away from their pay checks, savings accounts, wallets, and household budgets, especially for the purposes of putting their unemployed neighbor in a Prius.
At the July 26 meeting of the Vermont Climate Council, member Richard Cowart raised what he admitted might be “a thorny question.” Thorny or not, it was a very good one.
The Global Warming Solutions Act isn’t about the environment. It never was and never could be, as Vermont’s greenhouse gas contributions are a non-factor in impacting global climate trends. It’s about restructuring our government policy and our economy along the lines of Critical Race Theory using environmental concerns.
Yes, the Vermont Climate Council, the 23-member climate change task force whose numbers have swollen with the incorporation of a multitude of outside subcommittee members, want more money for themselves in their efforts to make your life less affordable.
The Vermont Climate Council has met just three times, but already concerns have surfaced about white supremacy and conflict of interest.
What 14 of these 15 these appointees have in common — or they wouldn’t have been appointed — is an unquestioning belief in the legislatively declared climate emergency, and the determination to make little Vermont a pioneer in appearing to do something about it.
