WATCH: Extremist Professor Says US Wants ‘Down Fee’ of ‘Trillions’ to Struggle Local weather Change


A leftist assistant professor argued that the U.S. must spend trillions of taxpayer {dollars} to battle local weather change. And spending “trillions” is simply the “down cost,” in response to her perspective.

College of California, Santa Barbara Assistant Professor Leah Stokes joined liberal information group Democracy Now! to push her extremist imaginative and prescient for U.S. spending on what she known as the “local weather disaster.” Co-host Juan González requested Stokes to deal with the “state roles, uh, in addressing, uh, the uh, the local weather disaster.” Stokes stated the “states have an vital function to play,” however she pivoted to emphasise her fixation on federal spending. “[T]he federal authorities actually has the ability of the purse. And we’re not speaking about, type of, a one-time surplus. We’re speaking about spending trillions of {dollars} on the local weather disaster,” Stokes bleated. 

Her nutty proposal didn’t cease there. She proceeded to stipulate that her prescription of “trillions of {dollars}” in spending was “actually only a downpayment on the size of the disaster.

So, a trillion right here, a trillion there, and “soon we’re talking real money”? The up to date logic of the late GOP Senator Everett Dirksen’s facetious warning appears to be the considering behind the professor’s understanding of economics.

Hoover Establishment Visiting Fellow Bjorn Lomborg already slapped down the leftist notion that the world is going through a “disaster” as a pretext for huge quantities of spending. Throughout the April 23 version of Kudlow on Fox Enterprise, Lomborg accused Biden of making an attempt to scare Individuals over an “existential disaster” myth: “You’re scaring youngsters, and also you’re scaring everybody by telling them that is an existential disaster. No, it’s not. The UN Local weather Panel doesn’t inform us that is an existential disaster.”

Lomborg identified that the Intergovernmental Panel on Local weather Change estimated that if “we do nothing” by the 2070s, “the web influence” will solely be the equal of the world inhabitants shedding “0.2 and a pair of p.c of their revenue.” Lomborg added: “[B]y then, after all, we’ll be 363 p.c as wealthy as what we’re right this moment. That’s the UN’s personal estimate. So, as a substitute of being 363 p.c as wealthy, we’ll solely be 356 p.c as wealthy. That’s not an existential disaster.”

If all presidents for the following 70 years adopted Biden in reducing emissions, Lomborg famous, “it’ll scale back temperatures trivially.” Lomborg stated the discount would solely be a meaningless “0.07° Fahrenheit. And that is via the UN local weather mannequin. So, it’s going to be very arduous. It’s going to be very expensive. It’ll have just about no influence.”
