The Elite Must Spend All Our Money Saving Us—Then, We Must Thank Them

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.

    Not only do the Elite want trillions to curb “climate change”, they want more trillions to prepare the proles for the results of Climate Change. If anyone believes this, they can come to me. My consortium is building the Pacific Bridge from North America to Japan and Korea. The first hundred billion raised will go to “studies.”  Australian and New Zealand are being approached for government subsidies. Like all government projects, it won’t be a cost, it will be an “investment.”

Budget Chief: Denying Climate Change ‘Makes You a Member of the Flat Earth Society’
By Penny Starr

(CNSNews.com) – Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat.

“The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.”

     Translation: We need more money. We know how to spend it. You don’t.

Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch that oversees the federal budget and a range of other executive branch functions, including oversight of federal regulations and congressional legislation.

At CAP, Donovan spoke about what he claimed is the cost of not spending federal dollars – or taxpayer dollars – and local and state funds on “climate solutions and climate preparedness.”

“Climate action is a must do,” Donovan said. “Climate inaction is a can’t do.

<insert>

    And they say all the great rhetoricians are gone.

“And climate denial scores,” Donovan said. “ And I don’t mean scores like the average person would think – scoring points on a board.

“I mean that it scores in the budget,” Donovan said.

“Climate denial will cost us billions and billions of dollars,” Donovan said. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus.

“It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society,” said Donovan, citing a controversial organization that dates back to ancient times founded on the belief that the earth is a disc not a sphere. The society still exists online today and on Twitter.

“Climate denial doesn’t just fly in the face of the overwhelming judgment of science,” Donovan said. “It is fiscally foolish.

“And while we cannot say with certainty that any individual event is caused by climate change, it’s clearly increasing the frequency and intensity of many different kinds of severe weather events,” Donovan said.

      Again with the severe weather events. Severe weather events are not increasing. Where are the destructive hurricanes which were to increase dramatically after Katrina?  The way to perfect a theory is to ignore all the data.

“The costs of climate change add up, and ignoring the problem only makes it worse,” Donovan said.

Along with Donovan’s address, CAP – a liberal think tank founded by John Podesta, now top advisor to Obama – also distributed a July report entitled: “One Storm Shy of Despair; A Climate-Smart Plan for the Administration to Help Low-income Communities.”

    Low income—the liberals mantra. Must help the low income people.

The report concludes: “The new normal of more extreme weather triggered by climate change creates costly risks with devastating consequences, particularly in low-income communities. The time is now for leadership across all levels of government, and coordination across sectors and with the private sector, to reduce these risks.

"By improving the quality of our housing and infrastructure, reducing environmental hazards in communities, and increasing economic security, the president, state and local governments, and Congress can build resilient, safe, and equitable communities where all Americans can prosper.”

   If one ever needs a rant to show how the Elite believe, a) We need saving and, b) The Elite must be the ones to do it, all for our own good, of course, this is the document to put on exhibit.
