No deal: Senate blocks Green New Deal

Giving up primary energy sources in favour of vast expense on inferior alternatives is ‘progressive’? Not in the real world. We’re not trying to be experts on American politics here, but any outbreak of sanity on (supposedly) climate-related matters must rate as progress, even if not deemed ‘progressive’.

The Senate on Tuesday blocked the Green New Deal, a progressive climate change resolution that Republicans view as prime fodder heading into the 2020 presidential election, reports The Hill.

The Senate voted 0-57 on taking up the resolution, with 43 Democrats voting present.

The measure was widely expected to fall short of the 60 votes needed to overcome the procedural hurdle.

Most Democrats were expected to vote present, a move that allowed them to avoid taking a formal position. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.) and Angus King (I-Maine) voted with Republicans against the measure.

Republicans have seized on the measure as an example of Democrats shifting to the left ahead of next year’s presidential election.

Every Democratic senator running for the party’s nomination in 2020 has co-sponsored the Senate Green New Deal resolution.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) lashed out at the proposal ahead of the vote on Tuesday, calling it an item on the “far-left wish list that many of our Democratic colleagues have rushed to embrace.”

“The American people will see, they will see which of their senators can do the common sense thing and vote no on this destructive socialist daydream. And they will see which senators are so fully committed to radical left-wing ideology that they can’t even vote no on self-inflicted economic ruin,” he said.

    Pentagon releases list of military bases most at risk to climate change
    BY ELLEN MITCHELL – 03/27/19

    Since ‘climate change’ is code for (alleged) ‘man-made climate change’, are they still imagining they can buy themselves a military-base-friendly climate? This is nonsense on stilts surely.

    Hearing the sponsor of this resolution scream bloody murder about the evil Republicans daring to bring their resolution to the floor for a vote was quite a joy.

    oldbrew, I’m a retired Field Artilleryman. We took great pride in being an all weather, all terrain, day or night lethal force. Military bases are like landfills in that you try not to site them in great places. In the future we won’t be able to fight in inclement weather?

    Bob Greene – there’s a bit of cheating going on, because in the original report we find:

    Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE-Langley AFB), Virginia, has experienced 14 inches in sea level rise since 1930 due to localized land subsidence and sea level rise. Flooding at JBLELangley, with a mean sea level elevation of three feet, has become more frequent and severe.

    Click to access sec_335_ndaa-report_effects_of_a_changing_climate_to_dod.pdf

    ‘localized land subsidence’ is clearly nothing to do with the state of the atmosphere.
    And sea level rise can’t be due to sea level rise either 😂

    They can’t put military sites on known ‘flood-prone’ locations and then blame climate change when they get flooded, or at least have to be classed as flood risks.

    I only read bits of it but there’s probably a lot of other flakey stuff in there to beef up the list.

    I love the way the pontificating putzes were forced to show their hand by bringing this to the floor for a vote, ha ha ha!

    Congress just wants to do this one little bit at a time. The old boiling frog strategy.
