“You try it, you do it, ‘cause you’re not, so until you do it, I’m the boss, How ‘bout that?” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when urging regulations and changes to address “climate change.”

Patrick Moore, founder and past president of Greenpeace replied to her comments in a March 2 tweet that “if fossil fuels were banned, every tree in the world would be cut down for cooking and heating, and it would bring about mass death.”

Transportation is 90% fossil fuel. Without it, nothing can be transported as far as food for 8 billion people.

Some would like to have a little bit of warming by a couple of degrees or more to help Canada and Russia to not to be so cold! There is nothing to be afraid of. Most of the scientists who say so are on grants. They study for something new and there is not anything new. Carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels is a benefit to the environment, forestry, climate and agriculture. And, carbon dioxide and water are needed for life.

Moore said that by the mid-1980s, Greenpeace was “hijacked by the extreme left. It is driving a dangerous movement on the political front.” Thousands of scientists agree that fracking does not harm our drinking water or animal life.

Weather Channel founder John Coleman said that “Al Gore and his cronies get richer from a global warming hoax and science lies. They push their agenda while lining their pockets.”

It is easy to recycle paper and plastic and not to improperly discard it anywhere. We have been requiring it by law for decades. Al Gore has earned from $2 million to more than $100 million by investing in “green tech” companies. Every time there’s a hurricane, Democrats cry that the sky is falling like in the Chicken Little story.

China causes more air pollution than the United States and Europe combined, and that is being addressed by President Trump.

I #StandWithCheeseBurgers and do not agree with Ocasio-Cortez and others who want to do away with cows due to their flatulence and surely no one is going to give up flying on airplanes. When a Democrat speaks, an angel loses its wings.

Democrats are trying to make money and gain elected offices over a perfectly natural phenomenon that has occurred for thousands of years, and at the same time suggesting that young people should not have children to control population growth. See 1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.
