Obama Warns Growing Middle Class is Threatening the Environment

The one consistent thing with Obama is that the middle class is always the enemy. The middle class the enemy of the poor. The middle class is the enemy of big government. The middle class is even the enemy of the planet.

Darn that middle class. If only there was some way to tax and regulate it out of existence.

“Peace with justice means refusing to condemn our children to a harsher, less hospitable planet,” he said in a speech at Berlin’s Brandenberg Gate. “The effort to slow climate change requires bold action.”

Obama touted his first-term work on green energy and boosting auto efficiency rules, but added: “We know we have to do more – and we will do more.” …

“With a global middle class consuming more energy every day, this must now be an effort of all nations, not just some.  For the grim alternative affects all nations – more severe storms, more famine and floods, new waves of refugees, coastlines that vanish, oceans that rise. This is the future we must avert,” Obama said.

“This is the global threat of our time.  And for the sake of future generations, our generation must move toward a global compact to confront a changing climate before it is too late. That is our job. That is our task. We have to get to work,” he said, according to a White House transcript.

Peace with justice used to mean welfare and affirmative action. Now it means a global ecofascism with carbon taxes administered by his Green crony capitalists so that the big donors of the left have more stolen money to stuff into their swollen pockets while the middle class bleeds.

And if we don’t, that Eco-catastrope that their pet researchers made up and that has been disproven again and again will destroy the planet.

And do you want to risk destroying the planet just to preserve the middle class? Of course. Better put on your green sandals, your eco-armband and go marching on a carbon confiscation tour.
