Senator Elizabeth Warren keeps announcing new 5-year plans every 5 minutes and she’s polling in the top 4. So, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who’s polling at 0%, decided that it would be a good idea to join the plan train.
In a video modestly titled, “My plan to save our planet,” Gillibrand vows to umm, save the planet. Also she promises, “I will start a green energy race with China.”
That’s like challenging Bill Gates to a self-stabbing contest. You’ll probably win only because he won’t show up.
Gillibrand’s plan to save the planet, will “mobilize $10 trillion in public and private funding over the next decade”.
Except this isn’t so much a plan as a set of vague promises with no details. And occasionally, utterly insane proposals.
“In a decade, I’ll strive to get us to 100% clean, renewable, and zero-carbon electricity,” Gillibrand promises.
Does she even understand what any of that means or what it would take to get the entire country within a decade to solar and wind?
Also Gillibrand plans to make the price of gas a lot more expensive.
“So as president, I will create a Climate Change Mitigation Trust Fund, funded by an excise tax on fossil fuel production to generate $100 billion annually for climate mitigation projects. The fossil fuel industry — not taxpayers — will pay,” Gillibrand claims.
It’s hard to know if she’s really this stupid or if she thinks the voters are this stupid.
Raising the cost of fuel production will raise gas prices. And everyone, taxpayers and Democrats, will end up paying.
