There’s no time to waste when it comes to the existential threat of climate change. That’s why I’ve set a bold new goal of cutting U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at least in half by 2030.

anybody with even a junior high level of economics ( whoops bye Sanders, Warren, and AOC) knows if something costs more ,people consume less of it. So if climate change is an 'existential threat' ( yet another silly lw cliche) ,why try to lower prices???

I guess you are unaware that AOC is an Honors Grad from Columbia University, with a major in *wait for it*...economics?

LOL.
C'mon man, get informed, step up your game here.

Well- she graduated from BU, not Columbia, but it sure doesn't reflect well on that program now does it?
One wonders what lw mush these liberals are teaching.

You know what would bring gas prices down? Doubling down on green and renewable/sustainable energy technology, and yes, nuclear.

But y'all don't wanna talk about that, just wanna "drill baby drill" and turn love of fossil fuels into a personality. News update: love for a finite resource isn't a ****ing flex..

High gas prices hit the lowest earners the most.
They've already cut travel down to just essential trips and the US for some reason hates spending on public transport that can actually get people to work so they need a car.

I don't see any problem with a President saying this other than Klattu trying to condemn any Democrat President for saying anything.

I get the feeling that you'd get all hot and bothered if Biden made the statement "I like kittens and puppies!" and make out it's part of some socialist plot.

Doubling the green energy capacity worldwide would lead to an increase of 1.2% current green energy production capacity.

Its beyond stupid to demonize fossil fuel production and crush your citizens econmically over a green energy pipe dream that cant sustain power needs.

True, your thread titles are increasingly more specific self descriptions. You’ve definitely stepped it up in that area. That said, while I’m cool with self-deprecation, I still believe you are taking it too far.

This is a discussion forum. Formatting matters. All you have to do is copy and paste the tweet link. The forum does the rest for you. Your OPs look like garbage when you do it your way.

OK...but what if green energy were "doubled" in the US, and not the "world"? How much green energy US production would that be?

Go ahead, guess. (Hint: its way more than 1.2%)

"A befuddled confused old man"?

I had no idea that you were old, Klattu. Nonetheless, I am happy to see that you are finally waking up to the fact that you are befuddled and confused. It is a first step to recovery!

“The second half of the nineties witnessed a remarkable increase in the work being done on the presentation and solution of the problems of the Russian revolution. The appearance of a new revolutionary party, Narodnoye Pravo,[5] the growing influence and successes of the Social Democrats, the evolution within Narodnaya Volya[6]—all this has evoked a lively discussion on questions of programme both in study circles of socialist intellectuals and workers and in illegal literature. Regarding the latter sphere, reference should be made to “An Urgent Question” and the “Manifesto” (1894) of the Narodnoye Pravo Party, to theLeaflet of the Narodnaya Volya Group, to Rabotnik published abroad by the League of Russian Social-Democrats,[7]






“But how did this 29-year-old Latina, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, become the youngest woman ever elected to Congress?”

She was saying something people were wanting to hear and supported?
