Since the European rulers are trying to justify carbon taxes, we need to ask about Jeb Bush and climate change.
As I mentioned yesterday, Jeb Bush is on a European tour as if Europe somehow matters to his election. For whatever reason, he is out there trying to win favor in Germany and elsewhere.
But there is other recent news. The G7 just claimed that they are going to end the use of fossil fuels by the end of this century. That is, of course, totally preposterous outside some kind of completely unforeseeable discovery or invention. The point of such grandstanding is to justify carbon taxes and thus get rich and impoverish the populace.
Germany hosted the G7 conference.
So Jeb Bush is in Germany talking to the powers that be and he didn’t say anything about climate change? No one asked him about it?
I did some news searching about Jeb Bush and climate change. I found many stories about the media bashing him for expressing skepticism on the issue. For example, this Washington Post blog entry is pretty typical: “Jeb’s careful dismissal of climate change sounds an awful lot like George W.”
The Post writer calls Jeb Bush’s statement “either confused or disingenuous.” Personally, I don’t think there is any chance the Post writer is confused. I think he is just being disingenuous. The case for man-made global warming is fiction.
But notice the actual statement that Jeb Bush made:
At a house party in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Jeb Bush addressed the subject of climate change, one of several topics where his views are on the left-most edge of the GOP’s consensus views.
“The climate is changing,” he said, according to The Post’s Ed O’Keefe. “I don’t think the science is clear on what percentage is man-made and what percentage is natural. It’s convoluted. And for people to say the science is decided on this is just really arrogant, to be honest with you. It’s this intellectual arrogance that now you can’t have a conversation about it even.”
So there is climate change and some percentage of it is man-made. And we need to have a conversation about how much is man-made.
Does anyone remember Barack Obama claiming to oppose same-sex “marriage”?
If you want to trust Jeb Bush to tell you the truth during his Presidential campaign, that is your right. But I think you are fooling yourself. He is obviously trying to win an election so that he can “grow in office.” He has put everything in place to quickly change his mind on the subject.
