How to destroy a state – Committing suicide by edict

“Washington State: Clean power goal of zero-carbon electricity by 2045 is now law,” reads the headline. LAW! As far as I’m concerned, Washington State is committing economic suicide.

“Gov. Jay Inslee signed a package of bills Tuesday to combat climate change headlined by legislation to rid Washington’s electric grid of fossil-fuel-generated power by 2045,” the article burbles.

“The law sets a 2025 deadline (that’s only six years away!) for utilities to end all reliance on coal, and a 2045 deadline to end use of natural-gas-generated electricity.”

“Puget Sound Energy (PSE), which serves more than 1.1 million electric customers, got nearly 60 percent of its electricity from coal and natural gas in 2017.”

Other parts of the green agenda are also now embedded in state law, according to the Daily Sheeple.

Inslee also tried, but failed, to impose a clean-fuels standard on the state that would have required continuous reductions in carbon pollution from gasoline and other transportation fuels.

In my opinion this man – who is, incredibly, running for President of the United States, presents an imminent danger to humanity.

  1. It may be more homicide than suicide. Washington state is the biggest hydroelectric generator in the nation and exports a lot of low cost renewable power to California and Nevada. How much of the WA fossil generation will be replaced by reduced power exports to other states? California already imports nearly a third of its power from its neighbors so may lose its lowest cost supply by this action.

  2. I found oil train data on WA ST Dept of Ecology. About 30% of oil inbound to WA is by rail at around 3 billion gallons a year.
    That oil is light sweet crude and is feed stock for our refineries.
    That’ll leave a mark.

  3. The agenda here is pretty clear, the ending western financial dominance. After years of infiltrating our educational system the Socialists conditioned this generation to accept this decline as part of social justice. Notice BTW that China and India are not required to reduce emissions by the social justice warriors.

  4. This must be the will of The People as they are the ones who elected the idiots that passed it into law.
    Whose stupider? The law makers or those that empower them?

    • John the 1st,
      The cities of seattle, Tacoma, Olympia are the ones electing these degenerate dictators, mainly seattle. There are some scattered around the state that are democrat socialists but for the most part we are concerned this once great state is doomed if these dictators, meaning, governor, lt. governor, most leglesators, can’t be removed…

  5. I’ve always thought the zero emissions activists should get what they want – an immediate cut back in 70 – 80% of available energy and a taste of the real consequences.

    More power to the guy – when he gets what he wants the vast majority of the population will see reality and that will end support for lunatic climate alarm.

    The sooner the better – do it !

  6. Will Gov. Jay Inslee take responsibility for this disaster when it occurs? And it will occur. When businesses move out of the state because of higher electrical prices, will he take responsibility for that also? We only can hope there are enough common sense people in Washington state that wake up to the disaster before it is too late. The $15 dollar minimum wage fiasco in Seattle should have taught them something, but it is obvious that leftist are incapable of learning from their mistakes.

  7. Coastal “blue” states are violating the commerce clause of the Constitution by imposing blockades on energy producing states. NY is blocking all new natural gas pipelines, thereby forcing MA to import LNG from Russia to have enough natural gas in winter. OR and WA are preventing MT from exporting coal, thereby impoverishing the Native Americans there. Liberals are committing economic suicide.

  8. Washington state hydroelectric power accounts for 2/3 of Washington’s electric power. Mother Natures Renewable Solar Powered Energy. Every bill written excludes hydroelectric power as a Renewable Source. When the Government Controls your Energy, your Healthcare and you Income, they will control YOU.

  9. It is not only overthere but also overhere in north-west-EU. Paying a lot of tax to change the climate. What is sustainable is the idea that climate can be changed by human beings. There is a turn-off-on button in everyone’s head for climate, implementated by politicians. Media never want to talk about rising food-shortages caused by a volatile weatherpattern. Only having vacation has settled in the mind of the weatherforecasters. Now it is rather warm in parts of Russia and before that very cold.

  10. oh I d think the gov will be removed either by vote or other means(insanity springs to mind;-) well before the dates hes set. though I do know someone from that area and they ARE very fullon in agw belief.
    as for the train bans , Id think warren buffet and buddies will rerout around if possible.

  11. Unless they are going to produce electricity by driving generators with the power of magnetic repulsion engines to feed the grid and convert all vehicles to having on board HHO generators that split water to make hydrogen and oxygen to power engines instead of using hydro carbon fuels I would say that government has made a serious error in legislation based on science fraud and the undue influence of a group of wealthy and dominant people whose goals are not in sync with the best interests of society and the future of the nations they live in.

  12. On the record, global continental glaciations vanished c. 14,400 YBP (BC 12,400); from late Pliocene times some 3.6-million YBP, cyclically recurrent, plate-tectonic induced Ice Ages have lasted an average 102 kiloyears, interspersed with median 12,250-year interstadials such as the latest Holocene Interglacial Epoch (skewed 1,500 years by the cometary-meteoritic Younger Dryas “cold shock” of 11,950 – 10,450 YBP).

    On this basis, converting to the Roman calendar, the Holocene ended 12,250 + 3,500 – 14,400 = AD 1350, coincident with Kamchatka’s strato-volcano Kambalny Eruption which precipitated a 500-year Little Ice Age (LIA) ending in AD 1850/1890 with a 140-year “amplitude compression” rebound of alternating fifty-forty-thirty-twenty year warm-cold periods culminating c. AD 2030.

    As Earth enters a 70+ year “dead sun” Grand Solar Minimum similar to that of 1645 – 1715, when wolves froze to death in Rhineland forests and Louis XIV’s goblet iced over in his Palace of Versailles, death-eating Luddite sociopaths’ willful sabotage of global coal, oil, nuclear energy economies is a criminally crony-democidal ploy worthy of 20th Century communo-fascist movements at their very worst.

  13. They seemed to have forgotten transportation carbon which is a significant portion of carbon dioxide produced. No need for airplanes, airports, airplane manufacturing, railroads, cars, trucks, roads, gas stations ,etc.

    What about federal government especially the military? If the military doesn’t have the basic infrastructure, then what’s the point of defenses.

    I don’t think Washington has thought this legislation “suicide” to the full extant.

    • No need for the modern world appears to be the way of it. They don’t seem to be offended by the ways of the ancient world though. The ways of ancient Babylon, Assyria, Ammon, Moab, Egypt, Canaan, Sodom and Gomorrah. The modern Hebrews and Hebrew wannabees seem to want to bring it all back and wallow in a evil ungodly PC despotism. We don’t need their crap in the America’s or Europe. It is time for them to get out. One way trip.

  14. I live in WA State I am embarrassed to say so anymore.

    Our Governor is a joke. His plans are ludicrous. He needs to stop signing bills for what he thinks will increase his chances on his bid for 2020.

    He needs to concentrate on what is good for his people, let the people decide, put it up for a vote of the people.

  15. the dates for the full implementation of these ridiculous measures is not until there will be winters to remember. the coming mini ice age will be evident and these stupid laws will be moot or not.

  16. How about the folks who have their rail service cut off just to “help” Washington achieve its goal of zero carbon by stopping all shipments of coal, oil, and natural gas to Washington. Add in cancellation of all flights in and out and no diesel trains of any sort allowed to cross the border into Washington.

    I’m sure that inside a week they would feel the heat, so see the light… or maybe that’s feel the cold….

    Might need to extend that to Oregon and California too. When folks protest the action, just point out “We are doing our part to save the planet from Global Warming by helping them!”

    • This would crush the idiots in lower mainland BC who drive across the border to gas up their cars, while protesting pipelines!

      The stupid…it burns.

  17. Robert apart from getting the jump on the soon to be streaming south hordes of climate refugees are there other reasons for your relocation to Texas?

  18. One either respects this government and commits suicide or rebels against it. Which will it be? I would think that somewhere in the next few years the guns will come out assuming there is any serious effort to enforce such laws. Society is not a suicide pact so expect a turn towards violence by those who cannot sensibly leave if necessary to put a stop to this. We will then see as a test of arms who continues to support this.

    Of course the Federal Government may intervene but that is another story. One which may only serve to extend the tale.

    More to the point what use is democracy (electoral choice and its associated politics) with an insane electorate? Whether overturning these laws requires violence or not how can anyone trust the electorate to do the sensible thing? How many residents of Washington will be willing to trust their lives to such decision making? Democracy seems to be dissolving into a sea of farce. I really doubt democracy will survive this mad age which may be the whole point.

  19. Not the only governor who’s doing that sort of thing to the people of his/her state.

    California USED to be a great place to live! … wouldn’t consider it now, given the lunatics in charge and waht they’ve done to the place.

  20. The governor is betting he will be out of office, retired or defeated in an election, long before the full impact of these measures is felt, so he will then get the credit for implementing the green agenda, without having to face any of the consequences or backlash from state residents. I wonder if any of these measures is a violation of federal policy?

  21. Left WA in summer 2017. In OK now. High of 114 degrees F last summer. The politicians are probably crooks here like in WA but more circumscribed by reality and thus less immediately dangerous to human life than in WA. WA economy/politics were re-engineered in 1993 by Clintons via the spotted owl hoax used to shut down lumber and mining industries in OR and WA to protect spotted owls.
    This destroyed the rural economy in both states and tilted the state to the big city machine in Seattle. Statewide zoning prevented growth outside the machine’s control. Both WA an OR went from swing states to Socialist provinces ruled by urban machines in Seattle Portland.

    Stupidity and corruption will do to Seattle what it did to Detroit, but it may take longer because the beauty of the area makes it harder to walk away from Seattle than from Detroit. Winter is so mild there that fully equipped and manned snow control services fail for want of practice opportunities. Summer is similarly mild. But stupidity is severe…
