Washington Gov Claims ‘Just 59 Days’ To Save Children From Global Warming

Wants to steal $3.3 billion dollars from Washington residents for a useless boondoggle.


Washington Governor Claims ‘Just 59 Days’ To Save Children From Global Warming

By Michael Bastasch

(Excerpts) – Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee warned there was “just 59 days” to save future generations from “an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.”

Inslee went on a lengthy Twitter rant in efforts to convince the state legislature to pass legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities.

Inslee’s plan would tax carbon dioxide emissions at $20 a ton in 2019, that would gradually rise at 3.5 percent above inflation each following year. Inslee’s office estimates it will raise $3.3 billion over the next four years.

The plan could raise household electricity prices five percent, and gas prices by about 10 percent, according to official estimates.

In other words, Inslee wants to steal $3.3 billion dollars from Washington residents who voted down his last carbon tax plan by a wide margin in 2016.

  1. Droughts have been happening for millennia, twice the duration of the California drought, and there’s no drought in Washington right now, and I’d understand if people wanted a sunny day or two. Washington is known to be wet, though, coastally.

  2. It seems the main problem is a mathematical misunderstanding about what average is, average doesn’t mean you are supposed to live in a climate controlled environment!!!

  3. He is a lying scoundrel, but just so I get this straight what does he intend to do in 59 days that will “save the planet?” Tax and regulate and then what? Where will the 3.3 billion go? To refund the state taxpayers he ripped off and what of the effect on businesses and employment?

    Democratic administrators need to learn some basic economics before they offer themselves as candidates. We have one example after another from these blue states that their legislators have NO idea how to run a state/country. Surely the citizens of these leftwing states are figuring this out and IF/WHEN they do, that will the end of the Democratic Party as we know it– and good riddance. It is a pustulent pest like a boil on a carbuncle.

  4. We’ve had decades of
    Democratic La La gov’t
    folley&no matter how
    goofey their policies are,
    they will not vote in a voice of COMMON SENSE!

  5. Ah the old “only 5% increase in power costs” take it from a south Australia the tax will cripple the state and destroy your power grid

  6. Nothing but war criminals taxing the poor to feed the rich coorporations in the name of “crimate change”.

  7. Seems to me the governor needs to read Steinback’s “East of Eden”… yeah, the story takes place in California… but it highlights how the west coast historically has had cycles of drought then flooding; i.e. ““an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.” is just normal for that part of the word, and ignored to one’s peril.

    Has nothing to do with global “warming” … (as I sit here writing from Virginia where it’s about 20 F degrees lower than normal temperatures for this time of the year (although fortunately the forecast IS for a bit of warming over the next day or so).

  8. mans a blithering idiot.
    and as for carbon taxes…well theyre a great money spinner for the “chosen acolytes” with money
    not much good for the average joe however
    since the carbon con started down under our power costs are 30c a kwh for homes industry more and still rising

  9. Samuel Johnson is claimed to have stated that ‘Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel’, I would suggest using children as hostages to a political scam may exceed that.

    • Hawking is vastly overrated. Supposed to be a physicist, but doesn’t understand that the AGW hypothesis is contrary to the first and second laws of thermodynamics. I have his book, “The Grand Design” in my library. In the first half of it he waxes lyrical about buckyballs behaving (to him) inexplicably around corners and through apertures. Light refraction (Optics) explains that adequately, In the second half of his book he indulges in phantasies about the Universe. I call that “Phantaphysics”. If one can believe in the “Big Bang” , “The Expanding Universe”, and “Black Holes”, then AGW is only a step further.

  10. IF Inslee and other Buffoons were really serious about Carbon Dioxide Emissions, then Soft Drink Mixing Machines would all be in the Landfill, YESTERDAY.

  11. It’s almost going to be fun to watch the continuing stupidity and foolishness of the Democrat states while lying Chuck Schumer stands up in the Senate trying to sound like a voice of reason and failing desperately.

  12. The good people of Washington state need to run him out of office as soon as possible. If Seattle did not control the politics there, he probably would not be in office anyway.

  13. Inslee has undoubtedly become infected with the “Gov. Moonbeam virus” there’s no other way he could have hatched such a stupid idea. Which storm or drought will be denied access to the state of Washington; what mechanism will be employed to thwart these phenomenon? Will it be a huge door or gate? Or maybe a toll gate surely that will stop ’em. How tall does it have to be; maybe a thousand feet, 2 miles–I guess whatever it takes!

    This is nothing but an organize crime family ploy by a moron that should be forced from office.

    Washington residents would do well to examine the impact of Taxation levies on Carbon in other countries, Such as Australia and in particular South Australia, the UK, and even Germany.
    The people least able to pay the levies the working poor have to choose between heating and eating. The working poor would be better voting Inslee out of office and avoid the massive impact on what they have to make ends meet.
    In the UK the socialist (Labour) inspired Climate Change Act has destroyed UK manufacturing and its heavy industry, by its reliance on Carbon Taxes to export the jobs and the manufacturing plant to China to “avoid” any carbon emissions in the UK.
    In the UK and in Australia, Coal Electricity Plants have been put beyond use, by simple Government sanctioned vandalism to destroy them, and waste the Hundreds of Millions $ to build them in the first place. Simply to reduce the miniscule amount of CO2 emitted into the Atmosphere, with the vast majority of Human CO2 being rained out or absorbed by the green world.

  15. There are no days left to save all men, women and children from dying eventually.
    However if CO2 levels continue to rise, food should become easier to grow especially on marginal land, thus extend life for those subsisting there.
