Climate Change Barnes jets off to save planet

Empower Wisconsin | Dec. 5,  2019

MADISON — Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes is off to Madrid to talk  “equity and sustainability” in the Badger State at this week’s United Nations summit on climate change.

So how does the Wisconsin climate change warrior plan to travel to the global Go Green rally? Not on a carbon-free rowboat, that’s for sure.

Barnes, of course, makes the trip on a CO2-spewing jet plane, as do the other bloviating alarmists in the “unofficial” U.S. delegation attending.

The lieutenant governor will undoubtedly expand his carbon footprint all over Madrid as he’s chauffeured around Spain’s historic capital. It will be just like home for Barnes, who is chauffeured around Wisconsin by state security officials. Earlier this year, Barnes had trouble getting his registration renewed, with all of his outstanding parking tickets.

Meanwhile, Barnes and his boss, Gov. Tony Evers, are pushing a carbon-free agenda similar to the Green New Deal that would cost Wisconsin businesses, consumers, and taxpayers a fortune, while crippling the Badger State economy.

But Barnes sees good times ahead for businesses forced by the government to pay for the climate change alarmist agenda.

“I get excited about the fact that we have an opportunity to be a national, if not global leader in combating the impact of climate change,” he told the Wisconsin Radio Network. 

Some 29,000 people are expected to descend on Madrid for this week’s U.N. Climate Change Conference, known as COP25. Delegates include teenage Sweedish climate alarmist Greta Thunberg.

Unlike Barnes, Thunberg was traveling by boat to ease her disdain for carbon emissions and feed her exaggerated sense of her self.

Thunberg, according to reports, was on her way to Chile, original site of the summit, when violent protests forced the government to back out of its hosting duties.  She made it halfway to Chile via boat, train and electric car when the new venue was announced.

”It turns out I’ve travelled half around the world, the wrong way:)…If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful,” she tweeted from Los Angeles.
