Leave it to Evers: Tony’s climate change club

Empower Wisconsin | Oct. 21, 2019

Hey, kids. Who’s up for joining Tony’s Climate Change Alarmist Club? 

Well, you don’t have a choice. Gov. Tony Evers says Wisconsin is in the club. 

The Democrat last week signed an executive order creating the Governor’s Task Force on Climate Change. 

What will the task force do? It will do what all such climate change alarmist panels do: spread fear and make doomsday predictions. Oh, and it will recommend insane amounts of regulation that will drive Badger State business and workers into the poorhouse long before the polar bears bite the ice. 

Maybe the club could bring in teenage climate activist Greta Thunburg to a Buffalo Wild Wings during Badger Saturday for a Carbon Footprint shaming. “How dare you eat your chicken wings slathered in teriyaki sauce and drink your sodas with straws while my generation suffers!” 

The task force will collaborate with another one of Evers’ BS creations, the Office of Sustainability and Clean Energy. That government bureaucracy demands all energy production in Wisconsin be “100 percent carbon-free” by 2050. 

Evers’ Green New Deal, like the one pitched by vapid Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is practically impossible. A Heritage Foundation analysis found that taking the U.S. to just over half carbon reduction would, by 2040, cost the economy $15 trillion in lost gross domestic product and an average of 1.1 million jobs per year. It would also cause significant energy deficiency problems. Perhaps the jobless in Tony’s and AOC’s Green Dream could get a government discount on their solar panels. Of course, many will be homeless, but we hear California has a great plan for the displaced. 

Evers and his band of political scientists like to accuse former Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, of disregarding the climate change “emergency.” 

A new report, however, from Evers’ own Department of Natural Resources, shows the state’s air quality has significantly improved since 2002. Overall fine particle concentrations have dropped 35 percent statewide over the period, according the DNR’s 2019 Air Quality Trends Report. Emissions from ozone-forming pollutants have dropped 50 percent and sulfur dioxide emissions have declined 68 percent, the report found. 

Those air quality improvements came without radicalized, economy-killing policies. 

Evers lieutenant, Mandela Barnes has been tapped to lead Tony’s Climate Change Alarmist club. Maybe the lieutenant governor can lead by example, cutting carbon by riding a bike to the club meetings instead of having his taxpayer-funded chauffeur drive him around the state — and beyond.
