Video: Environmentalist Rips Green New Deal

Former Greenpeace executive Patrick Moore takes on the ecofascists’ plan.

Well, because it would be basically the end of civilization if 85% of the world’s and also 85% of the U.S.‘s energy in the form of coal, oil, natural gas were phased out over the next few years, like ten years. We do not have anything to replace them with. Yes, if we went into a crash course of building nuclear reactors, we could replace them for producing electricity. But that isn’t going to happen because the Greens are against nuclear and they are even against hydroelectric dams which at least is renewable. But they don’t support that either. So basically they are opposed to approximately 98.5% of all the electricity that we are using and nearly 100% of all of the vehicle and transportation and ships and planes energy that we are using.

So when I tweeted the other day, and it had a huge response, over three million impressions on Twitter, I said, you don’t have a plan to feed eight billion people without fossil fuels or get the food into the cities, where it’s needed. That requires large trucks, and there’s not going to be any electric trucks any time soon hauling forty tons of food into the supermarkets where the people in the cities probably think it originates, in the supermarket. But it does not.

It’s coming from farms out in the country, where a few million people are growing the food for all the rest of the population. And if we ban fossil fuels, first, agricultural production would collapse in a very short period of time.

There’s these things called tractors and they use fuel, and all the other implements on the farm, and then there’s the transportation.

So when you have no fuel, how do you get the food to the center of New York, to Manhattan, where AOC is from? You don’t. Then the people there will begin to starve and that will spread out as a rot from the center of the metropolises all across the country, and half the population will die in a very short period of time.

And as I also pointed out, there wouldn’t be a tree left on this planet. Say this was a worldwide thing, because the United States is not going to ban fossil fuels if no one else does; but say the Paris Agreement came into effect, fully all around the world and everybody banned fossil fuels, there wouldn’t be a tree left on this planet because that would be all there was for fuel, for heating and cooking, as they did in the old days, when there was hardly anybody on the planet compared to what there is today.

So just that one point, never mind the insanity of banning aircraft and fossil fuel-using vehicles.
