Kansas City Congressman Cleaver Talks Climate Change: 'It's Not Too Late To Save The Planet From Global Catastrophe!"



Here's this town's top ranking elected official and the fight for the future that also happens to be a top election 2020 issue. Take a look:

Rep. Cleaver Holds Subcommittee Hearing to Shed Light on Economic Costs and National Security Risks of Climate Change



September 11, 2019

(Washington, D.C.) – As chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy, United States Representative Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO) today held a subcommittee hearing entitled “Examining the Macroeconomic Impact of a Changing Climate.” The hearing was called to examine how Climate Change is already impacting America’s economy and national security, as well as the extraordinary costs that are expected to arise as the planet’s climate continues to warm.

“As we’ve seen over the last decade, increasingly powerful hurricanes, sea level rise, wildfires, drought, and other symptoms of a changing climate are draining critical economic resources and creating new risks for our security apparatus,” said Congressman Cleaver. “The facts could not be more clear. The Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, human beings are responsible for that change, and we’re going to have to evolve with these truths. We can either be proactive and address climate change by innovating and incentivizing clean energy technology that would create millions of jobs, or we can be reactive and continue to pay billions of dollars in disaster relief year after year. I think the choice is clear.”

According to the U.S. Global Change Research Program, global climate change is occurring more rapidly than at any point in history, primarily because of human activities accentuating the release of heat-trapping greenhouse gases. The varied impacts of climate change are evident in every region of the United States and have had an adverse effect on the macroeconomy. If uninterrupted, these impacts will continue mount as time continues. Labor force displacement, rising sea level, decreased crop yields, and infrastructure damage are but a few examples of the substantial expected consequences of climate change. These costs are not unique to the United States, as countries around the world are expected to face similar consequences, which is likely to have a major impact on the global economy, U.S. national security, and international stability.

Projections have shown the United States could lose up to 10.5% of its gross domestic product (GDP) by 2100 due to climate change. According to the fourth National Climate Assessment, “annual losses in some economic sectors are projected to reach hundreds of billions of dollars by the end of the century,” provided emissions continue to grow at historic rates. Scholars at the University of California Berkeley noted that “by 2050, between $66 billion and $106 billion worth of existing coastal property nationwide will likely be below sea level” and that “some states in the Southeast, lower Great Plains, and Midwest risk up to a 50% to 70% loss in average annual crop yields.”

“We cannot continue to allow the issue of climate change to be entirely politicized. The consequences for future generations are too dire,” said Congressman Cleaver. “If we are going to stem the economic and humanitarian calamity that will come with a rapidly warming climate, we have got to start implementing bold policies that will decarbonize industry on a global scale. It’s not too late to save the planet from global catastrophe, but we must accept the science and we must do so now.”

May not agree with much here but the fact that 2020 really is about saving the planet. The course of that election my decide our fate more than anyone thinks. Hope we choose right.

Maybe the environment will be better if we reduce some of the hot air coming from D.C.?

He should re-read the only reliable predictor of the future - the Bible. It clearly states the earth and climate will degrade into a full worldwide disaster with 1/3 of all mankind eventually dying. These politicians claim to be religious, but do not even believe their own Bible. I guess they think a few changes here and there will rewrite history and then the Bible will be wrong cause they saved the earth? Really??

Cleaver knows as much about climate science as he does about running a car wash.

Remember the earth was mostly covered by water at one time and the climate has changed slowly every since then. These knuckleheads in Washington like Cleaver think they can do something to change all of that. Meanwhile have they themselves done anything to change things? Nope those fools each waste more resources than a thousand or so of their voters ever do. See they want us to change while they never change.
Climate change is a snake oil show to try and get your mind of the really important issues they are ignoring.

Here Cleaver suck on this, an issue you should have really been dealing with.

In a major win for the Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country, such as Mexico, without seeking protection there.
The DOJ also said the ruling would "bring order to the crisis at the southern border, close loopholes in our immigration system, and discourage frivolous claims."
In a joint statement, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., and Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship Chair Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., said they were "gravely disappointed."

Too bad democrappers you lost again ya retards for failing to do what you said you would do for years and didn't. Whole fucking lot of them including Cleaver are a bunch of losers.

CONGRESSMAN CARWASH BLOWS HOT AIR!

If you gave Carwash an IQ test, how do you think he'd do?
Hint: Definitely below 100, likely below 90.

Historically, IQ is a score obtained by dividing a person's mental age score, obtained by administering an intelligence test, by the person's chronological age, both expressed in terms of years and months. The resulting fraction is multiplied by 100 to obtain the IQ score.

When current IQ tests were developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less, although this was not always so historically. By this definition, approximately two-thirds of the population scores are between IQ 85 and IQ 115. About 2.5 percent of the population scores above 130, and 2.5 percent below 70.

We've known about Climate Change before Cleaver worked at the Bannister Federal Complex. So for Cleaver to admit we are at the 11th Hour with Climate Disaster is pretty sketchy.

New york city was covered by a 2 mile high glacier once. Climate change was good for ny. You cant stop climate change as the magnetic poles are switching positions. How do you stop that?

If the shooting of fish in barrels offends you, look away. The publication this week of a Nature paper on global warming on Mars offers a fantastic opportunity to kill off one of the silliest climate-sceptic arguments, and I'm more than happy to be pointing the gun at the water.

The sceptical 'argument' — using the word loosely — in question is that global warming on Earth should be seen as a natural, as opposed to anthropogenic, phenomenon because other planets and moons in the Solar System are getting warmer, too (which, indeed, they are). Since what the planets have in common is the Sun, they say, it must thus be the Sun that is driving the warming.

Cleve must have stock in some kind of environmental hypothetical therory company, just waiting to cash in. Follow the money.

This is the same mush for brains that said "We don't want to make the black kids angry". Cleaver knows as much about climate change as he does about National Security by handing over his Lap Top computers to the Anwan's and Democrats letting them walk scott free! Yeah we want some more of that. Pff...

But you do realize that some quantity of climate variation is not man made, right? I mean all it would take is a glance at the data from ice core samples to show very clearly that rapid temperature fluctuations happened without internal combustion or cow farts.

I mean, holy cow, I don't want to get in the way of your mighty fish in the barrel shooting or anything. Lol:)

^^I mean, you're pretty much a worthless geezer, so no one really ever listens to anything you say, let alone any thing science related. Produce your science degree or go back to watching Matlock. It's really all you know Maude :(

I stopped reading when he said "The Earth’s climate is changing rapidly, human beings are responsible for that change,"

there are many reasons for climate change but that unilateral statement shows just how ignorant he is.
