Booker and Castro Try to Divide the Country with Term “Environmental Racism”

There’s something that Democrats do better than anyone else – spend money that they don’t have. There are now at least five presidential candidates who have elaborate climate control plans as part of their election platform that will cost trillions of dollars.

What a great job it must be to sit around and play with trillions of dollars as though they don’t have a care in the world.

Gillibrand was one of the first to come out with a climate control plan, with an estimated cost of about $10 trillion over the span of a decade. On Wednesday, Harris, and Buttigieg unveiled climate plans. This is in addition to plans that Warren and Castro laid out on Tuesday.

All of the Democrats seem to forget that the country is in debt. There is a considerable debt that needs to be reversed before anything can be spent on such things as climate control. However, the Dems don’t look at numbers. They’re not very good at budgets because they think that it’s okay to spend money without knowing where the funds are going to come from. Hopefully, they’re better at managing their personal finances or they’re in a severe deficit, too.

The Urgency of Climate Change

Many of the Democrats running for president see climate change as an urgency. However, when polled, most Democratic voters identify immigration, the economy, and healthcare as an urgency. Climate change isn’t a major concern for most, which begs the question as to why the Democratic candidates want to focus on it so heavily.

The problem with climate change is that it needs to be a global initiative. Those in China, Russia, India, and elsewhere in the world need to be on board for climate change as well. Otherwise, only a portion of what the United States does will have an impact – and it may not be worth trillions of dollars.

Harris is focusing on a “climate pollution fee” that will reduce pollution while providing revenue to the government. She is one of the few candidates who actually have a plan that would help to offset some of the costs. However, there are many candidates who want to spend trillions of dollars on research and investments, such as Warren, without a clear plan as to how income will be generated since the government cannot simply take an extra hit of $10 trillion on top of its current spending.

Buttigieg’s plan doesn’t have a real plan on where his $1.1 trillion will come from for his plan, either. He wants to get to net zero emissions by 2050 and he wants to create 3 million clean infrastructure jobs within the next decade. The problem is that he’s looking at a net-zero emissions plan that will take 30 years to be reached, which is an even an aggressive plan. Meanwhile, creating job sounds well and good, but the plan doesn’t have enough detail to help voters to feel as though it can actually happen.

Booker and Castro want to divide the country with the new term known as “environmental racism.” This is where they will focus on various communities where they feel people of color are affected by environmental hazards disproportionately. Booker has a $3 trillion plan in order to be carbon neutral. Meanwhile, Castro has a $10 trillion plan that would have clean and renewable electricity throughout the US by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2045.

With the Democrats all over the board in terms of how they would focus on climate control, it shows that none of them are on the same train of thought. They all agree that it is a building disaster and something has to be done about it. However, with voters more concerned in other areas, they aren’t focusing on the right areas. Further, they have to think about where the money is really going to come from because speaking in trillions of dollars is a terrifying thought, especially when looking at the deficit that the United States is already in.

Of course, Sanders likes to go with the biggest and boldest plans, with his fight for global warming costing an estimated $16 trillion. According to him, climate change is a national emergency. Plus, he wants to provide $200 billion to help some of the poorer nations with their climate change. This means that most of his plan isn’t even going to help America – is typical of the Democrats.

While climate change is important, it can’t be a priority – especially if it isn’t going to bring in an income at the same time as costing trillions of dollars. Someone needs to be financially responsible, and clearly it is in any of the presidential candidates.

  1. What do I think of these two? They are two of the most useless people in government. Just imagine yourself saying, “I don’t eat chicken”. Immediately these two would be on CNN, MSNBC, and other ultra-liberal news organizations saying your comment is racist because of the stereotype. T never wait to consider that you may not like the taste of chicken.

    There is one thing for certain. Our country doesn’t need either of these fools anywhere near the oval office.

  2. When will these boobs look at the facts and truth that plants and trees live off CO2 that they want to get rid. Is why the planet is a lot greener then most of the times before. Oh wait thats right they want the earth to look like other planets that have NO life on them.

  3. The Democrats have NOTHING to run on for the 2020 elections, so what they’re doing is throwing anything against the “political bathroom wall” to see what sticks. These people are LOSERS . . . Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  4. We need to leave the climate changing in God’s hands where it has been kept since creation. We need to use our money to focus on important issues like helping needy children, homeless people, mentally ill people, Veterans , infrastructure, enforcing immigration policies, our military, building the Wall at our southern border and common sense healthcare reform . Of course I could make a list a mile long for our nation but this list is a good start. I am not a racist or a bigot. I love my nation and I support our President totally.
    People that are in the Party of Twits aka the Democratic Party are not focused on real issues our citizens are facing daily. They are wrapped up in their cocoon of emotions that frankly never do anything constructive for our citizens , but rather tear them down by causing division and cultivating hate. I am part black, Indian and white, but my racial heritage has nothing to do with the fact that I am an American and a Christian first and foremost !!! I want what is best for every soul in America so I want these silly Democratic candidates like Mr. Booker and Mr. Castro to stop race baiting issues…they are not helping unite our nation. They should both keep their mouths closed for brain repairs….LOL…not being rude, just need some humor thrown in once and awhile…God Bless America !

  5. Democrats should listen to those enlightened people such as scientist who know a lot more about climate past and present then loud mouthed dizzy minded people.
