We have to have a market for natural resources like air, water. We have to pay for them. But the only idea you came up with was a new tax... Economy isn't what socialist are good at.

The problem with carbon tax or gasoline taxes is that they hurt poor and working class people the most. I would love to drive a hybrid or a fully electric car. But they’re fucking expensive. I drive what I can afford. There’s problems in my state with increased regulations on car inspections. They’re well-meaning, but ultimately most people can’t afford to make the proper repairs (most of which are not structural problems, but emissions related issues). In my family, we make fairly good money. And everything is still too expensive. I don’t know how anyone makes it anymore to tell you the truth

Pie!!!! and the thing with the rebate and carbon tax.... you forget that here in nj if we had that tax there 100% would be no rebate... home state of trump's business's and he never tackled the treatment we face here and/or corruption ... tump should know he's from here. -cant let my kids play in the yard without being 2 feet from them so they dont get snatched up. -cant take your kid to the park without the police sitting in the entrance of my neighborhood running my plates and trying to find reasons to give me fines -call the police because people are shooting guns and expect the police to show up in around no less then 20minutes(i can ride a bike to the station in 12minutes) -got a crazy ex ? expect dyfus to be beating down your door 3-4 times a week for years with every allegation under the sun you'll have to clear... -got a drug addict baby mama? she got your kid? expect her to be taking your child support money and shooting it in her arm with no accountability for the child support (even if the father never missed a dollar and actually paid) . -we pay one of the highest tax's and have THE polehole king state title for some reason... -nj refused to legalize marijuana for the disabled because we the people refused a 1 billion dollar loan the people would have to pay just to legalize it...the 1 billion was for their bmw payments and nice houses? idk

The green deal would cost the u.s. around 90 trillion, yet it would only address the 15% of the worlds pollution that we here produce. Places like India, china, etc will continue their paths. Let's get real. 90 trillion out of our pockets to buy the planet an extra 8 years.

The Life Aquatic with Rob Bull
Honestly guys, don't want to go all doom and gloom on you all, but the world is f#*cked. People don't see climate change as an imminent threat because it's an absolutely terrifying thought and they quite simply don't want to believe it's true. We don't want to believe horrible things are about to happen and by doing so we fail to act, thus ensuring they do. The solutions are simple, but they require working together, for the common good, something that is actively discouraged by neo-capitalism. Geothermal, hydro, tidal, solar, and wind are all alternatives we could use today to generate power. I don't see the global population developing the political backbone to affect change. I so hope I'm wrong on this one, but from what I have seen, I don't think that I am.
FlyingSoloSV Před 6 dny
I agree with your points. People cannot keep denying it, and solutions need to be the priority not "we'll get to it." With everyday passing day we are losing opportunity to turn this around. Another point that definitely needs to be mentioned is a plant-based diet. There is no way animal agriculture is sustainable and it is a big factor in environmental degradation. These people focused on their hamburgers need to wake up to this fact, and make a change today. We don't need to wait for legislation to personally make this change and enact what we preach.

"Green New Deal", are you employed, do you see a bright future, do you want a life free to pursue your dreams? Then why in the world would you even consider AOC's GND? If you read it, you'd see it has absolutely nothing to do with the environment and everything to do with planting the seeds of Communism, even the author admitted what its true intentions are.

When you say UK emissions have fallen below 1890 level does it include the emissions of goods produced outside the country but used by people living in the UK? As nothing is produced anymore in the UK but in Asia and South America it kinda make sense that there would be less pollution... (including the fact that have already burned all their coal available)

Carbon tax could work if that money was used to develop renewable infrastructure research etc. Trudeau is literally taxing canadians and giving the money back to people, disproportionate to how its collected. This will have NO affect on carbon use. ALSO Trudeau rep said this is how govt controls people's behavior and GUESS WHAT!!!, that is NOT the govts job!!!!!!!!!!!! Carbon tax is stupid and useless when you do dumb stuff like putting the money in general revenue and not innovating towards a renewable resource based future. So John just like media you left out an important game changing aspect of fact to make your point. Still love your show. Kick your research team in the balls they're careless.

We've got some real problems with the environment, but the problem with the green new deal is that you can't really just start a 'conversation' that drastic without any plans or ideas as to how you're going to achieve those goals. Stricter environmental laws mean stricter measures and possible sanctions and tariffs that will impact commerce. The green new deal will mean economic shambles as a whole. There is a need to address the environment, but you can't just take away thousands of jobs if not more without a viable pathway towards your goal.
Kshitij Bisht
Kshitij Bisht Před 16 dny
@Pat Doyle First of all, thanks for not calling me a cunt, a refreshing change. Secondly, did not know about the job creation under the Obama administration, will have to check up on that. Will try and read up as much as I can about what you said and let's see where that leads me.
Pat Doyle
Pat Doyle Před 16 dny
That makes no sense. When you have a crisis, and have not figured out how to solve it, that is EXACTLY when you need a conversation about it! That's where people can PRESENT the various ideas and plans that could help solve it and an overall strategy can be developed. You don't just ignore it until someone plops down a ready made solution. And since, as you pointed out, the Green New Deal is NOT a plan, but rather a definition of the problem, and a list of goals any statement you make about its economic effects is nonsense. That fact is that nearly every major environmental effort in our history has been good for the economy. Even now, more people are working in good green energy production jobs than coal and oil combined. In the 1970s I heard people say the same damned thing about plans to cut pollution and improve energy efficiency - it would cost millions of jobs, billions of dollars, and cripple the economy. Instead our efforts spawned entire new industries, created millions of new jobs and helped the economy!
Pat Doyle
Pat Doyle Před 16 dny
Why can't you do that? That seems like a foolish assertion. First of all there are LOTS of ideas out there to deal with this, but what you seem to be saying is that when there is a crisis, you have to ignore it until you have a plan, rather than talk to people to come up with a plan! And so far, there is no reason to think that addressing this would do anything but CREATE jobs - usually better ones! Did you know that the massive growth of green energy under Obama produced millions of good new jobs, and that now there are more people working in green energy production than coal and oil combined? I heard the same thing in the 1970s about how environmental action would cost millions of jobs - instead, it spawned whole new industries.
Themachine Před 18 dny
Trump just like his base are morons. They are the result of moronism. The offsprings of idiocracy and science illiteracy. Nothing that they say will fix anything. They are blockades, that sprout from accumulation of heavy negative tendencies (hatred, authoritarianism, supremacy). They long for fascism, dictatorship and rule of power. Under hordes of morons inspired by few snake-oil lying brutes. Truth will come out and lies will be proved to be what they are, lies.

If you want to do something yourself to combat climate change right now, reduce the amount of animal foods you eat and try to have more plant based meals. Factory farming is an environmental disaster that contributes more greenhouse gases than the entire transportation sector. You might even improve your health at the same time because the Standard American Diet is just as toxic to your body as animal agriculture is to the planet.

The alternative to plastic is hemp products for it makes over 26,000 different things that means clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast available 24 seven. + It has even been proven to be 10 times stronger than steel, 30% lighter and stronger, lighter than concrete stronger and lighter than brick far more versatile making the design possibilities practically limitless at the same time being easier to work with on-site, equally as amazing 1 acre of hemp can produce enough bio fossil fuel to fuel 10,000 vehicles for a year at about a dollar per gallon. One of the major differences is hemp bio fossil fuel only releases the same amount of carbon dioxide unoxygenated air per mile as a person does when the exhale versus coal, oil, and gas. Which release tens of millions of years worth of petrified death per mile. The real sales pitch is 1 acre of hemp produces 3 to 4 times the amount of oxygen as a acre of trees + it sucks in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide unoxygenated air as a acre of trees plus it rejuvenates and replenishes the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality after every harvest even if the landscape has been previously stripped, robbed, and depleted from overharvesting things such as cotton and corn that has been marinating in petroleum-based fertilizer. Not to mention it has the same nutritional value as rice, corn, wheat, barley, and milk. So we can easily deal with people being over fed and undernourished. In layman's terms we can rebuild faster much more efficiently at a fraction of the cost in half the time of what we are doing today without leaving any excess poisonis, toxic waste behind. In layman's terms we can manufacture, mass-produce, and distribute products that every country, city, and continent is going to be happy to spend top dollar. For example hemp clothing! For it distributes moisture across the body more efficiently than any other material leaving a person feeling, smelling, and smiling their best even under the most extreme circumstances plus it promotes good respiratory function so if a person has asthma, allergies, or other breathing complications just by wearing its clothing you will alleviate those symptoms with the potential of diminishing them all together. Hemp has even been successfully grown on radiative soil! So in theory if we grow hemp along the shores of our rivers and lakes we will greatly improve upon the quality of that water. Nonetheless we definitely will improve upon and maintain the quality of our air, water, foods, landscapes, working/living environment, and every day home products by producing 3 to 4 times more oxygen per acre than we do currently. At the same time sucking in 3 to 4 times the amount of carbon dioxide unoxygenated air per acre as we do currently as a added bonus, everywhere we grow it we will be rejuvenating and replenishing the soil back to Garden of paradise type quality. Keep in mind America has about 800,000 acres of available farming land. So again we have the manpower, technology, resources, and capability to create clean high-paying jobs from coast-to-coast that will improve upon and maintain the quality of life in such a way. That will naturally allow each person's generation to become stronger, smarter, healthier, happier better off physically, mentally, financially possibly, and spiritually then the previous generation. With that type of leadership, loyalty, and devotion to one's self and country People may start finally having jobs, products, and power sources that will allow them to be healthy and wealthy enough to live enjoy their life all the way through out retirement. You can't do that would dirty low-paying jobs. That come from outdated power sources, inferior materials, poisonous, toxic substances, pesticides, and chemicals that never change their killing composition which means whether it's solid, liquid, or burnt off to our airways and atmosphere as a vapor. It is always going to be poisonous, debilitating, and deadly to the body at the same time polluting, corrupting, and devastating to mother Earth and all the various different forms of life that live within this world. The bottom line you cannot promote life by doing business with material, resources, and substances that have been scientifically classified and religiously verified as petrified death or worse. Think about this if life is not free why the hell would death be any cheaper. I guarantee it's not so would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on the end results of dirty low-paying jobs. Would you like to know how souls and spirits have paid out are picking up the tab on a diminished quality of life. Case closed mercy, forgiveness, and spiritual welfare are not changing these facts. You're either part of the world solutions or you are exacerbating the world's problems either way each and every one of us is being held spiritually accountable for each and every moment. Laugh smile grin chuckle, with confidence I say now I wish and pray for my soul and spirit to be held spiritually accountable to the statements I proclaim. I guarantee you never see hear another body, man in power, persons of legal, religious authority leaders ever freely validate the statements they proclaim with that level of certainty. One reason could be the don't have the best interest of the majority of the population's needs at heart another reason could be the come from a breed of cowards! One is genetic hereditary the other is simply a generic learned behavior either way it is physically, mentally, and spiritually useless to freely live and die in such a low quality manner especially if that stupidity, ignorance, and desperation stems from being soft, lazy, out of shape, over fed, undernourished, overworked, and underpaid with dirty low-paying jobs.
