The United Nations tells Texas it must move to greenie energy to remain prosperous.

The United Nations, awash in greenie ideology, has decided that now would be a good time to horn in on the state of Texas's internal energy production. For its own good, of course:

NEW YORK — The leader of the United Nations says Texas must end its reliance on oil and gas production to remain prosperous in the era of climate change.

At a UN summit next month, world leaders will be asked to rapidly cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030. A vast increase in the production of renewable energy will be required to reach those targets.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres says Texas is well-positioned to lead the way in the production of renewables.

"If Texas wants to remain prosperous in 2050 or 2070, Texas will have to diversify its economy and Texas will have to be less dependent on oil and gas," Guterres said. "It has all the conditions to be — because of the weather in Texas — a leading state in renewable energy in the US," he added.

  • When blanket statements such as "All Government Employees Should Use Public Transportation", picture the Police arriving at a robbery/hostage situation/auto accident/traffic control in a taxi/bus or Uber. Where's a Fireman to put their Rescue Ladder? Undercover Narcotics Sting Operations. It took centuries to create this bureaucratic mess we live in. It will take time, consideration and planning to untangle it all.

  • On the whole, there will be found little disagreement in the facts that Our Governments have grown too large! They do indeed need dismantling. Logic dictates this would best be done by attrition of Government Jobs/Services into the Private Sectors. The competition of Capitalism would quickly create efficiency. Our State and Federal Governments have taken useful lands from its Citizens to create Parks and Reserves that less than 1% of our Citizens are capable of setting foot on in the best of their conditions, and for the benefits of who if not the Citizens? The Processes must begin, but First there must be a Plan, and to Achieve a Plan, Those Must Be Elected Willing and Capable of Creating and Following through with a Plan, because just talking about it doesn't get it done.

  • BTW.   I have long been oppoed to stealing a state's lands to set up federal parks that will never be parks as most people view them.   That is stealing one of their most valuable assets and then depriving them of the use of the land.    

    0blabla was a huge offender.

    Trump reduced the size of the theft.

    biden reinstated 0blabla's theft.

    • BTW Marlene...

      It is the STATE ITSELF that is the worst offender...  The States stood aside and allowed the federal governmetn to usurp many of their powers and permitted the lands and PROPERTY OF THE STATE to be taken by an out-of-control federal government.  It is past time for the several Red States ban together and EVICT all federal agents and their agencies from State Lands in unison... reclaiming all lands not properly seceded by the State legislature to the Federal GOvernment FOR CONSTITUTIONAL PURPOSES.  

      The States must take charge of their destiny by enforcing the terms of the UNION... as assigned by the US Constitution... they must reign in the Federal Government with a total recall of the government, subject to new elections and appointments.  This can be accomplished by using a Constitutional Amendment to recall the sitting government while establishing the terms for new elections and appointments 

      The same Article 5 Convention needs to ratify a Term Limits  Amendment... setting the term for all federal government offices (elected and appointed, judiciary included). All elected and senior appointed ministers and judges of the federal government need to be term-limited. One term, 6yrs in length, with 1/3rd of the government standing for election, and appointment every 2 yrs. Thus providing the institutional memory and stability needed for a sound federal government, while removing the power of incumbency and the influence of big money on elections.  Once one is elected or appointed, they are free to act on their conscience, not the need to raise money to run for reelection or to satisfy their party in pursuit of reappointment.   

    • No disagreement here.

      Our Federal  government is way overgrown and could likely be cut in half.

      Additionally, Congress should be returned to what Our Forefathers intended.   No career politicians.   Have congress be basically a VOLUNTARY PART TIME VENTURE.   Say sessions on an 'as needed' basis.   A few weeks at a time and  a monetary compensation on the level of  jury duty compensation.   THAT WOULD TAKE A BIG BITE OUT OF THE CORRUPTION.

  • If I am in error, the please accept my apologies. Today's results are displaying the more expedient approach.

  • My God Colonel, behold another Knute Rokne! I get this crawly sensation from time to time that you will only find satisfaction leading this parade, armed, down Pennsylvania Avenue in a Formation Attack against the White House, Congress and our Supreme Court.

    • Lynn...

      I suggest you actually read what I post before you state I am for armed revolution or violent revolt of any kind... I have wholely refuted the use of violent protests and armed insurrection as both are exercises in suicide,

  • It is all one big hypocrisy. Iceland is being promoted as an "Attraction to visit before Global Warming Removes its Wonders!" Its Leader was interviewed praising the amount of Tourism Capital coming in, while Condemning the Jets that bring them! "One Mile of Jet Airliner Travel is equivalent to One Year of an American Automobile Travel in Carbon Footprint!" The simple resolution to the conundrum would be, "Remove all the Airports and force the Tourists to use Fuel Efficient Ships!" Take note of how many times Biden has flown Airforce One back and forth across the Atlantic these past Thirty Days, not Including Supportive Fighter Jets!

    • Not a bad idea at all... maybe you can send it to AOC... cutting air traffic in half would be a boon to the shipping industry, and significantly reduce the need for fossil fuel consumption.
