By Any Means?

Zero CO2 By Any Means?
Zero CO2 By Any Means?

Biden and Co. are once again proving that they’ll enforce the Warmists’ ideology by and means necessary. They might as well start chanting, “From sea to shining sea, America will be carbon free!”

On Friday, November 17th, 2023 Biden and his Department of Energy (DOE) jointly announced that the federal government would use the he 1950 Defense Production Act (DPA) to funnel $169 million tax dollars into 9 projects across 15 sites nationwide in an effort to accelerate electric heat pump manufacturing.

Yeah, nothing says we’re the ones protecting democracy from the evil “MAGA extremists” quite like using a cold-war era national defense law to advance a Democrat policy agenda and specifically privilege certain manufacturers over the competition. 🙄

Now, don’t get me wrong; this isn’t, in and of itself, catastrophic, and I’ve little to no problems with the federal government funding research into just about any technology. That, to my mind, is the the proper and often necessary place of the government in the arena of science, technology, and engineering. No, my primary issue with this bit of eco-tyranny is the use of the DPA to do it. Operating under the very hard to politically combat penumbra of national security in order to artificially alter the market is dangerously wrong.

Climate Change Explained

Climate Change Explained

This is actually one of the best and best worded definitions for Climate Change as a cause and/or movement that I’ve come across. It so aptly describes AGW as it’s been presented and all the “countermeasures” that have been implemented and/or proposed.

Have A Green Christmas

Have A Green Christmas

Yeah. Have a very green Christmas indeed. At remember, all you good folk, the Eco-Fascists of the Climate Change crap would be A-OK with this, just as their always A-OK with all the real deaths caused by their non-fossil fuel energy ideas. And, of course they are. They would never accept any solution to their proclaimed problem that didn’t harm the wealth, basic lifestyles, and health of Whites, especially White Americans.

This has never really been about lowering global temperatures. It’s always been about reducing the economies and populations of White nations for the sake of “Diversity” and “Social Justice.”

And here we see several – at least – tons of EV fuel beginning its long, overland trek to a power plant somewhere. But, of course, out of sight is out of what passes for the minds of liberal climatards.

Beyond Fake Meat

Beyond Fake Meat
Beyond Fake Meat

It’s looking like the days of fake meat may well be coming to an end. The Liberal/Progressive Eco-Fascists’, Climatards’, and Food Nazi’s dream of normalizing – and, of course, later mandating – plant-based “meat” products seems to be failing hard, wrecked upon the rocks of basic economics.

Beyond Meat is cutting its workforce by a 19% – approximately 200 employees – in a desperate move to slash eight figures’ worth of spending from its operation in order to survive it’s revenue collapse, which is now projected to be down by as much as $120 million (9-14%) from a year ago.

This failure is about as surprising as politician either lying or finding a way to “tax” more of your money. It’s simple economics. Fake meat is just too expensive; the only ones buying are the privileged coastal elites. And, even for them, it’s more about virtue signalling and supporting a Left-wing cause than wanting to eat the stuff. Certainly all attempts to mainstream fake meat have failed, with only 54% of people even trying vegetable-based meat alternative offerings at more blue-collar restaurants.

It’s really quite simple. It’s basic, almost remedial, economics. Any product that only appeals to a small number of potential customers and is necessarily priced above the pain point for the majority of people is doomed to either failure or being restricted to a small, niche offering.

And, given that the same Liberal and Progressive coastal elites that made a market for fake meat did so as a moralistic attack on normal people and as a way of entrenching their Warmist ideology, very few will miss this industry at all.
