The socialist pollution collusion.

February 25, 2019

There’s a lot of buzz going on over AOC’s Green New Deal (GND), as well as Dianne Feinstein’s conversation with little kids over it.

Perhaps instead of arguing with 10 and 12 year olds, Senator Feinstein could have presented them and their elders with some of the following information instead.

Just how much good would the GND do to fix air pollution worldwide? According to some scientists, if we adopted everything in the GND, it would clean up the environment by 1/10 of 1%.

Maybe we should hold off until the rest of the world can match our environmental quality first.

Just what U.S cities rank highest in pollution? Where does the U.S. rank in terms of pollution creation?

Well, out of 500 cities ranked by WHO in 2018 by particulate matter pollution, there isn’t one U.S. city on the list. As for countries, the U.S. isn’t in the top 11, also according to WHO.  In fact it doesn’t even make the top 75, ranking 86th out of 106 according to Numbeo.com

That gives a lot of credence to the argument that the GND is mostly about government control of industries and the population, and far less about cleaning up the environment.

Those kids weren’t trying to be disrespectful.  They have been propagandized to believe that the big bad United States and the fossil fuel producers are literally trying to kill them. That would scare any kid.

The problem is, it just isn’t true.  Let’s tell our kids that, instead.
