Wow, great idea...

 Why do cities run by liberals all end up as homeless magnets? Portland, Oregon is demonstrating why. Their latest proposal is to “welcome” the “unhoused” (their term) — everywhere. According to abc affiliate katuNews, Portland’s Planning and Sustainability Commission is considering “mandatory rest spaces” for the homeless. As Hot Air explains, this would “change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property…) include spaces for people to ‘rest’ and ‘feel welcome and safe.’” katu reports that “some worry a change … to allow people to ‘rest’ on private property could lead to camping.” Really? Do you think?

Hot Air makes the commonsense point: “If you’re making the investment to construct a new home or business in Portland, you really don’t want to open up on day one with an invitation for a homeless encampment … literally right on your doorstep.” My advice: if you’re constructing a new home or business in Portland, sell.

Pass the gas


Passing Gas

Even more evidence that “green energy” is bad for the planet. According to the bbc, the move from coal-fired power stations to “mixed sources of power including wind, solar, and gas” has major environmental downsides. It has led to a rise in the number of electrical switches and circuit breakers “needed to prevent serious accidents.” Turns out the switchgear necessary to avoid electrical overloads and fires in power stations due to the increased use of green energy requires huge amounts of a synthetic greenhouse gas: sulfur hexafluoride, or sf6.

Greenies should be turning red, because sf6 just happens to have the highest global warming potential of any known substance — 23,500 times greater than co2. Oops. A study from the University of Cardiff found that the impact of sf6 used in Europe in 2017 alone equaled the emissions from 1.3 million extra cars on the road. And the gas remains in the atmosphere for at least 1,000 years. Blame gasbags like Algore flying around the world in private jets, raking in the greenbacks.

Unbelievable

 The Washington Post’s new motto — “Democracy Dies in Darkness” — isn’t a slogan; it’s a plan, and they are executing it. They’re keeping everybody in the dark for the express purposes of killing democracy.

Wow, what brilliance

 Glassy-eyed climate changers continue to invent lunatic “fixes” for the global warming hoax. According to The [uk] Daily Mail, a company called Ice911 has begun spending $5 billion on a pilot program to spread tiny silica beads over the surface of glaciers in Alaska. Why? To replace “lost reflectivity” resulting from supposedly disappearing ice.

Reparations?

And last… “There’s another possible reparations issue completely ignored: Blacks as well as whites live on land taken, sometimes brutally, from American Indians. Do blacks and whites owe American Indians anything?” —Walter E. Williams

“White House Asked McGahn to Declare Trump Never Obstructed Justice.” — The New York Times, 5/10/19

Buried: “Reading the report, the President’s lawyers saw that Mr. Mueller left out that Mr. McGahn had told investigators that he believed the President never obstructed justice.”

Do electric cars cause ...

The Tesla was once championed as a zero-emission vehicle, the green dream car of the future. But now investors are looking green around the gills. The Ifo Institute for Economic Research, a German think tank, revealed that when battery production is included, co2 emissions from Tesla and other electric cars exceed those of diesel-powered cars. Driving a Tesla Model 3, for example, produces 156 to 181 grams of co2 per kilometer, versus 141 grams per kilometer for a Mercedes C-Class. You have to lay down some serious green to buy a Tesla ($76,000+) — yet the U.S. continues to green light tax breaks of up to $7,500 per vehicle to Tesla and other electric car makers, according to The Daily Caller.

Let’s face it, you have to be more than a little green to have believed this green fairy tale in the first place. Smug leftist elitists championed the Tesla because Elon Musk was heralded as the savior of the green tech industry, and they wanted to make others green with envy while they pretended to care about the planet. A Wall Street Journal editorial compared the study’s findings to the “false promises about corn and cellulosic ethanol.” So why on God’s green earth are we still subsidizing all this horse excrement?

Spud dud

The chips are down in the uk, literally. According to “Recipe for Disaster” from London’s left-wing Climate Coalition, 2018’s hot and dry weather “cut more than one inch off the size of the average chip.” (For those of you in Rio Linda, fries are known as “chips” in the uk; potato chips are called “crisps.”) The report’s author, who clearly has a chip on his shoulder, warns that “British-grown potatoes, vegetables, and fruit are at risk” as “growers struggle to cope with extreme and unpredictable weather.” Because farmers have never before in history had to cope with heat or drought, apparently.

The Climate Coalition’s bargaining chip? Guilt. They want every Brit subject to chip in to chip away at global warming by cutting their carbon emissions. Otherwise, Great Britain might as well cash in their chips and admit that uk spuds are duds and their taters are tots. I say, let the chips fall where they may.

Education gone wild

A high school in Shepherdsville, KY tried to fill the knowledge gap for the selfie generation. As reported by Wave 3 News, Bullitt Central High School seniors had an Adulting Day, to learn practical skills for real life. The school’s Family Resource & Youth Services Center organized the event, which brought in people from the community. Real-world adults taught the senior class how to change a tire, manage a credit card, cook in a dorm room, and handle finances. Police explained how to behave during traffic stops. And because these kids are, well, snowflakes, there was a speaker on how to deal with homesickness at college.

What’s sad about this, folks, is that before liberals took over education, practical-life instruction was normal fare in every school across the fruited plain. Now schools are more invested in indoctrinating kids on the politically correct pronouns for all 63 genders.
