Cool Hennepin County!
By Andrew Richter
We’ve posted before on Hennepin County being a “cool county.” But what does that mean exactly? Well, if you are a regular reader of this blog (and I know you are) it will sound familiar to you…
Hennepin County is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by the year 2050 as part of the Cool County Initiative.
Interesting…..same goal as in Agenda 21 and ICLEI…..but of course it’s not a conspiracy. I have an idea for you idiots; how about you reduce government spending by 80% by 2050? Or maybe 1%??
The initiative will rely on reduced and cleaner energy consumption through energy efficiency and the generation of renewable energy. The effort will include green building design, more efficient vehicle fleet management and transportation practices and other targeted greenhouse gas emission reduction programs.
Where have I heard that before?? Oh right the Green Step Program! This was basically copied from them who probably in turn copied it from somewhere else. Green Building design? That of course came from the World Green Building Council with LEED standards.
Hennepin County is a founding member of a coalition of counties across the United States that are taking action to eliminate the causes of global climate change.
I thought it was global warming? Of course their “actions” aren’t about the environment; it’s about using the environment to grow the size of government.
Of course Hennepin County is there with all the propaganda to make sure we conform to the globalists;
Like windows in a greenhouse, carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere traps the sun’s heat and insulates the planet. Minnesota’s carbon dioxide emissions have increased 37 percent over the past 20 years, according to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
And of course they have no agenda…..
Increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are warming the planet. Carbon dioxide comes primarily from the burning of fossil fuels, such as exhaust from vehicles and coal burned to generate electricity. Changes in the climate pose significant environmental and economic threats to communities in Minnesota and throughout the world.
Aren’t you scared now?
Minnesota has warmed an average of one degree Fahrenheit during the past century. Parts of northern Minnesota have warmed five degrees Fahrenheit or more during the winter months. As the warming continues, northern cities like Hibbing may develop climates more similar to the current climate of Albert Lea or Des Moines, Iowa.
Oh My God!!! We’ve warmed one degree!!!!! I sure felt that this winter! Hibbing will have the same temperature as Albert Lea? Maybe people in Hibbing would like that. So it will be -10 in Hibbing instead of -15….big deal!
Precipitation has increased by 20 percent since 1990 in parts of Minnesota, especially southern Minnesota.
So precipitation has gone up and that’s bad….should we have a drought instead? Oh no wait, that’s would mean global warming too!
I don’t even want to go on…..you get the picture; scare people on the environment equals more government!
