Jill Stein Launches Climate Voter Power Pledge At D.C. Climate Protests

The following is an email from 2012 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein:

Dear paulie,They were the largest climate protests in U.S. history, with over 50,000 marching in Washington D.C. and tens of thousands more taking part in protests across the country. Yesterday, Jill Stein joined a large Green Party contingent from across the country, sending a clear message at the protests that ending climate change requires political change and systems change.

To drive that message home, Jill Stein has launched the Climate Voter Power Pledge, a pledge to not to vote for any candidate who supports a climate-killing “All of the Above” approach to energy production. Got that, White House?

Please sign the Climate Voter Power Pledge and tell everyone you know about it. Marching and rallying is one way to show power. But the power of the vote, and of denying the vote, is another way we can redirect our politics and our economy away from the climate cliff.

    And here we have the Green Party, yet again, fronting for the Plantation Masters of the nation ( their financiers ) in their plan to use the total lie/fraud of Global Warming/Climate Change to attack and shutdown industry so as to impoverish the nation and break/shatter the working classes; all under the preposterous idea of ” saving the earth ” by limiting ” greenhouse gases.”

    Well morons, the fact is that the biggest ” greenhouse gas ” ( 95%++ ) is WATER VAPOR!! CO2 is .38 of 1% of gases!! So when will you have your demonstrations to ” ban water ” so that the earth can be saved?

    The Constitution Party of California has a standing $10,000 reward to anyone who can disprove the science in the book ” Climategate ” by Brian Sussman; a book which totally exposes the lie of global warming. We could make it a $1,000,000 award and it would still be uncollectible by the ” Sky is Falling ” Green Party anti-worker nitwits because – A) they are terrified of any actual debate as they know that such an event would expose them as the liars and nitwits which they are, and B) they can’t disprove REAL science such as is found in Sussmans book.

    But we can always rely on the Green Party, via its controllers and money bags within the so-called ” 1%,” to attack anything which would help the working people of the nation or, especially, stop them from being driven into poverty.

    I do thank them for the welcome contrast which they provide; i.e.; Green Party = anti-worker, anti-job, and poverty promoter vs Constitution Party = pro-worker, pro-job, and prosperity promoter.

    The distinction could not be clearer.

    “Well morons, the fact is that the biggest ” greenhouse gas ” ( 95%++ ) is WATER VAPOR!! CO2 is .38 of 1% of gases!!”

    Carbon dioxide is, indeed, in the range you posit (0.38-0.4% of the atmosphere).

    Water vapor is also about 0.4% of the atmosphere.

    Another group keen on Fear Mongering,
    “Don’t forget to make your donation”!-LOL

    Stop ALL Force and FRAUD!!

    Please don’t be misguided by these deluted earth worshippers, fraud is FRAUD and they want the GRANT money from the taxpayers (your) pockets and also FORCE you to comply!!!

    A much more just, SANE, sensible and honest approach is the LP, new members needed ……

    2.2 Environment

    We {The Libertarian Party} support a clean and healthy environment and sensible use of our natural resources. Private landowners and conservation groups have a vested interest in maintaining natural resources. Pollution and misuse of resources cause damage to our ecosystem. Governments, unlike private businesses, are unaccountable for such damage done to our environment and have a terrible track record when it comes to environmental protection. Protecting the environment requires a clear definition and enforcement of individual rights in resources like land, water, air, and wildlife. Free markets and property rights stimulate the technological innovations and behavioral changes required to protect our environment and ecosystems. We realize that our planet’s climate is constantly changing, but environmental advocates and social pressure are the most effective means of changing public behavior.

    2.3 Energy and Resources

    While energy is needed to fuel a modern society, government should not be subsidizing any particular form of energy. We oppose all government control of energy pricing, allocation, and production.

    2.4 Government Finance and Spending

    All persons are entitled to keep the fruits of their labor. We call for the repeal of the income tax, the abolishment of the Internal Revenue Service and all federal programs and services not required under the U.S. Constitution. We oppose any legal requirements forcing employers to serve as tax collectors. Government should not incur debt, which burdens future generations without their consent. We support the passage of a “Balanced Budget Amendment” to the U.S. Constitution, provided that the budget is balanced exclusively by cutting expenditures, and not by raising taxes.

    2.5 Money and Financial Markets

    We favor free-market banking, with unrestricted competition among banks and depository institutions of all types. Individuals engaged in voluntary exchange should be free to use as money any mutually agreeable commodity or item. We support a halt to inflationary monetary policies and unconstitutional legal tender laws.

    Climate Voter Power Pledge, a pledge to not to vote for any candidate who supports a climate-killing “All of the Above” approach to energy production.

    That approach is only possible due to government subsidization of many of the costs and risks of fossil and nuclear power development.

    “Well morons, the fact is that the biggest ” greenhouse gas ” ( 95%++ ) is WATER VAPOR!! CO2 is .38 of 1% of gases!! So when will you have your demonstrations to ” ban water ” so that the earth can be saved? ”

    If you had actually evaluated the scientific evidence, you would know that water being the “biggest” greenhouse gas does not at all negate the negative impact of CO2 in the atmosphere. Water vapor concentrations equilibrate in the atmosphere based on two factors: pressure and temperature. Water vapor results in a feedback loop, whereby an increase in CO2 concentration results in higher temperatures, which result in higher water vapor concentrations, ad infinitum. That is, water vapor is something that we can’t oversaturate the atmosphere with, because the atmosphere will only hold so much based on pressure and temperature — whereas CO2 on the other hand is a gas that is generally only removed by photosynthesizing organisms and can therefore increase indefinitely. Thus, CO2 is the gas that needs the most environmental control measures because it will continue to increase if there aren’t enough photosynthesizing organisms to remove it. This increase in CO2 will raise temperatures which will increase the amount of water vapor, further increasing temperatures, etc.

    If you were a biologist (or a geologist), you would know that water operates under a cycle, as does carbon — but the enormous level of hydrocarbon combustion that humans have added to the mix is not a level that plants have evolved to absorb adequately. This is why the carbon cycle is more important than the water cycle when it comes to impacts on global warming. CO2 concentrations can continue to increase as a result of our emissions, thus eventually adding to the water vapor loop, whereas we don’t have any direct control (nor do we need it) for the water cycle. If water levels get beyond a certain point of saturation, it will precipitate out (e.g. rain, snow, etc.), whereas CO2 can’t be removed from the atmosphere as a precipitate.

    Next time, before calling others around you “morons” you should get your facts straight so that label isn’t pointed right back at you for being ignorant and uninformed.

    Your hyperbole and talking points are also very predictable, considering that you are an actual chairman for the Constitutional Party. Any party can be considered pro-job, pro-worker, anti-poverty, just as any party can be considered the opposite. It all depends on where you look. The most important thing to remember in any case is that the environmental capital on this planet is finite and operates under cyclical relationships. None of us will have happy workers, jobs, etc., in the long run if the environmental capital is depleted. This means that sustainability and the environment are the two most important things we can worry about via our political decisions, because those two things affect the prosperity of everything around us. We are only alive because we humans found a niche within nature. Let’s not destroy our natural capital. Let’s be cautious, reasonable, and have the foresight to look at how our actions affect the sustainability of our species as well as others that we depend on (i.e. our food and the ecosystem it depends on).
