Showing yet again that they can connect any of the world’s ails to the climate change hoax, Sen. Elizabeth Warren released a plan on Monday to address the threat of China’s coronavirus outbreak and similar pandemics. But what the plan lacked in a viable path to contain and fight the viruses themselves, it made up for in the same tired climate change rhetoric that we’ve all heard a million times before. Like sexism, radical Islam, and mass illegal immigration, the threat of global plague can only be solved by cutting CO2 emissions.
“Experts believe the world is due for another bout of pandemic influenza. The latest threat comes from coronavirus, a respiratory condition in the same family of viruses as SARS that is spreading throughout China and just last week reached the United States. With well over 2,000 people infected and a rising death toll, China has restricted the movement of 56 million people. The world is watching closely to determine if this will be designated as our next global Public Health Emergency,” Warren said in a statement.
Warren naturally blamed President Trump for setting the stage for this virus to run amok and kill millions of people. This isn’t quite as ridiculous as Michael Bloomberg’s ads, which blame Trump for hurricanes and earthquakes, but it’s in the same ballpark.
“On the global stage, his decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement demonstrates reckless denial about the role of climate change in fueling epidemics. His foreign policy has damaged long-standing alliances with partners like the U.K. and France, who are critical partners in responding to global health crises,” she wrote.
Warren said that the fight against climate change was integral to stopping the spread of infectious diseases like the coronavirus outbreak in China.
“A changing climate means infectious diseases will spread to new places, and it’s already happening. In 2016, the Zika virus threatened more of the U.S. because changing climates mean the mosquitos that carry it now thrive further and further north. And Lyme disease is expected to increase by 20% in the next decade due to climate change. West Nile is projected to more than double by 2050 due to warming, costing upwards of $1 billion annually. Our health depends on fighting climate change. And I have a lot of plans for that,” she wrote.
Yeah, we don’t doubt that you do. Whenever and wherever there is a problem in the world, rest assured that liberals will define it’s cause as either climate change, some form of bigotry, or Donald J. Trump. And the solution will always be: Expand the federal government.
More predictable smoke signals coming from the biggest hack in the race.
