Batsh*t Crazy Green Party

The batshit crazy pale Green Party are like those who felt the best way to handle Covid was to lock ourselves away and go back to the Middle Ages. There are technological solutions to the problem of the climate emergency. We will survive and defeat this threat. But submission suits the Batshit Crazy Green Party agenda. There are other and better ways. But first we need to get rid of the ideologues who have hijacked the climate emergency to further their own narrow agenda. The Stone Age didn’t end because we ran out of stone: we just found something better. Promoting the idea that we should give up personal transport and revert to more primitive ways of doing things is not the way we do things. It’s over 50 years since the first man walked on the moon: we need that “can do” attitude again, and not the “we can’t do that,” doom laden negative outlook. John Stewart put it best I think:

Rivers are getting dirty,
The wind is getting bad;
War and hate are killing off
The only earth we have.
But the world all stopped to watch it
On that July afternoon —
Watched a man named Armstrong
Walk upon the moon
 
Exactly what did this junket achieve? Has he convinced the Chinese to grow lettuce on their window sills, stop developing roads between their biggest cities, or maybe get investment for Ireland? Their arrogance is astonishing.
 
Eamon Watermelon Ryan emitted 4.5 tonnes of carbon on his and his advisers trip to the Far East. Here's the breakdown of the batshit Crazy Pale Green Party's emissions:

"The Green Party leader will travel to Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai for St Patrick’s Day and trip equates to a total of 4.52 metric tonnes, according to the leading flight carbon calculator website.

His colleague, Equality minister Roderic O’Gorman, is flying to Delhi and Mumbai in India, followed by a flight to Dhaka in Bangladesh. His flight carbon will total 3.36 metric tonnes.

Meanwhile, Green Party Tourism Minister Catherine Martin is flying to Los Angeles and San Diego, which amounts to 2.39 metric tonnes."


But that's ok because you're going to pay for it. Here's the batshit crazy Pale Green Party justification:

“Each minister’s department will record the carbon emissions associated with their flights and pay an amount equivalent to the travel emissions impact into the Climate Action Fund, which provides assistance and financial support to projects which will help Ireland achieve its climate and energy targets.”

So essentially, some guy in a Range Rover 5.0 V8 Supercharged can drive wherever he likes because the carbon tax he pays on his fuel bills will go into the Climate Action Fund, which provides assistance and financial support to projects which will help Ireland achieve its climate and energy targets.


The election can't come soon enough.........
 
Hopefully it will increase our trade with China, which has been growing nicely over the past decade.
Fuck them, it's less trade we should be having with those bums. Cosying up to Putin like that, they're a prime example of the appalling mistake of helping despotic nations with imperial ambitions build up their economic power.

The Chinese need to be put back in their box.

Business in business, do you feel the same about the American companies here and their leaders cozying up to the Saudis?

The Saudis are despots too but again, they were empowered by an accident of nature, the fact that they are oil rich nation means they have serious muscle on the world stage. As bad as they are they aren't cosying up to Putin afaik.

The Chinese are enabling Putin, they are making themselves complicit in his war crimes, those of us with morals have a problem with that.
