House Dem on weather-climate talk: “It hasn’t worked so far. Nothing we’re doing is working”

E&E news reports:

[Rep. Henry Waxman’s] Energy and Commerce panel colleague, Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), wondered whether Democrats’ weather talk has helped marshal support for climate action.

“It hasn’t worked so far. … Nothing we’re doing is working,” Welch said in an interview this week. “There has to be some confidence that we can solve the problem in a way that builds the economy.”

  1. “There has to be some confidence that we can solve the problem in a way that builds the economy.” So, it’s a confidence game.

  2. So a government that can’t control its spending, the actions of it’s bureaucrats, or even inform the President of what is going on is going to take on controlling the weather?

  3. “Solve the problem?!”
    There has been no conclusive demonstration yet that there IS a problem, let alone one that is “solvable.”
    The circumstance about which everyone seems to be upset (increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations) has by all accounts been produced by economic growth. To strive to maintain economic growth while reducing CO2 concentrations is comparable to adding fuel to the fire to try to cool the house.
    Economic growth IS the solution. CO2 is NOT the problem.

  4. There is conclusive evidence the government is capable of creating problems but are not capable of solving problems. They can spend trillions of dollars but never solve any problems.
