President “Under my plan electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket” Obama announced his new “Clean Power Plant Standards” today, complete with graphics featuring faceless “Julia” type characters.

The Democrats began a full court press under the #ActOnClimate hashtag but for the most part they’re steering clear of climate alarmism because voters don’t really care about it. Instead the word has come down to convince people that children will die unless we adopt the standards put forth by President Obama.

So, in short, you are to believe that the people who just implemented a law that canceled millions of people’s health insurance are preparing to savage the coal industry in order to protect children with athsma.

It all goes to show that being a left wing Democrat requires one to be immune from embarrassment.

FACT: Chris Van Hollen has more EPA employees and contractors voting in his district than the vast majority of Congress.

“Carbon pollution” will probably be taking the place of  “greenhouse gas emissions” from here on out. (See also “global warming” –> “climate change” –> “climate disruption.”)

Yay. Bipartisanship or something.

Then there’s Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley like the little brother at the slumber party.

Hey guys, you acting on climate? I can act on climate too. Wanna see? I might run for president. Guys?

But look out! We’ve got a runner!

How soon before Landrieu’s hostage video comes out?

Amen.
