    Isn’t this just awesome? The Climate Nazis want to do things that won’t make a damn bit of difference for Climate Change, because fossil fuel companies are more than big enough to pool resources and form their own captive or self-insurance options.

    But man, won’t those Climate Clowns feel righteous if they can bully insurance companies into doing something that is all symbolism anyway.

      Craig: Where does oil come from? Not a trick question. We were supposed to run out of oil, what, 40 – 50 years ago. But, there was just a new discovery on the Texas / New Mexico border of a HUGE field. Bigger than anything the Saudis have. And another down in the Gulf. So what process produces oil? I’ve yet to find anyone in the “patch” that can answer that. So what, you say? Is oil really a “fossil” fuel? Coal is another story. The plant remains in coal establish that source. My friends in the “patch” tell me that there is so much known oil waiting to be drilled or produced (capped wells), that oil should be selling at around $5.00 a barrel.

        retired risk manager: What’s your point? It looks like you are supporting what Craig says. Is that what you are trying to say, merely adding on to what Craig said concerning oil supply? Large oil reserves in our country is a good thing right?

        Ah, yes. Peak Oil. I had almost forgotten Climate Doom’s favorite cousin, Peak Oil theories, the Climate Nazis’ favorite fantasy from 10 years ago that fossil fuels were going to run out soon so we better hurry up with that backyard windmill after all.

        Peak Oil drifted away into nothing, with no apologies or explanations from the Climate Clowns, just like Al Gore’s predictions of doom from 2009 . . . they just drift away.

          “Nazis” … you keep using this word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

            Oh, sorry. I forgot you lefties reserved the term “nazi” for Republicans only. Bush. Reagan. Trump. My bad.

            Wrong. I only refer to Nazis as Nazis. You know, the REAL Nazis. Not the ones people label as Nazis just to play on people’s emotions that are not actually Nazis at all.

            No, Rosenblatt. I just am not thinking, but knowining it’s you who doesn’t know what “Nazi” means. Climate Nazi is a legitimate application of terms. I’ll tell you what “Nazi” really means. It’s short for National Socialist, just another form of Socialism, tyrannical government control and that’s what the Climate Nazis want to do and therefore are, Socialists who want to force the world into Socialism.

            Nazi:
            1. a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
            DEROGATORY
            2. a person with extreme racist or authoritarian views.

            So who would like to try to debate what a nazi really is and how to properly use it. it is not reserved for anyone besides the definitions above. If you try to use it otherwise like Craig did in this post, you are overreaching the true definition and are trying to be a political hack.

    These people are oblivious to anti-trust law. They are, in essence, trying to coerce insurers into participating in an illegal boycott of the energy industry

    Liberalism – ideas so good they have to be shoved down your throat…no pun intended.

    Lighten up. You know I was using the term to mock the totalitarian impulse of these little climate dictators. When you are telling everyone to stop owning stock in fossil fuel companies, something so pointless as to be a joke, you KNOW these people would love to take away all of our freedoms in the name of planet-saving.

      And you can’t come up with another word than Nazi’s to express your views?

        And you can’t answer my very legitimate, on-point questions? Please. You are playing the Virtue Signaling Game. If using “nazi” is so abhorrent, you would admit it is abhorrent for the media to routinely use it against Republicans.

    Yes Craig, more and more scientists are speaking out against the so-called consensus. My dad was a retired physicist who signed, along with probably 50,000 scientists, a petition against the climate alarmists. My unscientific term is Chicken Littles (the sky is falling!), but you get my meaning.

      Beto (phony name guy) came out with the “only 12 years” lie about Climate Change. He was rebutted by one of the two authors of the IPCC’s last report.

      REAL climate scientists realize all the lies and exaggerations about Climate Change are destroying the public’s trust in anything these Climate Clowns say. Ain’t it amazing! Liberals just don’t get the fact that constant lying destroys their own credibility, their ability to get anything done at all.

        ‘…don’t get the fact that constant lying destroys their own credibility, their ability to get anything done at all.”

        Maybe they should declare an emergency…they don’t have to, but if they want to get it done faster.

          Estimates are that about 1,000,000. people will be apprehended at the border this year. So how many are NOT caught and get through. How many drug dealers? How many people with drugs? How many criminals from Latin countries looking for more payoffs in America for the same crimes?

          Not an emergency? Your opinion, but not the opinion of millions.

          On the other hand, no legitimate Climate Scientist thinks we only have 12 years left. Total, hysterical, Leftist nonsense.

        Phony name guy? I’m sure you feel the same way about Rafael Ted Cruz, too, huh? Who cares if Beto uses his nickname? I certainly don’t care if Cruz wants to go by Ted. And, was it Beto who said that or AOC? I remember AOC saying that. Boy, she sure has the Republicans confused thinking she actually has any power. Girl can tweet, that’s about as effective as she gets. She’s basically just trolling the R party.

          Try to keep up with the laughable idea factory that is the Left; Beto said in the past 2 days that he agreed we only have 12 years.

          And no, Beto is a Hispanic nickname, not a nickname for the Anglo “Robert”. And Beto is NOT Hispanic. Kinda like Pocahontas Warren, all Cultural Appropriation from white liberals.
