Washington Governor Claims ‘Just 59 Days’ To Save Children From Global Warming

You don’t hate children, do you?

Daily Caller: Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee warned there was “just 59 days” to save future generations from “an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next.”

Inslee went on a lengthy Twitter rant in efforts to convince the state legislature to pass legislation to tax carbon dioxide emissions. Washington residents voted down Inslee’s last carbon tax plan by a wide margin in 2016.

The state legislature’s session ends in 59 days, on March 8. Democrats have a slim majority in both state legislative chambers.

Inslee wants lawmakers to pass a tax on carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities.

Inslee’s plan would tax carbon dioxide emissions at $20 a ton in 2019, that would gradually rise at 3.5 percent above inflation each following year. Inslee’s office estimates it will raise $3.3 billion over the next four years.

About $950 million would go toward education programs. The rest would go toward green energy programs and research, water infrastructure, wildfire mitigation. Some money would offset taxes or go to poor families.  read more

  1. Is he willing to bet his life?

    When Archimedes bragged that he could launch a ship, by himself, with a single rope, the Tyrant of Syracuse (not New York) said “OK – but if you don’t – you die.” Archimedes accepted the challenge and prevailed.
    This JerkOff should do the same. If in 60 days what he’s predicted hasn’t occurred, he should kill himself.

    Put Up or Shut Up.

  2. 59 days…… !!!!!
    I read the headline and thought, “We’re all gonna die!”

    He had me going there for a minute.
    He’s such a kidder.
    They don’t call it the left coast for nothing.

  3. OMG! We are all going to die again!

    We need to hurry up and pass this to get $3.3 billion so we can grease our donors and then we get 10% off the top kick-backs for re-election! Hurry!

  4. SON-OF-A-BITCH !!!! …. now, why didn’t I think of this scam?

    ya know, I bet it works for about 50% of the voting population! … for about any shit-brained idea!

  5. Jay Inslee is a dumbass and an embarrassment as Governor of the State of Washington. He doesn’t speak for me and most of Wash. state outside of the Seattle area. If Dixie Lee Ray could come back from the grave she’d kick his ass and show him what real science is. Keep it up Jay and we’ll all move to Idaho or Montana just because. And Jay personally as one of your unfortunate constituents in Eastern Wash. you suck!

  6. Poor Lazlo gets hit by a Bus.
    It looks grim. Time to pull the plug.
    “Keep him hooked up! He’s still got a chance!” From the Resident
    “Yank it already!” From the Hospital Administrator, looking at the Insurance policy.
    “No! He hasn’t paid his death tax. Keep him hooked up until we determine his assets!” The IRS Grief Counselor

  7. 59 days huh. So at the end of 59 days will this guy resign? How about just put a gun in his mouth for being a fucking idiot. Either one is good with me.

  8. 32 billion tons divided by 7.7 billion people is 4.2 tons per person. Tell ya what, you get all the sub saharans to pony up 80 bucks per year and I’ll do it too. Somehow I doubt the slimeate outlook will change.

  9. Interesting. The voters turned him away (both conservative and liberal apparently) as recent as 2016 and now he’s bypassing them and trying for the legislative vote. If that works I would hope that the voters punish the dems at the poles however I suspect that the dems have a good sense of self-preservation and this will fail. If the good Governor had any sense of honor he’d then resign and work toward this goal as a private citizen. Of course then Tom Steyer would cancel his er, “pension” he’s promised him.

  10. Washington state’s Democratic Governor Jay Inslee isn’t just out of touch with the national debt. He is out of touch with reality.

  11. WE are so screwed here in Washington. On day 60 I will report in if we are dead or only the children have died.
    All taxes have to be voted on by the people of the whole state, so we are still screwed because they all want more taxes here.

  12. He has joined a long list of GW idiots whose predictions of the end of the world by some future date that has come and gone with life continuing on just as it has for thousands of years.

    I wonder if they ever realize how rapidly they are moving toward cloning the “leadership” in the movie, Idiocracy?

  13. I think what he is really trying to say is in 59 days I’ll run out of time in this legislative session to milk you racists of all the tax revenue I can. Just wait until the next session you racist bastards, I’ll get another chance then. Remember, libs are for the children, right podesta?

  14. As Long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of children the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost and deprivation. – The Governor of Washington said that? I thought it was the guy with the funny little mustache.

  15. What a relief. It’s usually Oregon democrats causing national embarrassment. Oh. And one more thing. Of the 3.3 billion revenue increase, am I the only one suspicious that money and more will be given away to existing government workers?

  16. I just heard on the local news this morning that this dumb SOB also wants to pass a carbon tax in the state of Washington this upcoming legislative session. I despise this jerk, he’s trying to outdo Jerry Brown in destroying this beautiful state. Hopefully we can rid of him for good in 2020, he’s the worst democrap governor ever in my 65 years as a lifelong Wash. state resident.
