Biden’s “Turbocharged” Climate Ironies

Picture of words associate with climate change

How do you “turbocharge” electric power? You can’t. Nevertheless, Joe Biden and his climate screamers just unleashed thousands of new regulations on Americans at the UN Climate Conference, claiming they are “turbocharging” their crackdown on American oil and gas, ending fossil fuels by 2035. What folly.

Like “illegal aliens,” they can then outlaw the word “fossil fuels,” begin tearing down those circular monuments to oil refinement, energy preparedness, and capitalism – fuel storage tanks. Next will be the funding for levitation, anti-gravity boots, cold fusion, and Rube Goldberg’s latest. Folly on folly.

Back in college, I liked fast cars. Who didn’t? For 600 dollars in 1982, I purchased a Hanger Queen, a beautiful 1963 “turbocharged” Spyder Corvair. It did not run. These cars were condemned by activist Ralph Nadar as “unsafe at any speed,” one reason I bought it. The other was the turbocharger.

I had no idea what a turbocharger was, but it sure sounded cool. Books said it made a car zoom.  The Spyder’s speedometer went to 120 mph. So, one summer working on the rear-mounted engine and she ran, if barely.

That phrase, “she ran,” is misleading. I had not driven her yet, but getting a car not started in 20 years, old belts, coagulated gas, and turbocharger to idle was wild

Here is the lesson Mr. Biden apparently missed, when he bought that corvette for storing classified documents (by the way, none came with my car).  Lesson: Turbochargers are delicate, and only work with combustion engines. They make those engines highly efficient, but only by using oil and gas.

A “turbocharger” pushes exhaust (air-fuel mix) from a gas-powered combustion engine through a turbine, pressurizing the air and sending it to the cylinders through an intake manifold, in turn making the engine more efficient.

Back at the ranch, what does Biden want from his “turbocharged” climate agenda? You will hardly believe it, although maybe you will, as so much is unbelievable.

Standing beside his “White House Climate Czar,” Biden – ever the consummate plagiarist – stole a line from God, swearing to “slow the rate of climate change.”

Biden’s “Climate Czar” – fluttering nearby – then declared, “Under President Biden and Vice President Harris’s leadership, the U.S is turbocharging the speed and scale of climate action, at home and abroad… to tackle super-pollutants like methane.”

Super, super, super! You could almost hear Harris giggling at “leadership” being used to describe her, then Biden giggling when he finally got the joke. They then promised to cut, ban, tax, mandate, prosecute, and reverse God’s climate.

For anyone not used to this kind of super statement by super people on a super stage, with promises of turbocharging electric cars, beating China to hyper-inflation, this was a tour de force, rock & roll without rock or roll, pure turbo-folly.

Biden promised to “protect the planet,” stop “super pollutant” methane, and push a “super emitter program” secretly incentivizing informers on methane emitters.

Makes one wonder…Agriculture and humans top the list of global methane emitters, so one is hard-pressed to see how this will work unless all are informed on all.

If you think this a jest, all studies on methane conclude agriculture and human waste top global emissions, with agriculture being 30 percent of all methane emissions, “primarily because of enteric fermentation by ruminant livestock, such as cattle and sheep.” What is that? Irritable bowel syndrome, flatulence, cow farting.

I mean thank God, or rather Biden, that someone is on this, at last. “The Global Methane Assessment published in 2021” shows “methane emissions from livestock (including cattle) are the largest sources of agricultural emissions worldwide,” as “a single cow can make up to 99 kilograms of methane gas per year.”

Humans are part of the problem, of course, some more than others. We like to drive and stay warm, eat and drink. Landfills and wastewater treatment account for 18 percent, biomass 15 percent, and – who knew? – “rice production” tops biomass emissions. Then add wild animals, no gas-x. Whoa.

Net-net, there’s a steaming pile of stuff to deal with. Thankfully we have the right people on it. Mr. Biden and his turbocharged activists are all over it, with thousands of new regulations coming our way.

Here is the closing irony. My 1963 Spyder’s delicate combustion turbocharger was efficient. Old, it soon broke, leaving me on my bicycle, also efficient. But between us, we made less methane than a standard cow, which leads me back to how – Mr. Biden will turbocharge electric power?

I find it fascinating that although all the hype, fear mongering and unrealistic promises by the globalists pushing these so-called climate change policies around the world, which by the way are nothing more than a huge financial scam to transfer the wealth of the masses to the small subset of WEF / NWO types hyping this “crisis” non-stop, have proven to be both technologically unachievable based on their sole options of unreliable and overly expensive wind and solar, as well as economically ruinous to whole nations whatever they have been tried, the populations of most western nations continue to allow their “leaders” to march their countries down this road to ruin. The United States now of course included since Team Biden has raced to catch the United States up to the dismal state of economic and societal decay that the western European nations have enjoyed for over a decade.

You would think electricity costs increasing by a factor of 3X or 4X over just the last decade in most of Europe, which in turn led to manufacturing bases in each of these European countries declining by 20 to 25 percent as cost of operations made their domestic economies less and less competitive against the lone country, China, that has benefitted from this scam even as China refuses to adopt any of these national suicide policies, would have sparked some significant and meaningful pushback from the citizenry to stop this nonsense. Yet surprisingly, the populations just continue to meekly accept a steady decease in their standard of living, as more and more ludicrous “climate policies” get heaped on them every year.

Yes, Biden uses terms that demonstrate he has no real understanding of anything technological. Yet in the grand scheme of all the defects from which Biden has suffered his whole life, this one is the least important. Biden has never shown any real knowledge or interest in acquiring the necessary knowledge to make sound decisions on a whole host of issues his whole life. That he uses completely inappropriate terms to discuss climate related policies is just par for the course when it comes to the puppet occupying the White House. Just promise him a bowl of chocolate chip ice cream and you can get him to say anything you want.

Thanks, Mr. Charles for helping us find some humor in the otherwise destructive destiny old Joe has planned for us.

If you think the California bullet train is another overpriced government boondoggle, look up the CO2 soil injection system being installed across the state of Iowa sometime. Does their governor “endorse” this too? Maybe its paid for using the ethanol subsidies they get…

This all boils down to 4 words. Control, power and communism. Just as communists declared God dead in Russia, the liberals want you to believe they can control anything and everything. In reality the only thing they can control is you, but only if you let them.

Question??? All these countries attended the “Climate” seminar, so how many “electric” jets were used to fly them in??? How many electric charging stations are installed up in the sky to “recharge” these jets? Does John Kerry have an electric jet or even the WH? And how is climate change going to help a country whose population doesn’t have drinking water or decent housing???

Biden and his cronies are just doing what they do. What they do has very little to do with common sense or in most cases actual science. Most politicians that get on the bandwagon with an agenda know very little to nothing about what they talk. We have to get rid of the politicians that just want to pass more laws based on a knee jerk reaction to get more votes. WE the people have to be smarter than the career politicians and not allow them to destroy our great country. It’s time for US to wake up.

Are there statistics to tell which country is the biggest polluter has the least efficient vehicles and produces the greatest amount of smoke smog and other environmentally unfriendly elements Which are the biggest abusers of the Mother Earth By the hysteria and endless scorn and blather one would think it is the USA I would like the facts and also to know how are activists doing there If the concern is genuine it must apply to everyone everywhere or forget the whole scam

I guess that it was extremely important for this most recent climate summit to be held in one of the most expensive countries in the world!!! And that the US Climate Czar, Kerry, and VP Harris needed to add to the US footprint by taking two separate private planes!!! I would like to mention that the US has done mountains of improvement in the climate realm but it seems like we are one of the few countries who is actually working on that!!! Why???

I’ve been wondering for some time when Biden is going to start taxing human flatulence. My biggest worry is how he will measure it!

While the self-appointed, primarily tax payer funded elite jet around the world spewing tons of carbon per trip, us the mere working sheeple, generate less carbon per year than most of them generate per week. Yet they lecture us on our need to reduce?

Joe Biden being such a windbag, Joe will be placing his lips over the intake of his “turbocharger” and blow! Being such a blowhard, perhaps he will rupture a gut and be the end this high methane producer!
Now would be a great time for all you good folks to call the White House and purchase your tickets to the White House Christmas Ball! I did and I was informed; I’m sorry, sir, but the White House does not have balls!
The bags under Joe’s eyes are his transplanted foreskins!
Truth is, Joe Biden needs a proctologist to take of his a$%h^le!

For a responsible, efficient, and safe power source with virtually zero carbon emissions, nothing beats nuclear. If the scientifically-challenged public is worried now that the oceans will really boil, they will become apoplectic thinking we will all glow in the dark. Reasoning won’t help, but nuclear is tops anyway.
And the money not spent on boondoggles can go to building and strengthening the power grid. That’s a bigger worry than climate change.

There is more to this story than climate change and leftist socialist marxism.The rest of the world can’t come up to what AMERICAS standards used to be,so they are working to bring AMERICA down to equalize things world over.

More Global Warming FANTASY WORLD from Dictator Beijing Biden.
REAL Scientists have already debunked the FANTASY WORLD of Global Warming. Even NASA debunked it in 2019.
Yet, Dictator Beijing biden keeps Destroying the United States over his lies with FANTASY WORLD Green agenda.
NOBODY in their right mind would believe the FANTASY WORLD of Global Warming.

Why would we the people let the liberals think they can change or control acts of God?
In the good old days, we burned high sulfur coal, thus supplementing global warming CO2 with global cooling SO2 in perfect balance. Then government came along and started playing ‘god’ with it all. Bottom line, less government equals more freedom; including Gods’ freedom to perform ‘acts of God’ as his wisdom sees fit.
