I think the OP is more pointing out the hypocrisy of the Global Warming hustlers.

I see people in my area with Obama, and Hillary bumper stickers driving huge, gas guzzling SUV's and driving way over the speed limit. They don't want to change their lifestyle but love to Virtue Signal their hypocrisy. No, people want to drive their big trucks and Suv's and they want to drive FAST.

Back in 1973, I was living and Canada and the Arab countries decided to quit shipping oil to the US. I needed to drive from Vancouver to San Francisco a couple of weeks after the boycott started.

The THREE Republican Governors, Washington(Evans), Oregon(McCall), California(Reagan), immediately lowered the speed limit to 55 MPH to save gas. Evans in Washington dropped it to 50 MPH, but later raised it back to 55 MPH. They also ordered that streetlights be shut off after 10:00?? pm and all businesses were to shut their outside lights and signs when closed.

It was weird driving down I-5 with only an odd business sign lit, and all the streetlights off. We as college students, drove all night long. But it was I thought a appropriate response by the Governors to an emergency.

So here we are almost 50 years later. This time talking about life on the planet ending in 12 years. The Democrats say they want to impose TAXES to save the planet. Well, instead of taxes how about 55 MPH. The amount of CO2 generate by vehicles is significantly less at 55 MPH and transportation is a MAJOR contributor to C02 generation.

Washington, Oregon and California are very, very liberal states these days committed to combating global climate change. One Governor, Inslee is running for President on this issue alone. He is that committed to reducing C02.

Ah, but there is President Trump. EXCEPT speed limits are set by the states, not the Federal Government. Just like in 1973, we can have 55 MPH speed limits on I-5, with the streetlights off, OVERNIGHT.

All we need is for the three Democrat governors to commit to saving the planet and dropping the speed limit to 55 MPH......TOMORROW or AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

If you live in one of these states.....write the Governors and ask them to SAVE THE PLANET...SPEED LIMIT 55.
I think all those who are truly worried about global warming should voluntarily slow down. Clearly almost know one on Long Island are concerned as a drive on the LIE can show. Overwhelming percentage of cars are large and fast.

I think all those who are truly worried about global warming should voluntarily drive less. All political rallies about it should be done through gotowebinar.

The 55 limit was supposed to last 1 year (1974) under Nixon. It was later that politicians, due to lobbying from insurance companies and law enforcement for revenue generation purposes, that the 55 limit was made "permanent".

I see some of the biggest AGW supporters stepping off private jets.

Film festivals are where you get two things in abundance:
Climate change hysteria
Private jets

I heard 1-1/2 years, on November 3, 2020. The world for Democrats will end, with no hope in sight.
