Happy Hour News
Larry Kudlow, the Baghdad Bob of Economics, decided to jump into the Climate discussion as only he can: by making up merde:
LARRY KUDLOW: I’m still suffering economic shock from yesterday’s Earth Day. It was bac because President Biden announced a 50% cut in carbon emissions in only a few years, which is going to throw a wet blanket over this booming economy for sure. Of course, it will wreck the fossil fuel sector, which still accounts for about 70% of our power.
Speaking of stupid, there’s a study coming out of the University of Michigan which says that to meet the Biden Green New Deal targets, America has to, get this, America has to stop eating meat, stop eating poultry and fish, seafood, eggs, dairy, and animal-based fats. Ok, got that? No burger on July 4. No steaks on the barbecue. I’m sure Middle America is just going to love that. Can you grill those Brussels sprouts? So get ready. You can throw back a plant-based beer with your grilled Brussels sprouts and wave your American flag. Call it July 4th Green.
And because fact checking any of the end-timers from the 4th Reich is always fun: 1) there’s nothing in Biden’s Climate Plan that eliminates food (it actually advocating increases in agriculture) and B) beer is made from plants. Of course, Kudlow is conflating some study with what the Biden plan actually says, but you know, that’s how you lie to the Red Hats.
Kudlow is really bad at his job. I think Possum Hollar might know something about brewing beer, or at least avoiding the Revenue Man.
