Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy has issued a directive for the U.S. peasantry.She's not even that well educatedL From Wikipedia: A native of Boston, in 1976 McCarthy graduated from the University of Massachusetts Boston as a Bachelor of Arts in Social Anthropology. She later attended Tufts University, and from there she gained the further degree of Master of Science in Environmental Health Engineering and Planning and Policy in 1981.
"People have to start living a life that's commensurate with reductions in greenhouse gases," McCarthy said during a recent social discussion with Mashable.
Who is this woman to tell anyone how they should live? Was she elected? No. Called by God? No. Hired by the American people? No.
McCarthy was appointed by President Obama. She runs a political agency for a political administration in maybe the most political city in world history. She's neither prophet nor angel.This echo's Hillary Clinton's "We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
Yet she makes a pronouncement as if she has the moral authority, the heavenly justification, to tell others how they must live. She demands we return to an era in which humans produced less carbon dioxide emissions and therefore lived much more primitively.
Why do we put up with such arrogance? Why are we constantly subject to these bullies?
We need to put the entire Federal government back on the 1899 diet. First, take away their air conditioning in summer. No cooling for human comfort. The electricity is mostly produced by burning coal, and the coolants kill the ozone. Let them set the way. And no travel. Let them communicate by phone.
