WATCH: Radical Left Net-Gen Guy Demands San Angelo Adopt a Green New Deal

SAN ANGELO, TX – The San Angelo City Council was welcomed into their Thursday meeting with public comment from a young citizen of San Angelo who is attempting to push the radical New Green Deal on the City of San Angelo.

In the video above, published on Jul. 7, 2022, Nathan Terrazas offered a public comment on how the City of San Angelo should be doing more to combat climate change in San Angelo. 

In his speech, he suggested that San Angelo jump on the Green New Deal by making a "Climate Action Plan." Cities across the United States have adopted these plans to help fight carbon emissions. The places in Texas with plans like this are Houston, Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. All of these cities have more than 10 times the amount of people, drivers, and factories as San Angelo.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, these large left-leaning urban sprawls have made a promise to have "net zero" carbon emissions by 2050.

Terrezas went on to list the impacts that the city will go through If the plan is not implemented. The list included"

  • On-going droughts,
  • intense wildfires, and
  • an increase in floods. 

"These things threaten my family and friends livelihoods as well as my own," said Terrazas. "Taking action by inserting this plan will bring reassurance to me and my loved ones of our own security and safety."

Ideas that are common with Climate Action Plans are government regulation on oil and gas, factories, and even if you can leave your vehicle running on idle while stopped.

Since it was only public comment the council did not have a comment on his speech.

Federal legislation passed for a Green New Deal was sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)in 2019 however it failed to gain traction in the U.S. Senate. According to the Washington Post, the components of the failed legislation were (and many of those components have nothing to do with droughts, wildfires, or floods):

  • "Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States."
  • "Providing all people of the United States with – (i) high-quality health care; (ii) affordable, safe, and adequate housing; (iii) economic security; and (iv) access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature."
  • "Providing resources, training, and high-quality education, including higher education, to all people of the United States."
  • "Meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources."
  • "Repairing and upgrading the infrastructure in the United States, including . . . by eliminating pollution and greenhouse gas emissions as much as technologically feasible."
  • "Building or upgrading to energy-efficient, distributed, and ‘smart' power grids, and working to ensure affordable access to electricity."
  • "Upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification."
  • "Overhauling transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically feasible, including through investment in – (i) zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and manufacturing; (ii) clean, affordable, and accessible public transportation; and (iii) high-speed rail."
  • "Spurring massive growth in clean manufacturing in the United States and removing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and industry as much as is technologically feasible."
  • "Working collaboratively with farmers and ranchers in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector as much as is technologically feasible.

Green energy willnot adequately power our economy without nuclear energy and natural gas.  I hope Biden comes to his senses before we are at a point of no return.

All these pie in the sky schemes to make the world green are laughable.  There is already so much corruption in government, it will never be possible to achieve.  A wind generator uses 700 gallons or more of oil and has to be changed frequently.  lubes are also necessary.  The blades crack and wear out and they do not break down in the environment.  The mining necessary for batteries destroy the ground with toxicity for who knows how long, plus when the batteries wear out, where do they go.  I have already read  about the limitations of electric vehicles and heard first hand horror stories.  Range and not enough power to pull anything significant.  If everyone has an electric car to charge it would be a burden on the grid.  If you want to be green, build a insulated concrete home and use less electricity.  The green new deal is very suspect.

No such thing as green energy.

When you loons can figure out how to get volcanos above the ocean and below to cease emitting the worlds most toxic gases known to man, even if you turn off all cars and fossil fuel power plants and make all these 3rd world countries quit emitting their factories toxins, we will still never slow down the worlds ongoing carbon footprint progression.

If you want to help your so called climate change how about start investigating and stopping all the toxins that all countries on this planet have been for years secretly dumping in our oceans, which directly controls our climate and weather systems.

These are the same mindsets that blame the gun for people getting murdered.

Move to Austin you’ll fit in much better there. Of course that would involve you growing up and moving out of your Mommy’s and Daddy’s house so obviously not going to happen anytime soon ;)

Drought with occasional flooding sounds like typical West Texas weather to me lol.

What a RADICAL idea it is to take small steps towards improving the climate. The average forecasted high temperature for the next 5 days is over 106 degrees. This is only going to get worse. Open your eyes. The two-party political system has created 2 extreme ideologies that insult each other like children. You can't dismiss this kid just because he is not in your political party, and the name-calling only reflects badly on yourself.

I like most of what you have to say. The climate change... I have my own thoughts on that. I have been an electrical contractor in the green energy sector for several years. I was there when we were using lead acid batteries instead of lithium ion for storage. I believe green energy will be the future. However, it's not even close yet. It's much cheaper to produce green energy than it was 10 years ago. Through invention and innovation we will keep moving forward. Someday I truly expect us to be free of fossil fuels. However, that time is not now or in the very near future. Only a stupid person (our Pres.) would shut down oil production too soon. The USA (our Pres) has stopped most of our oil production to curtail (global climate change). Instead we now pay extra for others to produce our oil. The key word here is (GLOBAL). Instead of our country profiting from it's oil, we now go in debt for another country's oil and the effect is exactly the same.

I remember not being able to go to recess in elementary because it was 108. That was almost 30 years ago. Lol the heat isn’t new. No emergency just hype. Telling people the world is going to end of you don’t enact a certain policy is quite the political strategy. Works on kids like him obviously.

Indeed.  We should look at the trends and not simply the peaks and valleys.  Glacial melt is not taking place just because it was hot yesterday.

Heck, I was outside earlier hand watering and I broke a sweat just because I issued a teeny non-offensive fart.  That's how hot it feels here.  That's a bad sign.

Ride a bicycle, oh yeah but if you do in this town be prepared to be treated worse than a dog.
