• EPA: Climate Change Puts Coffee At Risk

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has quickly become a parody of itself.

    Unbelievably inane true stories like employees urinating “on the toilet seat and the floor” and others leaving a “trail of poop leading out in hallways,” have helped make a mockery of this already ridiculous federal agency.

    And now, the EPA has completely jumped the shark.

    During a speech Wednesday at a Council on Foreign Relations event in Washington, D.C., Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy said that “climate change puts the world’s coffee-growing regions at risk.”

    Yeah. You read that right.

    If they couldn’t convince you that the world was losing its grip on clean air, they knew you’d pay attention once they started talking about coffee.

    “Climate change injects volatility into the global marketplace. Volatility leads to instability,” McCarthy said. “Take coffee. Now coffee is a temperature sensitive crop. Climate change puts the world’s coffee-growing regions at risk.” (Video above.)

    And of course coffee “growth depends on a safe environment and a stable climate,” McCarthy said.  “We can no longer accept the false premise that pollution is somehow part of the growing pains of growth. If that’s your premise, then the foundation of that growth was not built to last. It was wrongly designed.”

    These people are unbelievable.

    But McCarthy did say one true thing in her speech: “Climate change isn’t just a moral responsibility we must accept. It’s an economic opportunity we can seize.”

    And that’s the crux of this circus.

    Climate change is, indeed, “an economic opportunity” that liberal wackos from Gina McCarthy to Al Gore “can seize” to their benefit at the expense of taxpayers.
