Let’s not get our hopes up too high. The last time a celebrity was elected to high office as a Republican, we ended up with this:
Former California governor, actor and anti-carbon crusader Arnold Schwarzenegger issued some harsh words for anyone who doesn’t want the Environmental Protection Agency regulating carbon dioxide.
In a recently posted video, the Terminator star said, “Some politicians even want to shut down the EPA’s ability to regulate carbon! I would like to strap their mouth to an exhaust pipe of a truck, turn on the engine and let’s see how long it would take for them to tap out.”
The main reason sucking on a tailpipe would be unpleasant is the carbon monoxide that is toxic in concentrated doses. Carbon dioxide is harmless except in the alternate universe of leftist ideology. But enviromoonbats often seem to conflate the two.
Something else enviromoonbats often do is indulge in hypocrisy:
Schwarzenegger claims to be anti-fossil fuels, but as governor he used his private jet to fly over three hundred miles back and forth from his [Southern] California mansion to Sacramento several times a week.
Schwarzenegger joined forces with fellow eco-hypocrite James Cameron to make an anti-meat eating public service announcement in June 2016. The two also worked together on Years of Living Dangerously, but he clearly didn’t heed Harrison Ford’s episode on deforestation. In 2014, Business Insider cited a report from the non-profit Global Witness which claimed Schwarzenegger profited heavily from palm oil-related deforestation and that he was invested in one of these companies.
Schwarzenegger was the last Republican governor California will have for the foreseeable future. Let’s hope there isn’t a lesson in that. But at least where ecolunacy is concerned, Trump looks fine so far.
