My Old Boss – The Whack Job

ASPEN, Colo. — President Jimmy Carter called a tax on carbon emissions “the only reasonable approach” to combating climate change during an appearance here Tuesday, but lamented that even piecemeal actions are unlikely to get through a divided Congress.

Carter, 89, who received a lifetime achievement award on the final day of the American Renewable Energy Day summit, spoke during a luncheon attended by a number of conservationists as well as Ted Turner, T. Boone Pickens and Tom Steyer, the California billionaire pledging to devote his personal finances to political candidates willing to take action on climate change.

The 39th president, who created the Dept. of Energy and advocated for conservation before scientists began to understand the impact of human activity on climate, told AREI’s Sally Ranney that he didn’t have to deal with the same level of partisan gridlock in Congress as President Obama currently does.

I think now the opportunity is even greater for us to take action. But we had very good support then from Republicans, almost as much from Republicans as Democrats,” he said.

I worked for Carter in 1980 developing oil shale on the western slope of Colorado, The project we were doing would have wiped out western Colorado and pumped massive amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The project was Carter’s brainchild, and fortunately was stopped by Reagan as one of his first actions.

Carter is a typical Democrat – he lies about everything.

    What if Jimmy Carter wasn’t lying–because he was and still is incapable of distinguishing between fantasy and reality?

    What you are purposing is that we acquit old Jimmy by reason of insanity, is that right? The trouble is that Carter has never had to spend a New York Minute in a mental hospital unlike Hinckley or some other whack jobs that I could name.

    Reblogged this on Catholic Glasses and commented:
    Good to know this info about Carter. Glad Reagan stopped his insanities.

    Isn’t there a very fine line between lying and stupid?

    I think Carter is in earnest. He just isn’t any smarter and hasn’t learned a thing since he was POTUS. The economy under Carter stunk because he was always a big government socialists that had no idea how it works. I wish I could say the same about the malicious socialist that is in the WH now.

      What was wrong with double digit stagflation?

        The same thing that was wrong with gas lines around the block all the time. And that during the time when I owned a 1972 Nova with a bored and stroked, 396 rated at 410 hp. Hurst 4 on the floor with rock crusher heavy duty transmission and Craigers all around with 70 series tires on the rear. That car was going sideways about as often as it was going straight down the road when it wasn’t sitting waiting for gas, which was a good bit of the time.

          Yep, thinking back is was kinda like some version of a desparately manic-depressive ‘Happy Days’.
          But really Carter administration was the best trailing edge talent available, what could have been expected?
          Away talk to youngsters about it now, and they just don’t believe you.

          First rule of rewriting history – wait to those who lived it are dead. I had a clown try to tell me that experiences I had during the Vietnam war never occurred.

        • rah says:

          You know. They can deny the history of Carters failure but there is hard evidence from the times they can’t. The cars. The history of what happened as he failed to fund the military and then when he needed them we got Desert One. That history is preserved and will be remembered for multiple generations. Back in the late 90s while I was an instructor at SOMED the urinals had Jane Fonda stickers in them. The one with her image with the red circle and slash. The Army and I suspect the other services have an unofficial institutional memory that preserves the history about some things for generations. I believe Jane Fonda will be remembered with disgust by those that wear the uniform long after the Vietnam veteran was dead. And at least in Special Ops, Carter will too.

    My condolences to your previous position. Mr. peanut head is not a resume builder.

    Jimmy Carter suffers from AGI, anthropological global insanity induced by unreported CHAOS and FEAR in late August 1945 when Stalin’s troops captured Japan’s atomic bomb production facility at Konan, Korea.

    Today Stalin is laughing in his grave. As Stalin publicly predicted in a UN speech (as I recall), “we will bury you!”

  8. Gamecock says:

    “advocated for conservation before scientists began to understand the impact of human activity on climate”

    Stokols’ implication is they now have BEGUN to understand, which is an exaggeration.

    Note that the conservation meme preceded the MMGW meme. A major thrust of the MMGW crowd is conservation. Coincidence? Of course not.

    I had started to have respect for JC , lately he has had more than one comment which have diminished that greatly.

    Ah, yes, the Department of No Energy and the Department of No Education. The President whose CDC & HEW Secretary let HIV/AIDS loose by not closing certain points of transmission and quarantining the transmitters. Am I the only one who remembers Typhoid Mary?
