Chad’s Morning Brief: Al Gore Wants the World to Spend $90 Trillion Dollars to Redo Cities, Mike Huckabee Wants States to Oppose the Supreme Court
Here is your Morning Brief for January 23, 2015.
Redesigning Cities Without Cars
Al Gore is again talking Climate Change and at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland he and others are kicking around the idea of redesigning every city in the world... yes in the world so that cars won't be needed. According to Business Insider, the plan would only cost $90 Trillion dollars.
It turns out the $90 trillion is the total of infrastructure investment that is likely to be spent anyway building and upgrading cities. Gore and Calderon are arguing that it be spent more wisely, to produce cities that don't encourage people to burn fossil fuels just to get from A to B.
The key will be to persuade the mayors — again, all the mayors on earth — that designing new cities this way will be vastly preferable to the old way, in terms of efficiency and prosperity for their residents. "The mistake we made in Mexico was to let cities develop however they want, and it's a mess," Calderon told Business Insider. It's in the mayors' "best interests" not to repeat that "mistake," Calderon said.
You have got to read the entire article. What is scary about this is that many people on the left love this type of thinking. By the way, has Al Gore given up his mansion, plane, and cars yet?
Mike Huckabee Wants States to Ignore the Supreme Court
Mike Huckabee, who is probably running for President, wants states to resist the Supreme Court. No, not on Obamacare, but on gay marriage according to the USA Today.
"Rather than just immediately capitulate to nine people in robes, and what it will probably be is five people in robes against four people who disagree ... then you have a very, very divided court," he told the weekly newsmaker series. "Do we really surrender the entire American system of government to five people, unelected, appointed for life, with no consequences for the decisions they make? The founders never intended for there to be such incredible, almost unlimited power, put in the hands of so few people."
Mike Huckabee just now wants states to resist the Supreme Court? And over gay marriage? There may be some on the right that will buy into Mike Huckabee and they will eat this up. At the end of the day, the Supreme Court will have the final say on gay marriage. If you want to pick a fight with the Supreme Court over just how much power they have, there have been other issues before gay marriage that should have been brought up.
