First the Obama regime used the IRS to target conservative groups and now it looks as though they are at it again–this time, according to this story, the regime is going to use FEMA to force States into the global warming agenda. Here is more:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change.
This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn’t warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states’ access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters.
“If a state has a climate denier governor that doesn’t want to accept a plan, that would risk mitigation work not getting done because of politics,” said Becky Hammer, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council’s water program. “The governor would be increasing the risk to citizens in that state” because of his climate beliefs.
In the interest of fairness it must be stated here that FEMA will not be blocking these States from receiving relief money after a disaster, only the “disaster preparedness funds” but it is clear that this is nothing but an attempt to bully Republican governors into accepting the premise that global warming is real and is man-made.
But this is not unexpected or surprising, after all it comes on the heals of the news NASA has been “adjusting” temperatures to make it appear as if the earth is warming when it might not be, and more relevant to this story; experts who released a report which attempted to explain why the global warming models are wrong have come under personal attack for daring to question the narrative.
So this is the next logical step in the regime’s attempt to bully, bribe, and intimidate those who do not toe the official government line into falling into lockstep with this radical agenda. It will only be a matter of time, in my opinion, before FEMA takes this one step further and will begin denying States disaster relief funds for floods and earthquakes if the agency “determines” said events were caused by global warming.
