Massachusetts “Climate Official” Resigns After Inflammatory Remarks Toward People Who Heat Homes and Fuel Cars

Buh-bye.

David Ismay, undersecretary for climate change in Massachusetts, resigned Thursday, effective immediately, after making inflammatory comments against people who heat their homes and fuel their cars.

Ismay had said in a virtual meeting with the Vermont Climate Council in January that average people needed to have their wills “broken” to fight the effects of climate change and achieve net-zero emissions.

I know one thing that we found in our analysis is that 60 percent of our emissions come from […] residential heating and passenger vehicles,” he said. “Let me say that again: 60 percent of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person on your street, the senior on fixed income. Right now, there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts, to point the finger at and turn the screw on and now break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”

He added that “we can’t have no offshore wind, no transmission, no solar, and have clean energy. Something has to give. There has to be some mechanism we trust to find a place to site a transmission line.” Interestingly enough, he then acknowledged that he “can’t even say that publicly,” but it was only a matter of time before his remarks made their way to the press.

Before Ismay’s resignation, Massachusetts Republican governor Charlie Baker reacted to his remarks as follows: “First of all, no one who works in our administration should ever say or think anything like that. Secondly, [Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Kathleen Theoharides] is going to have a conversation with him about that. And third, one of the main reasons we didn’t sign the climate bill when it got to our desk was because we were specifically concerned about the impact it was going to have on people’s ability to pay for many of the pieces that were in it, which means it also doesn’t represent administration policy or position.”

The Boston Herald says that Ismay’s position paid him $130,000 a year. A spokesman for MassFiscal told the Herald that his organization has “continually warned the public regarding the dangerous amount of power being handed over to unelected bureaucrats through various climate initiatives.”

In his resignation letter Ismay apologized and said he did not intend his comments to be interpreted as “placing the burden of climate change on hardworking families and vulnerable populations.” He regretted ineffectively communicating what he was trying to say and reflecting poorly on Governor Baker and the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

Michigan Republicans Demand Inquiry Into Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Murderous COVID-19 Nursing Home Policies

She is as guilty as Cuomo.

Republican lawmakers in the state of Michigan are pushing back against Governor Gretchen Whitmer for her genocidal COVID-19 policies that have resulted in the needless deaths of countless elderly individuals.

State senator Jim Runestad is leading the charge to hold Whitmer accountable in a similar manner that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is now being held accountable for implementing similarly murderous policies in his state.

“Gov. Whitmer’s regional hub policy placed patients with and without COVID-19 in the same facilities and may have exacerbated the death toll in those facilities,” said Runestad in a press release.

“Questions remain regarding the accuracy of data, compliance with CDC guidelines and compliance with our state’s Freedom of Information Act. There is a critical need for a full investigation into these matters,” he added.

Runestad believes a federal investigation is needed into Whitmer’s actions because of how her COVID-19 approach has lacked transparency.

“Michiganders understand there are many, many similarities between Gov. Whitmer’s handling of the virus and Gov. Cuomo’s: their unilateral overreach (both struck down by the courts), their allusion to vague metrics and data, their questionable vaccine distribution plans, and their outright defiance to losing their emergency powers. The alarming similarities with New York raise serious questions about what really happened in Michigan,” Runestad said.

Runestad and other Michigan Republican lawmakers have sent letters to Attorney General Dana Nessel and the Department of Justice demanding accountability, but Democrats are not likely to police their own behavior.

Big League Politics has reported on how Whitmer doubled down on her policies to murder elderly nursing home patients by housing COVID-19 sufferers next to them:

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would have protected the elderly and vulnerable by banning COVID-19 patients from being quarantined in nursing homes.

“Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” Governor Whitmer said while announcing her veto.

“Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and addressing the public health and economic crisis faced by our state. We look forward to continuing our work with stakeholders and legislators on the task force to develop real solutions that make sense for Michigan seniors and their families,” she added.

Senate Republicans are firing back at Whitmer for her cruel and callous decision to veto the common sense legislation.

“In a mean-spirited move, Gov. Whitmer announced she vetoed a plan that would have prevented COVID-19 patients from entering our nursing homes,” they wrote.

While Michigan Republicans may be putting an effort toward pushing back against Whitmer, she is not likely to be held accountable until she is up for re-election in 2022.
