David Ismay, an attorney and former senior official of the Massachusetts governor’s administration, is not, I assume, a well-known name in Vermont. However, he should be.
A high-ranking Massachusetts climate change official has resigned after he was caught on a January 25 video advising the Vermont Climate Council it must ‘turn the screws” on elderly fixed-income citizens and “break their will” in order to meet climate change mandates.
Ismay’s said, “So let me say that again, 60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person across the street, the senior on fixed income, right… there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts to point the finger at, to turn the screws on, and you know, to break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will. Right, I can’t even say that publicly….”
At the January 25 Vermont Climate Council meeting, members can be seen nodding their heads in apparent agreement as the Massachusetts climate czar tells them his plans to “turn the screws” on ordinary people, including senior citizens on fixed incomes, and “break their will.”
The Vermont Climate Council has met just three times, but already concerns have surfaced about white supremacy and conflict of interest.
