In a world in which nearly every issue is polarized and politicized, if there’s one thing that’s not in dispute, it’s that Kamala Harris has a way with words.

And by “way with words,” I mean a way of saying lots of words while communicating exactly nothing.

Monday was no exception, as the vice president garbled her way through a speech on global warming meant to inspire people to support the government’s $1 billion "investment" to solve the ever-impending climate apocalypse, but really just ended up leaving people wondering, “…huh?”

Here are a few of the top most confusing moments from Harris’ speech – be prepared to bask in the wisdom.
 

1. When she said that people who work in hot environments are more affected by hot weather.

“Heat waves pose a greater threat to people who don't have air conditioning, or who work in high heat workplaces,” Harris explained.

A truly brilliant insight.


2. When she promised that our industrialized nation of 320 million people will cut our carbon emissions by a full 50% in the next 8 years, and be entirely “carbon-neutral" by the mid-century.

“Our nation will cut our greenhouse gas emissions in half by no later than 2030 and, by no later than 2050, we will reach net zero emissions. Some say that is an ambitious goal. I say it is doable,” she vowed.

Also, everyone will have a purple unicorn and the entire country will run on cotton candy and we'll all live in diamond houses.


3. This poetic mumbo-jumbo.

“While we send our prayers, and our love, we also, with each day, renew our commitment to the urgency of now and the ability that we have collectively, all of us in it together, to do something about it."

Transformative.

4. When she described “moving energy” from solar farms and wind turbines to other parts of the country.

“We can move clean energy from where it is created to where it is needed. It is literally about the transportation of energy...How exciting is that!"

……oh dear lord.


5. When she suggested floods would never happen and no one would die if we just OK Congress to spend all our money fighting climate change.


6. When – during a recession and record-high inflation that’s currently crippling Americans – she suggested we spend more money to “electrify” the entire nation’s fleet of school buses.

“We should focus on the issue on electric school buses. I was proud to introduce the first piece of legislation to electrify our nation's fleet of school buses,” she boasted.


So there you have it, folks. Words to live by, by the vice president of the United States.

If you can decipher any of them, of course.
