David Ismay, the Baker administration’s $130,000-a-year climate change undersecretary, has resigned “immediately,” citing his incendiary comments.

In his resignation letter, Ismay wrote: “It is with great regret that I submit my resignation, effectively immediately, from the position of Undersecretary for Climate Change in the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.”

The resignation letter is addressed to his boss, Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Kathleen Theoharides. He emailed a copy to the Herald Thursday morning from his private hotmail account.

The following is a video of David Ismay making his controversial remarks to the Vermont Climate Council.

I encourage you to click the youtube link to view the original, but given ongoing big tech censorship there is a chance it will disappear. Note this copy of the video has been cropped, to just show David Ismay’s face.

What is the point of a carbon tax or restrictions on oil and gas drilling, other than to “break the will” of businesses and consumers? Perhaps David Ismay is just being a little more honest than other climate activists, officials and politicians.

All climate activists have to offer people is coercion and poverty; if they had something better to offer, there would be no need for carbon fees and taxes, government expenditure, climate lockdowns, oil pipeline shutdowns, and punishment for non-compliance. People would eagerly embrace green solutions of their own free will.
