Sheriff Joe Releases His Silly ‘Climate Change’ Plan

On one hand, it is not as nuts as the plans of other Democrats running for President. But, it’s like comparing a category 4 hurricane to a category 5 one: you’re probably not going to notice that the damage is slightly less with the category 4. It’s certainly not centrist. But, I will give him this: it is very long and detailed

Let’s take a look, shall we?

Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face. It powerfully captures two basic truths, which are at the core of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected.

Would this be the same GND that the Democrat controlled House refuses to vote on, and that Democrats in the Senate voted “present” on? That GND? I suppose that part is just meant to pander to the unhinged base.

The Biden Plan will:

Ensure the U.S. achieves a 100% clean energy economy and reaches net-zero emissions no later than 2050.

Good luck with that. Nice pipe dream

The Biden plan will make a historic investment in our clean energy future and environmental justice, paid for by rolling back the Trump tax incentives that enrich corporations at the expense of American jobs and the environment.

Why does every left wing pipe dream include the word “justice”? Anyhow, tax the rich, blah blah blah.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation – the fastest growing source of U.S. climate pollution – by preserving and implementing the existing Clean Air Act, and developing rigorous new fuel economy standards aimed at ensuring 100% of new sales for light- and medium-duty vehicles will be electrified and annual improvements for heavy duty vehicles.

So, things that do not already exist will be required to exist with a magic wand.

Requiring public companies to disclose climate risks and the greenhouse gas emissions in their operations and supply chains.

Those costs will be passed on to you.

Target airline emissions

Flight costs will go up up up

Improving the energy efficiency of our buildings

Cost of housing goes up

Mitigating the climate impact of urban sprawl. Housing policy can be used as a tool to battle climate change and expand the middle class. Many lower- and middle-income Americans are forced to live far away from job centers due to high housing costs, leading not only to workers being overburdened by long commutes, but also to higher emissions associated with increased traffic and extra-long commuting times. Altering local regulations to eliminate sprawl and allow for denser, more affordable housing near public transit would cut commute times for many of the country’s workers while decreasing their carbon footprint.

Forcing people into denser, city like structures. So, choice and freedom are things Joe doesn’t believe in.

Spark the second great railroad revolution.

Back to the 1900’s.

Convene a climate world summit to directly engage the leaders of the major carbon-emitting nations of the world to persuade them to join the United States in making more ambitious national pledges, above and beyond the commitments they have already made.

Right, like we don’t already have a yearly meeting in exotic vacation spots.

Anyhow, it keeps going and going and going, and even delves into the canard of ‘climate change’ hurting “minorities” more than anyone else, climate justice, spend money, control everything from Washington. AOC panned Joe’s plan, though

Biden’s plan, released Wednesday morning, calls for fossil fuels to be eliminated by 2050, after spending $1.7 trillion in federal funds and $5 trillion in state, local, and private funds. The former vice president also called for building “small modular nuclear reactors at half the construction cost of today’s reactors” to help replace fossil fuel energy.

But 2050 is too late, Ocasio-Cortez said, according to The Hill. “Scientifically, anything that is less than helping us cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 is going to be too late,” she reportedly said.

“It’s a start, and I think that what that has shown is a dramatic shift in the right direction, but we need to keep pushing for a plan that is at the scale of the problem.”

She prefers Excitable Jay Inslee’s plan. And she still won’t demand a vote on her on Green New Deal.

The only bright spot in Joe’s plan is that he allows for nuclear power, which most of the others do not.

    Seems like the easiest path to achieve those goals would be to limit the population. And since the USA has a naturally declining population, this wouldn’t take much work. All we have to do is stop letting in fecund immigrants. Smaller populations take fewer airplane trips, need less housing, use less heating oil in the winter, and create far less pollution. But Democrats aren’t interested in results. They don’t want an omelette, they just like breaking the eggs.

  2. Professor Hale says:

    Modular reactors. 1/4 the capacity at half the cost. What a bargain.

    When they develop an electric car that will go 400+ miles on a single charge and can be fully charged in less than 15 minutes, I’ll buy one.

    “We’re in a climate emergency..”. What’s the emergency?

    • david7134 says:

      Don’t you realize that unless we intact a tax on carbon that we are going to die in 12 years?? AOC said so, and that makes it fact. So we must hurry and destroy or world to save it.
