Handsy Joe Has A ‘Climate Change’ Fever Which Can Be Fixed With $2 Trillion

One has to wonder how much of this is driven by the kooky left and their climate cult beliefs. His previous plans were bad, but, not completely climanutso. He looks like he’s pandering to the kooks

Biden Announces $2 Trillion Climate Plan
Mr. Biden’s plan links tackling climate change with economic recovery from the coronavirus and addressing racism, drawing praise from onetime critics.

The subhead rather reinforces the pandering

Joseph R. Biden Jr. announced on Tuesday a new plan to spend $2 trillion over four years to significantly escalate the use of clean energy in the transportation, electricity and building sectors, part of a suite of sweeping proposals designed to create economic opportunities and build infrastructure while also tackling climate change.

It’s cute how they use his full name, eh?

In a speech in Wilmington, Del., Mr. Biden built on his plans, released last week, for reviving the economy in the wake of the coronavirus crisis, with a new focus on enhancing the nation’s infrastructure and emphasizing the importance of putting the United States on a path to significantly cut fossil fuel emissions.

“These are the most critical investments we can make for the long-term health and vitality of both the American economy and the physical health and safety of the American people,” he said, repeatedly criticizing President Trump’s leadership on issues including climate and the pandemic. “When Donald Trump thinks about climate change, the only word he can muster is ‘hoax.’ When I think about climate change, the word I think of is ‘jobs.’”

Just wondering if any reporters asked him tough questions, such as “you tried this once already while Obama was your boss, and it failed. Vast sums of money were wasted, such as with Solyndra and all the fake weatherizing. You were supposed to be in charge of watching the program. How will it be different this time? As VP you were part of the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.” And “how many letters are in the word “jobs””?

“This is not a status quo plan,” said Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, a prominent environmentalist who ran for the Democratic presidential nomination on a platform of combating climate change and later endorsed Mr. Biden.

Remember that Jay flamed out early, and not even the Progressives in Washington wanted his climate plans.

Mr. Biden’s plan outlines specific and aggressive targets, including achieving an emissions-free power sector by 2035 and upgrading four million buildings over four years to meet the highest standards for energy efficiency. The plan also calls for establishing an office of environmental and climate justice at the Justice Department and developing a broad set of tools to address how “environmental policy decisions of the past have failed communities of color.”

First, there’s no way to have emissions free power in 15 years, unless people are just not going to have power. Upgrading buildings? Failed during the Stimulus. Will he Require those buildings meet those standards? As for the last, this isn’t really about the climate, is it.

Environmental justice, a movement that tries to address pollution and other toxic harms that disproportionately affect communities of color, plays a key role in the plan. In it, Mr. Biden set a goal for disadvantaged communities to receive 40 percent of all clean energy and infrastructure benefits. He also made explicit references to tribal communities and called for expanding broadband access to tribal lands.

What was Joe doing during the last 40+ years as an elected official? As for broadband, that has what to do with ‘climate change’?

Paying for it, campaign officials said, will come from a mix of increasing the corporate income tax rate from 21 to 28 percent, “asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share” and some still-undetermined amount of stimulus dollars. Campaign officials added that more details would be released “in the weeks ahead.”

Well, good luck with that. The rich people’s money never seems to appear, because they move it. Perhaps Joe could hit up his rich Hollywood and tech buddies. Surely they will have no problem paying a high tax rate.

    $2 trillion? That’s a bargain compared to another 4 years of tRump’s flailures!

    Rather than policy proposals, why doesn’t Biden just send out vile and stupid tweets like tRump.

    tRump has sent that much to the rich since February! Plus $1.5 trillion with his ill-advised tax cuts for the rich.

    tRump spends taxpayer dollars to 1) enrich himself and his spawn, 2) reward rich buddies, 3) repair damage that he caused or exacerbated.

      Building the wall, stopping the illegals, saving the economy twice, bringing the troops home from Zippy’s endless wars.

      Because his mind is too far gone?

      You mean like Bobby DeNiro?

      He has? Prove it.

      Tax cuts for almost everybody, J, but you knew that. But it must be more fun to endlessly repeat a liberal mantra with no meaning

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Mostly for the rich, J, but you knew that.

        And what did we get for that $1.5 trillion cut in revenues? And the trillions for the already rich and expanded unemployment payments keeps us at the status quo at best. And it’s only going to get worse. It’s unclear when we will be able to get back to rebuilding America. We’ve spent decades of rewarding the wealthy without investing in either our physical nation or our human capital, and it’s all coming apart.

        Do we have the political will to do this? We’ll see.

          No, he didn’t because it’s a lie. The class warfare thing is dead.

          Get better writers.

          Revenues go up with tax cuts. Ask the IRS.

          We’re already doing infra, but, if the Demos keep burning down their cities, we’re juast going to let you live with it.

          How’s that for budget cutting?

          And your idea of investing in our human capital has been tried for 50 years.

          Big flop.

          Do we have the political will to do this? We’ll see.

          We’re smarter now. All your Uncle Saul mind games won’t work anymore.

    Our esteemed host quoted:

    upgrading four million buildings over four years to meet the highest standards for energy efficiency.

    There are more than one million buildings in New York City alone, so apparently the former Vice President is going to rebuild an entire New York City every single year for four years!

    What’s he going to do? Order new, triple-paned energy efficient windows to replace all of the wavy, antique glass in all of those brownstones? Good luck with the NYC Landmarks Preservation Committee, which has to approve every change the façades of historic buildings.

    He’s going to go into every older building in the Big Apple and make sure that they are all properly insulated?

    And, of course, there’s how buildings are heated. Natural gas and fuel oil are the two most efficient common heating sources, but Mr Biden wants to get rid of those, doesn’t he? Where does he plan on putting all of those electric heat pumps, which have to be outside of buildings? And when it gets down to 0º F, not that uncommon an occurrence in the northeast, well, you don’t really want to depend on just a heat pump to keep you warm.

    Mr Biden and the left are just throwing out wild numbers, because that’s what they do. Those numbers have no relation to reality at all.

    Meanwhile in keeping with the theme of 2020 “total crazy”, a black lives matter proponent went through a plane threatening to kill everyone if they did not say Jesus was black.

    https://youtu.be/SLwx7XqxiDk

    Amazingly, the Seattle Times managed to present this story without mentioning the maniac’s demand that other passengers believe in a black Jesus, which appears to be the whole point of his outburst. Not satisfied to bury the lead, they excluded it completely, reporting that he was threatening to kill them “in the name of Jesus.” The spin: Christians are dangerous lunatics.

    Yet again we see that the “mainstream” liberal media is not a reliable source of information. Under the leftist cabal that seems to be running things today the news media has actually become dangerous.
