Warmists Slip Climate Change (scam) Legislation Into COVID Relief Bill

Some Republican should have slipped in some of their own, such as restricting Congressional Believers in anthropogenic climate change from using government fossil fueled vehicles, flying on government fossil fueled planes, and no reimbursements for fossil fuels used for their official business

Climate Change Legislation Included in Coronavirus Relief Deal

Congressional negotiators inserted a bipartisan measure to curtail planet-warming chemicals used in air-conditioners and refrigerators in the huge government spending and coronavirus relief package that is expected to head to President Trump’s desk on Monday.

The legislation would be the first significant climate change law to pass Congress since at least 2009.

Also riding on the larger package is a separate bill to promote renewable energy by directing about $35 billion in existing government spending toward the development of wind, solar and other clean energy sources over the next five years.

Both bills are backed by some of the Senate’s most powerful Republicans, creating a rare party rebuke to President Trump on the issue of global warming, after he has spent the past four years mocking and systematically rolling back every major climate change rule.

Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader, called the bill to reduce planet-warming chemicals “the single biggest victory in the fight against climate change to pass this body in a decade.”

First, there’s no proof that Republicans are even aware of these measures. Second, Chuck had his chance in 2009, but, instead decided to do Obamacare. Third, there really are no good alternatives to the refrigerants (mostly HFCs are used now) used in refrigerators and AC units at this time. Most are experimental, and very expensive, up to 10 times the cost. So, that should seriously jack up the price of AC units and fridges. And the new refrigerants can also be dangerous. And, it would also mess with chemicals used in other products, like fire extinguishers.

Now, if they want to use the $35 billion for R&D, I’m good with that. It would have been much better for all that money in Obama’s Stimulus to be used for R&D rather than actual construction. Would have been nicer to use that $35 billion for citizens and small businesses, though.

Oh, and when does the NY Times replace all their AC units and refrigerators to be compliant?

    I wish they said which chemicals will be price gouged so I can stock up now.

    Teach do you think that those things you wanted them to “slip in” would be legal or even close to legal? I sure don’t ?
    Well certainly your chosen one Trump won’t sign a bad bill into law ?

    Last time the Obama administration blew $150 billion of taxpayer money on bullshit like this.

    Teach typed: First, there’s no proof that Republicans are even aware of these measures.

    In the article cited, denialist Senator John Barasso (R-WY) and Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) praised the bill.

    Senator John Barrasso, Republican of Wyoming and a leading opponent of most climate change policies, also celebrated: “This agreement protects both American consumers and American businesses,” he said. “We can have clean air without damaging our economy.”

    Senator John Kennedy, Republican of Louisiana. Mr. Kennedy’s state is home to hundreds of chemical manufacturing facilities; he framed the bill as a job creator for those companies. “To create thousands of jobs, save billions of dollars and safeguard the environment, we must invest in alternatives to HFCs,” he said.

    Will Russia Don sign the bill? Does this make him a communist?

    AG Bill Barr rebuked Russia Don, again saying they found no evidence of fraud. Even FOX and Newsmax had to walk back their accusations against Dominion and Smartmatic. I guess those companies have better lawyers than Russia Don.

    Coronavirus Package Allows Feds to Import More Foreign Workers as 17.8M Americans are Jobless

    A spending bill, labeled as a relief package for Americans during the Chinese coronavirus crisis, will allow federal bureaucrats to import more foreign workers to take blue-collar jobs in the United States – even as 17.8 million Americans remain jobless.

    A provision slipped into the more than 5,590-page spending bill allows the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Labor Department to import more foreign labor competition against Americans at their discretion.

    Specifically, the bill gives DHS the ability to “increase the total number” of H-2B foreign visa workers who can be brought into the U.S. to take blue-collar, nonagricultural jobs that would otherwise go to working class Americans.

    When comparing the wages of H-2B foreign workers to the national wage average for each blue-collar industry, about 21 out of 25 of the industries offered lower wages to foreign workers than Americans.

    In the construction industry, wage suppression is significant, with H-2B foreign workers being offered more than 20 percent less than their American counterparts. In the fishing industry, foreign workers were offered more than 30 percent less for their jobs than Americans in the field. In the meatpacking industry, foreign workers got 23 percent less pay than Americans.

    Hey, here’s your $600–take it and shut up. Fake elections, fake relief. Go figure.

    Teach if a small ac unit costs 200$ how much do you think a new refrigerant will increase the cost ?
    Remember the carbon footprint of a fossil fueled airplane ticket would only increase the ticket price by about 2%
    More like bottle rocket than a skyrocket

    The Dems only control the House
    The GOP control the Senate and the White House
    But let’s blame the Dems
