Bummer: China Joe Climate (scam) Agenda Hangs In Balance

Perhaps Surrender Joe could simply put the climate scam stuff in another bill, vote for it on it’s own merits, rather than sticking it in a massive, highly partisan piece of legislation that even has a few Democrats bowing out? Perhaps Joe, his people, and the elected Democrats could show the way and practice what they preach?

Biden’s climate change agenda hangs in balance as Congress debates budget

If Congress passes President Biden’s ambitious plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, he will go down in history as the nation’s first leader to usher in a transformative climate change agenda. But with the scope of the federal budget in limbo, should those measures be cut from the final package, the U.S. will, once again, come up short on helping to avert climate change catastrophe, according to environmentalists.

“The urgency couldn’t be greater,” Matthew H. Davis, senior director of government affairs at the League of Conservation Voters, told Yahoo News. “We need to get our emissions cuts on track to go down by 50 percent by the end of this decade or we will see more summers like this one, in which 1 in 3 Americans experienced a climate-related natural disaster.”

No one is stopping you or the rest of the Warmists. Have at it. Give up your own use of fossil fuels and all the other stuff. If it does pass, Joe will go down in history as the president who cratered the economy, destroyed the energy sector, instituted the biggest increase in federal government power in over a decade, and possibly split apart the Union. Because Republican states will not comply.

While its ultimate fate is unclear, the president’s Build Back Better agenda contains a variety of measures to limit greenhouse gas emissions and move the national economy away from a reliance on fossil fuels. The most significant, in terms of limiting climate change, include the clean electricity performance program, which would reward utility companies for shifting rapidly to renewable energy sources such as solar and wind and penalize them for failing to do so. It would also incentivize the purchase of electric vehicles, put a fee on leaking methane in oil and gas production and give tax breaks for boosting clean electricity production. Failure to sign on to any of those options would likely cause the U.S. to fall short of Biden’s emissions reduction target, according to modeling by a coalition of environmental advocacy organizations and think tanks.

Biden’s goals. Not the goals of the citizens. Let him do something in his own life. He could have taken the train from D.C. to NYC to attend the United Nations meeting, but, instead, took a fossil fueled jumbo jet then flew back, and that trip included a backup jet, multiple fighter jets, helicopter rides, and huge convoys of fossil fueled vehicles, along with a jet which brought his fossil fueled limo.

“Low-cost clean energy and American-made electric cars and trucks are coming off the assembly line,” said Rep. Kathy Castor, D-Fla., who chairs the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.

How many members of Congress drive one, and have sold all their fossil fueled vehicles?

In theory, not every policy to address climate change needs to be crammed into a budget bill. However, because congressional Republicans won’t provide any votes for climate action and Senate Republicans now filibuster every significant bill they don’t support, efforts to transition the nation to renewable energy can realistically pass only as part of the budget reconciliation process, in which Democrats can legislate with a simple majority.

It must not be a very popular agenda if they cannot pass this stuff on its own, eh? It’s supposed to be very hard to pass big legislation.

“The Biden-Harris administration and Congress are lining up to do something transformational on climate change,” Davis said. “We believe that negotiations have been positive in the past few days, and we look forward to continuing to highlight for members of Congress and members of the Biden-Harris administration just how important these policies are and just how much the public supports them.”

Transformation is supposed to be extremely hard, and what the Constitution is set up to avoid at a federal level.

    Except that cannot be proven.
    It’s a baseless claim.

    Well, they did that with the funding for Israel’s Iron Dome system, because with that in the big bill, the defection of the squadristi would have killed it. Then, in a separate bill that made Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez cry, it was passed with huge bipartisan support.

    But that’s what both parties have done over the past thirty years or so: festooned all sorts of unrelated things into huge bills that just had to be passed. Fortunately, it seems as though Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) aren’t willing to go along, and the bill could be killed in the Senate.

    I am wryly amused.
