ZOMG: Biden’s Plan To Stop Climate Doom Is Running Out Of Time

In my best Andy Rooney, “have you ever noticed that they always say we’re running out of time? It makes you wonder what’s really going on”

The U.S. plan to avoid extreme climate change is running out of time

In 101 months, the United States will have achieved President Biden’s most important climate promise — or it will have fallen short. Right now it is seriously falling short, and for each month that passes, it becomes harder to succeed until at some point — perhaps very soon — it will become virtually impossible. That’s true for the United States, and also true for the planet, as nearly 200 nations strive to tackle climate change with a fast-dwindling timeline for doing so.

This is crucial context for the news late last week that Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), after months of negotiations with his fellow Democrats, is balking at new climate policies. The stated reason for Manchin’s hesitation is raging inflation, a serious concern. But there is always a reason to delay action, and time is not forgiving when it comes to the warming climate.

At the center of the Biden administration’s climate policy is a promise, made in 2021, to slash U.S. emissions by 50 to 52 percent by the end of 2030 — 101 months from this August — against what they were in 2005. Achieving this target would require a significant reshuffling of the American economy — millions of new electric cars on the road, transformations of key industries to rely more on renewable energy, and probably millions of jobs focused on making this happen.

Yeah, well, good luck, 101 months is almost 8.5 years, and Biden will be gone on January 20, 2025. The Republican president will put the kibosh on this climate insanity

The climate legislation making its way through the Senate would have sped that transition along through enhanced tax credits for renewable energy and electric vehicles, among other energy-related incentives and provisions.

Moving fast is necessary to maintain consistency with 2015’s Paris climate agreement, in which nations agreed to take significant measures to avoid the levels of global warming associated with severe climate impact. Scientists broadly agree that emissions need to be cut approximately in half by 2030 to avoid those outcomes.

Did the citizens agree? The Paris agreement was designed to avoid the US Senate, which was given authority over these kinds of things by the Constitution. But, hey, if Warmists really want this stuff, let them do it in their own lives.

    Joe Mansion ($-WV) makes millions from the WV coal industry, which has made him a multimillionaire.

    It is NOT considered a conflict of interest to regulate an industry in which one has significant financial ties!!

    Plutocracy 101.

    • Dana says:

      He doesn’t “regulate” the coal industry. He is an elected Senator who can, if he so chooses, to act with 99 other Senators to pass laws which can affect the coal industry.

      Of course, Senator Manchin was elected by the people of the Mountain State to do exactly what he is doing. I do find it amusing, however, that the day after all of the liberal bigwigs, such as Robert Reich — though perhaps it’s not exactly accurate to refer to him as a big wig — were piling on Mr Manchin, the socialist from St Louis started doing so as well. Finally received your talking points memo from the DNC, did you?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        As Senator Mansion demonstrates time and again, one vote can make a difference.

        This is hardly the first time here that we’ve criticized the good Senator from WV, one of our favorite states. Perhaps the KY Kleagle didn’t hear of the DINO Senator’s position on the budget reconciliation bill.

        Mx KKK from Kentucky seems to toe the RNC line more and more aggressively with each pissing day.

          Someone tell Rimjob the lies and the class warfare just ain’t working no more (and they never really have).

          Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

            I do find it amusing (and embarrassing) for Dowd to keep on keepin on the class warfare even after all the “prominent” demoleftists have admitted to waging class war since “Russia, Russia, Russia”.

            This explains the left in America and should also point out the need to eradicate the bastards: https://www.takimag.com/article/the-opposite-rule/

          So you fault the gentleman for making money on investments. Remember, no all of us can lose big on our investments as you do.

        • Kye says:

          I see Mx Dowd is still the blog PUKE. Man has no morals and even less class.

          Anyway you animal, I’m on target for a half million $$ income this year so I thank you and that rapist/child molester Pedo you love so much. I guess to a leftist like you if ya can’t murder the kids through abortion the next best thing is to groom them into fagism and anal rape by the biden’s and their Rainbow followers.

          Oh, we also now control about $20M in real estate that you commies bought us. We also just signed up for a $21 million grant from some Soros outfit created to “help” illegals. Thank you very muck Max Dowd.

          Good luck to you in the coming Republican/Conservative ass whippin you’re about to get.

        • Dana says:

          It’s true: the Distinguished Gentleman from West Virginia has voted the way President Biden would have liked in far too many instances. Fortunately, he’s holding the line on the filibuster, something the Democrats may well be glad he did come November 9th.

          The left seem to believe that, because Mr Manchin is a Democrat, he owes his allegiance to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the batguano-crazy side of the Democratic Party, rather than to the voters of the Mountain State, the ones who gave 69.68% of their votes to President Trump, and the ones who firmly rejected the candidacy of a ‘progressive’ during the 2018 senatorial primary.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Apparently according to democommies like Nazi Pelosi(N-CA) it is fine to dabble in insider trading and all that good stuff. So why would you expect a democrat like Mansion to be the exception?????? All democommies are thieves, liars and crooks. Should we go through the list starting with the biden crime family (C-all over)? When democommies aren’t supporting prenatal genocide, handing out money in ghettos to keep the black body count high in blue cities (up 150% since Pedo was installed) and keeping the borders wide open so hundreds of thousands of Americans can die of fentanyl poisoning they are trying to find new ways to take away our rights (gun rights, state rights, property rights) and invent new rights for the feds (abortion, gay marriage, a two tier legal system).

      Dems need to be eliminated before they eliminate America.

    I noticed the graph from The Washington Post that was included in our distinguished host’s article. It shows a steep decline in 2020, due to the ridiculous and wholly unnecessary shutdowns due to the COVID-19 panicdemic — and no, I did not misspell that — with a projected rise for 2021 and 2022. It shows “President Biden’s Pledge” as a line angled down from 2020, but 2021 and half of 2022 have already passed.

    This shows us what the Post did: they didn’t actually examine the proposals, or were not given any indication as to how the proposals would accomplish the goal, but simply drew a line between the end of 2020 and Mr Biden’s political pledge.

    Translation: it’s pure bovine feces.
