Unsurprisingly, Biden’s Being Influenced By “Green” Group With Deep Ties To China

This would be the same China which makes a lot of promises to Do Something about anthropogenic climate change, and then builds a whole bunch of coal power plants

Green group influencing Biden admin has deep ties to Chinese government

China Votes BidenThe Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a major U.S. green group that has influenced Biden administration policymaking, has deep ties to the Chinese government.

The NRDC, a non-profit organization based in New York City with total assets exceeding $450 million, has worked on climate issues extensively in China since the mid-1990s and several of its top officials have worked for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) or government-sponsored institutions.

The NRDC also maintains a close working relationship with President Biden’s administration. The NRDC’s former president, Gina McCarthy, served as Biden’s climate czar up from January 2021 until earlier this month. Current president, Manish Bapna, has attended at least two White House meetings, visitor logs reviewed by Fox News Digital show.

The NRDC regularly communicates with Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry’s office on policy issues, according to internal State Department emails obtained by the watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust and shared with Fox News Digital.

On its website, the NRDC highlights its collaboration with a “wide range of Chinese and international partners” to boost green policies and “fortify” environmental regulations in the country.

None of this helps you. None of this helps reduce your own cost of energy. California politicians have long been swayed by the NRDC, and look how well their energy grid is working, at the cost of their energy, over the brownouts and blackouts, over being told “don’t use appliances or charge your EV at night.”

The NRDC, though, rarely condemns the communist government in China despite the nation’s massive world-leading carbon footprint and its commitment to fossil fuel energy. China accounts for about 27% of total global emissions — nearly tripling the total in the U.S., the world’s second-largest emitter, according to Rhodium Group — and continues to approve and construct a large amount of coal power plants.

The NRDC also regularly has published blog posts commending China for its climate actions.

“China’s leaders are sending a clear signal that China’s shift from fossil fuels to clean energy is accelerating and that ‘new energy’ should be the basis for China’s future energy system, rather than fossil fuels,” NRDC senior adviser Alvin Lin wrote in 2021.

And they have a lot of people who worked in China, who were part of the Chinese government, and just continuously support China and their goals

Through its legal efforts, the NRDC has opposed domestic oil and gas drilling programs, coal plants, the Keystone XL pipeline and critical mineral mining projects.

The group bragged in December 2019 after it had filed its 100th lawsuit against the Trump administration.

And they’re still filing lawsuits, all of which reduce the availability of affordable, dependable energy. They’ve even been part of lawsuits blocking “green” energy, such as in deserts, along with transmission lines.

“For the enviros, it’s really all about power,” H. Sterling Burnett, the director of the Heartland Institute’s Center on Climate and Environmental Policy, told Fox News Digital in an interview. “It’s not about greenhouse gas emissions, is it? Well, if it was, they’d be talking about China all the time, non-stop. They’re not.”

“Why is NRDC not attacking China?” he continued. “First off, they know that China can just kick them out. Secondly, it’s hard to bite the hand that feeds you. If you’re being paid not to criticize somebody, then you don’t need to criticize them.”

Meanwhile, they’re suing the Brandon admin on one hand, while advising them on the other.

    This would be the same China which makes a lot of promises to Do Something about anthropogenic climate change, and then builds a whole bunch of coal power plants?

    It would be a huge improvement if they just stopped throwing their trash in the rivers and overfishing the oceans.

    That would be the same “China” Joe Biden who sent Gangster Pelosi right into China’s hood on a fly by?
    The same one that showed off our military by having the US Navy carooooze down the Taiwan straits?
    The same China Joe that came right out and said we would defend Taiwan with our military?
    That is the China Joe who is bending over for the Chinese? The same one who showed off our military technology in Ukraine and badly burned the Russian
    China is a paper dragon. That is falling apart internally it can barely feed itself

      That would be the same pedo who is taunting both Russia and China into a nuclear exchange. Yes, that’s the same dopey ass. Why? Do you think it’s good politics or smart diplomacy to taunt a nuclear adversary? I don’t. But I’m not a fake president either.
