Climate Activists Pressure Biden To Force Other People To Fight ‘Climate Change’

Interestingly, none of them are telling Biden to reduce his own carbon footprint (he’s flying up to Boston, then flying back to spend the weekend at Camp David today), nor mentioning what they are doing in their own lives

Activists pressure Biden to quickly issue new executive actions to fight climate change

Climate change activists and experts are calling on the Biden administration to swiftly deploy a series of executive actions to speed up the transition away from fossil fuels now that Republicans are set to retake control of the House of Representatives, effectively blocking new climate legislation from being passed.

Through its regulatory authority under laws such as the Clean Air Act, the executive branch has considerable leeway to affect U.S. energy policy, but some critics say the administration has been too slow to roll out new pollution regulations concerning the burning of fossil fuels. They warn that if the Biden administration doesn’t pick up the pace right away, too few rules will be finalized before the end of the president’s term in office.

If the next president is a Republican, rules that haven’t been finalized are likely to be withdrawn, as President Donald Trump did with limits on carbon dioxide pollution from power plants that were proposed under his predecessor, President Barack Obama. And the Congressional Review Act gives Congress up to six months after a rule has been finalized to overturn it, meaning that if Republicans win control of the Senate and the White House in 2024, they could reverse rules put in place at the end of Biden’s term, just as they did to 14 Obama-era environmental regulations in 2017.

Therein lies a big problem: Congress has ceded too much power to the Executive Branch, and this is a bipartisan problem. That said, Democrat presidents, their appointed staffs, and all the leftists in the bureaucracies are more than willing to stretch that power. It’s much better when Congress passes specific, targeted legislation, which usually has to be agreed on by both parties, rather than forcing all sorts of things on everyone at the federal level. And a lot of this power belongs in the hands of the States, not the federal government.

“Climate change does not get solved by passing one law,” Stokes added, in reference to the Inflation Reduction Act, which will distribute $369 billion in subsidies for clean energy and electric vehicles over 10 years. “We have to focus on making sure that President Biden delivers on his campaign promises and acts with strong executive action in all areas. The Biden administration has been doing a really good job in some ways, but they’ve been holding back on executive action.”

See, on the flip side, these same people will caterwaul if a Republican president kills off these actions. What’s good for the goose is not good for the gander in Climate Cult World.

But the administration hasn’t been as active when it comes to writing new regulations on pollution from fossil fuels. Evergreen Action released a report card in October that found the EPA is falling behind its own deadlines on regulating pollution from power plants. Of the 10 possible regulations it examined — including rules limiting carbon dioxide emissions, updated mercury and air toxics standards and tighter limits on smog, soot and coal ash — Evergreen found that eight had either been delayed or no action had been taken at all.

“The EPA must move further and faster,” Evergreen Action executive director Jamal Raad told Yahoo News.

These same people will lose their minds when their power bills skyrocket (more) and they’re subject to blackouts and brownouts. How about they just practice what they preach in their own lives, and leave the rest of us the F*** alone. It’s a very long article, which never does ask “what are they doing in their own lives? Why is Biden taking so many fossil fueled trips?”

    ANOTHER CONSPIRACY THEORY: The nationwide shortage of basic antibiotics and critical medications that treat chronic conditions and bacterial infections has become the latest issue to hit the medical world. Consequently, it is forcing many doctors to rely on alternative medicines to treat patients.

    However, Glatter said that the problem is in part because the U.S. is currently facing challenges in obtaining raw materials. For instance, source materials for manufacturing the active pharmaceutical ingredients in the majority of drugs come from China, which is dealing with limited production and output of raw materials involved in pharmaceutical manufacturing due to rigid lockdown measures, Glatter said. 

    The U.S. is also dependent on India for a significant number of generic medications, but India also relies on China for the raw materials used to produce active pharmaceutical ingredients, he added.

    Great job on that supply chain their Biden. I mean Klaus Schwaub or whatever his name is just gave an interview where he did not have enough PRAISE for CHINA and how they handled their economy. I guess that would include welding their citizens in their homes until they starve to death. Failure to air drop supplies to starving people and beating APPLE EMPLOYEES and locking them inside their factory because covid broke out.

    ZERO TOLERANCE….not just on covid but life. And this is the country the AGW is trying to hand the world too. Well done China. Well Done. The GREAT RESET IDOLIZES CHINA.
