Joe Biden has a Big Problem

Joe Biden pushed a plan to “Buy American” but his new climate crusade is giving China a big advantage over the United States.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

President Joe Biden’s latest climate-focused executive order promises a bustling clean energy sector backed by “good-paying union jobs.” That sector’s supply chain, however, is largely dominated by China.

Issued on Wednesday, Biden’s order calls on the federal government to purchase union-built, American electric vehicles. But both Chevrolet and Nissan’s top electric offerings fall well below the federal government’s domestic “component test” to determine American-made status, and Ford’s latest electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, will be built in China and Mexico. China also controls much of the world’s lithium battery supply, including 77 percent of global cell capacity and 60 percent of global component manufacturing, a September BloombergNEF report shows.

Biden climate envoy John Kerry, meanwhile, suggested Wednesday that disgruntled oil and coal workers could simply find new jobs in the solar sector. The clean energy industry’s reliance on foreign markets and companies extends to solar energy. China controls roughly 60 percent of the industry’s total supply chain and manufactures 75 percent of the world’s polysilicon—a raw material used to make solar cells—according to research firm Wood Mackenzie.

China’s grip on clean energy means that Biden’s push for a green American economy will likely benefit the Communist nation, sparking national-security concerns among Republican lawmakers. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R., Wash.), the top Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, told the Washington Free Beacon that Biden’s “radical” climate actions will “kill jobs and increase our reliance on China.”

Experts on the matter have continually warned that this approach gives our adversaries an unfair advantage against us.

WISH ALL Air head politicians would FIND NEW JOBS and get out of D.C. for good. Sick of them running my life into the ground for their benefit. What makes them think they are any smarter than anyone else except for snow flakes who can’t decide who or what they are or which restroom to us. JFK Kerry is just another rich ass hole who thinks he is important to the rest of us. Just like his Vietnam service and his failure run for president. If sleep commie Joe can beat him out that means he is pretty sorry person. But when you steal an election anybody can get in.

Wouldn’t it be nice if politicians would investigate before closing down industries? This is shameful.

All the turds young and old that voted for this disaster, will very soon feel the pain. If I hear one more old turd tell me that he’s going to unite the country, I literally want to push their wheel chairs down a big steep hill.
The young stupid millenials get a small pass. Young and still very stupid.
Old goats, men and women alike, are just retarded and beyond STUPID!

Joe got elected, therefore he has no problems. We do have big problems and the Harris Administration could be even bigger. Democrats have been trained to follow their ‘Political Scientists’ over any cliff!

Corrupt,puppet,incompetent,incoherant,dementia,slo,joe just put china in the driver’s seat, by destroying so many American jobs. What’s wrong with the repukes, letting him get away with all these job destroying EOs, open your dam eyes, and do something before this incompetent,brain dead, idiot ruins this country. Wind and solar can’t meet the needs of the country, without gas and oil, we all die.

Biden has no responsibility for what happens in this nation. His activities are limited to going where they tell him and reading what they put on his teleprompter. His mind is not capable of more. China and a few hundred billionaires have capitalized on his compromised mental acuity.

While lithium batteries, by themselves, may not pollute . . . charging them does—unless solar panels being used to generate the electricity that charges them.

There are still coal-fired power plants being used in the U.S. and, while cleaner today than twenty years ago, they are still considered dirty. More commonly, Natural Gas is being used to generate electricity. Still, NG has a bad side effect that is worse than carbon . . . NOX. Better known as Nitrous Oxide. Not much of a trade-off.

By far the cleanest fuel source used to generate electricity is nuclear power. Yet, people are scared to death of it. The accident at Three-mile Island has done little to quash the fear. Understandably.

So far as automobiles and anything else that would otherwise use a petrloeum-based fuel goes . . . what is wrong with using Hydrogen gas?

Pity the youngsters who will never know a great American nation… the deterioration of this country began in the 60s … right out of the communist play book… Destroy the education system, slowly remove religion from school, slowly remove patriotism (allow kneeling at sports events & flag burning, as First Amendment.) At age 80, the destruction of the USA is clear…

China set Biden and the Democrats up, and they are either clueless or complicit. Either is deadly. What has been needed is what President Trump was doing, and would have largely accomplished in another four years.
