Biden has to do These Two Things to Meet His Green Energy Pledge

Joe Biden has to do two uncomfortable things to meet his green energy pledge.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

President Joe Biden would need to implement a massive tax on emissions and conduct a near elimination of natural gas to meet his climate goals, according to left-leaning environmental experts.

Biden will join world leaders at the United Nations’ climate change conference in November to discuss his administration’s pledge to reduce U.S. carbon emissions by 50 to 52 percent by 2030. While a White House fact sheet claims the goal will “cut … energy costs for families,” environmental experts contend Biden must enact policies that would raise taxes on everyday Americans to reach his emissions milestone.

According to Resources for the Future fellow Marc Hafstead, for example, Biden will fall short of his climate objective if he does not implement a tax hike on carbon emissions. The left-leaning World Resources Institute agrees—mitigation efforts without an emissions tax “carry significant uncertainties and fall short” of Biden’s goal, its top experts wrote in September. The University of Maryland’s Leon Clarke argues Biden would need a “near-complete phase-out” of natural gas-fired utilities and appliances.

The radical steps necessary to achieve his emissions goals—nearly half of U.S. homes use natural gas for heating—reflect the daunting political road ahead for Biden. The Democrat centered his campaign around fighting climate change but often ditched specifics for political platitudes on the campaign trail. Some environmental activists are already dismayed with Biden over what they see as an emphasis on “talking points” rather than tangible action. Should Biden lean into the “whole-of-government approach to the climate crisis” that he has promised, however, the subsequent policies could be “politically infeasible,” according to Hafstead.

This week the Congress will battle to try and get these ambitious goals passed.

Hey, Joe! Here’s a couple of things you can do to help with Globull Climate Chains agenda.

One, park those big limos you toll around in and that fleet of big SUVs that escort you.

Two, ground Air Force One. You seem to use it to go everywhere and anywhere especially home to hide in your air conditioned basement.

Yup, do what you and your ilk demand that the lowly peasants do. Get an electric car (LOL), take a big diesel bus, or WALK.

That my friend is only a very little tiny part of the needs for this green crap. How about all the electricity we need, the huge cargo ships for food and commodities, Air conditioning (everywhere) and of course the heating of homes, stores, malls, and the power needed for manufacturing etc.etc.etc. and the list could fill a hundred pages. But he could put a windmill and solar panels on air force one, use an electric smart car with a windmill, but there is a problem with that. You would need about a thousand windmills for air force one (hopefully we have wind). Maybe import the energy from you guessed it “China” but they have coal plants to produce electricity and that pollutes like crazy. Hmmm one BIG FUCK^NG PROBLEM. Therefore it will never happen.

Everyone should take all this very serious, think not that they will fail. They will destroy everything if necessary, including life, family, and anything that gets in their way. They have no respect for humanity at all. None. Their only desire is power, unlimited power. They bring destruction with them, when ever they gain power. History is full of lessons of what they have done. It only stops for awhile, when they lose their life, then a future generation will pick up their cause, and carry on for them. These are the people that embrace evil. The worst is yet to come, this is only the start, they have had this power for 9months, and look what they have already done. Shortage of products on store shelves, why work when one makes more not working then working. An invasion on our southern boarder, a humanity crisis created, by them,. no vax for them, releasing those already infected, to keep the pandemic going, a band of goat herders, and poppy growers, defeated the most powerful military in the world. Killed over 10,000 jobs within the first week of taking office, etc. It has been only nine months.

Unfortunately, hidenbiden just doesn’t get it.natural gas is the cleanest and most abundant fuel source we have, everyone uses it and needs it to survive. Someone tell this nincompoop, his solar and wind can’t produce enough energy, no matter how much there is.Without it we will freeze to death in the winter, this incompetent joker, thinks solar and wind will do the trick, he dumber than we thought, U aren’t going to have electric cars and trucks either, because they can’t be produced with out chips. This lying,corrupt,racist,sexualpervert,senile,frail,old,sockpuppet,fool, is a humiliating,incompetent,embarrassment to america and the world.

When he says the word “carbon” he means people. As in carbon footprint. Please read between the lines.

Green energy is a fallacy. Even windmills take more energy to build erect and maintain than they produce. Sometimes decent wind is nowhere to be found.
