Steve Milloy: "None of what the Joe Biden green team has in store will improve the environment; it will only make your life poorer and harder."
"A green push is a political agenda. It’s not about controlling the climate. It’s about controlling you. You can see this for yourself in the prescriptive lifestyle climate activists demand: Don’t eat meat. You don’t need a car. Avoid air conditioning. Wash in cold water. Dry your clothes on a clothesline. As Al Gore asked at the end of his 2007 movie, “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Are you ready to change the way you live?” While you’re changing the way you live, China, India, and soon Africa will be emitting greenhouse gases like there’s no tomorrow to raise their national standards of living."
"A Biden administration would move to ban fracking, the oil production technology that has liberated Americans and our gas prices from the shackles of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, cartel. In no time, American drivers would be facing European-style gas prices and sweating every time Iran, Russia, or Saudi Arabia moved to threaten the global oil supply."
The New York Times recently ran an opinion column commanding readers to “Stop Using Toilet Paper.” It advocated for using something reusable or upgrading your toilet so it shoots streams of targeted water. It seems nothing environmental extremists do can be too intrusive.
Over the last few months, Baumann has surveyed voters’ attitudes on climate change for environmental and Democratic political groups, including Climate Power 2020, the League of Conservation Voters, and the Center for American Progress. What he has found is climate change has “now become a real political weapon for Democrats," he told the Washington Examiner. In fact, polls are telling Democrats they can pick up voters by pressing hard on climate change and drawing a stark contrast with Trump. Some of those, such as independents in swing states and center-right women, are voters Trump desperately needs to keep.
Steve Milloy: "If Biden wins in November, immediately following his inauguration in January, the Browner and Ocasio-Cortez agenda will emerge in open control of the Biden energy policies. U.S. energy dominance? Sorry: canceled."
"Is cancel culture coming for America’s newfound energy dominance? Recently, Virginia and North Carolina utilities threw in the towel on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline...On Monday, a U.S. district court in Washington ordered the Dakota Access Pipeline, running from North Dakota to Illinois, to halt operations pending a new environmental review. On the same day, the Supreme Court upheld the federal court’s stop-work order on the Keystone XL pipeline, which would bring oil sands from Canada to the Gulf Coast for refining. All three pipelines have been vigorously opposed by radical environmental groups, often hiding behind Native American tribes."
NPR: "Biden's climate initiative calls to chart the United States on "an irreversible path" to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. To do that, the plan would aim to achieve a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035. It would also upgrade 4 million buildings and weatherize 2 million homes over four years to increase energy efficiency. And the proposal, Biden's campaign said, would seek to shift major cities toward public transportation and "create millions of good, union jobs rebuilding America's crumbling infrastructure." The former vice president's plan comes with a $2 trillion price tag, with plans to deploy those resources at an accelerated pace during his first term.
The proposal also includes environmental justice components, such as creating an Environmental and Climate Justice Division within the Department of Justice."
