University of California, Santa Barbara Assistant Professor Leah Stokes joined liberal news organization Democracy Now! to push her extremist vision for U.S. spending on what she called the “climate crisis.”
"The federal government really has the power of the purse. And we’re not talking about, sort of, a one-time surplus. We’re talking about spending trillions of dollars on the climate crisis,” Stokes bleated.
She proceeded to stipulate that her prescription of “trillions of dollars” in spending was “really just a downpayment on the scale of the crisis.”
Former vice president Al Gore, whose investment firm raised $55 million in financing for the electric battery company in 2017, reportedly spoke with Biden in recent weeks to lobby the White House on keeping climate policy as a focus of his infrastructure proposal, which is expected to include major subsidies for green energy companies like Proterra.
