Skip to comments.Biden's first 100 days: President kept promises to liberals with aggressive climate actions
Posted on 05/23/2021 10:33:22 AM PDT by Libloather
President Joe Biden has largely delivered on his campaign promise to make curbing climate change a top priority, delighting liberals but irking Republicans who expected a more centrist course given the deal-making profile he cast as a senator.
“Joe Biden’s first 100 days have been about promises made, promises kept. If I am an environmentalist, you have to give him high grades,” said Bob McNally, president of Rapidan Energy Group and former oil official in the George W. Bush administration.
On his first day in office, Biden started the process of reinserting the United States into the Paris Agreement, undoing a signature move of former President Donald Trump, who exited the global climate pact.
Biden underscored the U.S. return to international climate diplomacy by hosting a global summit event last month in which he unveiled a strengthened pledge to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, a target that, if fulfilled, would require fundamentally transforming the country’s fossil fuel-based economy.
The liberal climate advocacy group Evergreen Action has charted that Biden has already taken “meaningful action” on nearly three-quarters of 46 campaign climate commitments using executive authorities. That includes starting the process of imposing direct regulation of a potent greenhouse gas, methane, from oil and gas operations, pushing major banks and asset managers to invest in clean energy, and boosting procurement of zero-emissions vehicles for the federal government fleet.

The enviro nuts can smell the greenery already.
The neocons at the examiner are shocked by Biden’s climate change policies who would have thunk it?
Only the paper is green. The results are yet to come and 90% simply won’t happen.
None of this will have the slightest effect on the “climate”, but our economy will be trashed.
Examiner has turned into a terrible publication. It used to be halfway decent.

There, fixed it
Let me know when they outlaw air conditioning in DC.
Few DC houses or offices had it in 1921.
“The air ducts date to 1928 and were part of a engineering effort to install air conditioning in the Capitol. Summer in Washington is notoriously muggy, and this unpleasantness was amplified in the crowded and windowless legislative chambers. Some Members of Congress took this really, really seriously.”
“The Carrier Corporation - perhaps excessively - predicted that the AC would have ‘a profound effect upon our governmental system! Congress may voluntarily remain in session throughout the summer, in order that our Congressmen may be protected from the intolerable discomforts and dangers of the ordinary outdoor weather!’”
“Reconstruction of the West Wing in 1930 after extensive damage by a Christmas Eve fire in 1929 included a central air-conditioning system installed by the Carrier Engineering Company. When Franklin D. Roosevelt and his family experienced their first warm season at the White House in 1933, air-conditioning units were added to the private quarters, although FDR rarely cooled the air in the Oval Office, choosing to work in shirt-sleeves with the windows open.”
“A nation that can’t control its energy sources can’t control its future.”
I don’t think he would want the US to become dependent on Chinese-made solar panels.
SO this puppet and his minions are allowing everyone under the sun in this country and they get freebies.
Meanwhile, we supposedly have water shortages, some food shortages, gas supply issues and higher housing and food costs.
And we are expected to pay a price for what this administration is doing.
