WASHINGTON - The huge pandemic relief and spending bill includes billions of dollars to promote clean energy such as wind and solar power while sharply reducing over time the use of potent coolants in air conditioners and refrigerators that are considered a major driver of global warming.
The energy and climate provisions, supported by lawmakers from both parties, were hailed as the most significant climate change law in at least a decade.
The sprawling legislation also extends tax credits for solar and wind power that are a key part of President-elect Joe Biden’s ambitious plan to generate 100 percent “clean electricity” by 2035.
Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware, the top Democrat on the environment panel, said the bill would cut pollution from school buses, air conditioners, refrigerators and more, while creating thousands of American jobs and helping “save our planet from the climate crisis.″
“Make no mistake,″ he said, the new legislation “will soon be some of the most significant climate solutions to pass out of Congress to date.″
The bill won praise across the political spectrum, as environmental groups and major business organizations hailed an agreement years in the making.
Marty Durbin, a senior vice president at the Chamber of Commerce, called the package — the first major energy bill in more than a decade — “truly historic” and among the most significant action Congress has ever taken to address climate change.
Much of the sweeping energy package — long promoted as a “down payment” on fighting climate change — was agreed to earlier this year, but the package fell apart in March over a dispute among Senate Republicans on the HFC provision.

Congress back to its old ways! How much money can they spend what we don’t have.
Those on board are reaping the rewards, money goes out, gets filtered and laundered and ends up in their accounts down the line. Everyone gets a piece of the pie. Your AMERICAN TAX PAYER DOLLARS AT WORK. Read the new stimulus bill and where your money is going. its going into thier pockets
How much money can they spend what we don’t have on a hoax?
This bill needs a veto. The Senate is waiting to slobber all over this pile of crap.
sell everyone in the country out for a measely $600/$1800 if you are an illegal and screw us over royally.
DO NOT SIGN THIS!
Not sure it even matters anymore, though - The Collapse is probably inevitable now.
I agree...we are probably done.
Pure corruption - this is a criminal enterprise operating in plain sight.
Wait just a minute here, a decade ago gorbal warmalists told us giant SUV’s were the cause of warming, now they are singing a different tune....
DEMOCRATS ARE A CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.
Veto and trust that the massive bipartisan supporters wake up. Hopefully at the very least Republicans who weren’t allowed time to read the bill to see what’s in it will pull back on the veto bust vote.
a pee is not a news agency it is a propaganda arm of the deep state left.
Globull Warming... the go-to “crisis” when all other “crises” run out.
GlowBULL Warming, now fortified with COVID.
This is our next big control-hoax.
They will use the techniques learned in the coup against Trump to super weaponize GLOwBULLhoaxing and climate change.
Look into 12v and 24v split system A/C
Enough video on ytube showing efficiency, even using a voltage converter from 120 to 12 or 24 it is still cheaper to run.
All CFC or toxic AC gas recharges have been changed out to minimalistic toxicity gasses years ago, vehicle AC the same.
Wind is Not zero carbon, globally shown as a mass energy deficit, Solar even at the latest efforts is a 5 year replacement cycle, want to know where all those toxic panels end up ??
Going green means ripping off the bucks from brainwashed population that think they are able to change the planets atmosphere, while china does not give a unicorn fart and builds and commissions coal and nuclear power stations like candy stores.
So is 90 % Of the GOP , we need to stay home next election ( yes let the dems win ) and then get new Blood in dc ...............
only way to clean out our own swamp
Oops, missed out on Batteries
Use LiPo4 batteries instead of Lithium or Lead Acid, why?.
Safe discharge before recharge for 80% for LiPo4
For the others, about 20%
Meaning you get to draw 60% more usable power out of the LiPo4 per cycle of use, the others after discharge of 29% or more and it starts the destruction of the chemical components.
Will chat about this in private if you have questions.
