Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), two of Congress’ most vocal proponents for aggressive climate action, on Monday called for President Biden to establish a Civilian Climate Corps.
The CCC had been a key element in early versions of the Build Back Better Act, the sweeping environmental and infrastructure bill. It was not ultimately included in the slimmed down Inflation Reduction Act, which was nonetheless the largest climate bill in U.S. history.
Biden was a vocal backer of the Climate Corps early in his presidency, comparing it to the Civilian Conservation Corps introduced during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The original legislation called for $10 billion to launch the new program.

Pretty much. Red Guards, Green Guards.
Ransack your home looking for counterrevolutionaries who aren’t Green enough.
Another wealth redistribution program. Steal from the productive sector and give it to the slackers.
I imagine it’s to employ the millions of military aged foreign invaders eh?
In this case, I think it would be the Biden Yoots.
Or he could call them the F. Joe Biden All-Union Pioneer Organization ... there's historical precedent for that as well.
Their first mission would be to fly into the sun.
Spend a few billion on mass media propaganda and the young sheeple will be lined up for the “critical mission”.
Brainwashing humans is so easy even a chimp can do it.
A few years ago there was a knock on my front door.
A city green guard warrior said he was doing a survey of non-native invasive plants. We have a large English ivy covered hill. The ivy stabilizes the soil.
I was told that I should "consider" removing the ivy before I was legislated to.
At that point I advised him that the when state, county and city first removes all the ivy they planted for soil stabilization reasons in the 60's, I'll consider his "suggestion". And then added - the state brought in Scot's Bloom in the 30's also for soil stabilization along highway reasons. All that has to go first.
To which he left and said "We will be back!" . Haven't heard from them now over 10 years.
Man, that’s quite an experience.
The Tater said “yes” immediately - but he was in the shower and thought they said “Civilian Climax Corps”...
The CCC program was intended to take large numbers of unemployed youth off the city streets and move them to the countryside where they wouldn’t cause trouble. You know, crime and riots. Make
So the analog today would be to round up melanistic urban gangbangers, ship them to some remote part of Wyoming and make them build windmills and solar farms.
Yeah, like that’s gonna happen......
I think they’ll get less opened doors than Jehova’s Witnesses.
Smells like boondoggle
Betcha the CCC will eventually be issued special uniforms and carry machine guns.
They’d be targets on my property.
From “Breaking Bad”—the car wash pollution scam:
Smoking a cigarette or cigar causes global warming and the Civilian Climate Corps will arrest you.
