Joe Biden Unveils $2 Trillion Plan to Address ‘Climate Justice’

Joe Biden is proposing, if elected in November, to spend upwards of $2 trillion to remake America’s energy infrastructure so it better addresses “environmental and climate justice.”

On Tuesday, the former vice president released his long-awaited climate change plan. Biden’s proposal, heavily influenced by the recommendations of a unity task force set up earlier this year by the presumptive nominee and his vanquished primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), suggests spending $2 trillion over four years to combat climate change.

The price tag is substantially higher than the $1.7 trillion that Biden proposed to spend over ten years on climate issues during the Democrat primary last year. Most of the new spending comes from the ambitious goals laid out in the proposal the former vice president unveiled Tuesday.

For instance, Biden is now proposing to adopt a 100 percent clean-electricity standard by 2035. A similar idea was initially raised by Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) last year during his own ill-fated run for the Democrat nomination. If implemented, it would ensure that all electricity produced in the United States would be “carbon-free.” This would likely have a massive impact on the coal and natural gas industries that, according to the Energy Information Association, produce around 63 percent of all electricity in the country.

Biden’s ambitions, though, do not stop there.

Biden proposes overhauling nation’s energy sector by 2035

In the plan, Biden pledges to spend $2 trillion over four years to promote his energy proposals, a significant acceleration of the $1.7 trillion over 10 years he proposed spending in his climate plan during the primary.

He argued during his Monday evening fundraiser that the current “historic set of crises — a pandemic, an economic crisis and systemic racism” would make it “easier” to pass major reforms like his climate plan.

Biden’s false climate promises

Comment by Willem Post on July 18, 2020 at 3:09pm

All these pronouncements have no detailed analyses to support them.

It is best to throw them in the garbage, and send Biden to a retirement community in Hong Kong.

So it appears that Biden never was serious about getting elected as President. What is amazing to me is that even $2 trillion ain't gonna do it. I think Biden will find that the younger generations are tired of people mortgaging their future. Between the trillions spent by Trump and the proposal by Biden, our children may have clean energy but no jobs and no energy and a government system dismantled by climate fakers (ak China's Operatives).

Let me guess who will get Biden's "stash". Repeat after me. "C...H...I...N...A"

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
