Biden’s Secret Climate Plan

Experts agree that Joe Biden's climate plan will lead to higher costs for consumers and households
Joe Biden

President-elect Joe Biden made climate change one of the biggest issues that he ran his campaign on. However, climate experts recently said that his proposed policies would result in higher costs and no actual reduction in global temperatures.

President of the Heartland Institute, James Taylor, told reporters in a press conference that “it is very important to understand just how expensive Biden’s climate plan is and just how much harm it would do to the American economy as well as American household budgets. This puts the average American household on the hook for $17,000 per household as a result of this climate plan.”

In a speech earlier this year, Joe Biden said that climate change is an “existential threat” and proposed a $2 trillion plan to create jobs while increasing clean energy use in the transportation, electricity, and building industries. Biden has said that he does not support the Green New Deal, but his plan calls for a “clean energy revolution” to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

According to polling data, climate change was not an important issue for voters in 2020. Issues such as the economy and coronavirus pandemic took precedent over climate change this year. According to the Pew Research Center, 42% of voters said climate change was “very important” to their vote. This was lower than almost all other issues.

Experts claim that proposals made by Biden and his transition team would lead to higher energy prices for consumers and households.

For example, Treasury Secretary nominee-designate Janet Yellen, said that she supports a carbon tax and that she could implement such a policy if confirmed to head the Treasury.

However, a 2015 study by Brookings Institution researchers concluded that a plan like this would raise the price of gasoline by 36 cents per gallon and add an additional 20% cost to consumer utility bills.

Biden’s climate proposal also aims for an unprecedented reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in an attempt to offset rising temperatures. But some climate scientists say that may not work. A 2018 study concluded that global temperatures would continue to rise for centuries even if greenhouse gas emissions reduced to zero.

Incoming CO2 Coalition executive director Greg Wrightstone said he agreed with the assessment. “If the United States reduced 100% of all of its emissions today, it would only avert four-hundredths of a degree centigrade by the year 2050 and only one-tenth of a degree by the year 2100,” he said to reporters.

Biden promised to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, which President Trump backed out of. According to Biden’s transition website, he “will not only recommit the United States to the Paris Agreement on climate change — he will go much further than that.”

    If Joe were even remotely serious about climate change he would address the fact that China and India, the world’s biggest polluters (look it up) are given free reign by the UN and the Paris Agreement to pollute as much as they want till decades in the future. Remember the Beijing Olympics where everybody was wearing masks b/c of the air pollution? Meanwhile we’ll all go broke so the left can feel good about itself. A giant step backward.

    To propose a carbon tax, instead work with the private sector on tax iniatives, reward the indusry, innovation, technolgy, to reduce the carbons through research,investment, etc. as in elecrtic busses, hydrogen planes, jets, etc. very expensive for families.

      This whole climate change is something this planet has been going through since it was created. I am not saying humans aren’t influencing it; I am saying that all life on the planet has influenced it throughout its history. I am tired of being told that I am the guilty culprit destroying this earth. I grow a lot of my own food, heat with wood that I cut, split, and stack, and am very careful of my fuel and electricity use. I can’t do more…and I won’t! The U S A has reduced their emissions under President Trump without destroying people’s livelihoods. China and other countries in this world are the ones that should be paying to cut emissions. President Trump did the right things getting us out of those endless pits of money consumption that do nothing for the environment. We all know that if more taxes are placed on oil and other pollutants, the money will go somewhere else…to health care for immigrants for example. I am tired of being taken advantage of my these countries who hate us. Good for Trump! He stood up for us American people. Without him, we are gong right back down the tube Obama put us in…and by the way, Obama will be the president for the next four years. Anyone with any intelligence can already see it.

    We went from Global Warming to Climate Change because the evidence was not there. Now we were shut down for 4-6 months and there was no reports on the air quality or climate conditions, why I think because they needed to keep up the narrative so if Biden is confirmed as President he can go with his plan to screw all Americans and repay(quid po quo) the money that got him in
    When Hunter is acquitted of his questionable dealings in China and Ukraine, his energy company will probably be the lead firm to oversee the pillaging of America. My children and grandkids will not see a difference in the climate or for that matter remember the difference from year to year.
    Main stream media will let us know because there the ones who have our backs, looking out for our welfare, only letting us see what we need to see, a trusted source so we can live our lives prescribed by the media and government

    Joe Biden is a political moron, pure and simple. Trump won and Biden knows it. Most of the votes he got were votes against trump not for him. And he even knows that.
