Biden’s Threatens to Declare a National Climate Change Emergency - But is There a Bigger Plan?

Logical people appreciate that a gradual shift to more environmentally friendly sources of energy would be good. However, the radical left has twisted the debate over a common-sense transition to renewable energy.

Under the broad topic of climate change, the progressive left is pushing for a dangerously rapid transition. They want it all, and they want it now. There is no consideration for the financial devastation that an unrealistically rapid shift would cause.

Most of the climate change clowns are wealthy elitists. They can afford to make a rapid transition to all renewable energy sources because they can afford it. However, the majority of Americans will be hard-pressed to financially survive such drastic changes.

But that’s not stopping Joe Biden. Under the guise of the “Green New Deal,” the Biden agenda has attempted to sneak radical climate change policies inside massive spending bills. Thankfully, a couple of common-sense Democrats pushed back.

Biden’s Build Back Better legislation was stuffed with billions to fund this radical shift in energy policy. Because of Senators like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, it failed. Without the ability to use the proper channels for such dramatic social changes, the left is looking elsewhere.

Now, Biden is trying to hang this burden on the American people through an executive order. He doesn’t have that power, but he’s reportedly going to try. Biden is scheduled to make a trip to Somerset, Massachusetts.

According to reports from the White House, he is going to make a speech about “tackling the climate crisis and seizing the opportunity of a clean energy future to create jobs and lower costs for families.” This is the same moron who killed thousands of energy jobs the day he took office.

The radical left has no intention of boosting the economic welfare of Americans by creating “clean energy jobs.” The number of clean energy jobs they propose to create, compared to those jobs lost by Biden’s attack on the fossil fuel industry, is nominal at best.

The U.S. Senate is working on legislative measures to promote a more gradual shift. This is unacceptable to climate change radicals. They insist on an “all right now approach.” The White House says that if nothing is done, Biden may declare a national climate emergency.

But there’s a lot more to this than just an emergency declaration. This proposed “climate change emergency” is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is a total power grab by the Biden administration. American families will suffer tremendously. This is about clean energy. It’s about control.

In February, the Center for Biological Diversity published a report that outlined the radical agenda being considered by the Biden administration. The report said that “declaring an emergency would authorize the Biden administration to execute key climate executive actions.”

Such an order would give Biden the sole capacity to limit all fossil fuel imports and exports. Joe Biden could suspend all offshore drilling leases, which account for 11 million acres of federal waters used by critical energy suppliers.

Biden could also reinstate a crude oil export ban that Congress voted to repeal. Ironically, all of these threats to use executive action came one day after Joe Manchin revealed that he would not support a bill that spends billions on unrealistic climate change policies.

This isn’t an effort to help the world move towards cleaner sources of energy. Joe Biden and the left are using climate change as a tool to control society. Their abrupt call for change will destroy the lives of millions of Americans. Radical climate change policies are part of a bigger plan.
