Landmark US climate bill will do way more harm than good

The landmark climate legislation passed by the Senate after months of wrangling and weakening by fossil-fuel friendly Democrats will lead to more harm than good, according to frontline community groups who are calling on Joe Biden to declare a climate emergency.

If signed into law, the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) would allocate $369bn to reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions and invest in renewable energy sources – a historic amount that scientists estimate will lead to net reductions of 40% by 2030, compared with 2005 levels.

But the bill makes a slew of concessions to the fossil fuel industry, including mandating drilling and pipeline deals that will harm communities from Alaska to Appalachia and the Gulf coast and tie the US to planet-heating energy projects for decades to come.

“Once again, the only climate proposal on the table requires that the communities of the Gulf south bear the disproportionate cost of national interests bending a knee to dirty energy – furthering the debt this country owes to the South,” said Colette Pichon Battle from Taproot Earth Vision (formerly Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy).

************************************************

Democrats put more oil drilling in the climate bill, and then pretend that they saved the planet.

the great problen IS and HAS BEEN that there is no practical renewable energy source to replace fossil fuel with. experts have known since the 1970s that wind turbines and solar panels just will not cut it!

HERE IS THE GREAT LIE...why would the right (corporate America and big business) NOT be willing to invest in a new green renewable energy source especially if it could produce a profit?

WHY WOULDN'T THEY?

if there is MONEY in green renewable energy...well there you are.

the left is asking people WHO KNOW that wind turbines and solar panels are insufficient to surrender EVERYTHING to, the baby as well as the bathwater to 2 methods that will not work.

that is what the left is scared sheetless to have any two way discussion about.
