President Joe Biden will pledge to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at least in half by 2030 as he convenes as a virtual climate summit with 40 world leaders, according to three people with knowledge of the White House plans.The nonbinding but symbolically important pledge is a key element of the summit, which begins Thursday as world leaders gather online to share strategies to combat climate change.It came on the day Squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced her Green New Deal and her '10-year mobilization to fight the climate crisis'. 'The Green New Deal envisions a 10-year national mobilization to fight the interconnected economic, social, racial and climate crises

I love springtime, getting those nice packages of seeds to start under grow lights. My farmer neighbor always advised, don’t plant things that might freeze to come up before May 15, because they might be frosted. One might think the date would be getting earlier with all this climate crisis, but I hear another snow storm is expected in Virginia within the week. I wonder if AOC ever planted a garden.

Why only half, and why not before the end of Biden's first term? Just shut down oil production the way you did coal. We don't need energy. We can import everything from China. We don't need jobs, as the government has already taken over the payroll.

I don't think any of these people constantly taking about Climate Change and a Climate Crisis have ever planted a garden or lived on a farm. They are all city folks who know nothing about climate, the weather, planting and growing anything green. To them, everything is a crisis and an opportunity to take taxpayer money and give to leftists. The left doesn't care at all or give a thought to the climate. It's all about our money and their power.

'Climate change' is the great hoax of our time. It is not happening to a significant degree (less than many climate variations in the past), but is a naked smoke screen for the left's real agenda of world government (what better issue than one that can only be achieved by every nation working together.) It is estimated that the average CO2 in our atmosphere is 412 parts per million, down from 438ppm just a decade ago. The average CO2 level over the 4 billion year history of the earth is reportedly about 1000 ppm. (412ppm is about 0.004% of the atmosphere.) And for 90% of earth's history, both poles have been ice-free. The feather merchants continue to peddle misinformation - even at the highest levels of government - in spite of the fact that NONE of their dire predictions have come true.

FTA: "Biden will pledge to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions at least in half by 2030." According to the Paris climate accord, China and India are allowed to do nothing about their greenhouse gas emissions until 2030. Today China emits more greenhouse gas emissions than the US. By 2030, China is projected to double their greenhouse gas emissions. Add in India, there will be 4 to 5 increase in greenhouse gas emissions even if the US reduces greenhouse gas emissions by half while destroying its economy. THIS IS INSANE !!

Let's start with you. From this point on the Executive branch is only permitted 40% of the current energy it uses. Stop flying, cut back the heat and AC in the WH, maybe close off a few rooms, and how about all those silly lights all over DC alone? Hey, I saw Black Mirror, how about you supply all the convicts with treadmills to generate power. I'd credit the production against usage. OhOh! we could park the Beast and it's back up and ground could fly around on an old C141..or even just a falcon. I think there is a couple still left. Ah, I'll leave that for the AF to sort out (hint, get Lt Col or below to work on that, I think Birds get a lobotomy with those eagles) Now about all these meetings and travel...well, you can't shut down at noon and make it pay, so you might as well stay home..ever heard of Zoom? School children use that instead of real teaching. Why don't you use that and the real bonus is the Chicoms can just tap into it and you won't have to do reports anymore? Wouldn't that be great?? Give Nancy your autopen and ask her to send you a copy after the fact. Saves the energy. See, this isn't so hard! Now curl up with your jello and watch the TV.

President Joe Biden's ambitious plan to slash greenhouse emissions by 50 to 52 percent over the next decade could prompt sweeping changes that could affect how Americans eat, drive and heat their homes.Biden announced the goal to cut emissions by 2030, compared with 2005 levels, at the start of a two-day climate summit on Thursday. He vowed the plan, which would set the US on a path of a zero emissions economy by no later than 2050, would create jobs and boost economies. But he is yet to release any firm details on exactly how such a plan will affect the daily lives of ordinary Americans.

The bill will now be sent to the US Senate.“It’s the second time the House has approved such legislation in two years, but the statehood bill, long a goal for the nation’s capital, faces an uphill climb in a Senate evenly divided between the two parties,” noted The Hill, adding that “Winning a vote in the Senate would likely require ending the filibuster that requires most legislation to clear a 60-vote hurdle.
