    Surge Summary: President Biden’s goal to radically and unrealistically cut energy emissions is a gift to the economy of Communist China – which is going full-steam ahead building new coal plants. As delusional as are the President’s plans, some climate-change obsessives let him know they still don’t think he’s doing enough.

    by Gary Bauer

    Joe Biden unveiled his climate change agenda yesterday, which is heavily influenced by AOC’s radical Green New Deal.  But Biden’s climate plan could easily be called the “Make China Great Again” plan.  I’m not kidding.

    Everything he is proposing will put a strait-jacket on the American economy, hurt working-class jobs and destroy our energy industry.  At the same time, he is empowering communist China.

    Biden wants to reduce carbon emissions to 50% of 2005 levels by 2030.  While the U.S. is making tremendous progress reducing emissions, Biden’s radical goal is virtually impossible to meet.  As the Wall Street Journal notes:

    “Amid last year’s Covid-19 lockdowns, greenhouse gas emissions fell to about 21% below 2005 levels. In other words, even with the economy shut down and a large share of the population stuck at home, the U.S. was less than halfway to Mr. Biden’s goal.”

    How much more are you willing to give up for the sake of the left’s climate claims?

    While Biden plans to shut down our coal industry and who knows what else, the rest of the world isn’t quite so willing to go along.  Sen. Joe Manchin noted, “There’s 667 coal-fired plants being constructed as we speak today around the world — zero in the U.S. and 667 in the world.”

    Much of that coal construction is taking place in communist China.  According to one report, “China built more than three times as much new coal power capacity as all the other countries in the world combined last year.”  China is building more than one new coal plant every week.

    Communist China is the biggest threat to Mother Nature on the planet.  It is more than canceling out everything that Joe Biden and John Kerry will inflict on the American people over the next ten years.

    White House officials seem disappointed at communist China’s attitude.  I get the feeling that some progressives seem to think, “Sure, China is running genocidal camps trying to wipe out an entire ethnic group, but as long as they are carbon neutral it’s okay.”

    In other words, it seems the Biden White House is more upset with China’s environmental policies than its human rights abuses!

    Still Not Happy

    A group of climate extremists weren’t happy that Biden and Kerry weren’t destroying the U.S. economy fast enough.  So, they dumped piles of cow manure in front of the White House in protest.

    When this was happening, no one knew for sure what they were dumping.  What if it had been laced with something toxic?  This could have been a dangerous event yesterday.

    But what if a group of conservatives drove a truck near the White House and started dumping an unknown substance to protest ongoing violations of our civil liberties?

    I have no doubt that before the week was over, there would be FBI raids at the homes of these activists.  There would be editorials declaring that the right-wing, which assaulted the Capitol, is now assaulting the White House.

    Tech giants would be volunteering to turn over anyone on social media who supported this “assault.”  Big Banks would be turning over their financial information.  Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer would be condemning this act of extremism, and the Pentagon would be drumming out of the military anyone who supported the protest.
