At the recent climate summit, President Joe Biden committed, without consulting Congress, to halving American 2005 greenhouse gas levels by 2030. China, the world’s largest polluter, is committed to begin reducing their greenhouse emissions by 2030. Putin stated Russia was considering "significantly reducing the net accumulated emissions in our country by 2050."

According to the Wall Street Journal, for Biden to achieve his goal, every coal plant in America must be closed. The same goes for energy created by using natural gas. Power generated by wind and solar would have to increase by six or seven times.

To illustrate the complete absurdity of Biden’s actions, consider that in 2020, while the American economy was basically shut down, emissions were about 21 percent of 2005 levels — not even halfway to Biden’s goal.

But while Biden places American producers on some sort of energy diet, China and Russia will continue to produce goods the old-fashioned way, and the world, logically adhering to the laws of economics, will buy from the lowest cost producer — not the lowest carbon-emitting producer.

American workers should be afraid — very, very afraid.

“All the glaciers in Eastern Greenland are rapidly melting,” the Harrisburg [Pennsylvania] Sunday Courier reported on Dec. 17, 1939

"A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000.....He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect. " AP Article dated June 29, 1989

Noel Brown, we are 21 years past 2000. Entire nations have not been been wiped off the face of the Earth.

"And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, [Al] Gore said.

Al Gore, your ten years ended 5 years ago......

And the presenters will present tons of data to prove their point. They'll call it "science". Why do people believe? There's a sucker born every minute. Assigning a specific time period is not wise. Are you listening, AOC?

But Biden believes. Obama did not. How do we know? He bought waterfront property in Martha's Vineyard worth $11.75 Million.

American workers should be afraid. This comment definitely comes from a person who is not an American Worker! The climate change will affect the oil companies therefore this comment is intended to protect the fossil fuel office workers, not those who work with tools. Time waits for no one .we have been stepping into the future for quite some time. We cannot wait for other countries to step up and do the right thing. Climate change is real, accept it and roll with the necessary changes required.

Climate change is real. Man-made climate change on the other hand.....[thumbdown]

"BLACK GENOCIDE" supported by the LEFT is real too! That cute shrewd opration supported by the LEFTISTS murders over 300,000 BLACK babies annually! It is considered the number one taker of lives against the BLACK population in America! Shall we be concerned about that too? Maybe we should just roll with that, in order to keep'em in their place, or they might take over something if we don't,...am I getting close?

I look at facts, and I listen to truth! I walked off that Liberal Plantation decades ago. It is so incredible that after I did, my ears began to hear better, and my eyes began to see things around me that were invisible to me before! Liberals Woke, Climate Change Activists have been lyning about this planet's future for decade! When you want to know about something you go to the creator who made the "Something!"

That would exclude Russia, XI JINPING, China, and all their Agents & Secret Surrogates working on the "COOL" .. here in this nation ...working against America like German Spies did in WW11..incognito! We today have the biggest KKK supporter &surrogate in history sitting in the Oval Office calling and labeling others as RACISTS! Calling the country he represents,.. Systemic Racist ..in front of the world!

He is more patriotic to the world than he is to the country he lives in and stole from! His national security GURU on pertinent topics of state is a former bartender, ( AOC ) who is deranged, and drunk on power, who hates everything America stands for! Her delusional partner in idiocy is a Somalia Refugee Congresswoman from Minnesota, named ILHAN OMAR... who almost single-handedly has destroyed law and order there! Both are police haters to the core, and of the highest order!!!!!!

So then allow me to tie a ribbon on this. God Almighty made the heavens, and the earth! By his Devine wisdom only he knows when this earth will cease to be! I know Liberals might not believe GOD exists, but he does indeed exist! Climate change is a Chinese made theory, concocted to throttle American growth down so they can overtake us in... Power and Economically! This is in their long range plans they have already established! News Flash, China stands to benefit from the American Green Deals as much as America, because they will be manufacturing the equipment needed for America to go on that wild goose chase, shutting down fossil fuel jobs and factories while BEIJING swallows them up! America is playing checkers while CHINA is masterminding the art of Chess!

You, sir, have gone down the rabbit hole.

Charles Douglas

Ahhh, so I have gone down the rabbit hole huh? Well thank you, I call that a complement coming from you! I've been told that time and again after I walked off the LEFTIST Woke Plantation decades ago. The straight of the matter is I have done much better in the world after I left y'all!

When another ten cubic miles of ice melts Greenland will be as green as it was 600 years ago. Farm houses are emerging from glaciers. They were occupied by people who exported grain, fur and flesh to Europe.

And much of Galveston, Texas City, Hitchcock, LaMarque and Bacliff will be under water.

Carlos Ponce

In how many years do you say that will happen, Gary Scoggin?
