Senate Democrats Turn Heat Up On Biden

A group of eight Democratic senators is pushing President Biden to declare a national climate emergency. According to them, this would be building off many of their recent legislative wins.

President Biden had been considering declaring a climate emergency, as this would unlock several powers for him that would allow him to deal with the problem more. This was particularly discussed earlier this year when the proposed climate bill had been falling through. However, he never actually took the step and it was Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) swing vote that helped the bill pass after certain changes were made to the bill so that it could become friendlier to the oil and gas industry.

A letter by Democratic Senators shows that they are still asking Biden to declare a climate emergency. As they write in their letter this would help them make a lot more progress and wouldn’t even allow them to make bigger changes than the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) did.

Sens. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Alex Padilla (D-Calif.). Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) who are the Senators in the letter said that while the bill will make them make significant climate progress it will not be enough if they still want to reach Biden’s goal of cutting emissions down to half of their 2005 levels.

In the letter, they write that these goals will only be achieved if they “build off” the momentum of the IRA with executive actions. This is why declaring a climate emergency would be a great next step as it would unlock a full arsenal of tools for the president.

  1. This shows to go ya how much the demoncraps hate America and all its people and how the love power and money.

  2. These idiots who want Biden to declare a “Climate Emergency” are just politicalizing something in hopes that it will help them maintain their POWER, but We the Majority of the Legal People of the U.S. want that POWER taken away because they will only continue to ABUSE that POWER, not to help We the People and our Country but to continue their DESTRUCTION of our Country and Limiting The RIGHTS & FREEDOMS afforded us by our CONSTITUTION….THE POWER BELONGS IN THE HANDS OF THE LEGAL PEOPLE OF THESE “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, not in the hands of a Few Elitist POLITICIANS.

  3. Human effect on the climate is less than 1/10 of a percent, it’s all about the 25,000 year orbit of our solar system, in another 25,000 years, (we’ll destroy this planet long before then), they’ll be bitching about the coming ice age…

    The hubris of humans is our downfall…

  4. UP VOTE for Barto and WuDanFu

  5. Like everyone that has a brain in this country knows all this climate change is just another tool the Democrats use to keep people under there tumbs and stay in power. People in this country better wake up and pay attention to what Biden and the Democrats are doing to us. Blaming us for the climate change is all politics. The earth goes through cycle’s that changes the weather patern and the tilt of the earth will change weather also. The earth wobbles on it’s axes when it rotats and this will change the weather also. Then you have all these forest fires putting out all this smoke that afects the climate. Volcanos putting out all this smoke and ash. Then cutting down the rain forest has more afect on our climate than our car’s do. I could go on and on about all the other natural things that happens on this Earth that afects our climate but we and our car’s are only a samll percentage of the problem. Going to electric car’s will cause more pollutant than the car because mineing the ore to make batterys will cause more pollutant. And on top of that there isn’t enough ore to make enough batterys for all the cars we would need to supply the world.

  6. They want to legalize this Climate Change garbage to retain power in many ways. It IS simply garbage as this alleged climate change has NOTHING to do with humans! Barto and WuDanFu are both correct in what they have said. Even if we completely stop all air pollution in the CIVILIZED world, you will still have China, Russia, and India all producing more pollution each than the rest of the world combined! The USA has enough oil and fossil fuels to last us alone over 500 years and the world over 200 years. as FAR AS ELECTRIC POWER, WHERE IN THE HECK DO YOU THINK ELECTRICITY COMES FROM> we BURN coal OR oil TO MAKE THE STEAM TO SPIN THE GENERATORS TO PRODUCE THIS ELECTRIC POWER WE WILL NEED TO USE PLUS THE MULTI BILLION DOLLARS REQUIRED TO PLACE THESE CHARGING STATIONS ALL ALONG THE HIGHWAY!
