Damned Lies and Joe Biden's False Climate Promises (Guest: David Wojick)

August 18, 2020

Joe Biden made numerous expensive promises in his climate and energy plan which are either physically impossible to keep or are politically unlikely to be adopted.

Joe Biden has promised to impose programs to make the U.S. carbon neutral or negative by 2035. As president he would not have the power to unilaterally impose these programs, and because of the high costs, David Wojick says Congress is unlikely to impose them. Most importantly, America has a major choice in the coming election, and it should be made with the understanding that the world is not coming to an end, there is no climate apocalypse, and we must not destroy our energy system, which works well, in an effort to fight climate change.
