Joe Biden and the Ascendance of Dangerous Climate Policies (Guest: Steve Goreham)

January 7, 2021

Joe Biden's presidency will mean a reversal of sound, pro-American climate and energy policies. His climate policies will raise energy costs, hurt the poor, pay off foreign countries and do nothing to prevent climate change.

In a vain effort to control the weather, Joe Biden and the climate and energy team he is assembling will impose energy policies on the U.S. that make us subservient to hostile foreign powers for our energy needs and economic life. Biden’s policies will also reward politically connected green energy cronies and result in policies that raise energy costs, harming the poor the most. Biden's policies will represent a huge transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich but they will do nothing to prevent climate change, as it is a natural occurrence beyond the control of humankind.
