On his first days as president, Joe Biden issued dozens of executive orders that profoundly change U.S. policy on energy and climate. Many of the policies kill American jobs, but the Biden administration promises that those jobs will be replaced by new “green” jobs. Question: shouldn’t the “green” jobs have been created before killing existing jobs? The stated rationale for these changes is that we are in a “climate crisis” that is an “existential threat to the planet.” However, there is no physical evidence supporting the claim of a “climate crisis” or that carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels are the principal cause of the “crisis.” There is, however, physical evidence that all climate changes we have experienced fall within natural variation. The only crisis is purely political.
“In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.” – George Orwell
Biden tells us to follow the science, but his policies demonstrate that he and his administration are ignorant of the science.
