He has completely flipped on his position to satisfy Ocasio-Cortez…
Former VP Joe Biden supports AOC’s Green New Deal as a core part of his plan to control climate change.
The proposal reads:
Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face. It powerfully captures two basic truths, which are at the core of his plan: (1) the United States urgently needs to embrace greater ambition on an epic scale to meet the scope of this challenge, and (2) our environment and our economy are completely and totally connected.
Biden went over his goals, promising to enact historic regulation standards for the country.
“I’ll use every authority available to me to drive progress and I will not accept half measures,” he stated. “Because making these revolutionary changes is going to take an incredible commitment at all levels but I am absolutely confident that that’s what the American people want to do.”
In his plan, Biden’s goal is to reach a net of zero emissions by 2050 using $1.7 trillion.
Biden promises to sign executive orders on his first day of presidency to reimplement energy regulations beyond those of the Obama administration and extreme new vehicle and energy production emissions regulations.
The plan calls for most vehicles sold in America to be electric, banning new oil and gas permits and doubling offshore wind energy production by 2030.
Biden stated he would pay for the plan by rolling back Trump’s tax cuts, calling for a “historic investment in our clean energy future and environmental justice” instead.
He also promised to rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement, promising to guide the world forward in a clean energy future.
