During a speech in Somerset, Massachusetts, Biden declared that he was having the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) redirect $2.3B to deal with matters of “extreme heat.”
Ostensibly, per a White House statement, the funding “will help communities increase resilience to heat waves, drought, wildfires, flood, hurricanes, and other hazards by preparing before disaster strikes.”
Biden expanded upon this funding later on in public, asserting that climate change is an emergency.
“This is an emergency and an emergency and I will look at it that way,” Biden blared, “I said last week, say it again, loud and clear. As president, I’ll use my executive powers to combat climate change, the climate crisis in the absence of congressional action.”
Translation: Biden will test the absolute limits of his executive authority to take various actions in the name of “climate change.”
Questioning climate change will become as politically correct as questioning the pandemic: Any type of alternate thinking will not be tolerated.
For instance, even though the majority of Americans indicate they are far more concerned with inflation than the New Green Deal, senior Democrat officials argue that climate change should be the most important issue of all.
Just consider the remarkable commentary from Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin of crime-ridden Illinois, who provided a snide response to fellow Democrat Joe Manchin, a senator with sense who has actually voted against a number of rather insane federal spending proposals.
Especially when the spending proposals boasted some nebulous connection to climate change.
Durbin believes that Manchin represents an apparent obstruction to a national emergency, asserting that “we have to do everything that we can” regarding climate change, insisting that climate change is more important than any other current conditions in the economy, including inflation.
“I think the global situation is an emergency, and if we’re not serious about it in this generation, our kids will pay a heavy, heavy price. We have to do everything that we can do, more important than any current economic statistics is the fact that if we don’t move soon, we’re going to do lasting damage to this planet we live on and our children will have fewer opportunities because of it,” Durbin declared.
Apparently, Ford swallowed that hogwash, as the company just stunningly announced layoffs in order to … you guessed it … “go green.”
“To deliver our Ford+ transformation and lead this exciting and disruptive new era of electric and connected vehicles, we remain focused on reshaping our work and modernizing our organization across all automotive business units and across the company,” Ford spokesman T.R. Reid announced.
Translation: Ford feels compelled to follow the government’s directives in order to stay in business.
Or perhaps Ford just folded too easily.
Whatever the reason, it is clear that the company has cut jobs in favor of “going green,” showing that unemployment rates, like inflation, apparently don’t matter to ultra-green activists.
The same activists who ironically tend to fly in private jets, producing far more carbon emission per capita in a few hours than the average person does in multiple months, if not a year.
“As part of this, we have laid out clear targets to lower our cost structure to ensure we are lean and fully competitive with the best in the industry,” Reid added.
Translation: Ford will be laying off countless employees to be “lean and fully competitive,” even if the layoffs are for nothing more than pure virtue signalling.
First, the White House kills Keystone XL. Next, it influences companies like Ford …
