Happy Earth Day!
I would love to hear Larry’s take on the Sierra Club canceling John Muir and dismantling our National Parks and turning them over to Native Americans in order to strike a blow against “white supremacy.” Joe Biden is currently speaking to other world leaders on the climate change crisis.
“Multiple world leaders announced new targets for reducing greenhouse gases during President Biden’s virtual climate summit, which featured more than 40 heads of state and other world and business leaders. …
United States: Biden said the U.S. would seek to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50%-52% by 2030 relative to 2005 levels, roughly twice as ambitious as the previous target of a 26%-28% cut by 2025 set during the Obama administration. …”
“Why it matters: Achieving it would require greatly accelerating the transition of U.S. power, industry and transportation to cleaner energy sources and greater efficiency. The pledge aims to show the U.S. return to climate diplomacy and prod other nations to act aggressively too. …”
Biden is going all out to change the weather before 2030.
It is going to require drastic changes to the U.S. economy to reach the goal. Even CNN is saying it would be like doing 190 moonshots and Russia and China are not playing along.
Note: Unfortunately, these emission targets still aren’t good enough for Greta Thunberg.
