Assessment: The often asked question, where is America in prophecy become clearer each day.
President Joe Biden would need to implement a massive tax on emissions and conduct a near elimination of natural gas to meet his climate goals, according to left-leaning environmental experts.
“Therefore, because you tread down the poor And take grain taxes from him,
Though you have built houses of hewn stone, Yet you shall not dwell in them;
You have planted pleasant vineyards, But you shall not drink wine from them.” Amos 5:11
Biden will join world leaders at the United Nations’ climate change conference in November to discuss his administration’s pledge to reduce U.S. carbon emissions by 50 to 52 percent by 2030. While a White House fact sheet claims the goal will “cut … energy costs for families,” environmental experts contend Biden must enact policies that would raise taxes on everyday Americans to reach his emissions milestone.
According to Resources for the Future fellow Marc Hafstead, for example, Biden will fall short of his climate objective if he does not implement a tax hike on carbon emissions. The left-leaning World Resources Institute agrees—mitigation efforts without an emissions tax “carry significant uncertainties and fall short” of Biden’s goal, its top experts wrote in September. The University of Maryland’s Leon Clarke argues Biden would need a “near-complete phase-out” of natural gas-fired utilities and appliances.
The radical steps necessary to achieve his emissions goals—nearly half of U.S. homes use natural gas for heating—reflect the daunting political road ahead for Biden.
