Trump plans ‘top-to-bottom’ overhaul of the federal environmental review process which stands in the way of nearly every infra-structure project in the country. That would create millions of jobs, attract more business to American and make the USA more competitive.
Biden just released his $2 TRILLION climate change plan, product of a task force co-chaired by Rep. Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez.
Biden vows to outlaw all use of coal and natural gas to generate electricity within 15 years. He will ban oil and gas production on federal land and offshore. He seeks ‘zero emissions’ cars. Biden is promising to delete the jobs of millions of Americans — at a times of soaring unemployment. A ban on offshore drilling alone would cost 200,000 jobs and damage regional economies. Basic consumer choice would disappear for vehicles, dishwashers, even homes.
Biden wants to massively re-regulate the energy economy. Trump said, “We want to get things built.”
