 White House could declare climate emergency as soon as Wednesday: sources
by Rachel Frazin - 07/19/22 11:04 AM ET

President Biden could declare a climate emergency as soon as Wednesday, two sources familiar with the plans told The Hill on Tuesday.

One of the sources said that federal agencies are expecting an executive order declaring a climate emergency as soon as tomorrow, but it’s not entirely clear what it will entail.

A second source also said the declaration could come on Wednesday. A third person confirmed that a climate emergency declaration was under consideration by the White House, as first reported by The Washington Post.

The White House announced Tuesday that Biden will travel on Wednesday to Somerset, Mass., to deliver remarks on tackling climate change.

A White House official declined to directly comment on whether Biden will pursue a climate emergency declaration, saying only that many options are under consideration.

“The President made clear that if the Senate doesn’t act to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen our domestic clean energy industry, he will. We are considering all options and no decision has been made,” the official said in an email.

The move comes as hopes for climate action on Capitol Hill have stalled, as swing vote Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) backed away from talks last week following months of negotiations. The potential climate legislation, as part of Biden’s broader economic agenda, was expected to include major investments in clean energy.

Most Unprecedented, Illegal, and Abusive use of the EO in nation's history. He has taken a role of dictator.

GOP needs to throw the kitchen sink at this.

What does EO accomplish?  Nothing.

It's an empty attempt to create a false sense of urgency to pass his terrible legislation.

It's a publicity stunt to get Congress off its ass to pass more of his failing agenda.

Never let a good crisis go to waste.  If there is no crisis, manufacture one.

No, it's doubling down, and it is dangerous. He can use the administration's regulatory powers with a free hand in an emergency.

Watch him legislate from that EO, and by proclamation or dictate everything to dissolve  hydrocarbon industry in this country.  And I don't have much faith in our feckless GOP to stop him.

XL was a good example of this.

The emergency is that fuel prices are falling and this threatens their scheme to create a Green Xanadu utopia.

One person's utopia is another's dystopia.

When society degrades under the weight of the idiotic green initiatives, I don't see utopia.  Unless you feel utopia consists of starvation, mass deaths, disease, and crime ridden streets.

These idiots have no idea what they are about to bring upon the world.

All the more reason to stock up on food, generator fuel, and ammunition.

The Dems are counting on more Government spending and gimmicks to offset the harm the Green Agenda is causing to the unwashed masses.

Holding the line on new appropriations will let unwashed masses feel the real cost for the Green Agenda, and this will hurt the Dems.

Dems: We need more government spending to offer relief for inflation and fuel.

GOP: If energy was more affordable for everyone, there would be no need for additional Government spending.  This can be accomplished by more private investment in American domestic energy.  Build, Back, American.  Why should working, taxpaying American families be compelled to subsize the Green New Sham / the Global Climate Shakedown?

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one’s thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down.

I think he just said that he is able to control and stop droughts, all over the world?
Boy! That is one special magic trick ...
And then by him stopping droughts, America's military will not have to go to war?

The WH has gone full bat crap crazy.  Declare a climate emergency?  What the heck does that entail?

Forcing everyone to go solar, do away with their gasoline driven cars and go EV? Putting meters on water and limiting consumption?

No more cattle ranching? No more dairy farming? 

..and people are supposed to be able to afford this how?  Or, do we wait in line like good little sheep with our bowls so that they can give us our daily portion of porridge?

Durbin: Climate ‘Emergency’ Is ‘More Important Than’ Current Economy, Inflation

Ian Hanchett 19 Jul 2022

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Senate Majority Whip Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) responded to Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) inflation concerns on climate legislation by stating that climate is “an emergency” that “We have to do everything that we can” about, and this is “more important than any current economic statistics” like inflation.

Host Ari Melber asked, “Is the global macro inflation a reason not to do something on climate right now? How do you work with your colleague there when sometimes his reasons don’t really match what’s happening?”

Durbin responded, “I respect Joe. I disagree with him. 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. So, I would say to Joe, we may disagree, my friend, but when you think about your kids and grandkids, you’ve got to take an extra step forward.”

Congress writes the checks/pays the bills

If an EO includes monetary expenditures does it fall back on Congress to pay or would it be covered in an EO?.....


Nevermind just answered my own question

Quote
What can the President not do?
A PRESIDENT CANNOT . . .

declare war. decide how federal money will be spent. interpret laws. choose Cabinet members or Supreme Court Justices without Senate approval.

Pure horse shit.

The fighting in Syria is (ultimately) going on to keep a major Natural Gas pipeline from taking gas from the Persian Gulf to Europe. (Sometimes there is a Russian under the bed).

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
