Federal Judge Drops Green Gavel On Biden – He Just Took Away Joe’s Day One Initiative On Climate Change

We’re two months into 2022 and Biden is having a worse year than we expected. The former “moderate” spent most of 2021 pushing radical policies that have crippled the U.S. economy.

You probably only know about the big ones, but nearly every one of the hundreds of orders he signed was to appease the radical left and their anti-American agenda.

One of those orders (which you probably didn’t hear about) put a heavy toll on Americans and the states. It was one of many decisions that hurt a vital industry—which has slammed every Americans’ wallet. But a federal judge just dropped a hammer on old Joe. And this “initiative” is getting shut down.

From Fox Business:

A Louisiana federal district court has halted a key climate initiative from Joe Biden that he implemented shortly after becoming president last year.

In a Friday ruling, U.S. District Judge James Cain blocked Biden’s January 2021 executive order that factored in the “social cost” of carbon emissions when creating rules regulating pollution…

President Joe Biden on his first day in office restored the climate cost estimate to about $51 per ton of carbon dioxide emissions after the Trump administration had reduced the figure to about $7 or less per ton.

A federal judge shut down an order Biden signed in his first month in the White House. It put a huge burden on energy companies, claiming it was to combat the “social cost” of carbon emissions. Biden was “stealth taxing” energy producers with a $51 fine per ton of C02. That was a drastic increase from the Trump-era cost of only $7 per ton.

This is one of the decisions Biden made that harmed America’s energy production. If energy companies have to spend that much in fines to the government, obviously they’ll be forced to produce less energy to save money. That doesn’t result in “cleaner air,” but far less electricity for the 320 million people who live in this country. That’s why your energy bill has gotten so much higher over the last year.

(Or did you think that was a funny coincidence?)

Explain to me how punishing energy companies is going to fix this “social cost” of climate change? Is that money going back into communities? Is it being invested in “green” sources of energy? There’s no evidence to suggest this fine is anything more than a way to deter energy companies from producing affordable, safe energy for consumers.

Meanwhile, China belches out smog from every corner of their country. Russia is expanding its oil production. And Biden is trying to lower sanctions so Iran can rake in the cash from its energy reserves. But America has to suffer?
