CO2 Coalition Statement on the Infrastructure Bill
The so-called green energy portions of the infrastructure bill would saddle taxpaying working people with higher energy prices and job losses in pursuit of a political elite’s absurd fantasy of a carbon-free economy.
Virtually everything supporting modern life requires the use of fossil fuels, whose affordability and reliability cannot be matched by wind turbines and solar panels. Moreover, the crises Green New Dealers seek to avert does not exist. There is no climate emergency.
Moderately higher levels of carbon dioxide and natural warming are greening the Earth and producing record crop harvests. Carbon dioxide is not a toxin but rather an indispensable food for plants. Its demonization would be laughable if weren’t so damaging to our energy sector and our way of life.]]>
