Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy Looking For Ways To Change Infrastructure Bill, Skyrocket Your Energy Bills

Biden climate advisor pushes clean energy standard for Democrats’ priority bill

Gina McCarthy, a top advisor to President Biden on domestic climate policy, said administration officials and Democrats in Congress are still discussing how to include a clean-energy standard for utilities in broad infrastructure legislation this year.

“We continue to float ideas, and we’re sure we’re going to land in the best place,” she said in an interview with The Times on Friday.

Most of Biden’s initiatives to address climate change won’t make the cut in bipartisan infrastructure legislation being negotiated with a group of Republicans, a package focused on roads, bridges, water projects and broadband access. Administration officials want to include the clean energy standard in a second measure, one that’s more focused on programs for families and workers, that Democrats want to move as a so-called reconciliation bill, which under Senate rules would be protected from a Republican filibuster.

The clean-energy proposal is intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the generation of electricity. Biden wants to ultimately produce all of the country’s electricity from carbon-free sources by 2035.

Here’s an idea: try and pass this on its own, a freestanding bill, rather than jamming it into the infrastructure bill. Let the House and Senate debate this on its own merits, rather than having a convoluted discussion on this and a whole lot of things in the infrastructure bill. Let’s hear the pros and cons, like, oh, hey, rolling brownouts and blackouts like in California. How the cost of energy in California is much higher than the other continental states, and much less reliable. How it’s really not the Constitutional duty of the federal government to institute a national standard, nor is it a job as laid out in the Constitution.

McCarthy described the clean energy standard as “an important anchor” for the administration’s climate goals.

“It will provide certainty about telling the utilities what the future needs to look like so they can continue to make their money and move forward and have a healthy system in place,” she said.

That would be up to the States. If California wants to crater their energy sector, let them. This is not an assigned power for Los Federales, it would be an un-Constitutional power grab, and all the GOP run states would immediately sue, just like with Obama’s Clean Power Plan.

The GOP should introduce a bill that restricts Biden, Harris, Kerry, and McCarthy, among others, from taking fossil fueled travel.
