Climate Today: Manchin’s Side Deal, Biden Hosing Native Americans, Silly Celebs

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s not just hardcore leftist Democrats looking to spike Manchin’s deal

Republicans are threatening to tank Manchin’s pro-oil bill over ‘bad blood’ from climate deal

The federal government is nearing the end of its fiscal year, which means Congress is scrambling to put together a stop-gap spending bill designed to last until they can pass a budget (or longer-term funding extension). The Senate appears likely to add $12 billion in funding for Ukraine’s war effort and about $6 billion more in disaster relief funds, while Republicans have essentially rejected President Biden’s requests for $22 billion for COVID-19 needs and $4.5 billion to fight monkeypox.

As a sidebar, how about we use that $12 billion for Puerto Rico?

But “the Hill’s central drama as Congress sprints to finish its work before the midterms” involves Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-W.Va.) as-yet-unreleased legislation to speed up permitting on energy projects, including West Virginia’s Mountain Valley natural gas line, Politico reports.

Progressives are “already balking” at the measure, “a key cog” in the deal Manchin and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) hatched to pass this summer’s Democratic climate, health care, and tax package, Politico reports. And now, even though “construction of energy projects is a longstanding core GOP goal,” Republican senators are threatening to sink the legislation, arguing “they were under no obligation to cough up perhaps a dozen or more votes that Democrats need to get Manchin’s vision done.”

Democrats say Republicans are exacting revenge on Manchin for his deal with Schumer — and Republicans don’t really disagree with that assessment.

“Given what Senator Manchin did on the reconciliation bill, [it’s] engendered a lot of bad blood,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told Politico. “There’s not a lot of sympathy on our side to provide Sen. Manchin a reward.” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) criticized the Democrats’ “corrupt deal.”

How are you feeling about that deal for your vote now, Joe? We’ll see how the people of West Virginia vote the next time you’re up for election.

Biden admin sides against Native Americans in crackdown on oil leasing near Indigenous site

The Biden administration is expected to soon finalize a rule banning oil and gas leasing near a Native American historical site despite heavy opposition from local Indigenous leaders, who say the administration’s rule would prevent them from collecting royalties on their land.

The rule, which the Department of Interior (DOI) announced in November 2021, would implement a 20-year moratorium on federal oil and gas leasing within a 10-mile radius of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park located in northwest New Mexico. Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said the rule, which would amount to a withdrawal of 336,000 acres of public lands from mineral leasing, would protect the environment and “rich cultural legacy” of the region.

“We’re not destroying anything — we are Native Americans ourselves. Nobody is destroying the park,” Delora Hesuse, a Navajo Nation citizen who owns allotted land in the Greater Chaco region, told Fox News Digital in an interview. “The oil companies sure aren’t destroying the park. And they have new technology.”

“It just seems like they are listening more to the environmentalist people,” she continued.

It would put a lot of money in the pockets of the Native Americans, but, climate cult doctrine is more important to Biden

Priyanka Chopra Jonas Says the World Is at ‘Critical Point’ During UN Speech About Climate Change

Priyanka Chopra Jonas is addressing the climate crisis.

In a speech shared by the United Nations via YouTube on Monday, the Quantico star discussed some of the world’s most significant issues, including climate change, during her appearance at the 2022 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) opening remarks.

“We meet today at a critical point in our world, at a time when global solidarity is more important than ever,” the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador shared. (snip)

“We have that plan, the UN sustainable development goals — a to-do list for the world,” she explained. “These goals were created hand in hand with people around the world in 2015; together we have an extraordinary opportunity to change the world that we live in.”

“We owe it to our people, we owe it to our planet,” she said.

Gotta love massive climahypocrites telling us we’re doomed as they run around the world on private fossil fueled jets and in big limos, consuming way more than the average world citizens, and creating plans for Other People.
