Biden pledges to end government support for coal amid climate change concerns

At the G-7 summit in the U.K. last week, President Joe Biden joined other world leaders in pledging to end their support for the coal industry amid growing concerns over global climate change, The Washington Times reported.

Government support for coal power generation from G-7 nations including the U.S., Japan, and Germany is set to end by the end of this year.

Cutting off coal

According to a fact sheet provided by the White House, Biden and other G-7 leaders, including Canada’s Justin Trudeau and France’s Emmanuel Macron, “agreed to a set of concrete actions to accelerate the global transition away from coal generation as part of our efforts to combat the climate crisis.”

The White House’s fact sheet claimed “unabated coal power generation is the single biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions globally.”

“Consistent with President Biden’s domestic leadership, G7 Leaders will commit to an end to new direct government support for unabated international thermal coal power generation by the end of this year,” it added.

In addition to power production, the group also hopes to limit carbon emissions by making cutbacks in areas including transportation and agriculture, The Washington Times said.

“Build Back Better” goes global

Besides climate change, other topics broached at the weekend G-7 included the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and its effects on the global economy, as well as national security threats out of the Middle East, Russia, and China.

According to Breitbart, global leaders also backed multitrillion-dollar investments in infrastructure “for low- and middle-income countries” as part of what they’re calling the “Build Back Better World initiative.”

The effort comes in direct competition with “China’s trillion-dollar Belt and Road infrastructure initiative, which has been widely [criticized] for saddling small countries with unmanageable debt,” Breitbart said.

For Biden, it’s “not just about confronting or taking on China,” one senior White House official told The Washington Times — but that’s a key part. “Until now, we haven’t offered a positive alternative that reflects our values, our standards, and our way of doing business,” the official added.

“Part of the club”

Republicans, for their part, are concerned that Biden’s approach to global politics will allow other countries to take advantage of America in ways former President Donald Trump blocked. Those fears were only heightened when France’s Macron released a statement saying that “it’s great to have a U.S. president part of the club and very willing to cooperate,” as Newsmax reported.

Trump himself fired back:

They were taking advantage of the United States and therefore, of course, they like Biden because now they will be allowed to return to their old ways of ripping off our Country. If I were a leader of these countries, I too would like Biden far better than President Trump.

  4. I think you are right, Shelia. It is so sad. I am convinced that Biden did not win the election and that he was placed in the White House by powerful enemies of our American way of life. They have their rotten agenda in place.

  5. You are so right, Sheila! This country is in big trouble, but so many of the American people are clueless, and they listen to our communist media, and believe the BS that they try to feed us! I said to someone yesterday, that Biden could take a crap in the middle of the street, and the media would put a positive spin on it, like somehow it was good for our country! That is what we are dealing with, a communist media, ignorant American people, and crooked politicians!

  6. If they think the world can get all of its electricity from solar and wind, they are in for a rude awakening. The only alternative is nuclear, and that won’t happen overnight. Shutting down all fossil fuel power plant quickly would be a disaster. It would have to be a phased in process where nuclear can pick up where fossil fuel leaves off. I think politicians must be stupid to think otherwise. I’ve been following this topic for more the 20 years, and none of the “global warming disasters” has happened yet. Yep, they have been scaring people with lies!!!

  10. TIME TO WAKE UP AND DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  11. American people are not ignorant. Problem remains because we get trapped by the frsudulant criminals that steal presidential election, and out one is poor… Weakness of Trump is the main reason he could not set tame against corruption… No proper executive orders. Now he can see Joe Biden acting strong, sweeping his opponents.. How do you feel Mr Donald Trump. You failed us! Pricks, brainless baboons are depriving our country!

  12. I am ashamed of our representatives and congressmen. The idea that they continue to allow this to go on is beyond reason… So very sad.

  13. Emil, obviously you have a major comprehension problem. Donald Trump didn’t fail anybody. The Democrats had such a fraud program set up that it was virtually impossible to catch them immediately although those of us who were watching Election Night 3:00 am saw it in person. If you have the time, go to Mike Lindel’s site and watch all the evidence presented there. 2 & 3 if you don’t want to spend all night. Trump knew what was going to happen and had issued an Executive Order. The Democrats are evil people who obviously hate America. The military asked him to run because they knew he could not be bought.

  14. these are the orders given by the pope you know the man of sin ,climate crisis the new normal fake science.
