Sen. Joe Manchin is the reason the heart of President Joe Biden’s climate agenda — replacing coal- and gas-fired power plants with wind and solar — might be stripped from the budget bill.
White House May End Up Pretty Embarrassed if They Have to Take Climate Change Out of Budget for Joe Manchin

There are plenty of butt-hurt takes on Manchin, but this one from investigative journalist Amy Westervelt is particularly blunt:
If Manchin isn’t stopped, climate destruction is *ensured*. That’s what we’re talking about here.

I’ve heard the same apocalyptic doom and gloom since the 70’s. Blah blah.

The 1980’s called. They want their climate predictions back.

"Do what I want or you're gonna die" is a sure bet for your side.
Please, keep it up.

The idea that the passage of Joe Biden's tax and spend legislative agenda is the watershed moment in the survival of the planet is so nuts that kids with peanut allergies shouldn't come within 50 feet of this Twitter account. https://t.co/KrHQ0RZvsF

Good. I’d rather destroy the planet than give the government one more ounce of power

Small editorial change needed, Amy:

If “climate destruction” was “ensured,” the activists would be all for nuclear power.
Somehow that never makes the cut though.
Just need more electric cars to prevent certain death!
If you want to invest in renewables, fine, but stop lying to us that we’re going to die. https://t.co/XNmVm0QzBv

Let me guess you’re terrified of climate change but not so scared that you’ll support building more nuclear power plants.
— Guy Incognito (@GuyInco16821140) October 16, 2021
We’ve certainly noticed that nuclear is not part of Biden’s plan to reduce climate change.
No, it’s not what we’re talking about. This is an “investigative reporter.” 😂 https://t.co/gMvMm6v7f5

Going to go full Net Neutrality again because that worked so well the first time. https://t.co/SKgIHc5DGJ

It’s been so long that Net Neutrality killed us all that we forgot we were dead; that and the Trump tax cuts.

Activists kayak to Sen. Joe Manchin’s houseboat and attempt to convince him that $3.5 trillion bill ‘is not spending’ https://t.co/myZYbLwbTi
