White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told Fox News’ Peter Doocy last week that despite Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the United States would still be working with Vladimir Putin in “key areas,” such as the Iran deal and climate change. Climate envoy John Kerry has also expressed his concern about the carbon footprint of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and hopes that the conflict doesn’t distract the world from focusing on climate change.
This tweet is from Monday but it’s still a preview of tonight’s State of the Union speech by President Joe Biden. We’ve seen reports that Biden is going to give Build Back Better a rest, and one of the things that’s reportedly going to take its place is climate change. Biden had said many times that Build Back Better would not only cost zero dollars despite adding trillions to the national debt but that it would curb inflation as well. Now he’s going to pitch the idea that “green spending” is the way to fight rising prices.

It looks like the Green New Deal is back on the table again.
Nothing cuts prices like additional massive government spending programs.

"would save roughly $500 a year in energy costs in 2030". $500 in 2030 will buy a loaf of bread at the rate we're going.

F*cking moron! Gas prices aren’t high enough for democrats or what?!

The one thing that will hurt prices even more is green spending.

There’s NO way the Senate is approving money for Biden’s green fantasy. Making it an issue will seal the losses for Dems in the fall.

Green Energy REQUIRES riding prices in fossil fuels.
Biden really wants to drop his approval ratings to single digits, doesn’t he?

He’s going to be a boat anchor for his party by the midterm…

If he does that he’s going below 37%. Working class Americans need relief now.

Yes green energy always makes things cost less.

Manipulation of the crisis to expand on technology that isn't ready.

Where are all of those great-paying, unionized green jobs building solar panels? We’re old enough to remember when Van Jones was Barack Obama’s green jobs czar, and that went nowhere.
So he’s got nothing

Worse than nothing.

I hope he leans hard into this for the midterms.

Sure, I love to buy things twice. Build it with our tax dollars and sell it to us for a profit.

Joe Biden was for the Green New Deal before he was — VERY quickly — AGAINST it at the debate (AOC tries to explain) https://t.co/M4vY3Kelug
