Groups say ‘2023’s climate science claims’ fall ‘far short of reality’

Right-wing climate and energy groups are urging House GOP leaders to go further in their opposition to President Biden’s green energy policies. [Here’s a copy of the letter.]

“In addition to 2023’s climate science claims falling far short of reality and honesty, President Biden’s Green New Deal climate policy agenda is also in rapid meltdown and countdown to disaster,” a letter sent to Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., and Majority Leader Steve Scalise, R-La., said.

The letter was accompanied by a 13-page report arguing that claims made this year about global temperatures rising and events like decreasing monarch butterfly populations were incorrect.

“Not a day seems to go by without news of some sort of EV [electric vehicle] disaster or problem. From the supply chain that includes child slave labor in the Congo and Communist China-sourcing of key materials and parts; to low consumer demand because of high prices, inconvenience and poor performance/failure; to auto industry financial losses, job cuts and labor problems; to the utter waste of taxpayer money through Inflation Reduction Act subsidies and programs, EV’s are becoming a casebook study in the failure of government industrial policy,” one of the highlights in the letter read.

“Taxpayers are subsidizing this disaster at the rate of $50,000 per EV over a 10-year period. This is a gasoline-equivalent subsidy of $17.33 per gallon. Crowning this disaster is that there is not a single chance that EVs will ever improve the climate or environment.”…

[T]he letter’s signatories, which include experts from the Heartland Institute, Energy & Environment Legal Institute, American Energy Institute (AEI), Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC), and Truth in Energy and Climate, suggest Johnson should go further in cracking down on Biden’s agenda.
