Does Biden's Climate Agenda Mean Green Passports Are Coming?

Joe Biden’s climate agenda, which he announced this week, is such a violation of everything it means to live in a free country that it actually is hard to understand how he thinks he can get away with it.

The plan, announced during a two-day climate summit that began on Earth Day, calls for the slashing of carbon emissions by over half in less than ten years, and the United States becoming a zero-emissions economy by 2050.

While Biden hasn’t released the details of this plan yet, experts say that it will take huge changes to accomplish Biden’s climate objectives. While electric cars currently only make up about 2 percent of new passenger vehicle sales, Biden’s insane objectives reportedly would require electric vehicles to make up 65 percent of new cars and SUVs, along with 10 percent of new truck sales.

If your home is heated by oil or natural gas, you’ll have to get an electric heat pump installed.

Experts say the economic shifts of Biden’s plan will cost Americans trillions of dollars.

Will the government require us to have Green Passports to ensure we don’t go over our carbon-footprint quota? Is that really so far out of the realm of possibility? Remember the Vaccine Passport?

If government officials think they can control your behavior based on whether you’ve been vaccinated, what’s to stop them from using the same idea to limit our carbon footprint to save “the environment”?

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article suggested that Biden’s climate plan may include limits on meat consumption. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack told reporters, “there is no effort designed to limit people’s intake of beef coming out of President Biden’s White House or USDA.”
