WATCH: Biden’s Energy Sec Left SPEECHLESS After This Simple Question…

Must Read

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm faced difficulty in responding to a fundamental inquiry posed by Republican Utah Senator Mike Lee regarding the implications of the Biden administration’s extensive climate agenda. The administration aims to achieve “net-zero” emissions for the entire American economy by 2050 as a means to combat global climate change. Senator Lee sought to ascertain the extent to which this “net-zero” agenda would contribute to reducing global temperatures over time if successfully implemented. However, Secretary Granholm struggled to provide precise estimations regarding the impact on global temperatures, instead focusing on the overarching objectives of the “net-zero” agenda.

“I’d like to get a yes or no answer out of this one, if you can. Yes or no, does the Biden administration support a transition to net-zero?” Lee asked Granholm, who answered yes.

“So, madam secretary, if the United States, consistent with your ambitions, with your plans, with the ambitions of the Biden administration, if it completely transitions over to get to net-zero, exactly how many degrees will global temperatures decrease as a result of moving to net-zero?” Lee asked.

Estimates from Goldman Sachs suggest that President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, a key climate bill, includes subsidies aimed at supporting the growth of green energy initiatives, potentially exceeding $1 trillion in costs.

“Well, we want to keep global temperatures from rising more than one-and-a-half to two degrees, and net-zero is by 2050, so there is time to be able to get there,” Granholm responded. “If we see temperatures rising greater than that, of course, the costs for poor people and for people overall because of these extreme weather events will be catastrophic.”

“OK, but let’s get back to my question: if we get to net-zero, when we get to net-zero, should we get there at some point, if we get there, what impact will that have on global temperatures?” Lee continued.

“As I say, the striving to net-zero is to prevent the temperatures from rising more than one-and-a-half to two degrees,” Granholm reiterated.

“That’s still not the answer to the question. The question is, what impact is that going to have? We have just talked about the fact that it is going to cost $275 trillion to get there, and we have talked about the fact that it’s going to cost the global economy nine or ten trillion dollars a year in order to get there,” Lee responded. “So, what does that buy us? What does that do? Now, you’re saying, yes, we’re trying to not have temperatures increase more than the defined amount that you just described. But what impact does this have? What does it do for global temperatures if we get to net-zero?”

“Perhaps I’m not understanding your question,” Granholm responded. “I think I have answered that, and the whole point is to prevent these extreme and accelerating weather events. We have had year after year of record heat, we’ve had year after year of increased extreme weather events just in this country.”

It remains uncertain whether Granholm was alluding to the federal dataset on “billion dollar disasters” as proof of the escalating impact of climate change. This statistic is commonly used by the Biden administration to support its climate policies. Nonetheless, Protect the Public’s Trust, a watchdog organization, lodged a complaint regarding scientific integrity with the government concerning the dataset in recent weeks. The complaint alleges that the dataset is compiled using non-transparent and unconventional accounting methods.

“Look, I understand the Biden administration’s affinity for blaming everything, including bad weather on Republicans and on climate change, which they always associate together,” Lee said. “I fail to understand how you can definitively say that a complete transition to net-zero is necessary when you don’t even know the impact that it would have on global temperatures. You can’t tell me, sitting here today, what it’s going to do. You tell me what you fear might happen if we don’t do that, you tell me that you think temperatures will increase less if we do do this than if we don’t. I don’t get this.”
