Yes, I get the US Green Party’s emails!!
This one is very telling:
Right now, Democrats in Washington DC are patting themselves on the back for passing the Biden administration’s "Inflation Reduction Act." The bill, a product of months of concessions to members of their own party, was praised by President Biden as "the biggest step forward on Climate ever," but when you look beyond the media hype you see one of the bill’s largest winners: Big Oil.
At the bill’s signing just two days ago, President Biden stated "With this law, the American people won, and the special interests lost." This is all too typical of the gaslighting rhetoric of this administration and its allies in the House and Senate. How can they claim that when this act:
- Opens up thousands of square miles in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska to new oil drilling
- Requires millions of acres of federal land and water to be offered up for new oil and gas leasing
- Fast-tracks new oil pipelines and processing plants, ignoring environmental regulations
- Promotes bogus climate solutions from the oil and gas industry like carbon capture and storage
The Green Party is not afraid to stand up for the truth. Unlike the Democrats, we have no big donors in the fossil fuel industry to buy off our commitment to people and planet. We are the only national party committed to implementing a science-backed, Eco-Socialist Green New Deal. We can make these commitments because we’re not bound to elite funders. We rely on contributions from people just like you! Please give today so we can keep organizing, campaigning, and exposing cowardice and corruption!
Note this bit:
Promotes bogus climate solutions from the oil and gas industry like carbon capture and storage
This proves that they are not concerned about climate change at all; if they were, they would embrace carbon capture, (and for that matter nuclear).
Instead, their real objective is to take away the benefits of modern society, reduce consumption and return society to its pre-industrial roots.
