Presentation by a writer with the Environmental Working Group of revcom.us followed by discussion on “Biden's Imperialist Climate Bill: The Devil Lies in the Big Picture”

Some environmentalists herald Biden's Inflation Reduction Act, which contains $369 billion of climate spending measures over the next 10 years, as a "watershed moment, a critical turning point that has changed history" that will bring about a clean energy future. Others in the environmental community say that “while the bill is far from perfect, it is at least a start” that could propel the development of solar, wind, and geothermal renewable energy.

What's really going on?

"When the Biden climate bill is analyzed and measured against
1) the enormity of the problem of global warming caused by the use of fossil fuels;

2) the outsize role that the U.S. has historically played, and continues to play, in heating up the planet;

3) the scale and speed of measures needed to actually cope with this accelerating crisis; and

4) what is not only necessary but actually possible on the basis of a revolution, and a radically new socialist state power and mode of production, as concretized in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America, authored by Bob Avakian—it becomes clear that this legislation falls massively and obscenely short of what is needed. Worse, this climate bill actually prolongs the dependency of the U.S. economy on fossil fuels.

In plain words, this bill is part of the problem of global warming, not the solution."
