Saying that Democrats have gone wild with their Biden-Sanders economic plan is understatement. The first topic covered in the Biden-Sanders plan is climate change. It might as well have been written by AOC. It’s that radical:

To reach net-zero emissions as rapidly as possible, Democrats commit to eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035 through technology-neutral standards for clean energy and energy efficiency. We will dramatically expand solar and wind energy deployment through community-based and utility-scale systems. Within five years, we will install 500 million solar panels, including eight million solar roofs and community solar energy systems, and 60,000 made-in-America wind turbines.

The first question I’d have is a simple one. Who’s going to pay for this transformation? In the next paragraph, we get the answer:

Democrats believe that any clean energy infrastructure project financed with federal support, including through the tax code, should come with robust wage and labor requirements. We will build a modern electric grid by investing in interstate transmission projects and advanced, 21st century grid technologies to power communities with clean electricity, including federal support to build sustainable and resilient energy grids in rural America and in tribal areas lacking energy infrastructure. We will reduce methane pollution through robust federal standards and targeted support for repairing and replacing aging distribution systems, which will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, including for the same pipefitters, insulators, and other workers who built the systems in the first place and who know best how to protect our communities from methane pollution.

We the People won’t have a vote on this boondoggle other than this November. The Biden-Bernie brothers will decide since they’re our betters. This is radicalism on steroids:

This means the elimination of fossil fuels. How do you think coal miners in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana will feel about that? Also, that’s the end of mining in the United States because they rely on cheap, reliable fossil fuels. The Virginia pipeline has already been cancelled due to uncertainty.

The things I’ve written about were found on the first 3 pages of the Biden-Bernie Unity Document. It’s a 110-page document. I will be going through the rest of the document and posting the highlights over the rest of the week. I suspect this will be a multi-part series.
