One of CTUP’s top priorities this year is to persuade every Fortune 500 company to repudiate their endorsement of “Net Zero” – which would reduce America’s fossil fuel use from 80% today to zero over the next 10 to 15 years. It is a policy that would decimate the American economy, lead to the loss of tens of millions of jobs, and easily double the number of families living in poverty. Other than that, this war against energy is a great idea.
Democrats, including the guy in the White House, don’t get this. But amazingly, on the other side of the pond the British Labour Party DOES acknowledge that Net Zero is a cyanide pill for working-class union families.
This week Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition British Labour Party, announced he is dropping his party’s 2021 plan to spend 28 billion pounds ($35 billion) on making Britain’s national electric grid carbon-free, should he win elections this year. It turns out policies like banning air conditioning and the eating of meat and ending coal and gas production aren’t so popular with the working-class men and women of Britain.
It’s official: the Democrats in America are now to the LEFT of the British Labour Party! Republicans should be shouting from the rooftops that the radical green agenda is an assault by rich elites against struggling working-class families.
