The New American quotes CEI’s director of the Center for Energy and Environment, Myron Ebell:
Republicans pushed back at the document for its similarities to the Green New Deal, arguing it would destroy the U.S. economy and usher in an unparalleled amount of government control over Americans’ lives.
Furthermore, GOP lawmakers took issue with Democrats for the release of a partisan report that excluded input from them. “If I had known then what I know now, why did we go through this whole waste of money by putting a committee together, wasting money on staff, and do a dog and pony show with hearings?” Representative Garrett Graves (R-La.) told the Washington Examiner. “You don’t need us to do this. You certainly didn’t need to spend taxpayer funds to do it.”
The blueprint was opposed by conservative groups such as the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. The organization’s director, Myron Ebell, called it a “ridiculously wasteful plan.”
As The New American has reported, the climate-change agenda is a key component in the Deep State’s mission to impose a totalitarian one-world government on mankind as the threat of a climate apocalypse gives them justification to force any and every restriction they want on humanity.
