There are 5 comments on Joe Biden’s $2 Trillion Climate Plan? BU Scientists Weigh In

  1. Great article! The environment is one of my biggest issues going into this election, and I really appreciate the opinion of our own Terrier scientists on this enormous plan. Thanks for putting this together.

  2. The Biden Climate Plan (obviously not written by Sleepy Joe – btw has ANYONE from the liberal media asked him a question about it that required more than a 5 word answer?) – after you get past the part where he saves the world from combustion engines and overlooks India and China opening a coal fired generation plant at least once weekly – is all about the Benjamins. Where is the money coming from, what kind of bureaucracy is going to run it, and what is the impact on the economy after you shut down all the businesses that depend on combustion fuels – like anyone who uses electricity – because solar and wind are not enough to replace current electric generation sources. How are you to power trains, planes and ships? Regarding Joe’s “union jobs” goal for Climate change, only 10% of US workers are in unions and most of those are in government or teaching. What does this do for the small business which has no union and forms the foundation of our economy?

  3. 2 trillion for climate change plan but you couldn’t afford to fix inner cities this whole time or provide healthcare for us all. OR reduce tuition costs/reduce student debt. Yep. The democratic party sure has everyone’s best interests in mind!

    We get what we deserve :’ )

  4. many of the items in the biden plan are very valid. however, this is only a small part of the money allocation and political projections are dubious. this also has neglected our continuing need for fossil fuels for a long time. natural gas does much for the aims of global control of carbon for us in the atmosphere and it has been shunted aside.
    our grogram is far ahead of china, who it appears, is not interested in this effort. and, the US is not helping them to comply.
    AND, a largest part of the moneys included IN HIS REQUESTED ALLOCATION do not cover the carbon problem.
    this is my opinion. if i have a wrong interpretation of this i would enjoy a discussion of the facts.
