The guy has topped himself. Yes boys, today he has realized as President he has access to billions of dollars. No, not China money or Ukraine or Russian. He has access to your money, the tax payers. Says he is gong to put it to good use, Seems his idea is that every single military vehicle will powered by an environmentally safe engine. That's right folks we are about to send our best and brightest off to war in ships, planes, and ground vehicles with what? Well solar panels on the roof, maybe a wind sail, batteries that have to be recharged what, every 2 miles for a tank? This guy is nuts, totally bat shit crazy. How would you feel sending our soldiers out to fight the mother of all battles but they had to fight in machines bound to lose the war and kill our military along the way.
"One of the things I found out as President of the United States, I get to spend a lot of that money," Biden said. "We’re going to start the process where every vehicle in the United States military, every vehicle, is going to be climate-friendly — every vehicle — I mean it."
metmike: Have we all lost our minds! This would be like in the middle of a drought, telling irrigated corn farmers in Nebraska in June "we will help you by banning any irrigation to crops this Summer in NE and create a new high tax on all the corn plants because they are using up water in the soil!"
Not only is the fake green energy very unreliable and diffuse........it F's up the environment 10 times worse than fossil fuels! It's a lose, lose, lose situation.........with only the big money in the solar and wind industries reaping windfall profits but mostly, this is about politicians that receive benefit............and are motivated by monetary and political incentives NOT science, NOT common sense, NOT energy laws, NOT authentic environmentalism but self serving motives:

As an environmentalist, I would see the reasoning.......... if it actually helped the environment. But it WRECKS the environment and kills wildlife.
It is totally counter productive, with the exception of the people who make money/get self serving benefits from it and during a climate optimum that has been manufactured to be a climate crisis!
