Huge statement of intent from Biden 14:28 - Apr 22 with 3777 viewsStokieBlue

Was it expected that he would commit the US to halving their emissions in the next 8.5 years?

That's a huge commitment, one I am surprised they are even able to attempt. I imagine it'll also sent the Republicans into total meltdown.

Also an excellent animation on there showing the emissions of the biggest polluters over time. The rise of China since about 2010 is ridiculous.

Swamp was nearly drained? This is just trolling, isn't it? What's people's thoughts? Time for a rest?


It's never been anything other than trolling.

I'm amazed he's lasted this long, as are many others.

Not bothered either way but I did laugh at the comment, I'd genuinely love to know what parts of the "swamp" were drained.


I was referring to the way Trump got rid of the old established figures in Washington. Looks like I’m might be getting booted out now though so I guess there’s not really any point explaining

Seems odd to get so worked up about the goood old boys in the USA when we have our own charlatan making good PR about holier than thou targets that will be impossible to reach


Then you've missed twelve months plus of that also.

Plus acceptable deaths from Covid and other nonsense.

A swamp being drained, apparently.

Forgive me misunderstanding but wasn't his "drain the swamp" speech more to do with lobbyists than it was to do with "old established figures"?

I thought it was to do with like old staffers. People in the ‘Washington bubble’. That was my understanding anyway.

I said an acceptable level of deaths. Which is exactly what Chris Whitty was saying at the time. That’s very different to how you have spun it.

It was lobbyists, to start with.

Lobbying increased under Trump.

Your understanding was wrong.

Also what you thought was happening didn’t.

At least 187 Trump political appointees had been federal lobbyists.

He created his own swamp, from people working in the previous swamp.

You were objectively wrong.

I don’t think Phil should ban people just because they are ignorant of facts.

If it’s authoritarian and there’s a gulag then you’ll follow too, surely?

It’s a suspension not a ban.

Which will give you more time to read. So Win-Win.

The issue is that blatant falsehoods like "the swamp was very nearly drained" are going to cause people to get annoyed at you. People have had enough of outright lying and thus if you persist down a Trumpian path you can expect to get quite a bit of pushback.

I mean, did you even have a straight face when you wrote it?

It was maybe a little mischievous which I apologise for.
The point I was trying to make, and that I stand by, is that I am in no way a fan of Biden in any sense but I am very much a fan of his work on sustainability.

What you could also look into, is how someone such as yourself, that cares about environmental matters, and also seems to think they know stuff about Trumps swamp draining and US politics, didn’t clock that a former lobbyist for the US Coal industry, was appointed the head of the US EPA, and prosecutions during that time went down.

Like I said it is fine to be ignorant of certain things.

Maybe you should stick around, in order to learn things.

The truth is you don't really know what you think and just say things to provoke. If you are going to post such drivel on here at least do us the favour of understanding what it is you're posting about first.
