WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) says Democrats are ready to take action on climate change.
“We are surrounded by evidence of the climate crisis,” Schumer said.
Without action, Schumer warns global warming will be worse than the pandemic.
“COVID was horrible. But if we do nothing on climate, starting within a few short years from now, each year will be worse than COVID, and each year will be worse than the previous year,” Schumer said.
With wildfires, heatwaves, and floods happening, Democrats promise to include a civilian climate corps in their $3.5-trillion infrastructure package.
“I will not pass an infrastructure package that does not reduce carbon pollution at a scale commencement with the urgency of the climate crisis we face,” Schumer said.
The Democrats’ plan would invest in natural climate solutions and clean energy and help ensure resources are used fairly. But many Republicans see it as a step in the wrong direction.
“Most of the Green New Deal stuff would be injurious to Kentucky,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said.
Paul says Democrats are being short-sighted.
“I think we need a broad range of energy sources and if the left gets their way, there will be no coal. But if the left gets their way, there will be no fracking or natural gas as well,” Paul said.
Despite the pushback from Republicans, Schumer is confident the additions to the infrastructure package will pass and benefit Americans.

There won’t be a vaccine for that, so what are you thinking, Chuckie—temperature-controlled moonsuits? Be it dementia, or whatever, every freaking one of you in DC is a mental case. You preach about following the science in regards to COVID—well, newsflash—there is abundant science that climate change is nothing more than a hoax. It is amazing how all of you can believe in the most far-fetched fairy tales of your own manufacturing; yet, substantiated fact and truth goes over your heads.
What is worse than the panicdemic and climate change combined is the asinine idiocy being foisted upon this country by you non-brain-functioning Liberals. You are a plague on this country.
To Democrats, Truth, Facts, Reality and History are all irrelevant,
If the Democrats do not WANT to believe them.
Democrats will just make up their own Truth, Facts, Reality or History to fit what they WANT to believe
or fits into the Con or Deception that they are running at the time.
The dishonorable, dishonest socialist Democrat Party revolves around and its philosophy is based on Control, Hate, Lies, Cons, Deceptions, Immorality and the lack of Integrity, Ethics or Honor. 👿 👿 👿
How’s about Chuck start, by telling EVERYONE IN THE DEM PARTY to
A) Cease flying private jets
B) CEASE driving gas gussling SUVs
C) STOP owning 3+ homes
D) STOP traveling in limos
and E) SHUT THEIR MOUTHS.. They are releasing too much bull!
When Chucky’s mouth opens, nobody should listen!
The global climate warming, cooling, changing advocates, they haven’t really decided what the climate is doing, have been crying wolf for nearly fifty years without any of the horrendous consequences they have predicted. After billions of years of the climate changing, often to extremes, one might think they could be more precise with their predictions than the overall scare tactics lacking concrete evidence to back it up.
Exactly. FIRST it was “WE are gong to hit a new ice age”in the 70s and 80s, which then morphed into global warming.. NOW ITS Climate change..
NOT ONE OF THEIR “dire predictions’, has ever come true.. NOT a single bloody one.
What the moron shummer means is that the treasonous acts by LIEberals over the myth of man-made climate change will make their criminal covid scamdemic actions pale by comparison.
As soon as the irrational fear of Covid starts to subside and the communists feel their power to control people with the “scaredemic” begin to fade, get ready for climate lockdowns, gas, milage and travel tax, astronomical fuel costs to enrich themselves, energy rationing, you name it, all on the prtense of climate change and global warming which as we all know is completely false.
Watch as the idiots on the left embrace this this next lie, support these new restrictions even as China becomes more and more powerful as a result. In addition to racist, bigot, domestic terrorist antivaxer, enemy of the state etc… add climate denier to the list of names they will call anyone who dares to point out the lie or question their authority.
And just watch how the WOKE crowd joins IN on the bullying, to get ‘people to comply’…
“We are surrounded by evidence of the climate crises,” says chuckie the communist. No lie is too big for the communist democrap party. What is really sad is that so many dumbed down products of our public education system believe him.
The China / Fauci gain of function virus “emergency / crisis” trampling of citizen freedom & civil / human rights by Dem Party is just a prelude or trial run to determine willingness of working class citizens to submit to total Dem Party govt tyranny without a fight.
Dem Party has already warned us they consider climate change, manufactured racism, gun rights, voting against Dem Party & admitting & supporting at our expense unlimited millions of illegal & unidentifiable foreign aliens to be “public health & safety emergencies”.
Dem Party intends to create tyranny govt by declaring their agenda items as “emergencies” by which they will issue dictatorial govt mandates that citizens cannot question or object to under penalty of losing their livelihoods & even their rights & freedom from political oppression.
This catastrophic scenario is being sped along by the globalist billionaire tech & media czars that have monopolistic control over public communication preventing citizens from communicating or organizing resistance.
We must somehow gather in the hundreds of thousands to protest / prevent the total takeover of our nation by the Marxist Dem Party.
Sure. He knows shoot. He’s not a scientist at any level. What an *****.
chucky schmucky has never ever had a real job all he does is destroy what ever he touches.
the man is pure hate and has no soul and if he and the left are not stopped america as you and i know it will be a massive dumpster fire.
He must believe that those specs make him look supremely intelligent or headmaster-ish.
