Biden to announce climate actions at ex-coal plant in Mass.

By SEUNG MIN KIM and MATTHEW DALY

 

SOMERSET, Mass. (AP) — President Joe Biden will announce new actions on climate change that he can take on his own just days after an influential Democratic senator quashed hopes for a sweeping legislative package of new environmental programs this year.

Biden is to unveil the latest efforts during a visit on Wednesday to a former coal-fired power plant in Somerset, Massachusetts, that is shifting to offshore wind manufacturing. It’s the embodiment of the transition to clean energy that Biden is seeking but has struggled to realize in the first 18 months of his presidency.

Wednesday’s executive actions include new initiatives to bolster the domestic offshore wind industry as well as a continuation of efforts to help communities cope with soaring temperatures through programs administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Health and Human Services and other agencies, according to a White House official.

    More offshore wind farms, Joe?

    Does federal government have the express power in the Constitution to blanket the East Coast with offshore wind farms? If it does not but doing it anyway is usurpation of Bill of Rights Tenth Amendment which the framers included as a condition of signing on to a Constitution. The federal government has the duty to do the right thing and limit its acts delimited by the framers and notwithstanding its power to do a wrong thing by ignoring the framers. The Tenth Amendment is incorporated by reference into the Constitution by the Latin maxim expressio unius est exclusio alterius meaning powers expressed excludes all others not expressed and of like or unlike kind, same reserved to the people or the States. It also applies to abortions, voting rights, the domestic terror bill, and wind farm federal executive orders, or legislation.

      correction, skaky or shakey names, not Vetriloquist or Ventriooquist. Also, “offshore” includes offshore East Coast, offshore West Coast, and offshore Gulf of Mexico, all owned or controlled by the immediately adjacent States or people thereof, to international waters, under the Tenth Amendment, not one iota owned or controlled by the Federal government under the US Constitution. Further, respectfully signing out.

    An iota is something very small. An iota is the smallest letter of the Greek alphabet. The expression “not one iota” comes from the Bible (Matthew 5:18): “For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.”
