Biden Admin to Spend $1-2 Billion in Taxpayer’s Money to Vacuum CO2 from the Sky

The Biden administration is set to spend $1.2 billion in taxpayer money to vacuum carbon dioxide (CO2) from the sky.

Yes, you read that right.

Aside from sending billions to Ukraine and housing illegal migrants, not to mention what they are doing to block out the sun, the current administration is spending money on sucking carbon dioxide out of the sky.

Biden Energy Secretary Granholm boasted about the project to vacuum CO2 from the sky on Friday.

“These two projects are going to build these regional direct air capture hubs,” US Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm told reporters, according to CNN.

“That means they’re going to link everything from capture to processing to deep underground storage, all in one seamless process.”

The New York Times reports:

The Biden administration will spend $1.2 billion to help build the nation’s first two commercial-scale plants to vacuum carbon dioxide pollution from the atmosphere, a nascent technology that some scientists say could be a breakthrough in the fight against global warming but that others fear is an extravagant boondoggle.

Jennifer Granholm, the energy secretary, announced Friday that her agency would fund two pilot projects that would deploy the disputed technology, known as direct air capture.

Occidental Petroleum will build one of the plants in Kleberg County, Texas, and Battelle, a nonprofit research organization, will build the other in Calcasieu Parish on the Louisiana coast. The federal government and the companies will equally split the cost of building the facilities.

The 2021 bipartisan infrastructure law included $3.5 billion to fund the construction of four commercial-scale direct air capture plants. Friday’s announcement covered the first two.

Oil and gas companies lobbied for the direct air capture money to be included in the law, arguing that the world could continue to burn fossil fuels if it had a way to clean up their planet-warming pollution.

Former Vice President Al Gore called air capture technology a “moral hazard” that would enable fossil fuel producers to continue to pollute.

“It’s useful to give them an excuse for not ever stopping oil,” he said. “That gives them a license to continue producing more and more oil and gas.”

The UN said vacuuming the sky of CO2 would be the only way to save the planet from climate change.
