Biden Announces Government Expansion Via Creation of ‘Climate Corps’

The White House will be expanding the size of the federal government through the creation of a newly announced American Climate Corps.

The initiative was announced on Tuesday in a conference call with reporters, according to The Hill.

It seeks to hire 20,000 young people in its first year to promote green energy initiatives and land conservation.

On the call, according to CNN, White House national climate adviser Ali Zaidi said recruits for the program will be “doing the important task of conserving and restoring our lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, deploying clean energy” as well as “implementing energy efficiency technologies that will cut consumer costs for the American people, and advancing environmental justice.”

According to CBS News, the program is “modeled after” the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Depression-era job-creation program of the Roosevelt administration’s New Deal.

However, The Hill reported, a White House participant on the conference call said that while the Civilian Conservation Corps was largely made up of white males, the Climate Corps program is committed to being “diverse.”

“This climate corps will uplift and empower a diverse and inclusive workforce,” the official said, according to The Hill.

It is unclear how much the program will cost taxpayers or who will lead it.

In a social media post published Wednesday to X, the platform formerly called Twitter, President Joe Biden announced that he had created the program through executive action.

Naturally, far-left groups are thrilled. In an interview with The Washington Post, Varshini Prakash, co-founder of the environmental group the Sunrise Movement said the initiative would pay off for Biden with younger voters.

The Sunrise Movement was a key part of getting the radically leftist Green New Deal onto the Democratic agenda, according to a June 2019 report in Politico Magazine.

“I can’t speak on behalf of every single youth voter, but if President Biden continues to take bold climate action like this, I think it could go a long way,” Prakash told the Post. “Young people need to see more policies like this from the administration in the lead-up to the election.”

But the program met with a good deal of skepticism from Biden critics:

An application page was launched on Wednesday morning on the White House website for those seeking to become part of the newly created Climate Corps.

Applicants are told:

“The American Climate Corps will put a new generation of Americans to work conserving our lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, advancing environmental justice, deploying clean energy, implementing energy efficient technologies, and tackling climate change.

“American Climate Corps members will gain the skills necessary to access good-paying jobs that are aligned with high-quality employment opportunities after they complete their paid training or service program.”

Applicants are also prompted to check a series of boxes to gauge their interest in a number of topics, along with being asked to provide their names and contact information.

One box asks applicants if they are interested in “protecting coastal wetlands” while another one asks about an interest in the enhancement of “agricultural systems to protect natural resources.”

The application page tells interested young people that their work will “advance environmental justice.”

The page offers no explanation regarding what environmental justice is.

    Hopefully congress won’t fund it . But I doubt those spineless idiots will get their shit together.

    More government = more taxes =more burdens on the middle class! That’s what demoncrats do! FIRE JOE BIDEN AND THE MINEY GRUBBING DEMOCRATS! TRUMP NOW!

  • Jim Fennell says:

    “environmental justice” is just another woke term used by the socialists to control free-market capitalism in agriculture and mining, and will forward the agenda of the Democrats to control and destroy our economy.
