Biden Administration Releases $1 Billion In Funding For, Quote, ‘Tree Equity’
In case you haven't heard, trees are now racist.
The Biden administration is spending up to $1 billion to promote "equitable access to trees," as a way to "advance environmental justice" and fight climate change.
You know that the term' justice' is absolutely meaningless when it gets to the point that planting trees will solve it.
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service is awarding grants to plant trees so it can ‘combat extreme heat and climate change,’ and ‘improve access to nature in cities.’
385 grant proposals were selected from entities “working to increase equitable access to trees” because they “provide for cooling city streets.”
"These investments arrive as cities across the country experience record-breaking heatwaves that have grave impacts on public health, energy consumption, and overall well-being," said Secretary Vilsack. "Thanks to President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, we are supporting communities in becoming more resilient to climate change and combatting extreme heat with the cooling effects of increased urban tree canopy, while also supporting employment opportunities and professional training that will strengthen local economies."
This is part of Biden's “Investing in America agenda to advance environmental justice, generate economic opportunity, and build a clean energy economy nationwide.”
How many trees does it actually take to solve economic opportunity? I guess if that does not tell you the priorities of Bidenomics, I do not know what will.
This is also part of Biden’s Justice40 Initiative, which “works to ensure the overall benefits of certain federal investments reach disadvantaged communities that are marginalized, underserved, and overburdened by pollution and underinvestment.”
“Today’s landmark funding from the U.S. Forest Service will increase urban access to nature, improve air quality, keep city streets cool during sweltering summers, tackle the climate crisis, and create safer, healthier communities in every corner of America,” said John Podesta, Senior Advisor to the President for Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation. “That makes a huge difference for the grandmother who doesn’t have air conditioning, or the kid who has asthma, or the parent who works outside for ten hours a day. This investment will create not just greener cities—it will create healthier and more equitable cities.”
Biden really has his priorities straight. I am sure that people living in urban areas are most concerned about the amount of trees and shade they have.
I highly doubt that $1 billion can be used more wisely. This is obviously the most pressing issue average Americans are facing.
And the play on words is so ridiculous. To claim that the reasons urban areas have less trees is some sort of injustice is one of the dumbest things I have ever heard. Urban areas literally mean that a lot of people and buildings are close together. Obviously, if you have more buildings, you have less trees.
But progressives just dance around words in order to make everything racist and evil these days.
I guess, as long as the money goes to fighting evil trees, we should all be happy.
