MUST READ: The Anatomy of a Boondoggle – The Green New Deal vs. Family Farms
Guest post by former Congressman Steve King
President Benjamin Harrison signed the Indian Appropriations Act in 1889 and on April 22, at high noon, a gunshot triggered the race for 2 million acres of land. The Oklahoma Land Rush was on! One hundred and thirty fours years later, on August 16, 2022, President Biden unleashed a beast when he signed the inaptly monikered amendment to Biden’s Build Back Better bill—the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)—and the CO2 rush for taxpayer gold was on!
Like most moments of high drama triggered by parchment and pen; the origins, motives, dynamics, and players are behind the curtains pulling the levers and manipulating the machinery of government. The beast we battle is the Green New Deal, the progeny of the European Green Deal, nurtured and likely conceived in Davos, Switzerland, at Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF). There the infamous enemy of a lawful civil society, George Soros, is regularly front and center.
Rubbing elbows between Schwab and Soros, we find Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, the largest investment firm in the world, controlling over ten trillion dollars of global investments. Fink is also on the Board of Trustees of the WEF, on the board of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Tsinghua University…in Beijing. Carbon indexes, Cap-and-trade and CO2 credits are always on this globalist’s tool belt,“I believe the decarbonizing of the global economy is going to create the greatest investment opportunity of our lifetime.”. Larry Fink’s BlackRock provides the investment capital driving the 1300 mile Heartland Greenway CO2 Carbon Capture Use and Sequestration (CCUS) Project.
Bruce Rastetter, CEO of Summit Carbon Solutions, is the other major player in the race for hundreds of billions of We the People’s tax dollars. His proposal is to build 2000 miles of high pressure CO2 pipeline. Summit would then pump its CO2 into deep wells near the oil fields by Bismarck, North Dakota. BlackRock’s destination for the liquid CO2 would be deep wells near the oil fields south of Springfield, IL.
Summit proposes to collect 12 million metric tons of CO2 from 32 ethanol plants in five states. BlackRock would collect 15 million metric tons from 21 ethanol plants https://heartlandgreenway.com/. A third and shorter pipeline system is proposed by Wolf, a Canadian company. The Wolf proposal is for 280 miles of high pressure CO2 pipeline collecting 12.6 million metric tons of CO2. Their destination for deposit would be near that of BlackRock’s.
On a hot summer day in 1988, Dr. James Hansen’s testimony before Congress predicted serious impact for all the biology of a warming planet. Hansen’s testimony is credited in the United States with launching the Global Warming
