While the environmental policy goals of Extinction Rebellion are closely aligned with President Joe Biden and the Democrat Party, the radical eco-activist group is questioning their support for the incumbent president. “President Biden must prove his commitment to preventing further climate catastrophe,” the eco-activists state on their website. The group demands that Biden end “all fossil fuel projects, [ensure] a just and immediate transition to renewable energies, and [end] fossil fuel subsidies.”
Earth is in crisis. Fossil fuels are choking humanity. To avoid climate hell we have to stop building new fossil fuel infrastructure – NOW. But @WashingtonGas plans to spend $5bn on new fossil fuel pipes. And @councilofdc is letting them get away with it.#StopFossilFuels pic.twitter.com/tSsshCcKQF

According to a CBS News/YouGov poll on Friday, “climate change” is at the bottom of a list of priorities for Americans.
As Breitbart News’ Wendell Husebø reports, “The poll found that “climate change” was last on the list of most important priorities for Americans. Respondents ranked the economy (76 percent), inflation (73 percent), crime (59 percent), Ukraine (58 percent), immigration (48 percent), and then “climate change” (39 percent) in respective order of importance.”
