Rep. Jim Banks from Indiana has just revealed that tucked away in the Senate reconciliation bill is 8 billion dollars to create a sort-of Climate Change police force called the Civilian Climate Corps:
Not kidding: Democrats’ tucked $8 billion in their spending bill for the Biden admin to hire a team of climate change activists, give them police badges and tell them to start enforcing the Green New Deal. This isn’t just crazy—it’s dangerous!

Here’s what Banks says:
This is one of those ideas that when AOC started talking about it a few years ago, the beginnings of the Green New Deal, we all kinda laughed at it because it was so outrageous we thought this would never happen. But it’s a key part of this reconciliation bill to create a climate police department or climate militia from the federal government.
So the federal government will go hire a bunch of climate change activists and give them a badge and tell them to go out and enforce the Green New Deal mandates. Can you imagine how dangerous that would be? The American people already don’t trust federal law enforcement. When they come knocking on your door and go after you for not incorporating the key tenets of the Green New Deal in your family home, you family business, on the family farm, this is really going to get out of control.
I’m so glad that Sinema and Manchin oppose this bill because the more we learn about it, the more we realize the absolute nightmare it would be for the American people if it passes.
