Sen. Lee Flummoxes Energy Secretary With Simple Climate Question

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm struggled to answer a basic question from Republican Utah Sen. Mike Lee about the effects of the Biden administration’s massive climate agenda on Tuesday.

The Biden administration has a stated goal of having the entire American economy reach “net-zero” emissions by no later than 2050 to fight global climate change. Lee asked Granholm how much the administration’s “net-zero” agenda will bring down global temperatures over time if realized in full, but Granholm could only manage to describe the broader purpose of the “net-zero” agenda rather than specific projections for changes in global temperatures.
