Biden official left speechless: fails to explain to John Kennedy how state spending will reduce global temperatures

"You don’t know do ya? You just want us to spend $50 trillion and you don’t have the slightest idea."

This Wednesday, Louisiana Republican Senator John Kennedy left Department of Energy Undersecretary David Turk dumbstruck as they discussed next year's departmental budget request.

The Biden Administration official went before the Senate Appropriations Committee to talk about the budget increase the Department of Energy expects to have to fund the green energy agenda.

Turk explained that he is requesting 38% more in the 2024 budget. However, he failed to answer how spending $50 trillion will reduce global temperatures.

Kennedy began by asking him about the cost of being carbon neutral by 2050, but the official refused to give a number. After this, the Republican senator asked him to estimate the temperature reduction with the requested figure.

"So first of all, it's a net cost; it's what benefits we're having by getting our act together and reducing all of those climate benefits we're seeing," Turk said with apparent nervousness before Kennedy pressed his question.

"I'm gonna ask again, maybe I'm not being clear: if we spent $50 trillion to become carbon neutral by 2050 in the United States of America, how much is that going to reduce world temperatures?" the senator reiterated. However, he could not get a clear answer from the Department of Energy undersecretary, who only insisted that the emissions problem is a global issue and that everything that could be done should be done.

"We're 13% of global emissions," he added later, suggesting the senator do the calculations himself.

"You don't know do ya? You just want us to spend $50 trillion, and you don't have the slightest idea whether it's going to reduce world temperatures," Kennedy said.

After this, David Turk insisted on the importance of the United States leading efforts against climate change to get the rest of the world to act together, but at no time could he comment on the results that could be obtained from such investments.
