On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) argued that the Inflation Reduction Act reconciliation bill will have “a negligible amount of impact” on climate because America is only responsible for a small percentage of global emissions.
Tenney stated, “I’m going to be voting a no because there’s not a hell no button. This is — the worst thing you can do is raise taxes in an inflation and create more government bureaucracy and invest in green energy. When you think about it, only about 12% of the CO2 emissions in the world are caused by the United States. This bill is going to make a negligible amount of impact on that. And, if anything, it’s going to put the American people in worse crisis and it’s going to hurt the American people.”
