Kudlow: The Bidens have utterly perverted NEPA’s mission
‘Kudlow’ host provides insight on the history of Earth Day.
Happy Friday, everyone. Now you probably don't know this, but today is Earth Day! The reason you don't know it is probably because you have to look long and hard to find any reference to Earth Day.
The non-coverage of this non-event is, we'll call it, "earth shattering." Now CNN is covering Earth Day and in fact they've got their own little earth week going. It figures, doesn't it?
There's a brutal story in the Washington Examiner that reminds us that the founder of Earth Day, a very smart ivy-league graduate, unfortunately murdered his former girlfriend. Authorities in Philadelphia had to chase him all over the globe. They found the girlfriend's corpse in a trunk in the guy's apartment and after many years they tracked him down when he was then tried, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. Just saying.

FreedomWorks vice president reflects on Earth Day on ‘Kudlow.’
It's worth noting that Earth Day began in 1970, which is when the National Environment Protection Act was passed, called NEPA, and also the Environmental Protection Agency, called EPA.
All this under Republican President Richard Nixon. And you know what folks? Over the last five decades, the United States has made tremendous progress regarding its dealings with the planet Earth. Right now, in the present, the U.S. has the cleanest air and the cleanest water and the lowest carbon emissions of any major country on this planet, Earth.
So, if any of you want to attribute these remarkably positive achievements to the inception of Earth Day, even though the founder killed his girlfriend and put her in a trunk, I'm OK with it!
That is, I'm OK with the progress of clean air and clean water. I do not recommend killing your girlfriend and putting her in the trunk.
All that said, the key point is, we simply do not have some kind of existential climate risk crisis, despite what virtually every person in the Biden administration, from the top on down, keeps telling us. As far as an existential climate risk, that is a big lie.
Just recently, the Bidens have taken NEPA, which has served some useful purposes down through the years, and utterly perverted its mission. NEPA is the environmental gate that opens the door to all sorts of important infrastructure in this country.
