The Biden Administration is spending $1 billion of taxpayer money from Pres. Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act” on grants “to increase equitable access to trees and green spaces” in urban and community forests.

 

The grants will create “jobs in tree-planting and maintenance” and advance “environmental justice” - all while combating climate change - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said in a press release announcing the $1 billion in grants:

“Whether it’s reducing heat stress or creating jobs in tree-planting and maintenance, this grant funding will support local communities and partners who are working on the ground to advance environmental justice by mitigating the impact of climate change on communities who lack tree cover in urban spaces while giving kids more safe spaces to play outdoors.”:snip:

Predictions:

1. 50% of the funds will disappear into "studies"

2. 25% will go for development of graffiti-proof trees.

3. 10% will be spent on PSAs and other promotional activities.

4. Any trees that actually get planted will cost $20,000 each.

5. Within three years, any trees that got planted will be gone.

6. Democrats will declare the program a smashing success and/or try to blame the whole thing on Trump.
