Activists who believe President Biden’s climate change agenda does not go far enough protested Thursday by dumping wheelbarrows of cow manure in front of the White House.
As the activists did so, the Hill reported they chanted “Stop the bullshit” and “Declare climate emergency now.”

Biden spoke of his agenda Thursday to cut greenhouse gas emissions “by 50 to 52 percent of 2005 levels by the year 2030,” saying, “Meeting this moment is about more than preserving our planet. It’s about providing a better future for all of us.”
Biden also called it “a moment of peril but a moment of opportunity… The signs are unmistakable. The science is undeniable. The cost of inaction keeps mounting,” the Associated Press reported.
However, Breitbart News reported, “radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) relaunched the Green New Deal on Earth Day Eve by suggesting climate change is caused by racial injustice.”
“The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost,” she said.
Many radical Democrats “are calling on Biden to do more, arguing that the U.S. should aim for a reduction of at least 70 percent,” the Hill reported.
