“This is what climate leadership looks like. Just one week after the Biden Administration announced the United States will rejoin the Paris Agreement, the President and Vice President are using the power of their office to boldly address the climate crisis.
“President Biden and Vice President Harris understand that big problems call for big solutions. To accelerate the administration’s climate priorities – and set the stage for bolder action – President Biden and Vice President Harris are rightfully using their executive authority to protect public health, accelerate a just transition to a clean energy economy, and prioritize the health and safety of frontline communities impacted by dangerous fossil fuel pollution.
“Climate Reality commends these executive orders, which will place science at the forefront of federal decision-making, protect the integrity of our federal lands and waters, create green jobs, modernize infrastructure, and center environmental justice across the federal government. President Biden and Vice President Harris’s actions will help rebuild the foundations of the federal government’s ability to respond to the climate crisis, and we hope this is just a starting point for the kind of transformative action needed to create a sustainable, resilient, and equitable clean energy economy. The White House’s singular focus on climate today is a welcome and hopeful sign for the future of American leadership on this issue, and we look forward to working with the Biden Administration to build back better.”
