Biden needs to signal one other far-reaching regulation on local weather change

President Joe Biden is expected to sign another executive order addressing climate change and environmental issues such as jobs, "fair" clean energy, and "restoring" scientific integrity across the federal government.

These President's actions will bring Biden's previous climate executive ordinances in line, which re-committed the United States to the Paris Agreement.

The ordinance will also review "harmful rollbacks and standards" to protect air and water and instruct federal agencies to "remove fossil fuel subsidies in line with applicable law and identify new opportunities to drive innovation, commercialization and use of clean energy technologies." and infrastructure.

Biden promised action on climate change

During the 2020 campaign season, then-candidate Joe Biden called on the US to end its dependence on fossil fuels.

Biden's order on Wednesday is to "empower American workers and businesses to lead a clean energy revolution." The aim would be to achieve a zero-carbon sector by 2035 and an irreversible path to a net-zero economy by 2050.

In the area of ​​national security, Biden had won the former Secretary of State John Kerry as “special envoy for the climate” and even accepted him into the National Security Council.

Which “better cut back” jobs are more important?

The Biden government insists that the new PO "is in line with the objectives of the Better Jobs Reconstruction and Restoration Plan" and that clean energy jobs are a "central pillar" of the plan.

But not everyone seems to be on Build Back Better.

Guy Williams, who has worked in the energy industry for 53 years, stated that the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline would leave him unemployed.

He told Fox News Channel's Steve Doocy, "It's like a kick in the stomach that knocks the wind out of you." Williams continued, "We've waited 10 years for this pipeline."

The termination wiped out approximately 13,000 high-paying union jobs in the United States and Canada.

The move drew harsh criticism from unions, which strongly supported Biden in the presidential election.

A statement from the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) stated that they were "disappointed" with Biden's decision and that the move will "kill thousands of well-paying #UNION jobs". LIUNA approved Biden in October.

The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters said, "Unfortunately, the Biden government has now made thousands of union workers unemployed."

Some Democrats may regret the vote on climate change

Congress has also taken steps to take action against climate change.

Last year, House Democrats passed H.R.9, which would have obliged the US to adhere to the provisions of the Paris Agreement.

In states where many jobs are dependent on oil and natural gas, multiple seats in the House of Representatives could be at risk and vacant in 2022 due to the Biden order.

Fox reports that Republicans are already using it as a campaign strategy.

Among those who voted for H.R.9 are Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia and Rep. Vincente Gonzalez of Texas. Both are Democrats and won re-election by less than 3%.

Other House Members who voted for H.R.9 include Democratic Reps Susan Wild, Conor Lamb, and Matt Cartwright, all of Pennsylvania.

In Texas, Democratic representatives Henry Cuellar, Colin Allred and Filemon Vela voted in favor.

Any Democrats who might still seem moderate, like West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, are put between what they know is bad for their states and have to resent their party's left wing.

AOC and the "troop" are pushing Biden to the left on the climate

But Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the rest of their "team" don't seem to care about displaced union workers who helped Joe Biden win in November.

Before the election, she urged Biden to approve the New Green Deal if it is elected.

"The climate is now a top three issue for voters across the country and it is time our Congress and administration did so," she said while reaching out to supporters outside of DNC headquarters. She continued, "It's long gone."

It has also warned the Biden government rather bleakly to keep its promise on climate change issues.

The youngest member of the squad, Cori Bush (D-MO), also interfered before accepting the need for “courageous leadership”.

"If we don't act, people who look like me will die. So now there is no alternative but to make sure we have courageous leadership," said Bush.

I'm fighting to put communities like St. Louis at the center of the clean energy revolution.
