There’s a lot of things that our 46th president Joe Biden has promised. Such as 100 million doses of vaccine administered in his first 100 days of office, his support for a national minimum wage of $15 an hour due to the pandemic, and also to get rid of the restrictions that Trump put in place. But most importantly his administration is promising ambitious emissions targets – net zero carbon emissions by 2050 - and putting the US back into the Paris climate accord. He is planning to invest 2 trillion in clean air technology like solar and wind. Along with the other things he has promised to our country, this shows a great deal of commitment. Joe Biden knows and understands that there is no greater challenge facing our country. That’s why he has created a vivid plan – a Clean Energy Revolution – to address this grave threat and lead the world in addressing the climate emergency.
Key Factors To Joe Biden’s Plan
He will ensure the U.S achieves a 100% clean energy economy and reaches net-zero emissions no later than 2050, build a stronger and more tough nation, rally the rest of the world to meet the ultimatum of climate change, stand up to the misuse of power by polluters who unreasonably distress communities of color and low income communities, attain our obligation to workers and communities who powered our industrial revolution and following decades of economic growth, also the Biden plan will make a significant investment in our clean energy future and environmental equity.
Bidens Day One Unprecedented Executive Actions to Drive Historic Progress
Biden realizes that they must go further, rapid and more harder than ever before. Which means they need to do a lot in order for this to happen. Such as, requiring aggressive methane pollution limits for new and existing oil and gas operations, using the Federal government procurement system-which spends $500 billion every year- to drive towards 100% clean energy and zero-emissions vehicles. Also, ensuring that all U.S government installations, buildings and many facilities are more efficient and climate-ready, harnessing the purchasing power and supply chains to drive innovation. He also plans to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation- the fastest growing source of U.S climate pollution- by maintaining and applying the existing Clean Air Act, and developing rigorous new fuel economy standards aimed at ensuring 100% of new sales for light- and medium- duty vehicles will be electrified and annual improvements for heavy duty vehicles. He also plans on requiring public companies to disclose climate risks and the greenhouse gas emissions in their operations and supply changes. But mostly protecting America’s natural treasures by permanently protecting the Arctic National Wildlife refuge and other areas impacted by Presidents Trump's attack on federal lands and waters, establishing national parks and monuments that reflect America’s natural heritage, banning new oil and gas permitting on public lands and water, adjusting royalties to account for climate costs, and setting up targeted programs to enhancing replanting and develop renewable on federal lands and waters with the goal of magnifying offshore wind by 2030.
To sum up everything that has been stated: learning and hearing about all the things Biden will do for our nation is relieving and bewildering. Also learning things in detail about how he will conquer and do is astonishing. His plan includes $174 billion in spending to boost the electric vehicle market and sift away from gas-powered cars, it also includes $100 billion in funding to work on this country’s eclectic grid and make it more resilient to climate catastrophes. It's going to be interesting to see how he will handle whatever happens to our nation throughout the years.
