The new President of the United States, Joe Biden, was sworn into office on Thursday, January 20th. One of his first orders of business was to sign an Executive Order for the US to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord as he promised he would do many times while running for President.
President Biden will take up where he left off with the Obama administration, where Climate Change was considered a huge priority as the Navy, NASA, and major science organizations agreed that Climate Change was the number one threat to the United States of America.
So what now? You should start to see legislation written and passed by the House and Senate to curb electricity generated Greenhouse gas emissions from coal plants and the transportation industry, The legislation will take a while as everything in government takes longer than anyone thinks, but we should start to see some progress within the next four years of the Biden administration.
Do you think rejoining the Paris Climate Accord will change anything in the US?
