USA Close to Climate Emergency

Submitted by ub on

A formal climate charge declaration by POTUS opens up new unilateral action by the executive branch to combat climate change.

President Biden is reportedly delivering an ultimatum on climate change: If Congress does not act to combat a fast-warming planet, then then he will tap its own powers to respond to the crisis.

This stops U.S. exports of crude oil and also halts offshore drilling. President Biden can then redirect military funding to the construction of renewable energy projects.

Remember that the former guy diverted more than $18 billion in Pentagon funding to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico?

The presidential executive order also imposes trade penalties on countries that permit deforestation, such as the destruction of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
