President Biden has implemented a breathtaking array of executive orders to address climate change this week. It is the most radical overhaul of environmental laws in decades. While there is much more to be done, the importance of these immediate steps cannot be underestimated. We applaud the serious nature that these represent. Obviously, the devil is in the details, but it signals a sea change. Don’t dismiss this!
The president plans far-reaching actions to cut carbon emissions, aid polluted communities and shift the nation away from fossil fuels. The administration will treat climate change ‘as the emergency that it is,’ one top adviser says.
