(FOX NEWS) – President Biden is set to take “aggressive action” Wednesday to tackle climate change and is expected to take a number of executive actions focused on jobs, “equitable” clean energy and “restoring” scientific integrity across the federal government.
The order will expand on his move last week to rejoin the Paris climate agreement. His review of “harmful rollbacks of standards” that protect air, water and communities is set to direct federal agencies to “eliminate fossil fuel subsidies as consistent with applicable law and identify new opportunities to spur innovation, commercialization, and deployment of clean energy technologies and infrastructure.”
On the campaign trail, Biden called for the U.S. to phase out its dependence on fossil fuels.
Biden’s order on Wednesday is set to “empower” American workers and businesses to “lead a clean energy revolution” that would achieve a carbon pollution-free sector by 2035, while putting the U.S. on an “irreversible path to a net-zero economy by 2050.”
