Biden to issue mandates, executive orders on climate: Media Miss
To reach his goal and reduce emissions by 50% by 2030, President Biden plans to issue executive orders and climate mandates that affect cars and trucks.
This is all according to John Kerry–the special envoy for climate.
In an interview with Yahoo News, Kerry said these are in addition to the Inflation Reduction Act, which aims to reduce emissions by 40%.
He also called on corporations to contribute to the effort in order to reach net-zero emissions in 2050.
Now, if you’re wondering about your gas stove, based on social media speculation earlier this year…Kerry said such a ban isn’t necessary right now to reduce emissions.
However, in New York State, a proposal to ban gas stoves looks like it could pass in the near future.
President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act last year, and it included $369 billion in spending to address climate change through clean energy incentives.
It imposes a charge on oil and gas companies’ methane emissions.
But, the legislation also needed to support those industries, to a certain extent, in order to pass.
So the Inflation Reduction Act bolstered gas and oil development by leasing public land for new projects and streamlined project permitting.
However, the net carbon emissions from all that isn’t quite enough to reach Biden’s goal.
