My message today is loud and clear: Since Congress is not acting on the climate emergency, I will.
And in the coming weeks my Administration will begin to announce executive actions to combat this emergency.

Is Joe Biden really going to issue a “climate emergency” less than a week after flying thousands of miles to Saudi Arabia to beg OPEC for oil?

Declaring a climate emergency would enable Biden to unleash sweeping actions to restrain greenhouse gas production. But some of those steps would be politically explosive.
Many of Biden’s supporters in Congress are urging him to go bold nonetheless.https://t.co/1lVtp4UcUE

Please note Biden Calls Climate ‘an Emergency’.
President Biden said he considered the environmental risks created by climate change to be “an emergency” and signaled plans to use his presidential powers “to turn these words into a formal, official government action.”
“Let me be clear: Climate change is an emergency,” Mr. Biden said, adding that he plans to announce formal actions in the “coming weeks.”
“Since Congress is not acting as it should,” Mr. Biden said, he considered climate change “an emergency. And I will—I will look at it that way.”
Gina McCarthy, Mr. Biden’s top climate adviser, told reporters aboard Air Force One that the administration would be rolling out a number of climate-related executive actions in the coming weeks.
“We’re not ready to give up on our strong goals. We’re going to double-down to make sure we get those,” she said. “And while it’s disappointing that Congress couldn’t get it over the finish line, that in no way precludes the president from using the full range of his executive authorities to get us to where we need to go.”
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
