Biden To Deliver Remarks On Climate Crisis Tomorrow


Per a White House statement, President Biden will deliver remarks on tackling the climate crisis during at trip to Somerset, Massachusetts tomorrow.

  • This week has seen speculation that Biden will use executive powers to pursue climate goals following the collapse of the reconciliation talks with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) last week.
  • A White House official told WaPo: “The president made clear that if the Senate doesn’t act to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen our domestic clean energy industry, he will. We are considering all options and no decision has been made.”
  • Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) of the Senate Finance Committee, warned yesterday “while I strongly support additional executive action by President Biden, we know a flood of Republican lawsuits will follow.”
  • If Biden declares a state of emergency he will have access to funds under the Defense Production Act. Biden used this executive order in March to secure supply chains for critical mineral but any executive action pursued by Biden is likely to face opposition from the Supreme Court who last month rolled back White House climate initiatives.
