A strong record for the President
President Biden continues to deliver on his climate & environmental pledges as outlined by the National Climate Task Force. The Biden Administration’s goals include:
- Reducing U.S. greenhouse gas emissions 50% below 2005 levels in 2030
- Reaching 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035
- Achieving a net-zero emissions economy by 2050
- Delivering 40% of the benefits from federal investments in climate and clean energy to disadvantaged communities
Not only is the President setting ambitious goals that are critical for combating climate change, he and Democrats in Congress are delivering on them too:
“Passed in August 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act is the most significant legislation in U.S. history to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen American energy security. It will lower energy costs for households, saving families hundreds of dollars per year on energy bills; create millions of good-paying jobs for American workers through manufacturing of solar panels, wind turbines, and electric vehicles; and deliver a healthy future for our children and grandchildren by cutting pollution and advancing environmental justice. The savings, jobs, and other benefits provided by this legislation will reach communities across the country.
Additionally, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides historic resources for upgrading the power grid, improving public transit and investing in zero-emission transit and school buses, installing a nationwide EV charging network, cleaning up legacy pollution, replacing lead pipes and delivering clean water. President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will also strengthen the nation’s resilience and save taxpayer money, helping communities safeguard against extreme weather events, catastrophic wildfires, and other climate-related disasters—which last year caused more than $150 billion in damages from the biggest 20 weather and climate disasters alone.”
It is critical that we, as local Charleston Democrats, recognize and celebrate these critical accomplishments from our elected Democratic leaders. If a voter cares about our protecting our environment or combating climate change, they should be voting Democratic. Too often Lowcountry Republicans are given the benefit of the doubt, gaining support from local environmental groups, because they’ll do the minimum on land conservation and anti-pollution measures – all while doing nothing to address the roots of climate change and enabling climate deniers in state and national leadership.
This Earth Day, lets recommit ourselves to electing leaders, like President Biden, who understand the science and are willing to take bold action to protect our planet.
