[global network reporter Wang qianrun] according to ABC and USA today, US President Biden signed a new executive order on climate change on the 27th local time. Biden also said that the United States has been waiting too long to deal with the climate crisis, “now is the time to act.”.
27 is white house climate day. “Today is white house climate day, which means it’s White House employment day,” Biden said in a speech at the White House “In my opinion, we have been waiting too long to deal with this climate crisis. We can’t wait any longer. “
Biden added: “we saw it with our own eyes. We feel it. We know that in our bones. Now is the time to act. “
“USA Today” mentioned that Biden also signed administrative orders related to climate change on the same day, including promoting climate change as a national security issue. The executive order is also a follow-up to several climate related executive orders signed by Biden a few days ago, the report said.
McCarthy, Biden’s national climate adviser, said the climate change measures announced by Biden on the same day were also the first step to recover the economy from the new crown crisis. “Right now, in terms of employment, it’s clear that we’re doing this because our economy is stagnant,” McCarthy said. We have a lot of people, millions of people out of work, millions of people worried that they won’t be able to support their families. If you were faced with this situation, what would you do? If you boost the economy, you increase employment opportunities. “
After Biden was sworn in on January 20 local time, he announced a number of administrative measures on that night, including the return of the United States to the Paris Agreement on climate change and the cessation of withdrawal from the World Health Organization.
