President Biden's Clean Energy Executive Action

WASHINGTON -

In reaction to the Biden administration’s announcement that it will use the Defense Production Act to support clean energy, Anusha Narayanan, climate campaign director at Greenpeace USA said:

“President Biden must take action at the scale that science and justice demand. Today’s executive action by the Biden administration to help unlock the potential of clean energy is what we need more of to address the climate crisis, create a better future for our communities, support domestic manufacturers, and aid our allies abroad by weakening the fossil-fueled war in Ukraine. This announcement demonstrates President Biden’s ability to ramp up the transition to renewable energy. Now he needs to go even further by invoking the Defense Production Act across all clean energy sectors, declaring a climate emergency, and addressing the root of the climate crisis by beginning an immediate and equitable phaseout of domestic fossil fuel production.”
