President Biden has outlined an ambitious agenda to transform the United States from a country that depends significantly on fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas, to one that operates almost completely on clean, largely renewable energy. The effort is in response to the scientific consensus that climate change is having a damaging impact on the United States and the world. Biden’s plan would cut greenhouse gas emissions, which are raising the planet’s average temperature and sea levels and contributing to severe weather.
