Biden Set To Sign Another Far-Reaching ‘Climate Change’ Executive Order

Editor’s Note: This article has been updated with jobs numbers about the Keystone cancellation.

President Joe Biden is set to sign another executive order that will address climate change and issues related to the environment, such as jobs, “equitable” clean energy, and “restoring” scientific integrity throughout the federal government.

These actions by the president will dovetail Biden’s previous executive orders on climate, which recommitted the United States to the Paris Climate Accords.

The order will also review of “harmful rollbacks and standards” that protect air, water, and will direct federal agencies to “eliminate fossil fuel subsidies as consistent with applicable law and identify new opportunities to spur innovation, commercialization, and deployment of clean energy technologies and infrastructure.”

Perhaps most drastic, the White House will establish that climate change will be an essential element of national security.

Biden Promised Cimate Change Action

During the 2020 campaign season, then-candidate Joe Biden called for the U.S. to phase out its dependence on fossil fuels.

Biden’s order on Wednesday is said to, “empower American workers and businesses to lead a clean energy revolution.” The goal would be to achieve a carbon pollution-free sector by 2035, and “an irreversible path to a net-zero economy by 2050.”

On the national security front, Biden had tapped former Secretary of State John Kerry to serve as “special envoy for climate” and even added him to the National Security Council.

Which ‘Build Back Better’ Jobs Are More Important?

The Biden administration insists that the new EO is “consistent with the goals of the President’s Build Back Better jobs and recovery plan” and that clean energy jobs are a “central pillar” of the plan. 

But not everyone seems to be included in “Build Back Better.”

Guy Williams, who has worked in the energy industry for 53 years, found out that he would be unemployed by the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

He told Fox News Channel’s Steve Doocy that, “It’s like a kick in the stomach that knocks the wind out of you.” Williams went on to say that, “We’ve waited on this pipeline for 10 years.”

The cancellation wiped out approximately 13,000 high paying union jobs in the United States and Canada.

The official jobs numbers are disputed, but TC Energy claims 1,000 jobs are full-time, and thousands of others are temporary.

The move brought sharp criticism from labor unions who heavily supported Biden in the presidential election.

A statement from the Laborers’ International Union of North America, or LIUNA, stated they were “disappointed” in Biden’s decision, and said that the move, “will kill thousands of good-paying #UNION jobs.” LIUNA had endorsed Biden in October.

The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters stated that, “Sadly, the Biden administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work.”

Some Democrats Could Regret Climate Change Vote

Congress has also made moves to take action on climate change.

In the House last year, Democrats passed H.R.9, which would have required the U.S. to stick with the Paris Accords provisions.

In states where many jobs are dependent on oil and natural gas, several House seats may vulnerable and up for grabs in 2022 due to Biden’s executive order.

Fox reports that Republicans are already using it as a campaign strategy.

Among some of those who voted for H.R.9 are Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia and Rep. Vincente Gonzalez of Texas. Both are Democrats and won re-election by less than 3%. 

Other House members who voted for H.R.9 include Democrat Reps. Susan Wild, Conor Lamb, and Matt Cartwright, all from Pennsylvania.

In Texas, Democrat Reps. Henry Cuellar, Colin Allred, and Filemon Vela all voted in favor.

Any Democrats who might still appear moderate, such as West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, are being put in between what they know to be bad for their states, and having to draw ire from the left wing of their party.

AOC And The ‘Squad’ Pushing Biden Left On Climate

But Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the rest of her ‘squad’ don’t seem to care about displaced union workers who helped Joe Biden to victory in November.

Prior to the election, she demanded that Biden approve the New Green Deal if elected. 

“Climate is now a top-three issue for voters across the country and it is about time that our Congress and our administration starts acting like it”, she stated while addressing supporters outside of the DNC Headquarters. She went on to say, “It’s way past time.”

She has also gone on to give a pretty dire warning to the Biden administration to “keep their promise” on climate change issues.

Newest squad member Cori Bush (D-MO) also weighed in prior to her swearing in on the need for “bold leadership.”

“When we don’t act, people who look like me die. And so there is just no alternative right now than to make sure we have bold leadership,” Bush claimed.

  • Now, my wife believes this would be 20, because the children is the wilderness under 20 were the only ones allowed to go into the Promise Land, other than Joshua & Caleb.
    One Sunday morning in 1999, I was seated in the far left back of the sanctuary in Glen Avon, CA. while Pastor Johnny Bunch was speaking from the far-right front… He suddenly stops, he took one step in my direction, and pointed at me, and the Holy Spirit spoke through Pastor Bunch’s lips saying, “If you are a born-again Christian living in the city of Sodom or Gomorrah when God allows their destruction, than God’s promise to you is, He will take you up in the blink of an eye.” No one else saw nor heard this said to me… God’s promise it still good for all who have accepted Christ Jesus as their LORD and Savior.  
    We are about to go Home, whether we be raptured prior to these next two major attacks, only God knows for sure… But for sure we need not fear nor worry. 
    Oh, if I have not said before, any lie spoken about the works of the Holy Spirit would be blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, and that I will not do.

  • Yes, we have been the most blessed of all nations since the failure of Israel disobedience to God’s desires of them, and the reason that God blessed the U.S. so greatly was because He knew He would use the U.S. to bless the nation of Israel for these past 72 years. 
    But having become the greatest of all nation end most definitely on January 22, 1973 if not soon, when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Roe vs Wade Bill, no nation can be consider great that allows this slaughter.
    Since that day the United States has been on the downhill slide and her destruction is a certainty; but the real truth here is, her destruction was written about approximately 2000 years ago in the Book of Revelation as God the Holy Spirit guided the hand of the Disciple John on the island of Patmos.  

     The United States has become a stench within God’s nostrils for the many abominations against His WORD. God does not take joy from having to avenge the blood of those that we have allowed to be slaughtered within our borders by abortion. BUT, God is Holy, Righteous, and Just in all His ways, and as such His Laws requires that vengeance must be served, as for those that have accepted, His Son, Christ Jesus as their LORD and Savior, He will take care of us.
    Please, for a few minutes consider this, the destruction of the five cities on the Plains of Jordan… All cities I know of have many children from ages of day one of conception (It is a gift of life) to the age of accountability. Now, my wife bel

  • So our great climate leader John Kerry said "if the US goes to zero emissions it will have no effect on climate change".So let's kill the jobs and make the US dependant of foreign oil so we can continue the middle east wars

  • I couldn't agree with you more! By the end of this year, the country will have buyer's remorse except ,of course, the 20 some million illegal aliens already here but also the caravan of hundreds of thousands on their way up from Honduras. The hundreds of millions we will spend just on illegal immigration, could be used to help American citizens and likely minimize the need for much of the social safety nets we currently supply with vast sums of money.

  • he also stated, matter of factly, that when, not if he is elected, he would cure the virus. has he done that yet?

  • What has to be, has to be. God's WORD warns us that the shedding of innocent blood desecrate the land, and the land will require a cleansing.
    The slaughter of approximately 70 million babies has definitely desecrated all of these United States land, and God will allow the cleansing of this land.
    Just as it is written in the Book of Judges, God allowed evil nations to destory Israel; so too, will He allow evil nation to destory the United States.
    The cleansing will most likely come quickly from Russia and China, it will be in one night, in one hour, and the United States will never rise to power again. But first before all of this there is coming the 2nd or the three major attack on America. The 2nd major attack will be approx. 1000 times greater than the Sept. 11, '01 attack. it will be in at least 3 areas, one in Southern California, and two on the upper East Coast, most likely in or near Philadelphia and Boston. We have sown death and we are about to reap death.
    God has been warning us of our destruction since at least the mid-1980s but very few are seeking God. If interested in more details, Google; "Watchman On The Wall - RFC Newsletter #101." If you don't believe in God communicating His desires to man, Google: "Watchman On The Wall - The Greater Message."
