President Joe Biden has made his environmental plans clear as he took office. His first step was to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. He wants to implement a “clean energy revolution and environmental justice. His plans include investing heavily in renewable energy sources and electric cars.
The president’s goal is to transition the U.S. to 100 percent renewable energy for electricity generation by 2035 and net-zero emissions by 2050. He also wants the U.S. to serve as a leader in addressing the world’s climate emergency.
The new president wasn’t exaggerating his plans on the campaign trail either. On his first day in office, he rejoined the Paris Climate Accord. President Biden also revoked a crucial permit on the 1,700-mile Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline would carry approximately 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Albert to the Texas Gulf Coast.
