Biden intends to raise the climate issue as a national security priority with the creation of an action plan to reduce emissions

President Joe Biden delivers remarks on climate change. On Wednesday he signed a series of executive orders that aim to “confront the existential threat of climate change” across the federal government while emphasizing job creation and tackling racial inequity.

The new American President intends to raise the climate issue as a national security priority. Among its purposes, the creation of a task force to define an action plan to reduce emissions and the request for government agencies to evaluate bans on drilling on federal land. The President of the United States said: “In my view, we’ve already waited too long to deal with this climate crisis. We can’t wait any longer. We see it with our own eyes. We feel it. We know it in our bones. And it’s time to act.”

Regarding Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, Joe Biden said: “I think it must be done” in a short interview with CNN carried out at the White House. Biden stressed that the process could have effects on his legislative agenda and candidates for government, but said it would have “a worse effect if it didn’t happen.” According to the new tenant of the White House, there should not be the votes of the 17 senators necessary for the conviction of the former president. “The Senate has changed since I was there, but not much has changed,” he added.
