U.S. President Joe Biden is taking executive action to tackle the climate crisis nationally and abroad, including re-establishing the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.
These Executive Orders build on the actions that the president took on his first day in office, including rejoining the Paris Agreement and immediate review of rollbacks of standards that protect air, water, and communities in the U.S.
Biden will also sign a presidential memorandum on scientific integrity to protect scientists from political interference and ensure they can think, research, and speak freely to provide valuable information and insights to the public.
Biden has set ambitious goals to achieve a carbon-pollution-free power sector by 2035 and a net-zero economy by 2050 in the U.S.
