President Biden Taking Bold Steps Needed for Climate Progress
Statement from Defend Our Future

“President Biden is putting climate progress front and center with bold and decisive executive actions that will begin his administration’s efforts to reduce climate pollution and put us on track to ensuring cleaner, healthier communities. These efforts range from creating a coordinating hub in the White House focused on government-wide action on climate change, to prioritizing environmental justice, to returning to science-based decision making.

“This past election, young people turned out in historic numbers, driven in large part by a demand for bold climate action from elected leaders. Today’s actions show just how committed President Biden is about tackling the challenge facing our generation and future generations – climate change. These steps, combined with yesterday’s historic executive actions on equity, make it clear that his administration will center solutions around climate, health and justice.”
