President Biden’s relentless assault on the energy industry continues. All at the behest of the radical environmentalists. Will America’s energy industry even be salvageable in four years? What will Texas, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and other energy states look like in four years? The energy industry is responsible for huge levels of employment in these states, as well as significant tax revenue that funds schools, roads and infrastructure. All of this is in jeopardy due to President Biden’s radical agenda.
With the stroke of a pen, Biden denied thousands of Americans a good job that they were relying on.
He offered no help and no assurances to those workers who lost their jobs. https://t.co/TMv6kH2agP

Biden climate change order to tell federal agencies to eliminate fossil fuel subsidies
By Fox News, January 27, 2021
President Biden is set to take “aggressive action” Wednesday to tackle climate change and is expected to take a number of executive actions focused on jobs, “equitable” clean energy and “restoring” scientific integrity across the federal government.
The order will expand on his move last week to rejoin the Paris climate agreement. His review of “harmful rollbacks of standards” that protect air, water and communities is set to 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.”
On the campaign trail, Biden called for the U.S. to phase out its dependence on fossil fuels.
Biden’s order on Wednesday is set to “empower” American workers and businesses to “lead a clean energy revolution” that would achieve a carbon pollution-free sector by 2035, while putting the U.S. on an “irreversible path to a net-zero economy by 2050.”
The order, according to the White House, clearly establishes climate considerations as an “essential element” of U.S. foreign policy and national security.
The order affirms that the U.S. “will exercise its leadership to promote a significant increase in global ambition,” while making clear that “both significant short-term global emission reductions and net-zero global emissions by mid-century—or before—are required to avoid setting the world on a dangerous, potentially catastrophic, climate trajectory.”
The order will also commit Biden to hosting a Leaders’ Climate Summit on Earth Day, April 22, 2021; the U.S. to reconvene the Major Economies Forum; and to underscore the administration’s commitment to elevating climate in U.S. foreign policy.
Biden, last year, announced that former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry would serve as special presidential envoy for climate and will sit on the National Security Council — the first time that the NSC will include an official dedicated to climate change.
Meanwhile, the order also directs Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines to prepare a National Intelligence Estimate on the security implications of climate change, the State Department to prepare a transmittal package to the Senate for the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal protocol, and all agencies to develop strategies for integrating climate considerations into their international work.
The order also formally establishes the White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy, creating a central office in the White House that is charged with coordinating and implementing Biden’s domestic climate agenda.
As for jobs, the order, according to the White House, is “consistent with the goals of the President’s Build Back Better jobs and economic recovery plan,” saying that clean energy jobs is a “central pillar.” The orders direct federal agencies to procure carbon pollution-free electricity, and clean, zero-emission vehicles to create good-paying union jobs and “stimulate clean energy industries.”
