If Joe Biden wins in November, Democrats plan to advance climate change legislation at the next Congress. This will give House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a chance to advance the so-called liberal wish list on this issue. We will agree that, despite the changes caused by the corona virus and the current reduction in global pollution, this is still an important issue for the future.
Laws dealing with green energy will be a priority as early as January. "Yes, it will be an early part of the agenda," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi opened her weekly press conference lamenting the worsening fires in Oregon and California and the recent destructive hurricane in Louisiana, which she said was the fifth-strongest to hit the United States.
"I mentioned these in the same context because climate change, the climate crisis, is directly related to both of them," Pelosi said.
Back in the summer, Biden announced that he would ask the Congress to pass legislation in the first year of his mandate that would establish an "enforcement mechanism" to achieve "milestone targets" addressing climate change by the end of his first term.
