Biden Releases Obama-Like Plan to Reduce Emissions

Biden Releases Obama-Like Plan to Reduce Emissions
  • Biden released a plan to reduce greenhouse emissions 50-52% by 2030.
  • The new plan is reminiscent of Obama’s 2015 plan.
  • Obama and Biden have reportedly been speaking frequently.
  • Republicans have condemned the climate change proposal saying it will kill jobs.

(NewsReady.com) – When President Joe Biden started naming his cabinet officials, people noticed something odd: a whole lot of them used to work for former President Barack Obama. In fact, Biden’s campaign staffers were reportedly very upset about it. Recently, questions about who was really running the White House arose again after Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the president and former president were speaking frequently about issues impacting the country. She said Obama was advising Biden.

Now, the Biden administration’s plan for climate change is raising these same questions again.

Biden’s Plan… or Obama’s?

On April 22, on Earth Day, the White House released Biden’s plan to reduce greenhouse emissions by up to 52% compared to the 2005 levels by 2030. The goal is reportedly going to be formally submitted to the United Nations as part of the Paris Agreement, which the president rejoined on his first day of office.

According to The Hill, Biden’s plan follows former President Obama’s goal of reducing emissions by 26% to 28% by 2025. Like the 44th president, Biden promises his plan is going to create thousands of jobs. They both also claim they’ll cut energy prices for families and improve health for Americans.

Republicans are against the proposal because they’re concerned that the president is going to kill jobs just as the country is recovering from an economic downturn. The fact that it has so much in common with Obama’s plan is just icing on a very unfortunate cake. It’s truly as though we are all living through the third Obama term and the new administration doesn’t even seem to be trying to hide it.
