What Biden's State of the Union Said About Climate

Biden's State of the Union defines climate action as common sense

  • "It’s an issue of values, one “we have an obligation to our children and grandchildren to confront,” he said in the speech. It’s common sense, a need to stop floods and weather related blackouts. And it’s a pocketbook issue, a matter of new jobs for union workers, lower utility bills, and tax breaks for families looking to buy their first electric car."

  • In contrast to the sprawling, labyrinthine efforts to address the crisis passed in the Inflation Reduction Act and other bills in the past two years, and the light-touch maneuvering his administration undertakes at global climate summits, the version of climate action that Biden is presenting to the American people is mercifully simple: This matters to you. And I’m taking care of it.
