Critical Commentary

This order discusses the, so-labeled, aggressive climate policies Biden plans to implement once he ascends to the Presidency. That said, discussions of executive orders to be implemented include orders to reduce fossil fuel production (with heavy taxation on gas and oil extractors, producers, and distributors), progressive implementation of energy-efficiency appliances, and building energy efficiency. Biden's plans aim to reduce gas and oil production to a minimum. In a pattern spanning across a couple of weeks, discussions in the news seem to be pointing to energy transitions. Promises of a zero-emissions future seem to be materializing through executive orders and pledges to revert the current administrations' damaging energy policies.
