Biden Climate Team Says Protecting Planet Will Create Jobs

“Folks, we’re in a crisis, just like we need to be a unified nation in response to Covid-19, we need a unified national response to climate change, need to meet the moment with the urgency it demands, as you would during any national emergency. And from this crisis, from these crises, I should say, we need to seize that opportunity to build back and build back better than we were before. That’s what this administration is going to do with the help of these fine people.” “Growing up in my mother’s Pueblo household made me fierce. My life has not been easy. I struggled with homelessness. I relied on food stamps and raised my child as a single mom. These struggles give me perspectives, though, so that I can help people to succeed.” “The president-elect and vice president-elect know that issues under Interior’s jurisdiction aren’t simply about conservation. They’re woven in with justice, good jobs and closing the racial wealth and health gaps.” “I’ll be fierce for all of us, for our planet and all of our protected land, and I’m honored and ready to serve.” “Clean energy remains among the most promising jobs and economic growth sector in the world. Over the next two decades, countries and companies are going to invest trillions, trillions, not just billions, trillions in electric cars and batteries and wind turbines, and solar panels and energy-efficient appliances and energy-efficient buildings. They’re going to upgrade their electric grids using smart technology. Millions of good-paying jobs are going to be created.” “The path to building back better starts with building and manufacturing and deploying those products here, stamping them ‘Made in America,’ and exporting them around the world.”
