The Biden administration’s claims that the Mountain Valley Pipeline would help Europe or benefit national security — in Europe, in the United States, or anywhere else — are wildly unfounded.
Over 100 groups sent a letter to Biden Administration officials ahead of this week’s G7 meeting of climate change and environmental ministers urging the United States to resist the Japanese push for increased public investments in LNG.
“Biden’s climate legacy hangs in the balance — we need bold leadership, not tinkering around the edges. Declaring a climate emergency would make it clear that Biden views the climate crisis as an existential threat and unlock key powers to tackle climate change head-on and hasten a just transition to clean, renewable energy,” said Rees.
“Furthering fossil fuel dependence would be the worst possible choice for Biden and von der Leyen in a critical moment — we need to double down on clean, renewable energy,” said Collin Rees.
