The Biden administration formalized through Secretary of State Tony Blinken to rejoin the Paris climate agreement, and makes these policies the centerpiece of America’s domestic and international policy.
“Addressing the real threats from climate change and listening to our scientists is at the center of our domestic and foreign policy priorities,” Blinken stated according to Fox News on Feb. 19.
He added, “It is vital in our discussions of national security, migration, international health efforts, and in our economic diplomacy and trade talks.”
Meanwhile, they continue to destroy the legacy achieved by former President Donald Trump, who after 70 years made America energy independent by banning the development of projects related to oil and gas exploitation.
The Trump administration announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement in 2019 saying it was in the “economic interest of the United States to do so.”
The Republican Party in a tweet pointed out how adverse some executive orders signed by Biden are to Americans.
“Pres. Biden’s executive actions to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, rejoin the Paris Climate Accord halt new oil, gas & coal leases on federal lands hurt American workers & raises energy costs nationwide,” tweeted the GOP.
Pres. Biden’s executive actions to
❌stop the Keystone XL pipeline
❌rejoin the Paris Climate Accord
❌halt new oil, gas & coal leases on federal lands
hurt American workers & raises energy costs nationwide.

Paradoxically, at this moment Texas, one of the states with the largest gas reserves in the world, is suffering from freezing temperatures that are forcing residents to take refuge in public shelters to avoid freezing to death and other similar hardships.
One of the causes of this unexpected crisis is that precisely in order to reduce the supposed climate change effects, many wind energy generators were installed but were paralyzed by the snowfalls and they literally froze solid.
This situation, so unfavorable to the needs of the Americans, is causing indignation.
This is what Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in one of his tweets on Jan. 20.
“By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans,” Cruz tweeted.

In turn, Twitter user @Real_Joe1, recalls that it was recently revealed that the French government was not complying with the Paris Agreement, yet the United States was again adhering to it.
“Paris was found guilty of not following the Paris accord but the U.S. formally rejoins. What a joke,” he tweeted.

Likewise, user @JohnLynch0404 said that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will be a winner from these decisions made by Biden, apparently linked to the multibillion-dollar business dealings of Hunter Biden, the president’s son with the CCP.
“China wins. Hunter’s investment pays off.”
