How Congressional Republicans Are Responding to Biden’s Climate Agenda

How Congressional Republicans Are Responding to Biden’s Climate Agenda
Only some of them appear serious.

Since taking office, President Joe Biden has re-entered the United States into the Paris Agreement, revoked a key permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, and placed a moratorium on new oil and gas leases on public lands. Republicans in Congress aren’t happy. This week, Republicans signaled how they aim to block Biden’s agenda—and what the right’s vision for federal climate action might look like.


The Paris Agreement is an “agreement to agree,” Pielke said, which means no American dollars are actually funding the thing itself. Money will come into play domestically in the US if legislators pass bills aimed at helping the nation meet its emissions-reduction targets under the Paris Agreement. And the US has already paid approximately $1 billion into the United Nations Green Climate Fund to help poor nations deal with the consequences of climate change, but there is no financial requirement of joining the Paris Agreement in general. “Somebody says we’re going to cut funding for Paris, it doesn’t even mean anything because there is no such thing,” Pielke said.
