On Thursday, it’s anticipated that the Biden administration will order states to set precise goals for lowering tailpipe emissions for cars traveling on the national highway system.
According to Pete Buttigieg’s Federal Highway Administration, which is a division of the US Department of Transportation, states must “set targets that work for their respective climate change policies and other policy priorities, so long as they are in line with the net-zero goals by 2050 set forth in this rule,” according to a statement to Reuters.
State transportation authorities would be required to set these dwindling targets and then report on incremental advancements under this new clause. The regulation is just another stringent step in Biden’s American energy strategy, comparable to the EPA’s earlier overreach in regulating emissions that the Supreme Court recently overturned.
When Joe Biden announced his candidacy for president in 2020, he pledged to completely abolish the fossil fuel industry and overhaul America’s energy system. Just after the US attained energy independence, he made his statement.
The President set the objective of reaching 100 percent clean electricity by 2035 and net zero carbon emissions by 2050 when he took office. By taking steps like replacing the entire fleet of government vehicles with “net-zero emissions” cars, which are hypothetical items, the Biden administration pledged to fulfill the commitment.

In 2022 the Biden Administration maintained their energy policy and had Transportation Secretary, who also believes roads are racist, pushing electric cars on Americans as gas prices soared. Currently gas costs more than double what it did when Biden took office. CONTINUE READING…
