Congress ‘does not have the political will’ to match Biden’s climate plans

President Joe Biden’s ambitious climate plan to halve the US emissions by 2030 may not have the support from Congress it needs “to match the aspiration” of what it is trying to achieve, according to US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman. “To reach the ambition he even laid out for the 2030 target he needs Congress to act, I don’t know if the appetite is there in Congress to match the aspiration he talked about in the global climate summit,” he told Sky News. “Something is going to happen, I think there’s a lot of money there particularly that electric vehicle spend, that’s a lot money going to almost every congressional district in the country, you’ll get few votes against that.”
