“I join in congratulating Gina McCarthy on her nearly two very successful years as President Biden’s National Climate Advisor. Meanwhile, the Biden-Harris administration set ambitious climate and emissions targets, and President Biden signed into law the Cut Inflation Act – the biggest investment a country has ever made. made in history to address the global climate crisis and benefit American workers and families as we rise to this challenge.
