The events we are seeing now are sadly the proof that no amount of American military force would ever deliver a stable, united, secure Afghanistan.
What is happening now could just as easily have happened five years ago — or fifteen years in the future.
Hey GreenCity! It was great to be at the net-zero eco-district here in Richmond, Virginia.
I saw first-hand the amazing work being done to develop innovative clean energy technologies.
@POTUS' #BuildBackBetter Agenda will build on that progress — for everyone. twitter.com/RepSpanberger/…
🗓️ TODAY: I’ll be joining@RepSpanbergerr in Virginia to talk to folks about good-paying local jobs and how@POTUSS’ BID and#BuildBackBetterr Agenda will invest in Americans and our clean energy future.o
Michiganders have a special place in my heart. They understand what it means to invest in the future even when the odds seem stacked against you.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal and the broader #BuildBackBetter Agenda will lift ALL Americans.
Deploying proven #CleanEnergy technologies is critical to make our communities more resilient as we tackle the growing climate crisis.
Here’s the thing: the technology is ready to go.
We’ve made historic progress today!
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal is just the first step toward enacting @POTUS’ full #BuildBackBetter Agenda. With a bold reconciliation, we can continue to tackle climate change while building an economy that works for all Americans. twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…
As expected, CBO confirms half the bill is paid for with new revenue that “scores.” The other half is paid for with savings and other revenue (unused UI, unused COVID $) that don’t score under their rules, but they are real dollars.
.@POTUS is 100% committed to making sure underserved communities are at the forefront of his #BuildBackBetter Agenda.
Thoughtful conversation with @RepHaleyStevens and energy justice leaders today on deeply investing in #ClimateAction & clean energy while lifting communities.
I'm heartbroken to learn about the passing of my dear colleague and friend, @RichardTrumka. Today, workers across America and @AFLCIO have lost a giant—someone who dedicated his life to increasing opportunities for every worker from every background.
Great to be back in Motor City with @RepSlotkin! Suppliers like @MagnaInt are living proof that good-paying union jobs and decarbonizing our transportation supply chain go hand-in-hand.
@POTUS’ #BuildBackBetter Agenda will supercharge Michigan and every pocket of our nation.
Excited to be back in Michigan this week to talk about how @POTUS' #BuildBackBetter Agenda will invest in domestic manufacturing, build a clean energy economy, and create millions of good-paying union jobs!
Reaching a bipartisan agreement on the single largest investment in clean energy transmission means we get to restore the middle class, bolster America’s competitiveness and address the challenge of the climate crisis.
RIP Carl Levin - champion of Michigan, of our armed servicemen and women, of Detroit, and of the little guy. He was the “conscience of the Senate” - and he elevated the ethics of everyone around him. So much love to Barbara and the Levin family.
This historic deal🤝takes key steps towards delivering the progress we need for working families — to create jobs, combat the climate crisis, and ensure more Americans can participate fully and equitably in our economy.
I commend my Senate colleagues for advancing it.twitter.com/CBSNews/status…O
.@POTUS promised to work across the aisle to deliver results for families and we’re making good on that promise!
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal shows how we can come together to build an economy and country that's more sustainable, resilient, and just. 🇺�twitter.com/WhiteHouse/sta…10
✅Historic investments in our EV charging infrastructure
✅Reduces emissions near airports, ports, and waterways
✅ Single largest investment in American history to upgrade our power infrastructure
✅ JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!! 🇺�twitter.com/POTUS/status/1…Jt
As we face yet again another summer of droughts and heatwaves, @ENERGY continues to play a critical role in fortifying and innovating our power grid to make it more resilient.
We must meet this moment with action. Our future depends on it. cnn.com/2021/07/20/wor…
My dad used to say, “all you want, as a middle-class person, is just to have a little bit of breathing room.”
We can deliver for the American people on an infrastructure deal that creates good-paying, union jobs. Jobs that give families breathing room. Let’s get it done.
Last week, I hit the road in New Jersey & let me tell you: amazing things are happening there —from making buildings more efficient & affordable to producing the battery storage technologies that will turbo-charge our nation toward 100% clean electricity by 2035. #BuildBackBetter
Infrastructure is bipartisan. You don't have to take my word for it - here's a letter from over 370 mayors on both sides of the aisle from all 50 states who are asking for the sustainable, resilient, and just infrastructure package to be signed into law. usmayors.org/wp-content/upl…
New clean energy jobs are a HUGE opportunity for communities in every pocket of our nation. @POTUS is committed to creating millions of these good-paying union jobs w/ good benefits.
The time is now to revitalize the energy industry.⚡️Let’s get it done
Coal and power plant communities have been hard hit by the energy transition – and these pandemic relief funds are just the beginning of the Biden Administration’s efforts to support economic and community revitalization efforts in these parts of the country. 👇twitter.com/SecRaimondo/st…D
We're safer because of the work of @ENERGY national labs. I'm not going to miss any opportunities to spread the word about their work to keep us safe, combat the climate crisis, and advance science. Check out this recap from my trip to @Livermore_Lab. bit.ly/36xFdMT
.@POTUS and Chancellor Merkel have launched the U.S.-Germany Climate and Energy Partnership! Looking forward to co-leading this with @ClimateEnvoy.
Excited to deepen U.S.-German collaboration on policies and technologies needed to accelerate the global net-zero future! twitter.com/ABCNewsLive/st…
Had a good talk on MSNBC's @allinwithchris about the devastating cost of climate disasters to our economy and our communities.
With @POTUS' Build Back Better Agenda, we can build our clean energy economy and heal our planet for generations to come.
All infrastructure is local — that’s why a bipartisan group of former governors, mayors, and local officials are all-in on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework. Let’s get this done for the American people. Let’s win our clean energy future. 🇺thehill.com/blogs/blog-bri…um
For far too long, underserved communities have been left out of our changing economy. No more.
We’re going to make sure that all communities — especially fenceline communities — benefit from federal investments in our clean energy economy. #Justice40twitter.com/BrendaMallory4…
@ENERGY This new initiative will create new manufacturing #jobs right here at home and make sure clean, reliable, affordable electricity is available to everyone, including Americans living in remote and underserved communities.
