The U.S. is now officially out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and even if Joe Biden is ultimately declared the President, it will be difficult for him to rejoin and get his agenda through a divided Congress.
The House and Senate energy bills are based on political calculations, not science. The bills pick winners and losers in the energy marketplace based on virtue signaling and cronyism, not environmental concerns.

Joe Biden’s energy plan calls for outlawing reliable fossil fuel electricity and mandating unreliable solar and wind electricity. This will not stop CO2 emissions from rising but it will hinder America.

Science and media outlets claim ocean acidification is happening due to increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But objective data show the ocean is far from acidic according to Dr. Caleb Rossiter, executive director of the CO2 Coalition.
The mining required to meet the Green New Deal's mandate to replace fossil fuels with wind, solar, and battery power would result in untold environmental destruction and unnecessary human suffering and death.
