Biden signs executive orders on climate and environment; reversing Trump-era environmental actions

President Joe Biden has signed several executive orders on policies aimed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to create clean energy and to end fossil fuel subsidies on what the White House called the "climate day". Biden has further directed federal agencies to make decisions based on scientific evidence and data and signed orders to freeze new oil and gas leases on public lands.

"We’ve already waited too long to deal with this climate crisis," so Biden. "We can’t wait any longer. We see it with our own eyes, we feel it, we know it in our bones. And it’s time to act."
