President Biden Signs Green Executive Orders

His orders are meant to make the federal government carbon neutral by 2050

President Biden has ordered federal agencies to pursue the purchase of electric vehicles, harness wind, solar, and nuclear energy to power facilities, and to work towards using sustainable building materials. The goal is for the federal government to move towards being carbon neutral by the year 2050. 

The executive order said it was being done “in order to establish the Federal Government as a leader in sustainability.” It also added that the orders are responding to “mounting risks and costs already posed by the climate crisis.” 

Over the next ten years, the president wants the government to cease purchasing electricity produced from sources that emit carbon dioxide. By 2035, the administration wants all new federal cars and truck purchases to be zero-emissions. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president to seek God’s wisdom as he sets policy and signs executive orders to direct and lead the federal government.
  • For God’s will to be accomplished through the president’s executive orders on sustainable energy.
