On Thursday, Mr. Biden said the U.S. can reach the emissions target through his jobs plan — a $3 trillion infrastructure package meant to revitalize the nation’s energy grid and create a net-zero economy.  Mr. Biden has repeatedly urged Congress to pass his multi-trillion dollar infrastructure plan, which includes proposals for creating eco-friendly jobs and shoring up green infrastructure.

“The signs are unmistakable, the science undeniable,” Mr. Biden said on Thursday. “Cost of inaction keeps mounting.”
