Biden appoints fossil fuel SUPPORTERS to powerful federal energy commission

Do you remember the 2020 presidential campaign when Joe Biden PROMISED to protect the climate?

After taking office, some of his actions have HURT the climate!   He has approved horrible fossil fuel projects and refused to take many necessary actions.  Just recently he appointed THREE STRONG SUPPORTERS OF FOSSIL FUELS to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which for many years has rubber-stamped approvals for fossil fuel projects.  BIDEN IS CONTINUING THE STATUS QUO!!!  BIDEN IS HURTING THE CLIMATE!!!

A credible non-profit organization posted this on March 25, 2024:

We took a ton of actions last week to UnFrack FERC – the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. So, as you probably heard, President Biden has nominated three new Commissioners to FERC. They are Judy Chang, David Rosner, and Lindsay See. And none of them are committed to change at FERC.

FERC is a pivotal agency in the clean energy transition: in addition to reviewing new natural gas infrastructure, they oversee the rules for the US electric grid, including whether new interstate transmission lines get built, and whether electric markets treat rooftop solar and energy efficiency fairly.

If confirmed, those three nominees will represent a governing majority at FERC. So they’ll be able to make or break the rules of the clean energy transition. And that’s why today we’re calling on the US Senate to vote “NO” on these nominees.
