Biden's clean energy initiative could create 80,000 jobs

Former President Donald Trump opposed wind power because wind turbines 'kill' birds — but climate change kills many more.

The Biden administration on Wednesday announced plans to make a major sale of wind leases off the coasts of New York and New Jersey, which it has projected will lead to 80,000 new jobs by 2030.

The New York Bight, an area of 480,000 acres between Long Island and New Jersey, will be open to wind energy production forecast to generate up to 7 gigawatts of clean energy. According to the Department of the Interior, the power from the project would be enough to power 2 million homes.

"The Biden-Harris administration has made tackling the climate crisis a centerpiece of our agenda, and offshore wind opportunities like the New York Bight present a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fight climate change and create good-paying, union jobs in the United States," Interior Secretary Deb Haaland said in a press release.


Transmission lines to deliver the newly generated power will be built using funds from the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The administration says it plans to conduct further reviews for wind energy areas in California, the Gulf of Mexico, and Oregon in the coming year.

Biden's policy is a continuation of support for renewable energy that started during President Barack Obama's administration and was severely restricted under former President Donald Trump.

3. Finally the funds for good jobs are coming through!

“using funds from the recently passed Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.”

Yesss!! The gridlocked infighting was an unnecessary public mess and went on way too long — probably responsible for the lowered poll numbers. These are good jobs and good public works projects!

Thank you, President Biden and Speaker Pelosi!

4. The infighting was caused by two senators whose word was no good.

We were supposed to get the BBB, and to coddle them, it was halved, halved again, and they still stabbed Americans in the back after they got what THEY wanted.

5. The two bills should have never been tied together.

What you are talking about was the result of all that. Thank goodness Biden and Pelosi put an end to the months of grandstanding by various people. I saw them on TV, and it wasn’t just two senators.

The BIF is a huge accomplishment. I know people it will benefit with good jobs and it’s a huge accomplishment.
