Welcome Remarks & Special Dialogue with Hon. Gina McCarthy
As one of the first acts of his Administration, President Joe Biden appointed the Hon. Gina McCarthy to become the first White House National Climate Advisor and lead the domestic climate policy agenda. The US economy, withered by the unyielding advance of a global pandemic, is seeking both short-term relief as well as a path to sustainable growth. What will be Biden’s climate strategy? How will the United States align long-term goals with short-term actions? What measures will the Administration enact on “energy justice” to compensate for job losses as parts of the energy economy shrink?
