President-elect Joe Biden says rejoining the Paris Agreement on climate change would be among his first actions after he’s sworn in. Biden wants to restrict oil and gas drilling, expand mileage standards for SUVs, and make the U.S. carbon neutral by 2050. This comes after four years of Donald Trump’s executive orders unfurling Obama-era climate protections.
