The US President Joe Biden administration is keen on renewable energy to cut planet heating emissions. The administration strongly believes that  renewable energy would certainly help to save  thousands of people from air pollution.  Climate activists protested against fossil fuel use and pressurized the administration to take up a clean energy climate policy.

A new report prepared by a consortium of researchers from Harvard University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Syracuse University suggests a clean energy standard policy would help the Government  to  save the people and to reach the goal of 80% renewable energy use by 2030. It is to be noted President Biden already said that he wants all electricity to be renewable by 2035.

“A clean energy standard to get to the 80% goal by the end of the decade would save an estimated 317,500 lives in the US over the next 30 years, due to a sharp reduction in air pollution from the burning of coal, oil and gas. In 2030 alone, 9,200 premature deaths would be avoided once the emissions cut is achieved. The number of lives saved would be “immediate, widespread and substantial” “, the report states.

Biden is facing pressure from environmentalists, as well as major companies such as Apple and Google, to implement the new standard after it was dropped from the infrastructure bill. The president has said the measure will be included in a new reconciliation bill that can pass along party lines, although that will require every single Democratic senator to vote for it.
