The United States and the world are facing a deep climate crisis. We have a narrow time to take action at home and abroad to avoid the most catastrophic impact of the crisis and seize the opportunities brought about by climate change. Domestic actions must go hand-in-hand with the international leadership of the United States in order to greatly strengthen global actions. Together, we must listen to science and keep pace with the times.
According to the Presidential authorization granted to me by the U.S. Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, the order is as follows:
Part One-Putting the Climate Crisis at the Center of U.S. Foreign Policy and National Security
Section 101. policy. The US international community’s response to climate change (which has become a climate crisis) is more necessary and urgent than ever. The scientific community has clearly pointed out that the scale and speed of necessary actions are greater than previously thought. There is little time to avoid putting the world on a dangerous and possibly catastrophic climate orbit. To deal with the climate crisis, it will be necessary to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions on a global scale before the middle of this century or less, and require global net zero emissions.
The policy of our government is that climate factors should become a basic element of US foreign policy and national security. The United States will cooperate with other countries and partners bilaterally and multilaterally to put the world on a sustainable climate path. The United States will also take swift action to build resilience at home and abroad to withstand the impact of climate change. This impact has already appeared and will continue to intensify according to current trends.

American farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners play an important role in responding to the climate crisis and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by isolating carbon in soil, grass, trees, and other vegetation and purchasing sustainable biological products and fuels. Coastal communities protect and restore coastal ecosystems (such as wetlands, seagrass, coral and oyster reefs, and mangrove and kelp forests), protect fragile coastlines, sequester carbon and support biodiversity, mitigating climate change and enhancing resilience Can play an important role. And fisheries.
Second 215. Civilian Climate Corps.

Workers in mining and power plants fueled the subsequent industrial revolution and economic growth, which were crucial to the growth of the United States. As the country transitions to a clean energy economy, federal leadership is critical to promoting economic recovery and investment in these communities, ensuring that good jobs are created to provide the option of joining a union, and ensuring the benefits for workers.
Such work should include projects that reduce the emissions of toxic substances and greenhouse gases in existing and abandoned infrastructure, and prevent environmental damage that endangers communities and poses risks to public health and safety. Blocking leaks from oil and gas wells and reclaiming abandoned mines can create well-paid union jobs in coal, oil and gas communities, while also restoring natural assets, revitalizing the leisure economy and reducing methane emissions. In addition, such work should include efforts to transform idle properties in these communities (such as brownfields) into new hubs for our economic growth. Therefore, federal agencies should coordinate investment and other efforts to assist coal, oil and gas, and power plant communities, and minimize methane emissions from the oil and gas sector as much as possible.
