Climate change is the challenge of our lifetime. Stakeholders and advocates like those in the offshore wind industry are a crucial part of the solution and will help us achieve a clean energy economy.
NEW: @SecDebHaaland today outlined the path forward for future offshore wind leasing to meet the Biden-Harris administration’s goal to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030. doi.gov/pressreleases/secret…

The Build Back Better agenda invests in the American people. It’s a historic investment in our clean energy infrastructure—an investment that will create good-paying union jobs while finally addressing legacy pollution and environmental injustice.
When President Biden thinks about climate change, he thinks about jobs. His Build Back Better Agenda will position the US to tackle the climate crisis and advance environmental justice by supporting millions of good-paying, union jobs.

Last week @Interior bureaus continued to assist with the response to an oil spill off the California Coast; we announced $348 million to fund 62 projects in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and @USGS scientists monitored the latest eruption of Hawaii’s Mount Kilauea volcano.

Thank you for the well-wishes yesterday as I completed the Boston Marathon! I am grateful to the marathon organizers and the entire city of Boston who worked so diligently for a smooth and enjoyable race. Running on Indigenous Peoples' Day made the experience even more impactful.

This Indigenous People’s Day I am proud to celebrate the rich traditions and resilience of Indigenous Communities. As @Interior works to honor our nation-to-nation promises, it is more important than ever to recognize Indigenous Peoples as the first stewards of this land.

It was an honor to meet with @A_Sinodinos today to discuss our shared appreciation for the arts, nature, and the preservation of heritage as an essential resource for living cultures and human identity. I look forward to continued collaboration with @AusintheUS.

As Secretary of the @Interior, it is my job to protect our public lands and waters to ensure that they are there for future generations. My first trip as Secretary was to Utah to visit Bears Ears and the Grand Staircase-Escalante. (1/3)

While in Utah, I had the honor of speaking with so many who care deeply about this land. The historic connection between Indigenous peoples and the land surrounding Bears Ears and the power of the landscape to the Tribal and local communities is undeniable. (2/3)

I appreciate @VP and @SecMartyWalsh for this whole-of-government approach to support the President’s vision to expand worker organizing and collective bargaining.
Had another great White House Task Force on Worker Organizing and Empowerment meeting today with @VP. Worker organizing will shape the future of our country, and I'm proud to serve as vice chair on a historic task force dedicated to empowering America's workers.

Creating equitable access to the outdoors for people of color and addressing environmental injustice requires conversation and collaboration. I’m grateful for this week’s discussions with Hispanic and Latino elected leaders and conservationists.

The climate crisis disproportionately affects underserved communities. @Interior —working with the entire administration —can center environmental justice and build resilient communities while protecting our country’s natural and cultural resources. doi.gov/pressreleases/interi…

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will change the lives of millions and millions of Americans from Indian Country to the hearts of our cities, from replacing EVERY lead service pipe in the country to addressing the legacy pollution that impacts our most vulnerable communities.

Water is a sacred and critical resource, yet for too long Tribal and rural communities have gone without access to reliably clean sources. The Build Back Better agenda brings the biggest ever investment in water infrastructure—an investment we need now more than ever.
