The U.S. is now officially out of the Paris Climate Agreement, and even if Joe Biden is ultimately declared the President, it will be difficult for him to rejoin and get his agenda through a divided Congress.

Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, says the fact that the U.S. is out of the Paris Climate Agreement gives the U.S. greater options for energy development and use. Contrary to some people’s beliefs, if Joe Biden is declared President, if won’t necessarily be easy for the U.S. to get back into the agreement. If this election shows anything, it is a rebuke of the radical green agenda. Biden, if President, may try and push through some regulations, but it’s doubtful he can get his most ambitious energy and climate commitments through Congress.
