United States President Joe Biden said climate change is a “clear and present danger” while announcing new executive action that addressed some concerns among his own Democratic Party on the issue, but stopped short of declaring a federal emergency. Biden unveiled the latest efforts during a visit on Wednesday to a former coal-fired power plant in Somerset, Massachusetts, that is shifting to offshore wind manufacturing. It is the embodiment of the transition to clean energy that Biden is seeking but has struggled to realise in the first 18 months of his presidency.
