NextImg:Biden admin commits to shutting down coal plants in push for green agenda

The Biden Administration announced Saturday that the United States is committed to phasing out coal power plants nationwide and not building new ones as it moves ahead with its green agenda.

U.S. Special Envoy for Climate John Kerry announced at the annual United Nations climate change summit in Dubai, called COP28, that America is joining 56 other nations that compromise the Power Past Coal Alliance.

“We will be working to accelerate unabated coal phase-out across the world, building stronger economies and more resilient communities,” Kerry said in a statement. 

“The first step is to stop making the problem worse: stop building new unabated coal power plants.”

It’s unclear when existing U.S. coal plants would have to shut, but other Biden regulatory actions and international commitments already in play have targeted 2035 as a coal-free deadline.

As of October, roughly 20% of U.S. electricity was powered by coal, according to the Department of Energy.

The amount of coal burned in the United States last year was less than half what it was in 2008.
