Why would Schumer do this?
Recently on MSNBC, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged President Biden to call for a climate emergency so he does not need to consult Congress before making major decisions.
According to Breitbart, Schumer stated, “I think it might be a good idea for President Biden to call a climate emergency.”
“Then he can do many, many things under the emergency powers of the president that wouldn’t have to go through — that he could do without legislation,” Schumer added. “Now, Trump used this emergency for a stupid wall, which wasn’t an emergency. But if there ever was an emergency, climate is one. So I would suggest that they explore looking at climate as an emergency, which would give them more flexibility. After all, it’s a crisis.”
