BREAKING: President Joe Biden Signs 17 Executive Orders [SEE FULL LIST] - #BidenHarrisInauguration

BREAKING: President Joe Biden Signs 17 Executive Orders [SEE FULL LIST] – #BidenHarrisInauguration—Hours after his inauguration, United State President Joe Biden has signed executive orders to begin his administration squarely.

The Genius Media Nigeria reports that Biden described the efforts as “starting points” as he begins his four years in office following his inauguration at the Capitol earlier in the day, saying his policy agenda is “bold and vital.”

“With the state of the nation today, I thought it’s no time to waste, get to work immediately,” Biden told reporters while donning a mask in the Oval Office. “There’s no time to start like today.”

The orders place the US on track to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, the landmark agreement aimed at rolling back carbon emissions that former President Donald Trump chose to unilaterally exit from in a process that was finalized Nov. 4. The accord seeks to limit global warming and achieve a carbon neutral world by 2050.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres quickly welcomed Biden’s action but cautioned “there is a very long way to go” before the agreement’s lofty goals are met.
