Biden should declare national emergency on climate -Schumer

WASHINGTON, Jan 27 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden should declare a national emergency on climate change, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said on Wednesday, as Biden prepares to issue a slew of executive orders on the environment.

Making such an emergency declaration “would be a giant step in the right direction and it would allow President Biden to tap additional resources and pursue additional policies in the fight against climate change,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. (Reporting by Makini Brice and Lisa Lambert)
