Infrastructure Bill 2021 to tackle climate change. Does it work?

The United States could be closer to electric school buses and a better charging network for electric cars, but experts see cracks in more ambitious plans.

When President Joe Biden signed the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act last November – commonly known as the bipartisan infrastructure bill – he and other supporters noted that This would be the biggest infrastructure investment in a generation.

But they also promised it would be something else: a historic effort to fight climate change. While it hasn’t dedicated hundreds of billions of dollars directly to fighting climate change like the Cut Inflation Act this year did, the administration said the bill on infrastructure would still help the country’s transition to cleaner energy sources while electrifying the transportation sector and preparing roads and bridges for a changing world.
