On Wednesday, President Joe Biden signed a sweeping series of executive actions while casting the moves as much about job creation as the climate crisis. David Popp, Caroline Rapking Faculty Scholar in Public Administration and Policy and co-author of a 2020 paper on the employment effects of the Obama-era spending on green job creation, discounted the notion of creating one million new auto manufacturing jobs. "He’s basically saying he’s going to double auto manufacturing. I find that hard to believe," says Popp. "You can’t do that with auto emissions regulations. You can’t do that with government procurement." Read more in the New York Times article, "Biden, Emphasizing Job Creation, Signs Sweeping Climate Actions."
