"5 Ways Biden Wove Climate Action Into His Budget"

"President Biden's first budget proposal sketches a vision for greening the entire federal government, and it includes areas that have been traditional afterthoughts to climate policy, such as prisons.

His $1.4 billion environmental justice plan, for example, calls for $39 million to repair Bureau of Prisons buildings, the preliminary budget says, "in a manner that improves conditions of confinement and enhances environmental sustainability."

That's far from the only instance. Biden has promised a whole-of-government approach to climate, and his budget is full of initiatives — both expected and unexpected — that underscore that ambition."
