Biden launches office to treat climate change as public health issue

On the same day that the U.S. Health and Human Services Department announced it will treat climate change as a public health issue, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made it clear that the COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity to advance the globalist agenda.

“What we learned from this climate — uh — COVID crisis, we will be applying to the climate crisis, to the housing crisis, to reconciliation, to making sure that everyone has good jobs and careers that carry them through and create opportunities for their kids,” Trudeau said.

At HHS in Washington, the Wall Street Journal reported, the new Office of Climate Change and Health Equity will report to the department’s secretary, Xavier Becerra.

“Its mission is to protect the health of people experiencing a disproportionate share of climate impacts and health inequities from wildfires to drought, to hurricanes to floods,” Becerra explained at a news briefing Monday.

One year ago, Trudeau acknowledged that he saw the pandemic as a chance for Canada to contribute to the globalist “Great Reset” plan initiated by the World Economic Forum, which hosts the annual Davos Agenda meeting of world leaders.

“This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset,” said Trudeau in a video conference for the United Nations in September 2020. “This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts, to re-imagine economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”

In June 2020, WEF founder Klaus Schwab called for exploiting the pandemic with a “Great Reset of capitalism.” At WEF’s virtual meeting in January 2021 featuring its Great Reset initiative, a Fortune 500 CEO affirmed WEF’s assertion that “capitalism as we have known it is dead.”

In his address to the U.N. one year ago, Trudeau used the terminology adopted by President Biden of “building back better.”

“Building back better means getting support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 agenda of sustainable development and the [U.N. Sustainable Development Goals],” he said.

‘We will use every authority to its greatest advantage’

HHS officials said Monday the new office likely will launch initiatives that protect populations most at risk, including the elderly, minorities, rural communities and children.

The office, the Wall Street Journal reported, could eventually compel hospitals and other care facilities to reduce carbon emissions.

Becerra was asked how HHS would reduce carbon emissions from health-care facilities.

“We will use every authority to its greatest advantage because it is time to tackle climate change now,” he replied.

John Kerry: ‘We’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time’

At the January Davos meeting, Marc Benoiff, the CEO of Salesforce, which is regarded as a pioneer of cloud computing, said the “obsession” with “maximizing profits for shareholders alone has led to incredible inequality and a planetary emergency.”

WEF and its allies advocate “stakeholder capitalism,” meaning that rather than pursuing profits, companies would “pursue the wellbeing of all people and the entire planet.”

Ahead of the January meeting, Schwab published an op-ed about the need for a “Davos Manifesto” for “a better kind of capitalism.”

“Business leaders now have an incredible opportunity. By giving stakeholder capitalism concrete meaning, they can move beyond their legal obligations and uphold their duty to society,” the WEF founder wrote. “They can bring the world closer to achieving shared goals, such as those outlined in the Paris climate agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda. If they really want to leave their mark on the world, there is no alternative.”

Last November, WND reported, former Secretary of State John Kerry and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said in a WEF panel that a Joe Biden presidency would help propel the “Great Reset” plan.

“The notion of a reset is more important than ever before,” Kerry said. “I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”

Kerry, who has since been appointed Biden’s climate czar, said Biden was ready to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, which would help drive the “Great Reset.” But rejoining Paris is “not enough,” Kerry said.

“The Biden administration will focus on every sector of the American economy,” he said. “There will be a 2035 goal to achieve net neutrality with respect to power and production.

Kerry said the U.S. is “ready to come back in and help to lead and raise the ambition in Glasgow to accelerate this incredible capacity for a transformation in the private sector.”

In June, the White House published a statement announcing Biden was set to meet with G7 leaders “to discuss ways to forge a more fair, sustainable, and inclusive global economy that meets the unique challenges of our time.” Among the White House initiatives toward that end is pushing for a “global minimum tax” on multinational corporations of at least 15%.
