President Joe Biden’s administration has prepared a $ 2 trillion infrastructure investment program. Donald Trump has promised essentially the same thing, but this program is sustainable by raising taxes. According to the Biden program, the United States will move towards zero carbon emissions by 2050. To achieve this ambitious goal, a substantial amount of wind and solar power will be necessary.
