FILE PHOTO - White House senior advisor Brian Deese (L) walks with U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Todd Stern (R) to attend a meeting during the COP 21 United Nations conference on climate change at Le Bourget on the outskirts of Paris, France December 10, 2015. “I’m asking Brian Deese to do this job because he’s someone who looks at hard problems and finds solutions that help make life better for American families,” Biden said in a video posted by his transition team. He served as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget and the National Economic Council and as a senior climate and energy advisor to Obama. Deese’s work at BlackRock prompted an outcry by several environmental and progressive groups who have criticized the appointee for working for corporate interests and said he was not aggressive enough on climate change. “Along with @JoeBiden and @BarackObama Brian Deese shepherded the rescue of the auto industry.

WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are calling on President-elect Joe Biden to use executive power to advance goals such as tackling climate change, relieving student debt and creating a more progressive immigration system. "I think President Biden has significant executive power. "From Treasury to State to Interior (departments) and the financial regulators, climate action and climate risk management has to be infused into literally everything," he said. Even if Democrats capture both Georgia seats and take control of the Senate, McConnell would retain the power to filibuster legislation and force a 60-vote threshold. Jamal Brown, a spokesman for Biden's transition team, said his agenda will include executive power.

WASHINGTON — Progressives are ramping up their public pressure on President-Elect Joe Biden to appoint progressives to key jobs in his incoming administration and keep out corporate executives, lobbyists and consultants. We expect hundreds of thousands of them will," said David Segal, the co-founder of the progressive group Demand Progress. "That's why it is imperative that the Biden administration appoint a Cabinet that puts the American people's interests over corporate agendas." In 2008, the progressive movement largely demobilized after helping Barack Obama get elected. "We're just here to say that we want and we ask Joe Biden to be brave, to be big, to be bold."

President-elect Joe Biden on Thursday tore into President Donald Trump for refusing to concede the election and formally commit to a peaceful transfer of power, while also blasting the General Services Administration's delay of the presidential transition. Biden, however, saved most of his breath for criticism of Trump and his administration. Biden has repeatedly said that the GSA’s delay is seriously hindering his eventual administration's ability to hit the ground running in fighting the pandemic. Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., will travel to Wilmington on Friday to have a face to face meeting with Biden. Biden is leading Trump in the state by almost 160,000 votes.

Business Insider spoke to five experts who predicted that a Biden administration has big implications for the advertising industry. They anticipated a nationwide data privacy law and the creation of a consumer privacy protection bureau like the one Vice President-elect Kamala Harris established in California. More antitrust actions against the big tech platforms are also expected. They said a top priority would be passing a nationwide data privacy law. He predicted California's evolving data privacy laws would cost businesses $80 billion in that state alone.

What Biden Can Do About Climate Change - The New York Times
  + stars: | 2020-11-13 | by ( David Leonhardt | ) www.nytimes.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
The fact that Mr. Biden seems inclined to make the climate a top priority does not stem from a longtime personal obsession. If anything, the attention on racial injustice since George Floyd’s killing in May has put more momentum behind climate policy. In addition to the activist energy, broader public opinion seems to be shifting, as climate change has gone from being a hypothetical future problem in many people’s minds to an everyday problem. In a Pew Research Center poll this year, 52 percent of Americans said that dealing with global climate change should be a top priority for the president and Congress. As Ms. Gunn-Wright said, “It’s getting harder and harder to act like climate change is a long-term issue that’s coming down the pike.”

For many, the testimony of Big Tech CEOs may evoke a similar feeling. There will be no damning self-incrimination on camera that leads to a dramatic and wholesale reversal of fortunes for Big Tech. Tennessee Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn asked Google CEO Sundar Pichai if an employee who had criticized her had been fired. Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson read out a tweet that had identified itself as satire and had falsely claimed Johnson had strangled a dog. "Republicans can and should join us in addressing the real problems posed by Big Tech," Markey said.
