Biden officials celebrate infrastructure deal in fuel-cell big rig

White House national climate adviser Gina McCarthyand Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm celebrated progress on President Biden's infrastructure package by taking a spin in a Kenworth fuel-cell, zero-emissions Class A truck.

What they're saying: "We have a deal, a Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework deal," Granholm said. McCarthy responded: "it's big and it's beautiful."

  • "[I]t's going to invest in electric vehicle infrastructure like charging stations. But also, hopefully we're going to see incentives for these big trucks which are emission free," Granholm added, referring to the truck she McCarthy were in.
  • "This is the future we're driving in right now," McCarthy said.

The big picture: Granholm noted that the transportation section is "a big contributor to carbon pollution." U.S. transportation emits approximately 1.9 billion tons of carbon annually, Yale University said in 2017.

  • The secretary also said that increasing production of zero-emission vehicles would increase jobs within the trucking industry.
  • Granholm and McCarthy then use the CB radio to chat about semiconductors with Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo: "Gina 2 to Gina 1!"
  • Raimondo describes Biden's plan to create jobs by stimulating semiconductor production and increasing broadband coverage.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
