This is Bluebird Daybreak weekend. Our global look ahead of the top stories for ambassadors in the coming week. I'm John Tucker in New York. So big changes coming in U. S policy related to the environment and climate change may be even bigger changes than you think. And for some insight, let's head to our Bloomberg 99 1 newsroom in Washington. And Bloomberg's Amy Morris. Amy Thank you. John President Biden has called climate change an existential threat, and now we're seeing how he plans to approach environmental issues through executive orders signed within days of his swearing in. Joining us now. Bloomberg editor at large, John Morgan, John, Thanks so much for taking the time with us. I am a good to talk to you. Now you cover regulation, broadly speaking, which really does cover everything, And maybe more than ever would include the environment. What do you see coming up when it comes to regulation and the environment? By a whole lot. Those hopes have been around Washington for a while. Remember the many months of study and dithering that President Obama on both when he was considering the Keystone XL pipeline and President Biden had barely put his hand down from being and inaugurated in the office when he yanked that permit that allowed that pipeline across the border so He was off and running during the campaign. A lot of environmentalists sort of wondered and whispered about whether he would be serious about the climate or whether he was just paying lip service. But we have the answer. Now. This week, he Rolled out a suite of reforms and orders and other initiatives that show he's very serious about this. Now President Biden does describe this environmental policy is part of a jobs initiative. And as I'm sure you've heard there are those who argue that yanking that permit for the pipeline would actually eliminate jobs. What will it take for this environmental policy to actually be more of a jobs initiative? How does that come to fruition? Well, uh, the pipeline itself. It was always back. We're recovering and remember, even the State Department estimated to be you know thousands of construction jobs, which is not to be sneezed at, but only about 20 full time jobs when I was up and running So I think this administration would argue that you can easily duplicated exceed that with the construction of renewable energy by the reconstruction of the electrical grid that needs to be done toe. Accommodate some other sources of energy like wind and solar and things like that, and If we can get around to manufacturing electric cars, its scale and he has ordered the federal government really invest heavily in electric cars. In fact, we may be looking at the Postal Service truck that pulls up in front of house may infect the electric in the near future. It's all good jobs, biting argues, and he's even got some support from Detroit. Which those? Yeah, we're game that's build these and some of the unions are back in that as well. So that actually leads right into my next question, which is leveraging federal regulations and purchasing power to flight fight climate change. That would go along with what you were just saying, the say the Postal Service vehicles actually being electric and other issues that federal agencies can somehow insert themselves and Managed to fight climate change by using their leverage. Yeah, he's ordered the federal buildings in their hundreds of thousands of those to look at ways they can save power and convert to renewable energy. He's talking about a federal standard, like many states have Require a certain percentage of the energy sources to be renewable and the federal U. S federal government is believed the largest purchaser of vehicles in the world. So if they do take this seriously, and I suspect they will, if they're going to be giving a big boost of some of these Dollar start up companies that are coming out with electric companies and even some of the big ones that are converting over like GM and the bolt some of the other cars so this would be a big boost to An industry that could result in a drop in prices for the rest of US consumers down the road. Is there a risk of creating uncertainty, though in just a few days, the president used those executive orders to stop issuing new oil and natural gas drilling leases on federal lands. I'm wondering how that impacts markets and creates that uncertainty. Well, there's the oil and gas in those who certainly was alarmed by that, and they say Even though that this is not stopped them from drilling on existing permit that even Ah, one year pause while they study what happens, what's going to happen with the leasing of federal land? For the purposes of fossil fuel development. They say, you know, we take a one year pause that could really knock us out for years down the road. There could be a ripple of delays and other problems. So there's certainly alarmed by this and are firing up all of the lobbying corps in Washington to push back against it. It's going to be a good fight on the road. Will the president be able to shift to cleaner modes of transportation along and along, especially within the timeline that he's given? Well, it's we're about to find out that way it you can do a lot like I said they concede some companies by providing, you know, just being a ready market. And once you get to a certain point, and there's gonna be a tipping point when enough Electric vehicles are on the road, then we're going to see electric charging stations. Something up in places where they are now and that's very much necessary for consumer adoption of electric vehicles. So there are things the government can do to help Lee, you know, sort of path. Towards more use of electric vehicles. And we're about to find out if if Congress will go along because some of this will require some funding. On it Zbig changes talking about, but so far he's got his one acceptance from the auto industry, which is has invested heavily also in these things, and there's always Tesla out there, which was sort of led the way and it's uh At some point more valuable than a lot of the big companies on Wall Street right now. Bye bye Capitalization. No, I want to get into the policy a little bit more. But before I do, Let's talk about the technique. How the president is able to get from a to B and right now he is simply using the executive order. That's kind of risky, isn't it? Because the next president could just come along and undo all of it, as we are seeing happened with the Biden administration now on doing Ah, lot of the Trump Administration executive orders isn't that risky? Very risky. Yeah, There's really three ways of President can do things and one of his executive order, which has its limits their only so many things you can order people to do and don't require funding, which would have to go through the budget process. But He's made have he's made President Biden, as president Trump had done has made wide use of that. Beyond that, you could do regulations..

And so we begin with the coronavirus where we are now what the company months are likely to hold and how we can get to the other side with one of the governors who has been on the front lines in that battle. Democrat Ned Lamont of Connecticut. We're doing so much more testing well over 200,000 tests awake now that we are detecting the virus earlier. We do have a younger demographic We're seen. We're getting those folks quarantine earlier. Folks go to the hospital. We're detecting that earlier. They're spending less time in the hospital. All of which is good news. But I'd said the spread the community spread is pretty broad. And it could be in an urban area like Bridgeport, Connecticut or more rural area like Norwich, Conn. Let's talk about where you go from here specifically with respect to the vaccine. We've heard a lot about vaccine that may be coming where there's hope on the way, Although it looks like we're in a tough time getting there As a practical matter, I actually read that you're acting head of public health. She said that you don't have the money for the distribution right now. Is that right? Look, there's no federal money. There's not much federal money, so we're working. It is best we can. Deirdre Gifford is amazing. She's leading our vaccination committee. But if the Feds don't step up, we do have a $3 billion Rainy day fund and it's raining germs. And this is the We're not gonna pinch pennies when it comes to getting the vaccine out that everybody is needed. What do you looking for? From the Biden administration? Let's jump ahead just a little bit, too. January 20. What would you like to see for the Biden administration? What do you hope for? What do you need? Number one. Let's all speak with one voice when it comes to the mask when it comes to social distancing. We had a dissonance over the last, you know, eight months, and that was confusing message to people. You know, number two in terms of support. What we need is let's put in place a really strategic vaccination playing less fun, Dad, So Oliver or 50 states are working, you know, in lock step, so we get this done appropriately. And thoroughly some state local aid in particular for the small businesses to help us power through so we can avoid what could be a real knee knocking recession. Let's talk about what it's challenge changing Connecticut student who lives in Connecticut. What do you see in terms of immigration into Connecticut, for example, from New York, and for that matter, outgoing from Connecticut to other states? I think we've added Probably 30,000 families have moved into Connecticut in the last five or six months. Overwhelmingly coming from New York. They want toe less congested environment, maybe a backyard. Maybe it's easier to self quarantine. Our schools are open, so But I don't wish l of New York were part of the greater New York ecosystem. To me. It's still the global capital of the world that we're gonna work through this together. What about that cooperation is I understand that you've been meeting with other regional governors. I think maybe you did. Just last weekend. What comes out of that? What do you talk about? What do you come up with? Is an approach. Well, David, um I could do something with bars. I could do something restaurants. But if Angela Cuomo and the Charlie Baker up in Massachusetts were not on the same page, it's really meaningless. We've got thousands and thousands of college kids coming back to our region. Some I'm coming from the University of South Dakota, where you have, you know, 40% infection rate. So we wanted to be very clear. Get the message out the universities and airlines in some cases that you have to test before you get on that plane, quarantine and test When you land, That's how you're going to keep your family safe in your community Safe. Well, how is that working is approximately Kristen Connect. You got some pretty prominent institutions of higher learning. I will call them your colleges. Universities are run out. What are you doing with people leaving your state? And what do you talking doing with college kids coming back into your state. As we approached the holidays. We were given the same council to our existing colleges. Because we're sending thousands of kids back across the country. Test these kids before they leave. Do their. You know their states a favor, Just like we're asking other universities that test the Connecticut kids before they come back here. Go to you mentioned the 30,000 families moved into Connecticut. Have you had some outflow particular Because of the tax situations. We've heard reports of some people would like to move to. For example, Florida are you losing prominent people from Connecticut? Well, first of all, the number one state where people leave Connecticut to go to his New York I think we're all part of the same original system there that it's California, but you're right, Florida people of a certain age. They do my great the Florida They've been doing that before we had income tax and after we had an income tax, but I'm just really pleased to Connecticut's getting younger. A lot of young families move into this state. I feel like we've got the window are back there and we've got to take advantage of that. You mentioned earlier Governor your rainy day fund talk about that because they were projections that I think we're like $2.5 billion deficit. Something in August and now you're down to one billion. I think your credit rating is actually improved his results. How'd you do that? Well, we put in place a rainy day fund. Uh, so the Legislature couldn't spend that money and we had a savings in case there was a crisis or of revenues. Collapse wouldn't have to raise taxes to slash social services. So we've got about 15% of our budget. Um Assaulted away. But this is the time probably to put it to use especially when it comes to public health, especially when it comes to more testing more track.
