President Biden made his final swing on Tuesday in Colorado for his $1 trillion legislation on two-party infrastructures and his $3.5 trillion expenditures proposal.

Biden visited Golden, Colorado, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, prior he made his presentation to monitor tests on wind turbines and innovative battery technology.

“Here’s the good news: Something that is caused by humans can be solved by humans,” Biden said. He deemed the need for a clean-energy future an “economic imperative and a national security imperative” and said that there was no time to waste as the impact of climate change seems to grow more severe by the year.

President Biden also visited regions hit by wildfires in California on Monday and last week visited places devastated by flash floods on the Eastern Coast to support their legislation by using natural catastrophes to show how necessary their climate agenda was.

“We can do that, we can do all of this in a way that creates good jobs, lowers costs to consumers and businesses, and makes us global leaders,” the president said.

On a recent trip he examined a huge windmill blade on the ground outside the laboratory and had a wind turbine-based technological showcase, Biden talked about "more jobs for the economy."

On Monday Biden had visited areas and getting briefings on the terrible Wildfire season and looked at the devastation caused by the Caldor Fire to towns near Lake Tahoe in Boise, Idaho, and Sacramento, CA,

Reporters questioned Biden Tuesday whether he would sign a reconciliation bill with reduced climate change measures. "I am up for further climate measures," Biden said.

When asked if Biden would be willing to back down from his $3.5 trillion requests, principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told media on the flight to Colorado that there had been no calls between Biden and Manchin to read out, but that the White House is in continuous interaction with lawmakers and their staff.
