(by Renee Nal | RAIR Foundation) – Without approval of Americans through their representatives in Congress, the Biden team has formed the First Movers Coalition with the World Economic Forum. The effort includes major corporations such as Amazon, Apple, Bank of America, Boeing and others, who have pledged to *force* a demand for “green” products.
There is no legislation authorizing this initiative, but Biden does not need congressional approval if nobody challenges him. As the Republican party looks in the opposite direction, the State Department website explains:
…the First Movers Coalition was created through a partnership between the U.S. State Department’s U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and the Office of Global Partnerships, and the World Economic Forum, in collaboration with the U.S. Departments of Commerce and Energy.
Yes, that would be the same World Economic Forum that wants citizens to get used to the idea of eating bugs and whose leader Klaus Schaub wants the citizens of the world to have chips implanted in their brains.
While Biden’s goal is ostensibly to stop global warming by getting to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, those creating the products – such as so-called “green steel” – will be strongly rewarded. “Participating companies will commit to buying low-carbon products by 2030 to help develop green supply chains and meet the world’s climate goals,” explains coalition partner World Economic Forum:
Members of the coalition – a partnership between the US Office of the Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry and the World Economic Forum – will commit to buying low-carbon products by 2030 to help develop green supply chains and meet the climate goals.
It is unclear how Bill Gates is involved, but John Kerry mentions him at the launch of the project, along with Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission:

Leftist activists are using the occasion to pressure coalition member Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to give money to third world countries “to help them transition to low-carbon economies”.
Watch a brief video of Joe Biden announcing the First Movers Coalition:
The effort is reminiscent to Obama/Biden’s failed green stimulus initiative, which squandered billions of taxpayer money on cronies. At the time, the Washington Post observed:
...fully 71 percent of the Obama Energy Department’s grants and loans went to ‘individuals who were bundlers, members of Obama’s National Finance Committee, or large donors to the Democratic Party.’”
