President Joe Biden on Earth Day vowed to slash U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 52%—compared to 2005 levels—by 2030, as part of a broader goal of achieving net-zero emissions in the country by 2050.

“These steps will set America on a path of a net-zero emissions economy by no later than 2050,” Biden told a virtual climate summit, attended by 40 leaders from around the world, Thursday morning as he announced the new emissions goal.

“Scientists tell us that this is the decisive decade, this is the decade we must make decisions that will avoid the worst consequences of a climate crisis,” Biden said.

“This is a moral imperative. An economic imperative. A moment of peril, but also a moment of extraordinary possibilities,” the president added.

The new greenhouse target more than doubles the United States’ previous target under the 2015 Paris climate agreement, when the Obama administration aimed to reduce emissions 26% to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025. Currently, the U.S. has not yet reached the halfway point in achieving that goal.

Last month the Biden administration appointed Sam Brinton to serve as deputy assistant secretary of spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy at the Department of Energy. Brinton is an MIT-trained engineer whose sexual fetishes include tying up his partner while he eats dinner and watches Star Trek, reports The Washington Examiner.

Prior to become high up the in the Office of Nuclear Energy, Brinton worked at the gay and transgender suicide prevention organization the Trevor Project. Even before that, Brinton has “a history of promoting sexual fetishes and kinks related to animal role-playing” adds the Examiner.

Libs of Tik Tok posted a photo of Brinton, wearing a black dress and heels, standing over three men with sexual fetish leather masks on the ground. The photo of the administration’s new hire quickly went viral.

“This is Sam Brinton – a drag queen and LGBTQ + activist who was just hired to a top level position at the DOE” the tweet read.

The student newspaper at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from 2017 explains how Brinton held a discussion on kinks and sex education at the campus. “Throughout the entire talk, Brinton was open about his experiences, the kinks he partakes in, and the nature of his relationships” the article stated.

It continued, “he left us with countless anecdotes, like how he enjoys tying up his significant other like a table, and eating his dinner on him while he watches Star Trek.”

Brinton holds a master’s degree in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also previously advised former President Donald Trump on nuclear waste matters. The Department of Energy did not respond to a request for comment, reports the Examiner.

Senior analyst for Strategy, Center for Security Policy, J Michael Waller tweeted the Examiner’s article with a photo of Brinton wearing a dress and makeup on what appears to be some sort of red carpet event.
