Democrats in the middle ground remain mute as Biden avoids Senate confirmation to succeed John Kerry.

Late last month, White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan announced that John Podesta, the head of clean energy, would "continue to lead our global climate efforts" in a new position assisting the global switch to green energy, and that Secretary of State John Kerry would shortly resign from his position. 

However, Podesta will now serve as the president's top advisor on foreign climate policy, according to the White House.

While Podesta will be coordinating policy with the SPEC office from the White House, Kerry's team will report to another State Department official.

Kerry will resign from his position as special presidential envoy for climate (SPEC), but Biden will not choose a direct replacement.

 While a result of the deal, Podesta may avoid the Senate confirmation that Congress has demanded, as the SPEC position will remain unfilled.

The current SPEC state team will report to Rich Verma, the deputy secretary of state for management and resources, upon Secretary Kerry's departure," a White House official told Fox News Digital. 

John will maintain his strong collaboration with the State Department while supervising the White House Office of Clean Energy Innovation and Implementation."
