President Biden appealed to the delegates of the UN Climate Summit COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland to restrain arguments and do something positive as “there’s no more time to hang back or sit on the fence or argue among ourselves.”
Biden also mentioned that the U.S. will reduce carbon emissions by 50%-52% with respect to 2005 levels by 2030. He said the action will demonstrate to the world as the U.S. is not only back at the table but will hopefully lead by the power of our example.
Biden said with marking a point that his administration is working overtime to show that our climate commitment is not limited by words only, but action.
In his speech at the COP26 summit, he also committed that the U.S. is working seriously to become a “net-zero emissions economy” within 2050. He also mentioned the supporting mind of the US to help other nations to meet the limit as “We want to do more to help countries around the world, especially developing countries, accelerate their clean energy transition, address pollution and ensure the world we all must share a cleaner, safer, and a healthier planet. And we have an obligation to help,” he said.
The plan is to launch a new program called PREPARE to help developing countries to adapt to climate change estimated an aid of $3 billion per Anum fiscal by 2024, waits for approval of Congress.
Biden’s national climate adviser, Gina McCarthy, his carbon reduction plan “illustrates how, within three decades, the U.S. can meet our global climate commitments by decarbonizing the power sector, electrifying transportation and buildings, transforming industry, reducing non-CO2 emissions, and reinvigorating our natural lands.”
Bottom Line: President Joe Biden appealed to the world to focus on reducing carbon emission without arguing & blaming each other with a commitment to achieve a net-zero level within 2050 by the US with support to developing countries to meet their target.
