The United States has formally returned to the Paris Climate Agreement and the global fight against climate change. The Biden administration plans to drastically reduce harmful emissions over the next 30 years.
Scientists and foreign diplomats welcomed the US decision. President Biden ordered a return to the Paris Climate Agreement on the very first day of his presidency. Officially, this happened on the 30th day of his presidency.
The 2015 Climate Change Agreement is now signed by more than 200 countries. The United States is the only country that has left this agreement. The decision was made by America during the administration of President Donald Trump.
US Climate Ambassador John Kerry will take part in an online meeting today dedicated to returning to the US agreement. The meeting is attended by the Ambassadors of the United Kingdom and Italy, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and UN Climate Envoy Michael Bloomberg.
Biden has promised that America plans to reduce harmful emissions to zero by 2050. Scientists applaud the president’s decision, stressing that emissions should be halved by 2030. This is what they consider to be the main tool in the fight against global warming and climate change.
