The US is setting out to cut greenhouse gases in half by the end of the decade

President Biden welcomes leaders from around the globe to the two-day Leaders Summit on Climate.

POTUS and VPOTUS entered the east room at 8.04 am. At 8.07 am POTUS, standing at a lectern, said: “When people talk about climate, I think jobs.”

President Biden talked about his infrastructure plan creating jobs and investing in clean energy.

“The science is undeniable. The cost of inaction keeps mounting.”

He said he sees an opportunity to create millions of jobs.

The US is setting out to cut greenhouse gases in half by the end of the decade, he added. But he noted: “No nation can solve this crisis on our own.”


“Scientists tell us this is the decisive decade.”

“Countries that take decisive action now... will reap economic benefits in the future.”

“We have to move, we have to move quickly to meet these challenges.”

POTUS sat down at 8.15 am.

Earlier VPOTUS said. “As a global community, it is imperative we act quickly and together to confront this crisis.”

She noted that disadvantaged communities are hardest hit by climate change around the world.
