US President Joe Biden apologized to world leaders at the COP26 summit on Monday for actions taken by the administration of former President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.
“Our meeting here in Glasgow is not the end of the journey… we all know that,” Biden said at a work and solidarity event in Glasgow, adding that “it’s just a starting line… We have the tools that I think we have the knowledge and we have the resources. I think we have to make some choices.”
Biden stressed that climate change costs the world a lot of money due to fires, floods, lack of agricultural land, and others, explaining that the United States is suffering from this climate change, and therefore we must face this challenge like the challenge of the Corona epidemic through cooperation, and no one can face these challenges alone.
He said: “We have polluted the climate and the environment, and it is imperative to change our practices and preserve the planet. This is what we are doing in the United States. We must harness technology to increase the efficiency of alternative energy. We will work to reduce greenhouse gases by 2030 by relying on alternative sources of energy.” clean electric energy, etc.
