U.S. Rejoins Paris Climate Agreement

President Biden told leaders of the Group of 7 nations that climate change was a priority for his administration as the United States formally rejoined the Paris climate agreement on Friday.

We can no longer delay or do the bare minimum to address climate change. This is a global existential crisis. And we’ll all suffer, we’ll all suffer the consequences if we fail. We have to rapidly accelerate our commitments to aggressively curb our emissions and to hold one another accountable for meeting our goals and increasing our ambitions. That’s why, as president, I immediately rejoined the Paris agreement. And as of today, the United States is officially, once again, a party to the Paris agreement, which we helped put together. On Earth Day, I will host a Leaders Summit to help drive a more ambitious actions among the top emitters, including domestic climate action here in the United States. I am grateful, I’m grateful for Europe’s continued leadership on climate issues over the last four years. Together, we need to invest in the technological innovations that are going to power our clean energy futures and enable us to build clean energy solutions to global markets.
