Biden pledges to slash greenhouse gas emissions in half

President Joe Biden has pledged to reduce the U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 50% to 52% by 2030 on Thursday. This announcement came on Earth Day, which signals the urgent need to combat climate change. This target is more than doubles the country’s prior commitment under the 2015 Paris climate agreement.

“This is the decisive decade,” Biden said at the summit on Thursday. “As a result, this is seen as a moment of extraordinary possibilities.” The U.K. and European Union have committed to slashing emissions by 68% and 55% respectively by 2030.

During the Summit, Chinese President Xi Jinping repeated the country’s commitments towards green development. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi also called for action on climate change and announced an India-U.S. Climate and Clean Energy Agenda Partnership for 2030.

A strong plan and commitment are required for every country in order to reach the net-zero target by 2050. Under the Paris Accord, countries try to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius. And thus, it requires every country to come together to wage war against climate change.
