Biden Pledged U.S. Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions 50 Percent by 2030

President Biden pledged the U.S. will reduce carbon emissions from the 2005 levels by approximately 50 percent by the year 2030.

Biden made the declaration from the White House during the virtual Earth Day Climate Summit with world leaders.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The climate summit is aimed at jump-starting negotiations for a global deal to curb emissions world-wide. The event features 40 heads of state, with allies and rivals such as Russia and China among them.

Vice President Kamala Harris commented on social media.

Day one of the two-day virtual event was posted online.

While China is the world’s biggest polluter, Biden avoided pointing out the elephant in the room during his remarks.

Approximately $5.7 billion was offered by Biden to assist foreign nations to cut their emissions.

The New York Times reports:

The Biden administration said it plans to offer an estimated $5.7 billion a year by 2024. In a statement, the White House said that it would “work closely with Congress to meet these goals.”

Climate activists demonstrated in Washington, D.C.

The online event didn’t appear to be popular.

Importantly, the U.S. is reducing emissions more than other countries.

Overall, Biden wants the U.S. to have a goal of net-zero emissions economy by 2050 even though “America represents less than 15 percent of the world’s emissions.”

Biden’s climate change plans are a major step in the wrong direction as he continues to execute his America Last agenda.
