Biden Urges Global ‘Ambition’ and ‘Innovation’ to Fight Climate Change

At the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, President Biden warned that the world only has “a brief window” to combat the growing impacts of climate change and described the crisis as an opportunity to drive worldwide economic growth and job gains.

The science is clear. We only have a brief window left before us to raise our ambitions and to raise to meet the task that’s rapidly narrowing. This is the decisive decade in which we have an opportunity to prove ourselves. We can keep the goal of limiting global warming to just 1.5 degrees Celsius within our reach if we come together. If we commit to doing our part of each of our nations with determination and with ambition, that’s what COP26 is all about. Glasgow must be the kick off of a decade, a decade of ambition and innovation to preserve our shared future. Climate change is already ravaging the world. We’ve heard from many speakers. It’s not hypothetical. It’s not a hypothetical threat, it is destroying people’s lives and livelihoods, and doing it every single day. It’s costing our nations trillions of dollars. But ladies and gentlemen, within the growing catastrophe, I believe there’s an incredible opportunity not just for the United States, but for all of us. We’re standing at an inflection point in world history. We have the ability to invest in ourselves and build an equitable, clean energy future and in the process, create millions of good paying jobs and opportunities around the world.
