World leaders gather at the COP-26 Climate Conference

National

(WLAX/WEUX) – President Biden was among more than 130 world leaders attending the UN climate change conference COP-26 yesterday, where they will try to tackle the threat of global warming.

His goal is to show the US is back in the game on climate in a serious way after former president Trump pulled the US from the Paris Climate Agreement.

Biden says the summit must kick off a decade of ambition.

“We meet with the eyes of history upon us, and a profound question before us. It’s simple, will we act? Will we do what’s necessary? Will we seize the enormous opportunity before us or will condemn future generations to suffer? This is the decade that will determine the answer, this decade. The science is clear, we only have a brief window before us to raise our ambitions and to meet the task that’s rapidly narrowing.”

Cop-26 runs in Glasgow through November 12.
