The fight against climate change offers better economic opportunities. U.S. President Joe Biden said this on the second day of the Digital Climate Summit that began in Washington.
According to Biden, the new policies could create millions of well-paid jobs worldwide. Among other things, he pointed to the expansion of electric mobility and the commitment to renewable energy sources.
Biden reiterated that the United States wants to play a key role in the fight against climate change. This marks a significant shift from the policies of his predecessor Donald Trump.
Biden openly referred to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech. Despite the many political conflicts between Russia and the West, Putin described climate change in his speech on Thursday. The Russians insisted that the entire world community must work together in the fight against global warming.
Calling on Putin to promote Putin’s message, Biden said he expects the United States to work with Moscow on the issue.
