Watch: President Biden Announces 50% Emissions Reduction Target By 2030 At Global Climate Summit

|

Leaders from dozens of countries attended the first day of President Biden's virtual global summit on climate change Thursday. Chinese President Xi Jinping, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, and Biden's special envoy for climate change John Kerry were among the headliners on the first day ahead of President Biden's remarks.

Biden is expected to announce a target for 50% Carbon emissions reduction by 2030.

"These steps will set America on a path of net zero emissions economy by no later than 2050," Biden said from the White House. "But the truth is, America represents less than 50 percent of the world's emissions. No nation can solve this crisis on our own, as I know you all fully understand."


"This is the decade we must make decisions that will avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis," Biden said. "We can't resign ourselves to that future. We have to take action on this, and this summit is our first step on the road we'll travel together."
