At UN Climate Summit, Biden ‘Apologizes’ For Trump’s Paris Accord Withdrawal, Says Climate Change Threatens “Very Life of The Planet”
President Biden: “I apologize we ever pulled out of the agreement.”
A day after suggesting that he might run for reelection in 2024 despite his declining cognitive abilities, President Joe Biden has declared that climate change threatens the “very life of the planet.”
Speaking at the United Nations’ climate conference (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, President Biden apologized before a gathering of world leaders for President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement and pledged to meet the emissions targets mandated by it.
“The sum total of the actions my administration is taking puts the United States on track to achieve our Paris Agreement goal of reducing emissions by 50 to 52 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030,” President Biden said Friday.
“I apologize we ever pulled out of the agreement,” the leader of the Free World sheepishly told the attendees of the UN summit.
The Paris Agreement, an Obama White House-sponsored global climate pact, suffered a massive blow when President Donald pulled the U.S. out of the framework in 2017. The agreement, which according to the Trump administration would result in the loss of millions of U.S. jobs and trillions of dollars to the economy, went against the grain of his ‘America First’ policy.
The TV channel France24 reported Biden’s remarks:
President Joe Biden told the COP27 conference Friday the “very life of the planet” is at stake in the climate crisis as he gave an assurance that the United States is on track to slash carbon emissions.
“The climate crisis is about human security, economic security, environmental security, national security and the very life of the planet,” he told an audience at the conference in Egypt.
Biden said the United States is “on track” to achieve its pledge of cutting emissions 50-52 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.
“The United States will meet our emissions targets,” he said, laying out major legislation passed under his presidency, including the largest ever US government investment in clean energy. (…)
“Every nation needs to step up. At this gathering, we must renew and raise our climate ambitions,” he said in a speech that lasted about 22 minutes and was briefly interrupted by unidentified people in the crowd making howling noises.
“It’s a duty and responsibility of global leadership. Countries that are in a position to help should be supporting developing countries so they can make decisive climate decisions — facilitating their energy transitions, building a path to prosperity compatible with our climate imperative.”
The Price of Biden’s Climate Policies
In June 2017, President Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, citing its adverse effect on the American job market and economic growth. “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States,” he said. “The agreement is a massive redistribution of United States wealth to other countries.”
Following the diktats of the globalist climate accord for the next two decades will cost the U.S. economy “close to $3 trillion in lost GDP and 6.5 million industrial jobs, while households would have $7,000 less income,” the Trump White House estimated in 2017 as it pulled out of the climate framework.
After the 2020 presidential election, Biden declared that the “United States will rejoin the Paris Agreement on day one of my presidency.” He appointed John Kerry, the chief architect of the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, the new White House Climate Tsar, and signed up for the globalist climate agenda — hook, line and sinker.
After President Trump left office, the UN has become even more audacious in its climate demands. In December 2020, UN chief Antonio Guterres called on the “all leaders worldwide to declare a State of Climate Emergency in their countries until carbon neutrality is reached.”DONATE
