Joe Biden vows out  his vision for a greener economy to halve emissions by 2030

US President Joe Biden has announced that the United States would cut its greenhouse gas emissions by half by 2030 as part of the country's efforts to combat climate change. He also urged world leaders to significantly accelerate their own plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or risk a disastrous collective failure to stop catastrophic climate change.

As per sources who told a leading international daily, in an address opening 'Leaders Summit on Climate', Biden laid out his vision for a greener economy in which climate change is taken seriously across all sectors and results in more jobs for the blue-collar workers he has focused on throughout his career.

Biden thanked world leaders for taking part in the summit stating that "your leadership on this issue is a statement to every nation especially our young people who were ready to meeting this moment." "Meeting this moment is more than preserving the planet. It is about providing a better future for all of us.

That's why, when we talk about climate, I think about jobs," he said. Biden said he sees "an opportunity to create millions of good-paying middle-class union jobs.”. Within our climate response lies an extraordinary job creation and economic opportunity ready to be fired up," Biden said, going on to urge investment in infrastructure. "I want to build critical infrastructure to produce and deploy clean technology, both those we can harness today and those we will invent tomorrow.”

Vice President Kamala Harris made brief introductory remarks ahead of Biden, saying "As a global community, it is imperative that we act quickly and together," she said, calling for innovation and collaboration "around the world."
