North AmericaJoe Biden holds online climate consultations with national security staff

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris met virtually with national security and climate policy staff to discuss ways to meet the president-elect’s wide-ranging and ambitious international climate commitments

Washington: Joe Biden’s transition team has announced in a statement today that has conducted virtual climate consultations with national security staff. According to a statement, Biden reiterated his intention to ensure climate change is a core national security priority.

The Monday statement says, “Today President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris met virtually with national security and climate policy staff to discuss ways to meet the president-elect’s wide-ranging and ambitious international climate commitments, including rejoining the Paris Agreement on his first day in office.”

In 2017, US President Donald Trump announced that the US was exiting the UN-brokered Paris climate agreement, a move that officially took effect on November 4 this year. Biden has promised to recommit the US to the pact.

Last week, former US Secretary of State and newly-appointed Biden administration climate envoy, John Kerry, said that the international community must raise its ambition in fighting global environmental problems because the Paris Agreement alone cannot end the crisis.
