Back in Paris pact, US vows no more sidelining of climate

The United States officially returned to the Paris global climate accord on Friday, and President Joe Biden and other U.S. leaders declared the nation could not afford to sideline the growing climate crisis again.
“We can no longer delay or do the bare minimum to address climate change. This is a global existential crisis, and all of us will suffer if we fail,” Biden told European leaders at a Munich security conference by video Friday.

The Biden administration says it will settle on a tougher new target for the U.S. emissions cuts by the time Biden hosts a planned Earth Day global summit for world leaders, April 22.
Biden signed an executive order on his first day in office reversing the pullout ordered by Trump. The Trump administration had…
