A Biden Victory Could Spur Global Climate Action, but the U.S. Has Much to Prove
The US presidential election on 3 November is a critical moment for global climate action.
Joe Biden has promised to “lead a major diplomatic push” to raise countries’ climate ambition and put the US “back in the driver’s seat”. His opponent, Donald Trump, has repeatedly dismissed climate science.
It also left wiggle room for potential negotiations on raising ambition with a Biden administration, said Fang Zhang, of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at the Fletcher School, Tufts University, Massachusetts.
