A United Nations climate conference that President Biden attended, took place on Monday November first in Glasgow, Scotland.

A new legislative framework will be introduced, becoming the largest action ever taken by the United States to address climate change. This $555 billion plan will be enacted in order to help the climate.

Biden’s goal is to cut carbon pollution in half by 2030 in the United States. The fact that President Biden is the one bringing back this plan shows the world that the U.S. is capable and ready to handle this.

“It’s a real signal to the world that the U.S. is back and demonstrating leadership on climate change,” said Tiernan Sittenfeld, senior vice president of the League of Conservation Voters.

Biden’s plan will also include more than $300 billion in tax incentives for renewable energy such as solar power and wind, as well as boosts in nuclear power and increase number of electric vehicles.

The plan will spend around $100 billion in order to address wildfires, hurricanes and droughts. A program will also be enacted to create thousands of jobs building trails, restoring streams and helping prevent wildfires.

Biden also made a plan to double financial aid to poorer nations to $11.4 billion by 2024 in order to bring those countries cleaner energy.

The U.S. can now tell China and other major polluters: “We set an ambitious goal. We’ve taken the first meaningful steps toward meeting that goal. What are you going to do?’’ said Larson, who worked in the Energy Department under President Barack Obama
