Biden warns of the consequences of climate change

“Climate change is the existential threat to humanity,” said Biden on Thursday evening (local time) at a town hall event on CNN. He was confident that Congress would soon find a compromise on his proposed budget and infrastructure package. This also included important climate protection measures, said Biden. He will also campaign for progress at the World Climate Conference in Glasgow.

When asked by a citizen, Biden said that there was resistance in the Senate to a planned measure of his infrastructure package to promote renewable energies in the amount of 150 billion US dollars. However, the amount could possibly be used for other subsidies for environmentally friendly technologies. This could save “a significant amount of money and, as a result, a significant amount of energy,” said Biden. The promotion of such technologies will also create many new jobs.
