President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will travel to Europe in two weeks, the White House said in a statement Thursday, with the global climate crisis at the forefront of the president’s agenda.

The trip will mark the second overseas trip of the Biden presidency, and it comes as he tries to take action to address the threats of global climate change. It also signals his new commitment to global allies in the wake of former President Donald Trump’s tumultuous relations with other nations.

Biden will visit Vatican City for the first time on October 20. 29 to meet with Pope Francis. They intend to discuss efforts to combat the climate crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic, and poverty, among other controversial issues globally, according to the statement.

The president will then attend a two-day summit of G-20 leaders in Rome, according to the press release.

The leaders are expected to decide whether to approve an international tax plan developed in July by the financial leaders of the Group of 20 major economies. The plan would set a global minimum corporate tax of at least 15% and change the way companies like Amazon and Alphabet’s Google are taxed.

Details on individual bilateral commitments will be released shortly, according to the press release.

Biden will complete his trip by traveling to Glasgow, Scotland, where he will attend the United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change, or COP26, from November 1-2, according to the press release.

COP26, which was originally due to take place in 2020 but was delayed due to the pandemic, will see world leaders gather to discuss more ambitious climate action as UN researchers warn that global warming is dangerously close to spiraling out of range. control.

The UN released a damning report in August that issued a strong warning about climate change. In the first installment of four reports published under the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the researchers looked at changes in the climate that were projected to be “irreversible for hundreds or thousands of years.”

For example, reports found that greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are responsible for about 1.1 degrees Celsius of warming from around 1850-1900 to the present day. It also found that global temperatures are expected to reach or exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius warming, on average over the next 20 years.

The Biden administration is committed to cutting America’s greenhouse gas emissions by nearly half by 2030 and achieving a net zero economy by mid-century. The Obama administration had set a goal of cutting emissions as much as 28% below 2005 levels by 2025, but Trump halted federal efforts to reach that goal.

In May, the president also issued an executive order requiring the development of a government-wide climate change risk strategy and an annual assessment of climate-related financial risks in the US budget.

Democrats are trying to pass a bill that will encourage the adoption of green energy and the construction of weather-resistant buildings and infrastructure as part of the president’s economic plan.
However, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that Democrats will likely have to cut $ 1 trillion or more from their $ 3.5 million social and climate safety net proposal to push it through Congress amid disputes. between the progressive and moderate wings of the party.
