Joe Biden has said he would immediately return the United States to the Paris accord if elected president, a day after Washington withdrew from the climate change pact.
Trump Administration officially left the Paris Climate Agreement on Thursday morning
Joe Biden says his administration will rejoin it if elected and proposed a $1.7 trillion plan to take the US, the world’s second-biggest carbon emitter, to net-zero by 2050.
Biden views the fuel as a “bridge” to renewable energy and says he won’t ban fracking.
Environmentalists say Trump’s announcement that he would withdraw from the Paris agreement three years ago made it easier for countries such as Australia, Saudi Arabia and Brazil to soften their own ambitions.
