Cómo enfrentará el presidente electo Biden el riesgo climático

By Ninian Carter

November 9, 2020 - El presidente electo de EUA Joe Biden promete crear una economía con neutralidad de carbono para 2050, revirtiendo muchas ordenes ejecutivas de Donald Trump.

Joe Biden is to oversee sweeping measures to make the U.S. economy carbon neutral by 2050, in an attempt to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.

The agenda to reverse about 80 climate roll-backs initiated by President Trump, will likely begin by rejoining the 2015 Paris Agreement which the U.S. officially exited the day after the election. The United States is now the only country in the world refusing to participate in global climate efforts.

From then on, Biden's tasks will become increasingly complex as his administration attempts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions down towards a goal of net-zero.
