“Biden’s Climate Diplomacy Has Already Begun”

“A few days after being declared president-elect, Joe Biden is already conferring with heads of state about a crisis he sees as on par with the coronavirus pandemic and economic recession: climate change.

Biden elevated the issue of rising temperatures in talks on Tuesday with four European leaders.

Biden and his soon-to-be counterparts in Great Britain, France, Germany and Ireland discussed tackling climate change in separate calls, according to a readout from the transition team. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau committed to working with Biden on climate change during a Monday call.”

Dino Grandoni reports for the Washington Post November 11, 2020.
