Nancy Pelosi addressed the United Nations Climate Change summit in Glasgow, Scotland this week; telling the audience Joe Biden has bravely been fighting global warming since 1986.
“We’re proud of our president. He was one of the first people in Congress in 1986 to introduce legislation to address the climate crisis. He takes great pride in that. He’s worked on it ever since,” said the Speaker of the House.

“Our legislation is far reaching, ensuring that [the] future economy is greener and cleaner,” she added.
“That means $250 billion in clean energy tax credits to develop and deploy the latest in future generations of clean power,” Pelosi said. “That means over $100 billion in addition for resilience including climate-smart agriculture and nature-based climate solutions; another $100 billion toward local- and region-led climate solutions … and over $222 billion for environmental justice.”
“That is our plan — to pass the bill the week of November 15, as is indicated in our statements that were made at the time of passing the infrastructure bill,” the speaker said.

DOOMSDAY DELAYED? India Says It Will Be Carbon Neutral... By 2070
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told the UN Climate Summit in Scotland Monday that his nation will achieve “net-zero” carbon emissions by 2070.
“India is committed to achieving net-zero emissions by 2070 and generating 50 percent of its power from renewable energy by 2030, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) on Monday,” reports The Hill.
“Modi, calling the pledges part of ‘a gift of five elixirs,’ also vowed to increase the country’s non-fossil fuel energy capacity to 500 gigawatts, reduce total projected carbon emissions by 1 billion tons and reduce India’s carbon intensity by 45 percent — all by 2030,” adds the outlet.

“All of us are aware of the reality that the promises made so far on climate finance have only proved to be hollow,” Modi said.
“We are all increasing our ambitions with respect to climate action,” he continued. “The world’s ambitions with respect to climate finance cannot be at the same level as they were during the Paris Agreement.”

Biden appeared to doze off Monday during the opening remarks of the UN’s COP26 Summit.
“Biden appears to fall asleep during COP26 opening speeches,” posted a reporter with the Washington Post on Twitter.
The footage comes days after Biden met with French President Macron; telling the European leader the US arms sale to Australia was “clumsy.”
“Is your relationship repaired?” asked one reporter in Rome
“The answer is, I think we, uh, what happened, was uh, to use an English phrase… uh… clumsy,” said the American President.
Climate Czar John Kerry caused a stir on social media earlier this month after telling a French TV network that Joe Biden had “literally had not been aware” of the United States’ Nuclear submarine deal with Australia.
“President Biden asked me about it. And I told him about it. He asked me what the situation was. He had not been aware of that. He had literally not been aware of what had transpired,” said Kerry. “The President is very committed to strengthening the relationship.”
