Biden before climate summit in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt: “The life of the planet is at risk”

US President Joe Biden said today, Friday, while attending the work of the world climate summit “COP 27” held in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh that the life of the planet is in danger.

He explained that “our mission is to avoid an environmental catastrophe and switch to green energy,” noting that droughts and floods are devastating the countries of the African continent as a result of the climate changes they are witnessing.

“Climate change has weakened many countries around the world,” he noted.

He said, “We have made progress in investing and preparing the infrastructure for the clean energy transition.”

Biden emphasized a commitment to “combat climate change and provide clean energy resources to counteract global warming and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Biden announced $150 million to help African countries adapt to the challenges they face as a result of climate change.

He said his country will meet its emissions reduction targets by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement targets.

Biden emphasized that the climate crisis is about human and economic security.

Regarding the Russian war in Ukraine, Biden said, “We are going through difficult days and we face challenges arising from the fallout from the war Russia started against Ukraine.”

Biden arrived in Sharm El-Sheikh earlier today to attend the COP27 climate change conference, accompanied by his Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken.

The US President was received at Sharm el-Sheikh Airport by the Egyptian Minister for Planning and Economic Development, Hala Al-Saeed.
