President Biden is setting a goal to reduce U.S. Greenhouse Gas emissions by at least 50% over the next 10 years.
He unveiled the plan today, Earth Day, at his international climate summit with leaders from China, India and other countries.
The new U.S. target is almost double that of the nation’s earlier Paris Climate Agreement commitment.
