SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt – President Joe Biden’s drop-in at a global UN conference on climate change on Friday comes on the heels of the most momentous climate legislation in the nation’s history.
But his appearance at the COP27 is expected to be greeted with frustration on the part of many nations, who feel the U.S. has done too little, too late, to confront global warming.
Biden is unlikely to be able to fulfill a promise to put $11 billion toward international climate aid by 2024 with Republicans expected to gain control of Congress.
His administration said this week that it is considering other ideas that have been floating around the summit to help low-income countries that are emitting fewer greenhouse gases but are projected to be hurt the most by global warming.
