  • But climate experts say it's needed.

  • Biden understands time is short and intends toe act vigorously and with the greatest ambition of any US president ever internationally, where he is huge authority and that means huge incentives for other countries to reduce their emissions even as he tries to regulate US emissions ourselves.

  • Oh my God, fires, droughts and all kinds of extreme weather are set to intensify as global temperatures rise.

  • So Mr Biden promises action on his very first day in office.

  • His pledge to rejoin the Paris agreement negotiated five years ago amid great celebrations.
