Biden reclaiming America’s leadership role on the international stage. It’s great given conservatives have forced the US into a position of lagging behind China in renewable energy sources, which will result in America’s dependence on China in the future as oil falls by the wayside.

Some said Putin will not want to meet because of the recently imposed sanctions, but Biden was right: Putin will never pass up an opportunity to be on the world stage. For him, and for "Russia", pride is a major motivating factor. Biden was also right to invite Putin. We need all countries, despite their human rights records, to participate in order to stop climate change. China will be there, after all, and they are arguably even worse than Russia on individual rights.

Good job pulling it together, Biden.

Old Joe's on a roll and, let's hope, over Putin and his corrupt gang of thieves and assassins.

The pandemic is obviously the first priority right now, but it is good to see that other importan issues are not completely forgotten.

Yes, and put America and Americans on the back of the line.

It’s great given conservatives have forced the US into a position of lagging behind China in renewable energy sources,

At the same time China and India as the worlds biggest polluters can continue to build and advance their societies as well as building up their military, so while they forge ahead, we’re constrained because we need to embrace the new Green Deal? No wonder our adversaries love Biden. Who could blame them?

which will result in America’s dependence on China in the future as oil falls by the wayside

We were energy dependent but the Dems canceled that check. 2022 can’t come fast enough.

After four years of retreat, running away, and pouting, the US is once again taking a leadership role in international organizations, ensuring our national interests are voiced and addressed.

Trump did nothing but turn tail - handing over the leadership role, and influence, to Russia and China...

Which started before his administration that stupid photo op if that reset Russian summit where Hillary brought and gave Lavrov that comical button was the beginning of Russia inching towards China not to mention her meddling in the Russia elections didn’t help either. Besides verbal rhetoric and political posturing Biden and the Dems with the exception of sanctions won’t do anything.

Biden will put all the costs for the climate change hysteria he has helped create on the US - and China will get away with vague promises to do something in 2060 - long after they have destroyed the US economically.

the climate change hysteria

I have some Miami coast property to sell since climate change "doesn't exist". If Trump voters think this way they should buy up all the beach property since rising sea levels will never "happen" and they can enjoy safe investments for infinitum.

Sorry Trump people....Trump lost and he scammed you

Isn't it amazing that Trump supporters continue to defend Russia and China....over their own country...

Just like they defended a group of domestic terrorists on Jan 6th who share China and Russia's goals - to overthrow our democracy...

Is he wrong about climate change? Sea levels will never rise? Again put belief to action and invest in beach real estate? If not then it's just all talk. Call it the Trump Coastal Property fund. Based on sea level rises that will "never happen"

At the same time China and India as the worlds biggest polluters

Per capita the US is actually by far a bigger polluter than India or China. Even speaking only in volumes of CO2 only, the US ranks second in the top 3, so calling China and India the worlds biggest polluters is just a lie.

Is Biden truly sincere in his effort to curtail carbon emission is US?

His talk sounds fine yet with a tint of hollowness. Nevertheless, it would be empty when not accompanied by any real action..

Wait and see..

oh wow, that just slipped right through didnt it?

Unable to guarantee that a different president in 2024 won't undo Biden's climate work, the Biden administration....

Do we know anyone like this? someone who might remove the US from this nonsense climate agreement where everyone seems unwilling to participate unless US dollars get put in their hands first?

China, India and America are the top three polluters.
