Earlier in the day, US President Joe Biden announced that the US would halve its greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 as part of the country’s efforts to combat climate change.
Biden also urged world leaders to significantly accelerate their plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or risk a disastrous collective failure to stop catastrophic climate change.
Every year, on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement since 1970.
The struggle for a clean environment continues with increasing urgency, as the ravages of climate change become more and more evident every day.
