US, Canada to hold climate talks, paving road to Biden’s Earth Day summit
The U.S. and Canada will host a “high-level summit” on Wednesday about climate change, according to U.S. officials, who described it as the first diplomatic initiative for the Biden administration as it seeks to put the issue back at the top of the U.S. foreign policy agenda. “U.S. leadership has been sorely missed over the past years” on climate change, Trudeau said, adding it was “nice when the Americans are not pulling out all references to climate change and instead adding them” into their joint statements after their meetings. During Wednesday’s summit, co-hosted by Biden’s special envoy for climate John Kerry.
