At the white house, Mr. Joe Biden said, “This is the decade we must make decisions that will avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis.” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called the new U.S. climate goal “game changing” as two other countries have also made new pledges to climate goals. PM of Japan Mr.Yoshihide Suga has raised Japan’s target for cutting emissions to 46% by 2030, up from 26% after the visit of white house and meeting with Mr.Biden, President of the USA. Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro announced his most ambitious environmental goal yet, saying the country would reach emissions neutrality by 2050, 10 years earlier than the previous goal. Chinese President Xi Jinping said that China expecting its carbon emissions would peak before 2030 and it will achieve net-zero emissions by 2060. Most of the countries do not offer new emissions goals.
