President Biden’s Earth Day Summit: What It Means For Massachusetts
Hosted by WBUR CitySpace
Climate change was a pillar of President Biden’s 2020 campaign. Since entering the White House, he has already rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement and signed a number of executive agreements to further tackle climate change at home and abroad. On Earth Day, President Biden will hold a Leaders’ Climate Summit with various world leaders led by John Kerry, special presidential envoy for climate, to outline emissions reductions, green energy investments and more.
How will these new commitments impact Massachusetts? Environmental reporter Miriam Wasser will moderate a panel of local climate experts and answer your questions.
