At Earth Day Climate Summit, Biden Pushes for Sharp Cut to Greenhouse-Gas Emissions

Timothy Puko and Andrew Restuccia report on The Wall Street Journal that President Biden has called for sharp emissions reductions targets.

  • Since 2000, the United States has reduced our energy emissions faster than any other country due to market forces and the fracking revolution.
