President Joe Biden is convening the second meeting of Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate today. The president intends to build on his Leaders Summit on Climate in April and strategize for global efforts in the coming decade. This forum comes six weeks before the United Nations Climate Change Conference which will be held in Glasgow.

White House Press Secretary Psaki stated ahead of today’s forum, “The latest findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released last month and an accelerating cycle of climate-driven disasters around the world have underscored the urgency of dramatically scaling up action this decade to keep the 1.5-degree goal within reach.”
She continued, “At the MEF meeting, the President will emphasize both the urgency and the economic benefits of stronger climate action. He will call on leaders to strengthen their climate ambition heading into COP 26 and in the years beyond. The President also will outline plans to leverage the MEF post-Glasgow as a launchpad for collective, concrete efforts scaling up climate action through this decisive decade.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and other members of the forum today as they explore ways to address the environment.
  • For the president and his administration to seek God’s wisdom as they proposed solutions for the global climate.
  • For God to be magnified in the stewardship of the earth.
