President Biden Attends Climate Summit

Describes climate change as an “existential threat to human existence as we know it.”

President Joe Biden spoke before the United Nation’s climate summit, officially the Conference of the Parties (COP26), on Monday in Glasgow, Scotland. Leaders of over 100 countries gathered together to discuss a worldwide effort to address climate change. The summit aims to persuade each nation’s leadership to take active steps to reduce carbon emissions and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

President Biden stressed the need for global cooperation to address the effects of climate change, saying, “Climate change is already ravaging the world. We are standing at an inflection point in world history.” He went on to call climate change an “existential threat to human existence as we know it.” The president stated that the time for action is now as any further delay could make full recovery impossible. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president to seek God’s direction in addressing climate change.
  • For discernment for officials in the State Department as they work with other nations to address worldwide problems.
  • For God’s purposes to be accomplished in both the United States and the world.
