AASHE alongside numerous environmental and social justice organizations, has signed a letter to President Joe Biden, demanding robust U.S. leadership at the upcoming COP28 summit. The letter criticizes the U.S. for inadequate action relative to its historical emissions and calls for ambitious commitments, including: a 70% reduction in emissions from 2005 levels by 2030, cessation of new fossil fuel infrastructure, and enhanced support for global climate finance and adaptation efforts. The letter frames COP28 as a pivotal opportunity for the U.S. to realign its climate policy with its economic influence and historical emissions footprint, pressing President Biden to lead a transformative climate agenda that matches the urgency of the global crisis.
