On April 22 and 23, U.S. President Joe Biden is bringing together leaders from 40 countries to “underscore the urgency – and the economic benefits – of stronger climate action.” A generous reading of the event is that the Biden Administration is following through on its campaign promise to actually address the climate crisis after the previous administration spent four years denying the crisis even exists. Those critical of the summit point out that it is merely an exercise in propaganda, designed to showcase the U.S.’ return to the multilateral stage and win accolades from the mainstream press around its latest carbon reduction targets.
Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung – New York Office will bring together renowned climate activists, journalists, and policy experts for a talk show to discuss the outcomes of the Biden Climate Summit and the US approach to addressing the climate crisis, from the perspective of the global north and the global south.
