Biden Will Not Attend UN’s COP28 Climate Event In Dubai

President Joe Biden will not be present at the United Nations’ upcoming climate change summit, which is to be held in Dubai this week.

The conference, known as COP28, is set to commence on Thursday. It is believed that Biden’s involvement in the ongoing Middle East conflict and the intensifying presidential campaign that officially begins in January are major reasons.

King Charles III, Pope Francis and leaders from almost 200 nations are expected to attend the summit.

The White House announced the president’s agenda for Thursday, which includes a meeting with President João Manuel Lourenço of the Republic of Angola and participation in the National Tree Lighting event.

At the gathering in Dubai, many countries intend to advocate for the world’s initial agreement to gradually eliminate coal, oil, and gas that produce CO2 emissions since assuming office in 2021, Biden has participated in both COP summits.

He stopped in Egypt for a three-hour layover during the summit last year. During this time, he emphasized the passage of America’s most important climate legislation ever.

This law, known as the Inflation Reduction Act, will allocate a minimum of $370 billion toward clean energy development within the next decade.

At the summit last year, Biden assured the gathered leaders that this legislation would encourage other nations to shift away from fossil fuels.
