Biden goes to Glasgow with uncertainty about domestic climate agenda

President Biden wants to change the world’s view of U.S. leadership on climate at this week’s COP26 summit in Glasgow, but uncertainties linger whether he can credibly claim a leading role on the issue.

Biden is expected to tout the U.S.’s climate progress and how the nation is returning to global climate negotiations after former President Trump pulled out of the Paris Agreement.

But a major climate program was recently stripped from Biden’s “Build Back Better” legislative agenda amid opposition from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), and the fate of another is up in the air.
