    Much of President Joe Biden’s ambitions to save the planet comes down to a delicate dance: Can he cut a deal with the Brazilian leader whose allies are slashing and burning the Amazon? Biden may have little choice but to try — despite warnings from U.S. allies and activists inside and outside of Brazil that he cannot trust the “Trump of the tropics.” So Biden and his climate envoy, John Kerry, have dived headlong into talks with Brazilian President Jair…

    An audit of the National Audubon Society confirmed the findings of a POLITICO investigation that the environmental organization fostered a culture of harassment, intimidation and fear against women and people of color. The news: The report by law firm Morgan Lewis substantiated several claims, including that white men in the organization carried disproportionate influence over decisions, and recommended “changes to the structure and leadership of the organization.” The report, which Audubon’s board of directors made public Monday, comes just weeks…

    Congressional Democrats have finally gotten over their reluctance to repeal one of former President Donald Trump’s regulations — using a legislative tool that Republicans wielded more than a dozen times against Barack Obama’s rules four years ago. But that limited Democratic attack is a far cry from the aggressive shredding of Trump’s legacy that many expected the party’s lawmakers to launch after they seized control of the Senate in January, giving them an opportunity to unleash a torrent of Congressional…

    White House officials have said the ambitious target to reduce U.S. emissions of planet-heating gases by 50-52 percent by 2030 was built on a rigorous analysis that laid out the pathways to success. But nearly a week later, no one outside the administration seems to have seen it. Several Republican, Democratic and committee offices on Capitol Hill told POLITICO they had not been briefed by the Biden administration nor have they received any detailed explanation of how the White House…

    The Senate on Wednesday voted to reverse the Trump administration’s rollback of a crucial Obama-era climate regulation, delivering a bipartisan victory for President Joe Biden’s lofty goals of curbing heat-trapping greenhouse gases. The 52-42 vote, including three yeas from Republicans, would restore the Obama administration’s 2016 restrictions on the potent greenhouse gas methane. Democrats passed it using a legislative maneuver that allows them to get around the Senate’s filibuster rules — and had unusually robust support from many oil and…

    Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on Monday dismissed a myth spread by conservative media that President Joe Biden intends to stop Americans from eating burgers and steaks as part of his plans to combat climate change. “There is no effort designed to limit people’s intake of beef coming out of President Biden’s White House or USDA,” Vilsack said during a virtual briefing hosted by the North American Agricultural Journalists. “Sometimes in the political world, games get played and issues are injected…

    The United States brought the world’s most important leaders together in an attempt to restore its position as dealmaker and momentum-builder for one of the most vexing global problems. President Joe Biden learned along the way that getting other nations to go along with his ambitious plan to cut emissions between 50 and 52 percent below 2005 levels by 2030 will be monumentally difficult. Biden’s efforts yielded some progress in his virtual climate summit with the heads of 40 nations,…

    President Joe Biden’s ambitious climate pledges come down to one main question: How much greener can he make the U.S. power grid? The United States has made almost no progress in cutting greenhouse gas emissions from its other major carbon sources — vehicles, buildings, factories and farms. The U.S. reduced emissions by only 12 percent from 2005 through 2019, so it will have to more than triple its carbon-slashing pace to meet the target Biden announced Thursday: 50 to 52…

    Swedish climate advocate Greta Thunberg urged a House subcommittee on Thursday to end tax breaks for fossil fuel producers, saying their existence was a “disgrace,” and she accused lawmakers who have failed to remove them as “proof that we have not understood the climate emergency.” “How long do you honestly believe that people in power like you will get away with it? How long do you think you can continue to ignore the climate crisis, the global aspect of equity…

    President Joe Biden pledged Thursday to slash U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases in at least half by 2030 — an ambitious target that will require retooling the world’s largest economy in an effort to put the U.S. at the forefront of the international campaign to slow climate change. It’s a goal the White House insists the U.S. can meet even if Congress rejects Biden’s calls for trillions of dollars in green infrastructure spending. The new target embodies one of Biden’s…

    Jigar Shah was a green finance legend, the founder of the pioneering solar firm SunEdison and then the billion-dollar green infrastructure fund Generate Capital. He was overseeing Generate’s investments in more than 2,000 sustainable projects, while co-hosting the top-rated climate podcast on iTunes. He certainly wasn’t looking for a job, especially an obscure government job running a loan program that had basically stopped making loans. But Shah agreed to take over the Department of Energy’s long-dormant loan office, because he…

    President Joe Biden will step into the global climate spotlight on Thursday, aiming to portray the U.S. as ready to take the lead in the international campaign to curb the pollution that’s warming the planet, driving devastating storms and raising sea levels. The two-day Climate Leaders Summit represents the return of the U.S. to the climate diplomacy it abandoned under President Donald Trump, and Biden is eager to demonstrate his resolve by laying out an aggressive set of targets that…

    ExxonMobil says it can help turn President Joe Biden’s climate agenda into reality — if Washington will kick in tax breaks and other assistance for a $100 billion carbon-capture project near Houston. By 2030, the project’s initial phase would capture 50 million tons of carbon dioxide every year from the refineries and petrochemical plants that line the Houston Ship Channel — the heart of the city’s oil and gas industry — and store it underground, Chief Executive Darren Woods told…

    The United States and China agreed to work together to fight climate change “with the seriousness and urgency that it demands” and pledged to ratchet up efforts to combat rising temperatures, the two nations said in a joint statement. The new statement issued late Saturday showed the two nations continued to engage in efforts to rein in the greenhouse gases heating the planet even as the relationship between Washington and Beijing faces rising strains, as seen in the bitter exchanges…
