United States President Joe Biden’s Earth Day message is clear: America is back to lead the fight against climate change.
Biden is hoping to restore US credibility by hosting a virtual summit with 40 of the world’s biggest polluters.
He pledged to halve US emissions by 2030, and wants other nations to make steep cuts.
China is promising to be carbon-neutral by 2060, while Britain and the European Union also made big commitments.
But will the summit be all talk, and little action?
