Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Biden Tells World Leaders ‘Time Is Now’ To Boost Climate Pledges” – below is their description.

President Joe Biden told world leaders “the time is now” to accelerate efforts to slash greenhouse gases amid concerns that commitments are lagging before a pivotal United Nations summit.

“We know there’s still a lot of work to do and if anything, our job, in my view, has grown more urgent,” Biden said Friday during a virtual meeting with nine other world leaders.

Biden said the leader-level forum was intended to be a sober assessment of global progress – or lack thereof – six weeks ahead of the UN gathering in Glasgow, which climate activists and government officials have described as a make-or-break moment to curb climate change.
