Biden Vows Climate Action in Meeting with French President

Feb 5, 2013
(The Hill)

Vice President Joe Biden reaffirmed the Obama administration's goal of tackling climate

"I was impressed in the discussion we had relative to climate change — and I mean this sincerely, Mr. President — I could have been sitting in a private meeting with President Obama," Biden said in joint remarks with Francois Hollande following their meeting at the Elysee Palace.

Biden said Obama was "committed" to a "united effort" on behalf of "young people in both our countries" whose lives could be altered by global climate change.

"As I pointed out to the Foreign Minister [Laurent Fabius], he is going to have an interlocutor in John Kerry. There is no one in my country who has been, over the period of time he’s been in the Senate, more concerned with or knowledgeable about the issues relating to global warming."
