Emmanuel Macron is the latest world leader to comment on Joe Biden’s election victory over Donald Trump.
The French President joined many other leaders in welcoming Biden’s victory as a boost to global cooperation in tackling climate change.
Trump was famously against climate change action, but the US’s approach to climate change will change drastically under Biden.
Macron said on Thursday during an online summit, according to Reuters:
“It is proof that we had to stand firm against all the headwinds,”
“’Make our planet great again’ is a possibility, not just in words but also in deed.”
Biden has already pledged a $2 trillion plan to boost US investment in clean energy.
