United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the United States was “still in” the fight against climate change, during a press conference on the sidelines of the 25th Annual Conference of Parties (COP25) in Madrid on Monday.
“We want to say to everyone we are still in. The United States is still in,” Pelosi said while being accompanied by a bipartisan Congressional delegation. “Congress’ commitment to take action on the climate crisis is iron-clad,” Pelosi added.
“Unfortunately we are having to fight our way through a bit of a blockade by the fossil fuel industry,” US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse said. “The statements from their lips do not match the expenditure of their funds, still dedicated to maintaining a significant political apparatus of denial and obstruction. But that will not prevail.”
The COP25 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be held from December 2-13 in Madrid under the Presidency of Chile with support from Spain.
