In a single paragraph Joe Biden returns US to Paris Agreement ahead of COP26

And there it was. In just 495 characters President Joe Biden signed the US back up to the Paris Agreement climate accord.

I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, having seen and considered the Paris Agreement, done at Paris on December 12, 2015, do hereby accept the said Agreement and every article and clause thereof on behalf of the United States of America.

Done at Washington this 20th day of January, 2021.

JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
