US President criticises China and Russia

The US President has taken a swipe at China and Russia for not having their leaders at the Cop26 climate summit.

Joe Biden says it was a mistake and they’ve lost influence.

World leaders have been leaving the summit in Scotland, with delegations left to continue talks.

Meanwhile, 450 private firms – which hold 40% of the world’s money – are joining a pledge to limit global warming.

US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, John Kerry, says their help’s badly needed.

“$100bn doesn’t do it folks,

“It’s trillions of dollars that are needed.

“The only way that we will get this done is if trillions of dollars are forthcoming – and they are.

“There will be tens of trillions of dollars announced.”
