U.S. President Joe Biden convened leaders of the world’s most powerful countries on Thursday to try to spur global efforts against climate change, drawing commitments from Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and others.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was among those to join the virtual summit. Canada has yet to meet previous climate targets, but on Thursday pledged to meet targets that are even more ambitious. As David Akin reports, there is skepticism the government can get it done.

U.S. President Joe Biden, meanwhile, has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in his country by up to 52 per cent by the end of the decade. The other big emitters, China and India, did not commit to new targets. But as Jackson Proskow reports, their hands may be forced by the economic realities of climate change and an emerging demand for green products.
