Israel’s energy minister cheers Biden’s return to Paris climate deal

Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz applauds US President Joe Biden for reentering the Paris climate accords as one of his first acts in office.

“The fight against climate change requires us all to not make populist statements, but rather reach our targets on the ground,” tweets Steinitz, hailing Israel for meeting its targets on power plants and energy in the past five years that it committed to under the international deal.
