Edward Parson in The Hill: Manchin set to make or break Biden’s climate pledge

President Biden’s pledge at COP26 climate summit to cut methane emissions by 30% over the next 9years could be derailed by Sen. Joe Manchin who won’t support anything that would penalize the oil & natural gas industries. “It’s super important for U.S. influence and credibility internationally and any aim for the U.S. to play anything like a leadership role,” says Edward Parson, the faculty director of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at UCLA.
