US President Joe Biden has arrived in Rome early Friday for the upcoming G20 and then to attend Scotland for a UN climate summit where more than 200 delegates from different countries will discuss an agreement on how to deal with the horrendous 1.5 C of global warming.

Biden is expected to bring fresh ideas into tackling global warming, the spread of pandemic, and accelerating economic growth.

The President is responsible to reach success in future talks amid criticism from climate activists towards him that his actions are not corresponding to his words regarding the climate agenda.

The participant countries are interested to see the different US that passed Trump’s era during which the country in June 2017 left the Paris Agreement aimed at climate mitigation, especially when former American President Trump expressed disregard towards the climate issue saying it would “undermine” the US economy and harm the country in general.

The UK will host the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow which will begin on October 31 and will be lasting until November 12, 2021.

Earlier, media reported that the British Queen Elizabeth II won’t participate in the COP 26 summit and Russia’s President Putin will not attend the conference in person, but he will be presenting there via an online connection. China's Xi Jinping is going to participate in the G20 leaders' summit via video link.
