Miami, Jan 24- A letter signed by 153 world leaders and published this Sunday in the New York Times encourages Democrat Joe Biden, who took office last Wednesday as the new tenant of the White House, to become the “climate president” exercising his “bold leadership” amid the current environmental urgency.

“It can transform the world’s energy systems from fossil fuels to clean energy, while creating an abundance of jobs, reducing pollution, and addressing economic, racial and health inequalities in the process,” they wrote.
The signatories are public officials, business executives, activists of environmental organizations and other public figures.
Among them are the president of the European Parliament’s Committee on the Environment, Health and Food Safety, Pascal Canfin, the Spanish deputies Javier López Fernández and Italian Sandro Gozi, the Defense Minister of the Republic of North Macedonia, Radmila Shekerinska Jankovska, and president of the Paris Peace Forum, Pascal Lamy.
“He can be remembered as the ‘climate president’ who saved humanity when he was on the brink of the cliff,” they note in a full-page ad in the New York newspaper.
Other signatories are Felipe Benítez, director of Corazón Latino, Isaías Hernández, creator of QueerBrownVegan, Mark Magaña, president of GreenLatinos, and Alexandria Villaseñor, founder of Earth Uprising.
The letter comes after Biden took a series of actions on his first day in office, including rejoining the Paris climate accord, aimed at restoring American climate leadership and advancing the country’s transition to a clean energy economy.
“Choosing to take on bold leadership will allow us to better rebuild and move into a new world that we can create together,” say the leaders.
Biden reversed the decision of former Republican President Donald Trump to remove the United States, the second most polluting country on the planet, from the Paris Agreement against climate change, which became effective last November.
The signatories of the letter celebrate that by rejoining the Paris Agreement from day one, the Democrat “has moved the United States in the right direction. But, as he has said, it is simply not enough and we must do all that we can.”
The signatories also include former leaders from Kenya and Chile, as well as officials and former officials from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Antigua and Barbuda, Brazil, Chile, the Netherlands, Italy, North Macedonia and Spain.
