Following the election, Biden has pledged not only to do a reversal on Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, but to tackle climate change in other ways too.

Domestic carbon production is a concern and Biden is set to introduce targets that will see the USA's energy production be carbon free by 2035 and by 2050 for the country to achieve net zero emissions.

There are a range f strategies that he will implement to ensure he succeeds against these targets, such as upgrading current buildings to make them more energy efficient as well as investing heavily into public transport and electric vehicles.

Scientists have recognised that should these targets be met, that this will be a distinct tipping point in the fight against climate change.
