As gas prices rise, Biden hosts a climate meeting
The president will convene a virtual meeting of some of the world's biggest economies on Friday, after recently focusing on boosting oil production to reduce rising gas prices.
The United Kingdom, Germany, China, Saudi Arabia, and the European Union will be among the participants. The United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, and Egypt, which is hosting the next environment conference, will also be present.
Biden will use the opportunity to prod his counterparts to adopt additional efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, according to senior administration officials, who were not authorized to comment publicly before the event.
