(The Center Square) - President Joe Biden hosted a virtual climate summit with dozens of world leaders Thursday, the same day the White House released a set of aggressive climate goals. Critics say the plan could jeopardize the economy at a time it is recovering from record-breaking unemployment because of the pandemic and governments' response to it.

First among those priorities is a pledge to cut U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in half by the year 2030.
