US President Joe Biden on Tuesday asked Congress to ratify an amendment to an international treaty aimed at sharply reducing hydrofluorocarbons, a gas that causes major damage to the climate.
The Democratic president called on the Senate to support the ratification of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, signed by 124 countries, which provides for the gradual phase-out of these compounds.
HFCs are used in refrigeration, air conditioning and in the manufacture of insulating foams, and are among the most greenhouse gases.
The United States played a large role in drafting the amendment calling for states to reduce these compounds by 85 percent by 2036 – a goal that has been deferred for several years to other countries.
