Joe Biden is pushing his agenda on so-called climate change as he reentered the controversial Paris climate accords. On Friday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the move, saying the Biden administration remains committed to prioritizing environmental issues.

Several Republican lawmakers, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), decried the move, accusing Biden of neglecting Americans who work in the energy sector.

This is the latest reversal of policies enforced during the Trump administration, after President Trump withdrew from the 2015 agreement last year.

“It is a process that takes 30 days, that means as of today, we are officially back in again,” John Kerry, presidential envoy for climate said. “But in rejoining, we’ve got to be really honest with each other. We have to be humble and most of all we have to be ambitious. We have to be honest that as a global community, we’re not close to where we need to be.”

Blinken and Kerry said so-called climate change will be integral to America’s foreign policy.
