On Tuesday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., spoke at an event during COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, saying the U.S. is once again on the world stage as a leader in climate action.
ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: It's a thrill to be here. It's a thrill to be here with my colleagues elected in 2018 and to really present this message that America is back at COP and on the international stage as a leader in climate action and drawdown. One thing that I think is so exciting about this time is that, when we say that the United States is back, it's not just that we're back in the way that the United States was pursuing climate policy before. It is different. And I would argue that it's a fundamentally different approach.
