But one day, a senior vice president noticed my regular late hours and said, “Why are you staying late so often?

But now I can figure it out that it was because of me, I couldn’t balance my priorities with the number of hours I had to work.

Combating Climate Change Isn’t Just Biden’s Problem. How Small Businesses Can Step Up

As he promised, President Joe Biden is taking steps to have the United States reenter the Paris Climate Agreement on Day 1 of his presidency.

Due to the legal time frame for withdrawal from the agreement, in which 196 countries pledged to limit global warming to no more than two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the U.S. had actually not withdrawn until this past November. But the act of reentry is the first step in an expected aggressive set of policies to begin recovering lost time for the U.S., which is responsible for about 15 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions.
