President Biden left for Europe today to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow next week.

But it’s significantly less ambitious than his original climate proposal, and even this stripped-down version might not survive.
What remains in the plan as it stands now, and what’s expected at the Glasgow summit?
