Republican lawmakers are requesting information on carbon emissions used to transport government officials to the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

In a letter to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Tuesday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), along with two others, said Joe Biden and 13 members of his cabinet used jets to travel to the Glasgow climate summit. The lawmakers said Democrat officials also used extensive motorcades to travel around the town while visiting.
