US President Joe Biden delivered his speech today at the United Nations Assembly, warning world leaders about a series of threats that threaten humanity, from wars to artificial intelligence and climate change.

Biden said that Artificial Intelligence is a tool that should be used for good, and not turned "into a weapon of subjugation".

Listing a series of natural disasters such as massive fires and floods in various states, Biden said climate change is an "existential threat."

"From day one of my administration, the United States has treated this crisis as the existential threat it is, not just to us, but to all of humanity," Biden declared.

US President Biden moved his speech to the invasion of Ukraine, calling on leaders at the UN to stand against Russian aggression.

He said that the US and allies will support Ukraine, and Russia's brutalization of Ukraine "will not go without consequences."

"Russia believes the world will tire and allow it to brutalize Ukraine without consequence. But I ask you this: if we abandon the core principles of the UN Charter to appease an aggressor, can any member state feel confident that it is protected? If we allow Ukraine to be carved up, is the independence of any nation safe?", declared Biden.

As for artificial intelligence, climate change and Ukraine, Biden said the US is seeking to "responsibly manage" its relationship with China.

"When it comes to China, I want to be clear and consistent. We seek to responsibly manage the competition between our countries so that it does not turn into conflict," Biden said.
