When President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Agreement on June 1, there has occurred a lot criticism. The USA actually comes second in producing greenhouse gases, China being the first.
The President’s decision has made other governments to reaffirm their commitments on climate change. Countries like China and India are crucial for the success of the Paris Accords which aims to keep the increase in average world temperature well below 2 degree Celsius.
In fact, President Trump’s withdrawal has generated a global push, which is also evident in the USA itself. Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg is convinced that the nation will be able to reach the targets it set itself under the Paris Accords, says UN chief Antonio Guterres.
