Nearly 200 members of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) have signed the Paris Agreement – among them also the United States. In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and response to global warming and climate change, was entering into force on 4 November 2016.
Bringing together key players is important as McKenna said in an interview. However, without the possible key player called USA. In accordance with Bloomberg, this inter-continental alliance is a further signal that Trump and the USA become isolated from other countries.
“We are often asked about our position when looking at the U.S. uncertainty,” Xie said. “The Paris agreement is a hard-won achievement, and all signatories should stick to it instead of walking away. China will stick to its word.” Donald Trump often announced to cancel the Paris Agreement if elected for presidency during the November elections 2016.
