Fortunately, more than 4,000 U.S. heads of state and government have stood up in cities, states, tribes, businesses, colleges and universities to say they will continue to support climate change measures to meet the commitments made by the Paris Agreement as part of the We Are Still In movement. These leaders have crossed cultural, political, economic and social divides to meet the challenge of the climate crisis. These leaders in the United States could achieve a 37% reduction in emissions below 2005 levels by 2030, with a significant increase in measures by 2030 and a 49% reduction in emissions from 2005 levels, with federal reintegration beginning aggressively from 2021. With the support of WWF and more than two dozen other organizations, We Are Still In has been welcomed by other countries and praised by Americans who want to show the world that U.S. leaders far exceed the federal government`s executive on climate change. A „national communication“ is a kind of report presented by countries that have ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). [85] Developed countries are required to submit national submissions every four years and developing countries should do so. [86] [87] [88] Some least developed countries have not submitted national communications in the past 5-15 years,[89] mainly due to capacity constraints. The Paris Agreement is the world`s first comprehensive climate agreement. [15] Taking part in an election campaign promise, Trump – a climate denier who claimed climate change was a „hoax“ committed by China – announced in June 2017 his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. But despite the rose garden president`s statement that „we`re going out,“ it`s not that simple.

The withdrawal procedure requires that the agreement be in effect for three years before a country can formally announce its intention to withdraw. She`ll have to wait a year before she leaves the pact. This means that the United States could formally withdraw on November 4, 2020, the day after the presidential elections. Even a formal withdrawal would not necessarily be permanent, experts say. a future president could join us in a month. Currently, 197 countries – every nation on earth, the last signatory is war-torn Syria – have adopted the Paris Agreement. 179 of them have consolidated their climate proposals with official approval, including, for the time being, the United States.
