(a) to keep the global average temperature increase well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to continue efforts to limit the increase in temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, the potential to significantly reduce the risks and effects of climate change; While strengthening CNN`s ambitions is an important objective of the global inventory, efforts beyond mitigation are evaluated. The five-year revisions will also assess adaptation, climate change provisions, and technology development and transfer.  President Trump is pulling us out of the Paris Climate Agreement. It is rare that there is a consensus among almost all nations on a single subject. But with the Paris agreement, world leaders agreed that climate change was driven by human behaviour, that it was a threat to the environment and to humanity as a whole, and that global action was needed to stop it. In addition, a clear framework has been put in place for all countries to make commitments to reduce emissions and strengthen these measures over time. Here are some major reasons why this agreement is so important: China and India are now, along with the United States, among the world`s largest annual emitters. Developed countries have argued that these countries must now do more to address climate change. The United Nations has released a new emissions report that indicates that even if all current climate plans are implemented, temperatures are expected to rise by 3.2 degrees Celsius, which will have even greater and destructive climate effects. Collective ambitions must more than quintuple from current levels to achieve the reductions needed for the 1.5oC target over the next ten years. Now more than ever, it is time for world leaders to act on the climate crisis. At COP25, WWF will work with U.S. leaders to address the climate crisis to show that the United States will play its part.
WWF will host them at the United States Climate Action Center and provide an important venue to showcase their leadership, innovation and cooperation. There are also serious legal and constitutional issues. Foreign leaders in Europe, Asia and around the world should have no more to say about the U.S. economy than our own citizens and their elected representatives. That is why our withdrawal from the agreement is a reaffirmation of American sovereignty.
