Trudeau Paris Agreement

by admin on December 18, 2020

The United States formally left the Paris climate agreement on November 4, nearly three years after President Donald Trump announced his withdrawal from the international agreement. President-elect Joe Biden has promised to return to office the day he takes office. The agreement will enter into force as soon as it is signed by 55 countries representing 55% of global emissions, a threshold it appears to have far exceeded on Friday. In signing the agreement, Mr. Trudeau also pledged to invest $2.65 billion over the next five years to help developing countries fight climate change. When Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement, he promised that by 2030, Canada would reduce its emissions by 30% from 2005 levels. Canada would also help developing countries fight climate change, and the government would develop a climate strategy with the provinces while considering a North American plan. The agreement, adopted in 2015 by 196 countries, provided that nations would commit to keeping their greenhouse gas emissions below a level that would keep global temperatures above 2 degrees Celsius and, ideally, no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. The Paris Agreement, which came into force in November 2016, was created to adapt to climate change, with the aim of reducing emissions.

According to Trump, who called global warming “mythical,” the agreement put the U.S. at a disadvantage from leaving American workers – whom I love – and taxpayers to absorb costs in the form of lost jobs, lower wages, closed factories and a sharp drop in economic output.” In his opening address to the UN ceremony on Friday, Trudeau said the Paris agreement would be presented to Parliament next month and officially ratified this year.

The signatories promise to reach 2100 net zero emissions from 2050. The Minister of the Environment told CBC News this week that she thought there would be a plan by the fall if Canada intended to ratify the Paris agreement. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signed the Paris Agreement on climate change this morning at a ceremony at the United Nations in New York and gave his word that Canada will use renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The United Nations says it will set a record for most countries that sign an international agreement in one day.
