The climate agreement, which came into force on 4 November 2016, obliged countries that signed the measure to take certain voluntary measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The agreement was not legally applicable and countries set their own emissions targets. The agreement prohibits countries from announcing their intention to withdraw within the first three years, meaning that Monday was the first day the United States was allowed to file its intention to leave the agreement since it came into force in 2016. This is because China is the biggest climate problem on planet Earth. The rise of China, made possible by Western money and trade, has created a climate monster. Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party makes only formal statements on climate policy. The fact is that we do not yet need to see China meet contractual and international obligations. At the Communist Party meeting in October, Chinese President Xi Jinping promised to make China carbon neutral by 2060. That`s 10 years later than other nations. The former president stepped into Thursday`s news. On Wednesday 21 October 2020, a makeshift globe burns in front of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt.

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to sign an executive order that, on January 20, the day of his inauguration, will bring the United States back to the Paris climate accords, an international agreement of nearly 200 countries on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing global warming. Trump had previously said that the Paris climate agreement hurt the U.S. economy and would hurt U.S. jobs if it stopped. The Green New Deal`s climate policy uses our natural love for rivers, forests, plains and seas. While the United States is held responsible for climate problems, many of the measures initiated by Von Biden will serve as a pretext for direct benefits for energy companies.
