The Trump administration officially begins the U.S. exit from the Paris climate agreement A drastic reduction in travel and economic activity around the world for several months of 2020, in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, is expected to reduce global energy-related CO2 emissions by only 7 percent compared to the previous year. As emissions rise, temperatures also rise. In 2020, despite La Nina`s cooling effect, it will be 1.2 degrees Celsius warmer than pre-industrial times and will be the warmest period since records began. The results will be presented on Friday to Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris, at an event in the French capital to mark the fifth anniversary of the climate agreement. Trump`s challenger, Joe Biden, would immediately join the deal and push lawmakers to spend a lot of money on green infrastructure to try to reverse the economic slowdown in the pandemic. In 2020, when the pandemic led to closures and restrictions on freedom of movement, emissions fell to a record 7%, as the UN announced this week.

Donald Trump has withdrawn the United States since Wednesday from the Paris climate accord, an international pact to avoid dangerous temperature hikes that are already causing more extreme weather conditions and threatening to cut the world`s food supply, forcing millions to flee their homes and depriving them of many basic human rights. The Trump administration triggered the U.S.
exit a year ago, but it didn`t take effect until November 4. The C40 report predicts that city plans, combined, will prevent the release of at least 1.9 gigatonnes of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere between 2020 and 2030, five times the UK`s annual emissions.
