United States alone outside of Paris climate accord as Syria joins

  • The Paris climate summit reached an agreement

Meyer said businesses, mayors, cities and other groups were also stepping up actions to limit a rise in temperatures that scientists say are stoking more downpours, heat waves and rising sea levels.

"Canada Salutes Nicaragua and Syria for joining on to the Paris Agreement!" the original tweet said on Tuesday.

Syria announced plans to sign the Paris climate accord on November 7, according to The New York Times.

It's because Trump hasn't signed on to the Paris Accord, and won't.

According to Trump, the Paris accord would have cost the United States 6.5mil jobs and US$3tn GDP in lost, whilst conveying that the accord favours economy rivals in China and India.

While the Obama administration initially signed on to the agreement in December 2015, President Trump voiced plans to leave it this June, claiming that switching over to clean energy will hurt the US economy.

Tallahassee, Florida police said Pi Kappa Phi pledge Andrew Coffey, 20, died at an off-campus chapter party on Friday, Nov. 3. In a separate and unrelated case, fraternity member, Garret Marcy of Phi Delta Theta was charged with selling drugs.

Trump's decision was met with praise from Republican lawmakers and criticism from world leaders.

On June 2, former Secretary of State John Kerry of the Obama administration called the USA withdraw from the Paris agreement "one of the most cynical and frankly ignorant and risky, self-destructive steps that I've seen in my entire lifetime in public life".

However, governors, mayors and business leaders from the US will set one up there later this week.

On Oct. 23, Nicaragua announced it would join the Paris accord, despite its previous reservations.

The news about Syria came during the second day of the United Nations' Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany. "Syria has not been invited", the ministry said in a terse statement. Many delegates said they hoped Trump would reconsider. The other big feature on McKenna's personal Twitter account is never-ending happy stories about renewable energy and government programs to address climate change, so much so that you would never know the government she represents claims the world faces an imminent, existential threat from global warming in which hundreds of millions of people will soon die. "For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of observational evidence".
