The Paris Climate Agreement

At the Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. The Paris Agreement is a bridge between today's policies and climate-neutrality before the end of the century. There has recently been outrage at President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the United States of America from the agreement. People of this country still believe that climate change is a problem, and in order to see success in the future of our planet, the nations needs to remain in the agreement. As much as the decision has been already made by the President, it will take approximately three years for the action to go into effect. Other spectators believe the decision will be short lived as the nation progresses and sees the importance of the agreement.
