Emissions will be 4% higher this year than in 2015, when the Paris Agreement was signed. Governments are meeting this week in Madrid and next week to work out some of the final details of the implementation of the Paris Agreement and begin work on new commitments to reduce emissions by 2030. However, the new report shows the increasing difficulty of this task. Trump has in turn ignored or denied the climate crisis. Its agencies adopt rules for power plants and cars and strengthen fossil fuels whenever possible. He promised, to widespread dismay, to leave the Paris agreement during his election campaign. From massive tree plantations in Buenos Aires to new public transit systems in Mexico City, 54 cities among the world`s largest cities are implementing plans to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in accordance with the Paris agreement, according to a new study of the C40 urban network. The United States will hold a climate summit for the world`s major economies early next year, within 100 days of Joe Biden`s appointment, and will attempt to re-establish the Paris Agreement on the first day of his presidency to boost the international fight against climate change. Extending short-term commitments in the Paris Agreement will be crucial. In addition to the global and legally binding limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius or 2 degrees Celsius, the Paris governments have presented non-binding national plans to reduce their emissions or control the expected increase in emissions for small developing countries. However, the first round of these national plans – so-called national contributions – in 2015 was insufficient and would lead to catastrophic warming of 3oC. In the Paris Agreement, the United States agreed to reduce its thermal dissipation load by at least 26% from 2005 levels by 2025.

Niklas Hohne of the NewClimate Institute, one of the partner organizations behind Climate Action Tracker, said: “Five years later, it is clear that the Paris Agreement is advancing the fight against climate change. We are now seeing a wave of countries registering [to achieve zero emissions]. Can anyone really afford to miss this wave? Countries and companies are still not committed to reducing their emissions, and this year the United States will conclude its withdrawal from the 2015 paris pioneering agreement. In a crucial year for international climate talks, the Un is calling on youth activists to discuss ideas and solutions for climate recovery. Emissions have increased much lower than in the past two years, but the continued increase means that the world is still a long way from meeting the paris climate change agreement, which would require emissions to peak and quickly fall to net zero by the middle of the century. The Trump administration launched the withdrawal with a letter to the United Nations, and in time, the United States will withdraw the day after the election and join Iran and Turkey as the only major countries that do not participate in the agreement. As the atmosphere soared through the lobby, UN security forces evacuated the platform and senior officials from the Paris climate talks entered the podium. For two weeks, 196 countries locked themselves in countless meetings, fought for dense pages of text, and examined each semicolon. And they finally agreed. Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister in charge of the exhausting talks, looked exhausted but delighted, took his clothes and knocked him down with a resounding breach. The Paris agreement was finally adopted. Mohamed Adow, director of the climate and energy think tank Power Shift Africa, said: “New, improved national climate promises would be an appropriate fifth anniversary gift for the Paris Agreement and a sign to vulnerable people around the world that heads of state and government are listening and acting to deal with the climate crisis…

More and more countries are setting up net data on zero emissions.
