Editorial: What’s Next for China After U.S. Pulls Out of Paris Accord?
U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement has upset the international community. Signed in 2015 by nearly 200 countries, the accord was a landmark move. It calls on countries to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in a bid to keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.
The European Union has rejected Trump’s offer to renegotiate the Paris climate deal and pledged instead to bypass Washington to work with U.S. business leaders and state governors to implement the historic accord’s commitments. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has also reaffirmed China’s commitment to cut carbon emissions and pursue a more-sustainable course of development.
