It Is everyone against the United States of America.
When Donald Trump announced that he plans to pull out of their Paris climate agreement, the assumption was that the US would follow Syria and Nicaragua as the sole non-signatories of the accord. Another holdout had explanations: Nicaragua thought the arrangement wasn't ambitious enough and Syria was in the middle of a war.
Now, both countries have experienced a change of heart.
At the climate talks in Bonn, Germany now (Nov. 7), the Syrian government announced that it would signal the Paris climate agreement after all, according to Climate Tracker. Last month, Nicaragua also signed up. That leaves the US as the country opting to not be part of the global consensus on climate actions.
The Paris climate agreement places out an end to stop global temperatures from increasing more than 2°C above pre-industrial amounts, a threshold above. This requires the entire world to reach zero greenhouse-gas emissions by roughly 2050.
The climate accord lets every nation determine its strategy of action. As present obligations though re-engage the US in climate action and Trump was to alter his thoughts, the decrease in global emissions would still warm the planet. In Bonn, nations want to figure out ways to work together to ensure we don't cross that threshold.
