As of November 2020, 194 states and the European Union had signed the agreement. 187 states and the EU, which accounts for about 79% of global greenhouse gas emissions, have ratified or acceded to the agreement, including China and India, the countries with the 1st and 3rd largest CO2 emissions among UNFCCC members.    As of November 2020, the United States, Iran and Turkey are the only non-contracting countries with a share of more than 1% of global emissions. The agreement contains commitments from all countries to reduce their emissions and work together to adapt to the effects of climate change and calls on countries to step up their commitments over time. The agreement provides a way for developed countries to assist developing countries in their mitigation and adaptation efforts, while providing a framework for transparent monitoring and reporting on countries` climate goals. While the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America – which it does, and the mines are starting to open. We have a big opening in two weeks. Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A large opening of a brand new mine. This is outrageous. This has not happened for many, many years.
They asked me if I was going to leave. I will try. Article 28 of the Agreement allows the Parties to withdraw from the Contract after sending a notice of withdrawal to the Depositary. The denunciation may take place no earlier than three years after the entry into force of the Agreement for the country. The revocation shall take effect one year after notification by the depositary. Alternatively, the agreement stipulates that withdrawal from the UNFCCC, under which the Paris Agreement was adopted, would also remove the state from the Paris Agreement. The conditions for withdrawal from the UNFCCC are the same as for the Paris Agreement. The agreement does not contain any provisions in case of non-compliance. Warmer temperatures – both on land and at sea – are changing global weather patterns and changing how and where precipitation falls. These changing patterns exacerbate dangerous and deadly droughts, heat waves, floods, wildfires and storms, including hurricanes.
They also melt ice caps, glaciers, and permafrost layers, which can lead to sea level rise and coastal erosion. Warmer temperatures also affect entire ecosystems, unbalancing migration patterns and life cycles. For example, an early spring can make trees and plants bloom before bees and other pollinators appear. While global warming equates to longer growing seasons and higher food production in some regions, areas already facing water scarcity are expected to become drier, creating a risk of drought, crop failures or forest fires. .
