United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25)

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres speaks during a news conference at the COP25 summit in Madrid Spain Sunday Dec. 1 2019. This year’s internat

Therefore, COP25 is of great importance to implement the Paris Agreement.

The US will take action on greenhouse gases and engage with other countries on the climate emergency despite Donald Trump's rejection of global cooperation, a delegation from the US Congress has told the United Nations climate conference in Madrid. "We now must deliver deeper cuts in emissions".

"We have a common challenge but with differentiated needs and urgencies, which we can only overcome if we work together", said Ms Schmidt as her country took over the chairing of the meeting from Poland.

Attendees sit next to a security control access at the COP25 climate talks summit in Madrid, Monday Dec. 2, 2019. The United States was one of over 190 countries to pledge support for the Paris Agreement in 2015, under the Obama administration, but the Trump administration is in the process of formally exiting the agreement due to economic concerns.

"It would take a radical transformation, but it starts on the streets, it starts here", the 22-year-old said.

Ahead of the COP25 meeting, a coalition of 35 African countries met at Morocco's Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Benguerir, north of Marrakech, to discuss "smart climate" and sustainable agriculture. "We see already strong commitment from many governments and the business and financial community - the problem is that the most important polluters, the countries that have the biggest [emissions of] greenhouse gases are lagging behind".

As well as demanding that the negotiators increase their level of carbon cutting ambition at this meeting, Mr Guterres announced that the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney will take on the role of UN Special Envoy on climate action and climate finance.

China suspends US Navy visits to Hong Kong over support for protests
China is also taking other steps to retaliate against what it sees as US support for Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam has said she'll accelerate dialogue but hasn't offered any concessions since the elections.

Ahead of the meeting the United Nations secretary general has warned that the world is at the point of no return.

"But we also see clearly that the world's largest emitters are not pulling their weight". "I'm hopeful, but not yet entirely sure as there is still a long way to go and we are still lagging behind".

This means they would balance out greenhouse emissions, for instance through carbon capture technology or by planting trees.

What should we expect from Cop 25?

Of course, Pelosi, by saying, "we are still in it", is not specifically referencing the United States' forgone involvement in the Paris climate agreement, but rather Congress' involvement in climate change initiatives, in general.

"President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by USA pledges made under the Agreement", the statement said.

Pelosi said her decision to visit Madrid during impeachment proceedings showed Democrats were committed to tackling the "existential threat to humanity" from the climate crisis. "None of this is inconsistent - we need to dispel the notion that we are not incorporating the green new deal", he said.
