FAQs about COP24 Katowice 2018

12. Does the United States continue in the COPs and continues to support the Paris Agreement?

US participation in COP24 is because the United States cannot abandon that pact until the end of 2020, according to the regulations. Some media highlighted that the delegation of the northern country was very active and constructive. In SGK-PLANET we do not share this last statement if we consider that the United States rejected the Fifth Report of the IPCC, the basic document for the negotiations at COP24. While Donald Trump, the No. 1 denial of climate change caused by human activity, remains in the White House, it is hard to believe that the United States will accept the Paris Agreement when it enters into force in 2020.
