The United States is the second-largest country in the world, after China, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, and Trump’s rival in the race, Joe Biden, had previously expressed support for the Paris Agreement.
The agreement aims to limit global warming to just two degrees on the Richter scale, and signatory countries pledge to make efforts to bring this rate down below the 1.5-point threshold.
The objectives of the agreement are reviewed every five years.
