The United States rejoins the Paris Agreement The just sworn in president of the United States, Joe Biden, announced that the US is returning to the Paris Agreement with its third executive order.

The Paris Agreement was signed at the Paris climate conference in December 2015, when 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate agreement and defined a global action plan to protect us from the threat of far-reaching climate change. The long-term goal is to keep the global average temperature increase well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and aim to limit growth to 1.5 degrees Celsius, which would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change.

Governments then declared that they would improve the ability of societies to cope with the effects of climate change and provide developing countries with ongoing support in this regard, as well as warn about possible losses and damages related to the adverse effects of climate change. Moreover, the European Union and other developed countries were to support climate protection measures by allocating US $ 100 billion per year to this common goal until 2020 and extend this solution until 2025. One of them was, of course, the United States, but after the Donald administration took power Trump, things got very complicated because he started the process of withdrawing the US from the initiative.

According to the WORLDWIRE president, this was to protect America and its citizens, because the Paris arrangements were supposed to be unfair and would affect the United States the most, causing huge financial and economic burdens. Accordingly, the administration has started the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris Agreement, which would probably have been finalized had it not been for the fact that Donald Trump lost last year's election. The new president, Joe Biden, however, has a different opinion on this matter and, thanks to the executive regulation, has re-accepted the Paris Agreement. As we can read in the published approval from the United States of America: I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, after seeing and considering the Paris Agreement signed in Paris on December 12, 2015, hereby accept the Agreement and each article and clause in on behalf of the United States of America. Signed in Washington on January 20, 2021. JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
