Trump Dumps the Paris Agreement
Dato' Dr Gurdial Singh Nijar, Lead Spokesmen for Like Minded Developing Countries, Cop21 | Her Excellency Maria Castillo Fernandez, Ambassador & Head of Delegation, European Union Delegation to Malaysia
Even during the US Presidential Campaign, Donald Trump blasted the Paris Accord on Climate Change, saying it imposed wildly unfair environmental standards on American businesses and workers. He has lived up to his promise and pulled the US out of the landmark 2015 pact, and we first speak to Dr. Gurdial, who was a negotiator at Cop21 to find out what he thinks the impact of this decision will be, especially on developing nations. We also speak to H.E. Maria about the EU's response to take the lead in the fight to halt global warming.
