The simple things that are already starting to change when it comes to climate change.
I have to say there is a lot of hope in the beginnings of a new administration and one of them is the US rejoining the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
ACCEPTANCE ON BEHALF OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
I, Joseph R. Biden Jr., President of the United States of America, having seen and considered the Paris Agreement, done at Paris on December 12, 2015, do hereby accept the said Agreement and every article and clause thereof on behalf of the United States of America.
Done at Washington this 20th day of January 2021.
JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.
If you are not familiar “The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It was adopted by 196 Countries at COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015 and entered into force on 4 November 2016.
Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels.
To achieve this long-term temperature goal, countries aim to reach global peaking of greenhouse gas emissions as soon as possible to achieve a climate-neutral world by mid-century.
The Paris Agreement is a landmark in the multilateral climate change process because, for the first time, a binding agreement brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects.” – United Nations Climate Change
We, Amanda and I, truly hope that this small step in rejoining the world is symbolic of the new administrations’ commitment to protecting the world we love to travel so much.
