Need to Sustain Paris Pact after US Exit

 The United States initiated the process of leaving the Paris Agreement, notifying the United Nations, on November 04, of its withdrawal from the landmark climate deal. Under the current rules of the Paris Agreement, the earliest date that the US would be able to exit the accord would be 5 November 2020, which comes, incidentally, a day after the 2020 US presidential election. Once the United States exits the 2015 Paris Agreement, it will become the only country in the world that has refused to become a signatory. Syria and Nicaragua, the last remaining countries who were earlier holding out, also became signatories in 2017.
