Au Revoir Paris Agreement
US withdrawal from the global climate
accord and its implications
On November 04, the very next day after the US presidential election 2020, the United States became the first nation in the world to formally withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. Since the agreement was signed in December 2015, it came into force on 4 November 2016, 30 days after at least 55 countries representing 55% of global emissions had ratified it. No country could give notice to leave the agreement until three years had passed from the date of ratification. Even then, a member state still had to serve a 12-month notice of its intention to withdraw. So, despite President Trump’s White House announcement in June 2017, the US was only able to formally give notice to the UN in November last year. The time has elapsed and the US is now out. The US could re-join it in future, should a president choose to do so.
