The United States tells the UN that it is saying goodbye to the Paris climate agreement
WASHINGTON: The United States has told the United Nations The process of withdrawing from the 2015 milestone has begun Paris climate agreement
Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said Monday that he submitted a formal notice to the United Nations . That starts a withdrawal process that does not become official for one year.
Pompeo's statement touted America's carbon pollution cuts and called the Paris deal an "unfair economic burden'' to the US economy.
Casi 200 naciones firmaron el climate agreement en el que cada país proporciona sus propios objetivos para frenar las emisiones de gases que atrapan el calor que conducen.
The United States is the first nation to withdraw from the agreement. The rules of the agreement prevented a country from withdrawing in the first three years after the ratification of November 4, 2016.
