emissions would be decisive as follows the trope administration's move to start the formal process of withdrawing the us from the 2015 accord but she and the call have said the court is irreversible. quickly delicious milk over the past 2 years in the fight against climate change we have consistently acted together with great effectiveness and commitment to the i regret the choices made by a few other countries but i want to see them as marginal choices. when china the european union and russia ratify the paris agreement and make a firm commitment to the isolated choice made by one or another country won't change the course of the world as. well as talk this through now i'm joined here in the studio by our environment reporter tim schoenberg could see attempts well the french president and the chinese president they've both reaffirmed their commitment to the paris climate accord they say it's irreversible now what does that mean well
10:03 am
let me explain a bit china is the larget largest what's not just a matter of c o 2 emissions relying on coal as their prime energy source they've just agreed so far on not emitting more c o 2 from 2030 on so furthermore china is not a full member of the paris agreement which means their commitments and not completely as binding as the industrialized countries commitments are. so what we see here this is a common agreement on. speaking up for the paris agreement is a step up from the you to bind china more into the paris agreement to to make them to to make them step up for more climate targets so basically when you're on a european mission when it comes to this to this agreement so the you tried for for a long time. 2 yeah 2 to improve the chinese targets an on climate so we have to

10:05 am
