The country will abandon the climate pact within a year, one day after the presidential elections.

The United States Government has started on Monday the formal process to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. The most significant binding pact in the face of the climate crisis that establishes a global action plan to limit global warming.

US President Donald Trump announced on June 1, 2017, that Washington would withdraw from the agreement signed in 2015 in the French capital.

Although the petition has not been able to be formalized so far due to contractual issues of the deal itself, which prevented it from withdrawing from the First three years of ratification.

"Today, the United States began the process to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, the United States submitted formal notification of its withdrawal to the United Nations. 

The withdrawal will take effect one year after the notification is delivered.", announced the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, who signs the letter sent to the UN.

"President Trump decided to withdraw from the Paris Agreement due to the unfair economic burden imposed on US workers, businesses and taxpayers for the promises of the United States made under the agreement," he defended.

US President Donald Trump has announced his intention to withdraw the country from the Paris Agreement for the fight against climate change. In this way, the US will remain alone with Nicaragua and Syria, the only two non-signatory countries.

A measure questioned by Democrats and environmentalists. The letter sent to the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, sets in motion a process that will be completed only one day after the US presidential election. In which Trump, who denies climate change, aspires to re-election.

The environmental groups have their sights set on this date since they hope that the Republicans will be defeated to reverse the process.

The next president will have to meet the agreement immediately and commit to the transformation required by the climate emergency, said the director of the US Center for Biological Diversity,

All Democratic presidential candidates have promised to re-join the climate agreement signed by 200 countries.

The Obama administration joined the US to the agreement in 2015, promising to cut between 26% and 28% of greenhouse gases in 2030. 

However, Trump promised during the 2016 election campaign to abandon the pact, which he considered harmful to the US economy. "What we are not going to do is punish the Americans while enriching foreign polluters," Trump said recently, referring to China. 

The country that emits the most greenhouse gases in the world will become the only one out of the agreement, along with Nicaragua and Syria.
