French embassy lauds Philippines for ratifying Paris Agreement
French embassy in the Philippines congratulated and lauded the Philippine government on Tuesday for officially accepting the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.
The Philippines Senate approved the ambitious Paris Agreement by voting unanimously in its favor yesterday. The nation representatives had signed the agreement in New York in 2016.
Lauding the Philippine government, the Embassy said, “The Philippines now joins 133 other parties to the Paris Agreement, representing more than 80% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This call to the international community symbolized our shared commitment in the fight against climate change.”
The road to the Paris Climate Conference (COP21), which led to the crafting of the agreement, started in the Philippines in Feb. 2015 when French President François Hollande paid a visit to the nation for launching the Manila Call to Action on Climate Change.
In addition, the French embassy recognized the commitment demonstrated by the current as well as previous administrations to address the growing problem of global warming and climate change.
On the other hand, the United States’ Republican President Donald Trump isn’t ready to bow to the scientific community, which claims to have robust evidence showing a link between human activities and climate change. He continues to argue that the notion of global warming was created by China in order to make American manufacturing non-competitive.
