Climate change: Parliament to debate today on U.S. withdrawal from Paris agreement

U.S. President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the 2015 United Nations climate change agreement will be discussed on Wednesday morning

The announcement from U.S. President Trump has been criticised on previous occasions by EU lawmakers, who announced that the European Union will stick to its commitments and move forward with its own climate legislation

Parliament will vote on legislation implementing the Paris agreement the same day, by cutting emissions from the agriculture, transport, building and waste sectors by 30% by 2030.

You can watch the plenary debate via EP Live, and EbS+.
