"The mistaken decision of Trump will significantly weaken the Paris deal, but will not destroy it. It is bad that the United States isolate itself in the issues that have importance for the whole planet," Sobotka said on its Twitter account.
The Paris climate deal was signed in 2015. The agreement aims at keeping the increase in average global temperature at below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Being one of the most developed industrial countries in the world, the United States is one of the largest global producers of carbon emissions, and its efforts to control emissions are important for global climate efforts.
