New Delhi: Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday said that the US should withdraw its words quickly with action, as expected, it is included in the Paris Agreement to combat global warming.
US President Donald Trump has questioned climate science and withdrawn the United States from the 2015 agreement, which was formally ruled out this month.
US President-Elect Joe Biden has pledged to renege the agreement and invest $ 2 trillion to get his country away from planet-hot fossil fuels.
Environment, Forests and Climate Change Minister Javadekar said, “America is welcome but it should fulfill its responsibility. In response, Reuters said whether Paris negotiations and procedures would gain new momentum with the new US administration.
“We want all countries involved but … they should not … bring new issues into the discourse. We want to start action immediately.”
Javadekar said that meeting the Paris Agreement target of warming capping at 1.5 ° C should be a top priority.
India, the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases and behind China on coal consumption, is committed to chasing net-zero emissions yet.
Battling some of the worst pollution on Earth, India has promised to increase its share of renewable energy to 40% of installed coal capacity by 23.3% by 2030.
Last month, Trump described India as “dirty”.
This prompted Biden – whose vice-president Kamala Harris is half-Indian – to tweet: “It’s not how you talk about friends – and it’s not how you solve global challenges like climate change.” . ”
According to a UN report in September, concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached record highs this year due to the economic downturn associated with the coronovirus epidemic.
