Paris Agreement and Trump – level 1

05-06-2017 15:00

The Paris Agreement is an agreement on emitting less greenhouse gases. Trump wants to pull back from the agreement.

This makes a lot of people angry. Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Trudeau and Hillary Clinton tweet about this. Emmanuel Macron, Australia Greens Party Leader, and the Japanese Environment Minister talk about this. The Japanese Minister says that he is very angry.

However, some Americans are happy. They are mostly miners. They want to keep their jobs.

Difficult words: agreement (something that you promise to do), emit (put into the air), greenhouse gas (a gas which makes the planet warmer), miner (a person who mines – gets something like coal out of the ground).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
