Paris Agreement and Trump – level 3

05-06-2017 15:00

Environmentalists are outraged, as Trump announced the US would withdraw out of the Paris Agreement, which is an agreement on dealing with greenhouse gas emissions mitigation.

Public figures, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Trudeau and Hillary Clinton, took to twitter with the #Paris Agreement. Emmanuel Macron, Australia Greens Party Leader, and the Japanese Environment Minister made announcement in response to Trump, with the Japanese Minister saying that he is not only disappointed, but greatly angered.

In contrast, Americans in coal-mining regions of the USA are applauding Trump’s decision which protects their jobs as he promised.

Difficult words: outraged (angered, shocked), withdraw (leave; stop being a member or participant), mitigation (the action of reducing something), applaud (celebrate).
