UN climate talks end with pleas for Trump to join fight

Countries also demanded solidarity with those countries most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, highlighting the need to support efforts aimed to enhance their adaptive capacity, strengthen resilience and reduce vulnerability.

Some companies were seeking profit from energy regulations while others were giddy to ride the wave of political correctness and enjoy positive public relations by joining efforts to combat climate change.

This finding was confirmed in the latest election as Donald Trump lost the popular vote. Our success demonstrates that taking action on climate change goes hand-in-hand with robust job creation and a thriving clean energy economy. Global cooperation rooted in strong national action is essential, he noted, saying that no country, irrespective of its size or strength, is immune from the impacts of climate change, and no country can afford to tackle the climate challenge alone.

Negotiators from almost 200 countries wrapped up two weeks of talks Saturday vowing to press ahead with the fight against climate change - with or without the help of the next USA president.

The conference started just days after the entry into force of the December 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change, which has so far been ratified by 111 parties.

With the election of Trump, Obama's entire climate change agenda is at risk and big business is in a panic.

Now, the tag team of the world's top two polluters may be undone by Donald Trump, who has pledged to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement. "That's why I hope that the Republican administration will continue to support this process", he said, adding that China "will continue its effort to support the Paris agreement".

Robert Stavins, director of Harvard University's environmental economics program, likened the impact of Trump's election on climate change to an engine problem for a bus that had been speeding on a freeway from NY to California.

During the presidential campaign, Trump was aggressively pushing a pro-carbon rich energy policy that is 180 degrees different from Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Pakistan has also developed a National Sustainable Development Strategy, and its National Assembly has passed a resolution adopting the SDGs agenda as its own national development agenda.

"The first climate conference after the Paris Agreement has indeed proven to be conference for implementation and joint action", said the United Nations climate head Patricia Espinosa at the end of the talks, pointing to 80 millions dollars pledged for countries to adapt to climate change and progress in establishing implementation rules. "Also, quite frankly, they've told the USA not to be a rogue state".

Recent news reports China is increasing its coal-fired electricity generation as high as 20 percent over the next four years. This was done in record time and progress on the agreement was going well.

"We are going to use this positive momentum to grow the United Kingdom low-carbon sector, which is already worth over £46 billion, as we continue to provide secure, affordable and clean energy to our families and businesses", he added.

Trump's election has cast a long shadow over the fortnight's talks, and no one is yet sure whether the U.S. will continue as a member of the negotiations going forward. "Climate change shouldn't be a partisan issue in the first place", Kerry concluded, according to CNN. But after the law failed to get through Congress, Obama made a decision to implement his energy policy through the EPA regulations putting the effort on shaky ground. All countries also called on all non-state actors to join them "for immediate and ambitious action and mobilization, building on their important achievements".

Referring to the momentum on climate change worldwide, and in many multilateral fora, the Proclamation said this momentum was irreversible, being driven not only by governments, but by science, business and global action of all types at all levels. There are a few delegates from Pakistan's Ministry for Climate Change relaxing in the office.
