Ivanka Trump has been selected by her father to head the review of the U.S. role in the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
According to Breitbart, both Ivanka and Jared Kushner and Rex Tillerson have urged Trump to stay in the agreement.
This comes around the time of deep divisions in the Trump administration over the “carbon cutting agreement.”
There was a time Trump called climate change a hoax perpetrated by China, promising to cancel the deal.
A State Department official has told the Associated Press, “The decision to participate in next week’s U.N. climate talks shouldn’t be construed as a sign that Trump has decided to stay in the Paris pact.”
There are now 144 parties out of 197 that have ratified the agreement already. You can go to unfccc.int to find out who the participants are and who has ratified the agreement.
