  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘Ambitious targets need strong domestic support,’ says analyst, ahead of US-led climate talks” – below is their description.

    After years of being a climate outlier due to Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, the US will steer global negotiations as it convenes tomorrow’s two-day global leaders’ summit on climate change. Its remit has arguably never been so urgent with 2020 ranking as one of the hottest years on record. Yet on the eve of the April 22-23 talks, the summit is already bearing fruit: The EU announced Wednesday it had reached a major climate deal exceeding the Paris accord targets, which climate scientists say are now necessary if a climate catastrophe is to be avoided.
