Countries unite to defy Trump climate threat

Delegates from more than 190 countries have issued an urgent call for action to tackle climate change. The Marrakech Action Proclamation calls for the highest political commitment to fight global warming. It is being seen as the united response of countries to the threat of Trump to pull the US out of the landmark agreement.
Campaigners say it shows the strength of the global consensus on the issue. The promise by Mr Trump to "cancel" the Paris Agreement and end financial support for international climate action has galvanised the countries meeting here in Morocco.
The Marrakech Action Proclamation sees 197 parties assert their belief that the world is warming at an unprecedented rate. Every country, it says, has an "urgent duty to respond".
"This year, we have seen extraordinary momentum on climate change worldwide, and in many multilateral fora," the document says.
"It is being driven not only by governments, but by science, business and global action of all types at all levels.
"Our task now is to rapidly build on that momentum, together, moving forward purposefully to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to foster adaptation efforts."
