Good Sunday Morning,
The G-20 represents more than 80% of global growth, more than 80% of global emissions and more than 80% of our resource consumption. And when they met this week to talk about global issues, the main topic of conversation was climate change. German Chancellor Angela Merkel called climate and energy "the one crucial issue" at the G20 and spoke of her frustration at the US choosing to leave the Paris accord. "You are familiar with the American position, you know that unfortunately, and I deplore this, the United States of America left the climate agreement," said Merkel. "But I am very gratified to note that the other 19 member states of the G20 say that the Paris agreement is irreversible." Nineteen of the twenty leaders made it clear that they are moving forward to embrace a low carbon future with or without Donald Trump.
