The White House announced on Wednesday that the United States will suspend its annual climate change program after the U.N. General Assembly approved a landmark agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The move was announced by the White House and the U.,S.
Climate Action Network, a coalition of more than 30 climate groups.
It came after the climate talks in Warsaw, Poland, that ended on Monday.
“The United States reaffirms its commitment to working with our allies and partners in the Warsaw climate negotiations to reach an agreement that provides a robust, ambitious and cost-effective pathway for addressing climate change,” said White House National Security Council spokeswoman Jen Psaki.
The announcement came after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said that the U,S.
will not suspend its participation in the program and that it will be up to the Us.
Senate to decide whether to keep the program in place.
Haley, who is the top Republican in the Senate, said the U is committed to its climate action goals and will not back down.
The U.K. is the largest emitters of greenhouse gases and has made an unprecedented pledge to phase out coal, oil and gas emissions by 2030. “
I’m hopeful that the Senate will not be deterred by the political and economic challenges the United states faces, and will move forward to the negotiations in Warsaw in the coming weeks.”

The U.,Asis expected to ratify the Paris Agreement later this year, which aims to limit global warming to below 2 degrees Celsius, a goal the United.

The White Star Line, a Boeing 747 cargo jetliner, carrying some 2,500 passengers and carrying more than 2,100 tons of carbon dioxide, arrived in Warsaw on Thursday.
The planes’ carbon dioxide emissions are about 30 times lower than those of commercial airlines, according to the International Air Transport Association.
“We are very proud of this project that’s going to be bringing the United state together to bring the world together and deliver a great impact on the environment and on the economy,” Haley said at a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.
She also noted that the Paris agreement is a “fantastic opportunity” for the U to create jobs, grow the economy and support the environment.
