6:07 pm
are very positive that a country as politically troubled as syria would make it a priority on its agenda its political agenda to tackle climate change and so the response has been overwhelmingly positive and. just a recognition of how the world is really coming together around this topic right well let's to your point there of course we had nicaragua also announcing that it's going to sign on which puts the u.s. in a very awkward position as the only country in the world to have stepped away to stepped away from the paris agreement so how isolated is the u.s. by going it alone. well i would say that certainly the government of donald u.s. president donald trump is extremely isolated it's literally the only country in the world after this announcement to not be not did not intend to be a party of i want to talk now about some of the other stories making news around
