We don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore.

The same day, Macron said "wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again" and called on USA -based scientists to come to France to work on climate-related issues, in an unprecedented English-language speech from the French presidential palace. At the conference, Syria said it would sign on to the Paris climate accord.

Other politicians and staffers slammed her for praising a regime widely suspected of war crimes under Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, such as the use of chemical weapons. The move leaves the U.S.as the only country in the world that is not supporting it.

Though Syria indicated its intention to sign onto the deal, it has not yet submitted its targets to cut greenhouses gases. Tesla CEO Elon Musk resigned from Trump's business council in protest.

President Donald Trump, who has expressed doubts that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the prime cause of global warming, announced in June that he meant to pull out and instead promote USA coal and oil industries.

"This should make the Trump administration pause and reflect on their ill-advised announcement about withdrawing from the Paris Agreement". Kerry told CNN. "Are they stupid". It would then take one year to fully withdraw - meaning the earliest the USA could officially withdraw is the day after the 2020 election.

On Oct. 23, Nicaragua announced it would join the Paris accord, despite its previous reservations.

The summit aims at promoting green projects and providing new funding sources, a few weeks after separate talks that are now being held at a global climate conference in Bonn, Germany.

In an address to delegates at a global climate meeting in Bonn, Germany, Syria's deputy minister of local administration and environment, M. Wadah Katmawi, said his country would join the Paris deal "as soon as possible".

France co-organizes the summit with the United Nations and the World Bank.

On Nov. 3, the Trump administration released its National Climate Assessment, a federal report that has been mandatory since 1990.

"Many of these events bear the tell-tale sign of climate change caused by increased greenhouse gas concentrations from human activities", he said. "For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence".
