This petition had 21 supporters
The UK government did not join France, Germany and Italy in the statement in response to US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. We can only assume this was an unfortunate oversight considering they have a lot going on at the moment.
Therefore, we, the UK population, hereby co-signs this statement.
We, the Heads of State and of Government of France, Germany, Italy, and the people of the UK, take note with regret of the decision by the United States of America to withdraw from the universal agreement on climate change.
The Paris Agreement remains a cornerstone in the cooperation between our countries, for effectively and timely tackling climate change and for implementing the 2030 Agenda sustainable development goals.
We deem the momentum generated in Paris in December 2015 irreversible and we firmly believe that the Paris Agreement cannot be renegotiated, since it is a vital instrument for our planet, societies and economies.
We are convinced that the implementation of the Paris Agreement offers substantial economic opportunities for prosperity and growth in our countries and on a global scale.
We therefore reaffirm our strongest commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement, including its climate finance goals and we encourage all our partners to speed up their action to combat climate change.
We will step up efforts to support developing countries, in particular the poorest and most vulnerable, in achieving their mitigation and adaptation goals.
