Are other countries reciprocating U.S. climate promises?

Optimism, though, should be tempered.

"Enter the anti-development green lobby. Enter the Democratic Party politics that push the 'Green New Deal' that envisions a rapid 'energy transition' to renewables and electric vehicles and the abolition of fossil fuels and the internal combustion engine.
