World leaders meeting in Paris are expected to sign a deal to curb climate change on Saturday. Changes are still being made to a draft agreement and differences remain over key issues. But delegates say things are moving in the right direction.
Environment ministers from nearly 30 countries have met in Montreal to talk implementation of the Paris climate accord. The US has been sending mixed messages on the deal, following a report it might soften its stance.
US President Donald Trump has said he'll announce his decision on the Paris climate accord on Thursday. The European Union has said it stands ready to show leadership in the face of a possible US withdrawal.
The Paris deal is too costly for the US, said Donald Trump as he withdrew his country from the accord. The US now joins Syria and Nicaragua as the only nations not to support the landmark global climate change deal.
Donald Trump believes the climate is changing and that man-made activities are partly to blame, US envoy Nikki Haley says. Trump, who this week quit the Paris climate deal, previously called global warming a "hoax."
