    Exactly what fossil fuel concessions did Trump get? Did the other countries agree to use more? Please explain.

    The sTrumpet isolated himself and America. No wonder everyone's tired of winning so much.

    None of my concern? You were the one bragging about some concessions he was supposed to have won. Is he buying natural gas from Russia, or are they buying from us? How is that considered a concession, and how about some details?

    Germany ‘massively weakened’ draft G20 climate plan to appease Trump

    Latest draft of German plan for next week’s Hamburg meeting contains major concessions to US and opens door for coal projects to be defined as “clean”

    The action plan was intended to be agreed at next week’s Hamburg G20 summit. Climate Home has seen two versions, drafted in March and May of this year. The latter shows the degree to which the German presidency has bent to the will of the Trump White House.

    Several elements that have been removed in the May draft are:

    • A 2025 deadline for the end of fossil fuel subsidies
    • References to the risk of “stranded assets”
    • A call for “the alignment of public expenditure and infrastructure planning with the goals of the Paris Agreement”
    • A push for carbon pricing
    • A commitment to publish mid-century decarbonisation blueprints by next year
    • A pledge to develop a “profound” climate plan for multilateral development banks
    • Seven references to the UN’s 2018 review of nationally-determined contributions
    • 11 references to the 2050 mid-century pathway for net zero emission
    • 16 mentions of infrastructure decarbonisation
    “The US massively weakened the language in the energy part of the action plan,” one source with knowledge of the negotiations said. “It pushed for references to so-called ‘clean’ fossil fuels and made it less explicit that the energy transition has to be built on energy efficiency and renewables.”

    “It also provided cover to some other G20 members1 – such as the Saudis and Russia – to weaken some climate sections of the document, including the pledge to phase out fossil fuel subsidies.”

    Big deal. Virtually every other country in the world is still in the Paris Agreement and that ill assure their continued efforts to fight man made climate change.
