President Barack Obama joined with French Socialist President Francois Hollande to demand an international agreement to fight global warming, saying the two countries have already done much to help developing nations cope with a warmer future.
The two leaders co-authored columns in The Washington Post and French newspaper Le Monde discussing a slew of diplomatic issues from trade to handling Iran and Syria, as well as how to tackle global warming. Both leaders urged international action on global warming ahead of the United Nations climate summit in Paris next year.
“Even as our two nations reduce our own carbon emissions, we can expand the clean energy partnerships that create jobs and move us toward low-carbon growth,” Obama and Hollande wrote. “We can do more to help developing countries shift to low-carbon energy as well, and deal with rising seas and more intense storms.”
