The Agreement required countries create their own climate action plans and restrictions, and the Agreement does not actually contain any formal penalties for nations that fail to meet their own self-imposed targets.
For his part, Trump seemed to take steps back from his statement withdrawing the US from the Paris agreement last summer and hinted that the USA might actually rejoin the agreement. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.

He also underscored the need for cooperation between Islamabad and Kabul to stabilize the situation in Afghanistan. The ambassador stressed that the two countries should not be on collision course.
The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement deny the US competitive edge. "According to some estimates, we would have had to close businesses in order to qualify by 2025". "I'm not going to let that happen", he added. "I feel very strongly about the environment", he said, adding that the United States wants "to have clean water, clean air, but we also want businesses that can compete".

Notably, Trump lauded Norway's hydropower prowess.
However the remarks came on the same day that Mr Trump dismissed the importance of renewable energy and said he was a "massive" supporter of oil. In fact most of your energy or your electricity is produced by hydro. In fact, USA hydropower generation was almost double that of Norway, which produced 143.4 TWh of hydropower in 2016. "And it's a great asset that you have".
