The official return of the United States to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change represents good news for the country and the world, UN Secretary-General António Guteres said on Friday during a virtual event to mark the occasion. “The Paris Agreement is our pact with our descendants and the whole human family. This is the race of our lifetimes. We must go much faster, and much farther”, the Secretary-General said. Describing the occasion as “a day of hope”, the Secretary-General said he was particularly pleased to be commemorating the event with John Kerry, the US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate. “We rejoin the international climate effort with humility and with ambition”, said Mr. Kerry.
