“The world is capable of acting, also without the US”

Süddeutsche Zeitung

It is “remarkable” that the G20 summit in Hamburg did not end up in scandal given that US President Donald Trump came across like a “grizzly bear among a mountaineering rope team”, writes Stefan Ulrich in an opinion piece for Süddeutsche Zeitung. “Above all, this summit sends out the message that not even the United States – still the world’s most powerful country – succeeded in dissuading the others from climate protection,” he writes. All other G20 members reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris Climate Agreement, showing that the world was “capable of acting without, and even against the USA”, writes Ulrich.
