said that europe should make up for the shortfall in funds that will result in the u.s. deciding to leave the paris climate agreement. i would like to see the largest possible number of european countries at our side altogether to make up for the loss of u.s. funding. but i can guarantee you that as of twenty eight thousand the un panel on climate change won't last a single cent to work advance and support our decision. proposal conard hucky applause now world leaders must translate their message of action into action or deeds back home. that's right actual deeds let's go now to my colleague christopher spring gate he is covering the climate talks force in bonn good evening to you christopher i mean we had a lot of speeches today right we heard from the the german brezhnev the german chancellor we heard from the french president there are a lot of words what about actions.
well. in concrete results from the speeches today i mean this is the first climate conference since president trump announced that the u.s. would be withdrawing from the paris agreement he did that last july so a lot of people at this conference have been very looking very carefully to see whether the commitment of the rest of the world to the paris agreement remains strong and that really is the most concrete result of all these speeches it does remain very strong you talked a lot about the united nations secretary general ted ish we also had the speeches from the german chancellor angela merkel the french president. both of them defining climate change and humanity central challenge both of them standing by the paris agreement very strongly and also calling for additional measures so that is something that people at this conference have been looking for today they called it . we know that they were really pushing trying to inject
