Berlin, June 26: Climate change is a fact and yes, global warming plays a huge role in it. The biggest glaciers in the Antarctica are melting away resulting into the increase of sea water level. This is just one of the effects of global warming. To decrease the level of pollution in the world, dozens of city mayors from around the world including Washington, Berlin Paris, Tokyo and Sydney called on to G20 leaders to stick to their commitment on tackling climate change.


The biggest shock to the environmentalists came when U.S President Donald Trump announced his “pull-out” from the Paris Climate Accord. However, 19 leaders from the G20 Summit have decided to safeguard the future of this planet more than anything else. And amongst all this included the Mayor of America, Rudy Giuliani.

The world city mayors, led by Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo, said they were inspired by the courage shown by more than 300 mayors in cities across the United States who have committed to upholding the Paris Agreement despite Trump's decision. In a joint text distributed to media outlets worldwide and posted online, the C-40 mayors of the world's great cities urged leaders from the Group of 20 on behalf of the hundreds of millions of citizens that we represent to deliver on your commitments to tackle climate change, one of the world's most pressing issues.

The 20 leaders will gather in Hamburg, Germany on July 7 and 8.
