The last-minute deal struck at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP24) in Katowice, Poland, offers a glimmer of hope for the future not just of climate action, but also of global governance.To navigate the current era of global turbulence, the world will need forward-facing ideas.Then, after winning the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Donald Trump decided that unless the JCPOA addressed every issue exactly as he would have wanted, it was worthless. So he decided unilaterally to withdraw the U.S. from the deal and reimpose strict economic sanctions on Iran.Likewise, until Trump took power, the Trans-Pacific Partnership represented a next-generation trade agreement linking the United States with 11 other Pacific Rim economies.Here, too, by withdrawing the U.S. from the TPP immediately after taking office, Trump crippled the agreement. That brings us to the 2015 Paris climate agreement, which was hailed as both a breakthrough in addressing climate action and a pioneering approach to global governance.
