Around 50 leaders set for Paris climate summit

05 December 2017

Mr. Obama praised the efforts of individual USA states and cities aimed at reducing carbon emissions, and said that America is still on track to meet climate goals set in past agreements.

While in France over the weekend, former President Barack Obama just couldn't help but take a verbal shot at his successor.

According to Obama, more women should be in leadership roles "because men seem to be having some problems these days", according to AFP.

"Not to generalize, but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialization", Obama said, according to the Agence France-Presse.

Obama's Tuesday afternoon speech will unfold as Republican President Donald Trump has said he will pull the US out of the Paris climate accords in which nations agreed to lower carbon emissions.

Around 100 leaders were invited to what President Emmanuel Macron called the One Planet Summit in July following Trump's announcement that he would withdraw the United States from the agreement that has been signed by 197 countries and territories.

Others think Obama should still be president.

But as is his grand tradition the former president could not resist the opportunity to apologize for America on foreign soil, and take a shot at President Donald Trump at the same time.

Obama said he uses spellcheck and punctuation.

Despite Trump's unwillingness to participate until the agreement is renegotiated, individual American companies - along with USA states and cities - have stepped up their commitment to the deal.

He said: "I think for example that the European Union needs to recognise that micro-managing every single aspect of life within Europe gets people frustrated".
