The greatest problem that can bring the laboriously gained global efforts down lies in Trump’s utter unpredictability and untrustworthiness.

Due to the lack of an overarching supranational body, which would possess the capacity and legitimacy to enforce what has been agreed upon in major global deals such as the Kyoto Protocol or now the Paris Agreement, the key element upon which they are built is mutual trust.
