Minister Mykkänen worried about the US climate policy: We need to monitor the country’s slipping from agreements closely


Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Kai Mykkänen talks to Yle about what kind of consequences Donald Trump’s presidency could have on the country’s climate policy. Mr Trump, for example, promised earlier to cut climate subsidies by billions and to increase oil and gas production in the US. Minister Mykkänen has been worried about the development. However, he believes that Mr Trump also wants to get less dependent on oil from Arabic countries. Mr Mykkänen is most worried about the US turning to the opposite direction as the country’s climate policy development has been very positive in recent years. He also considers China’s and India’s current situation comforting when comparing to what it was 15 years ago.
