Roseanna Cunningham: How Scotland is defying Donald Trump. The world is showing its commitment to fighting climate change, writes Scottish environment secretary Roseanna Cunningham. Donald Trump may have rubbished climate change but I am proud to say international communities have not. We have seen some real messages of solidarity coming from the annual United Nations’ climate talks in Bonn this week, with delegations of senior US politicians and captains of industry defiantly declaring that much of America still supports the Paris Agreement. Over the next week both the First Minister and myself will be joining these discussions, as part of Scotland’s commitment to contain global temperature rises to well below two degrees Celsius, and to pursue efforts to limit the rise even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
