The US will take action on greenhouse gases and engage with other countries on the climate emergency despite Donald Trump's rejection of worldwide cooperation, a delegation from the US Congress has told the United Nations climate conference in Madrid.
The event, which has gathered around 30,000 participants, will run through 13 December.

Ahead of the summit's opening, scientists released a number of reports warning that only drastic and unprecedented reductions in greenhouse gas emissions could avoid the most catastrophic impacts of climate change. Delegates from nearly 200 countries have begun a two-week worldwide climate conference in Madrid that seeks to step-up efforts to stop global warming.
