That doesn’t mean the United States won’t have a strong presence at the meeting: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is attending along with 14 other Democratic lawmakers as part of a “Congressional delegation” separate from the official US entourage. “On behalf of the U.S. Congress, I am proud to travel to COP25 to reaffirm the commitment of the American people to combating the climate crisis,” she said in a press release. How this situation will play out over the next two weeks is currently unclear, but the two delegations are at odds: While the administration remains committed to leaving the Paris Agreement, the Democrat-led House wants to keep the country in. The Climate Action Now Act, which the House passed in May, aims to do just that. The next federal election takes place on November 3, 2020, and if a new president is elected, they could also potentially rejoin the Paris Agreement once in office.
