BREAKING: Kingdom of Denmark defines itself as a “scientifically and culturally pluralistic society” and will begin a “federal dialogue” with the United States, the Danish Parliament announced today.
The announcement was made on Denmark’s Parliament’s website, which has since been taken down.
The language is “a continuation of the Danish tradition of science-based governance,” the Parliament’s press service said in a statement.
Denmark will also begin discussions with the European Union regarding the European Council’s position on climate change, the press service added.
In December, Denmark became the first nation to ratify the Paris Agreement on climate action.
The move has been criticized by some scientists who say it may lead to the loss of scientific knowledge.
According to the Danish government, the United Kingdom will become the first country to ratified the Paris Accord, which is set to go into effect on December 2020.
However, the deal requires the country to limit greenhouse gas emissions from its power plants, factories, transportation systems, and water treatment plants to no more than 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.
Denmark is the fourth largest producer of renewable energy in the world and is home to several international research centers.
The country has also invested in the development of advanced technology, including robotics, biotechnology, and biopharma.
