Since the USA will no longer play along in the Paris Climate Accord, should the North America region be part of game?
Two key aspects of the Climate Accord:
1. Prevent the global temperature from rising 2 degrees by limiting CO2 emissions (build Greener power plants and discontinue use of fossil fuels)
2. The larger richer countries that made big profits using fossil fuels decades ago will contribute (CEPs) to poorer countries to help them develop greener power generation sources.

I know this is just a game, but what is happening in real world events seem be related to the mechanics of this game. So what would happen in a game where one region will not be cooperative?

Edit: typo

Re: What wil lhappen to the North American region?
They could add a 1 vs all variant, where one player is the U.S. and the others are the rest of the world. The U.S. player is aiming for economic growth at all costs without having to worry about climate change, while the other players have to work together to control the carbon emissions and thus play the real game.

Just kidding. In the long run I'm optimistic the U.S. will wake up and go back fighting climate change, so making them out of the game because of what happens in 2017 probably wouldn't age well.

I would suggest you move this topic to the Variant section.

Yeah I was thinking variant also at first, but then this is really a general question of what would happen if there is a lack of cooperation. In the old version a lack of cooperation would destroy the planet.

So it would be a variant that you can't win...

Was the US even part of the Kyoto Protocol when the original game came out?

Anyway, there is much more to North America than the US!

Getting out of the agreement is not that easy and will take some time. IT will take about 4 years for them to be removed. Like Obama said, by the time the US is out of the agreement the new president-elect has the call if they are out of it. Let us hope that America chooses a leader at that moment, that does care and prioritize the environment above his personal interests.

Yes. 4 years to get out and it would only take about 30 days for the US to recommit to Paris.

It's good to hear a bunch of city mayors (at least that's what I thought I read) deciding to stick with the accord anyway, despite what your president has decided...

Just so everyone is clear, North America is not just the US. Canada has no part in what those people below them do. Canada's "leader" doesn't do anything so nothing will change with Canada in the next 2.5 years lol

And neither is Greenland. I'm very certain Greenland are very keen to make sure the temperature does not rise that much higher than it already has there.

Canada's former "leader", Stephen Harper, arrived at a few press conferences using snowmobiles and jet skis. Different day - different political party - same PR stunt.
