In the context of the COP 23 outcomes, the puzzling question is: how to save the climate? Starting from the multilateral negotiations that led to the Paris Agreement in 2015 and the French-Californian initiative "Make our Planet Great Again" as a response to President Trump's declarations, this article states that diplomacy and international law have to be more adaptive and inclusive. The emerging order from a fractal governance perspective and the power shift to Asia show the need of opening up for effective dialogue and attracting the BRICS to the UN sphere, not the BASIC.
