As news of Donald Trumps victory reached Marrakech on Wednesday, the many thousands of diplomats, activists, youth and business groups gathered in the city for the UNs annual climate conference were left in shock and disbelief that the US could elect a climate-change denier as president.

.

Some of the younger activists were in tears. My heart is absolutely broken at the election of Trump, said Becky Chung, a delegate for youth advocacy group SustainUS from California.

.

We will see a rising-up of peoples movements committed to mass civil disobedience to keep fossil fuels in the ground. The next four years will be critical. We have to get to zero emissions by 2050, she said.

.

The delegates from nearly 200 countries, many of whom had spent 20 years negotiating the complex Paris agreement which aims to limit global warming to a 1.5C rise, were tightlipped but clearly nervous. The US delegation went into a huddle, meetings were cancelled and talk centred on whether Trump would fulfil his often-repeated threat to withdraw the US from the UNs Paris Agreement  blitzing decades of fraught but ultimately successful global negotiations.

.

No one thought this could happen. Everyone here is in shock, said Bangladeshi scientist and diplomat Saleemul Huq. No one had anticipated this result and, hence, there was no plan B. We will have to think about what happens next.

.

Moroccos minister of foreign affairs, Salaheddine Mezouar, the meetings president, put on a brave face. We are convinced that all parties will respect their commitments and stay the course in this collective effort, he said.

.

But few people agreed with him because Trump has consistently denied 40 years of climate science  and he claims that manmade global warming is a Chinese hoax. Ditching the Paris treaty, he has said, is his number one environmental priority.

.

Withdrawal from the treaty, which was crafted over years by US diplomats, often against developing countries wills, would take four years to complete and would outrage world opinion. Many delegates in Marrakech privately think it more likely that a new US administration would choose to ignore it. Because the Paris treaty is voluntary, the US would face global opprobrium, but no sanctions or fines.

.

Instead of reducing US emissions by a quarter to 28% below 2005 levels by 2025, as the US has pledged, Trump would support US coal, gas and fracking and halt payments aimed to help developing countries adapt to rising sea levels and temperatures. The result would be to increase US emissions, set back attempts to hold temperatures to a 2C rise by years and, say business and activists, put a brake on the worlds renewable energy industries and consign poor countries to deeper poverty.
