Us Out Of Paris Climate Agreement

In Donald Trump`s long catalogue of destructive things in the United States and the world, the withdrawal of the world`s main attempt to slow the effects of climate change must fall like the worst. [202] Trump held a press conference in the White House Rose Garden in June 2017, when he promised to withdraw from the agreement and said he was unfair to the United States, which would leave the agreement and then begin negotiations to resume it, or a new agreement „on a fair terms for the United States.“ Republicans have mixed down Trump`s decision to step down. Vice President Mike Pence said the Trump administration has shown „real leadership“ in pulling the United States out of international agreements that he called „a wealth transfer from the world`s most powerful economy to other countries in the world.“ He also said he did not understand why Democrats and Liberals in the United States and the left around the world are dealing with climate change. [65] [66] Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Of Representatives spokesman Paul Ryan, counsel to President Kellyanne Conway and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt hailed the decision as a victory for the American middle class, workers, businesses and coal miners. [66] [67] [68] Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton called Trump`s decision „courageous“ and said it was a burden on the U.S. taxpayer. [59] Maine Senator Susan Collins, however, criticized the decision and said she was disappointed. [69] Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger released a video address in which he called Trump`s decision a regression.

[59] China is allowed to build hundreds of other coal-fired power plants. Therefore, we cannot build the facilities, but they can, in accordance with this agreement. India can double its coal production by 2020. Remember: India can double its coal production. We have to get rid of it. Europe can also continue to build coal-fired power plants. Over the past three years, U.S. negotiators have participated in UN climate talks, while the government has attempted to use these events to promote fossil fuels.
