TRUMP SAYS HE IS WITHDRAWING FROM PARIS CLIMATE ACCORD ~ 6-1-17 ~ Trump By Trump by T. Rump
President Trump fulfills his campaign promise to withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Accord signed by 195 nations. It is His failure to recognize global warming. His daughter, scientists, foreign leaders, business executives, energy companies and many of his advisors lobbied heavily for Him to remain a part of the deal. Reason did not prevail. It seems like an extremely poor business decision.
The historic accord set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and limiting the rise in average global temperatures.
Under the terms of the agreement, Trump cannot withdraw until November 2020 – the next election. But the drama show went on today anyway.
Trump has denied the existence of climate change. His EPA head does not accept the scientific fact that humans are causing global warming by releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Only two countries — Syria and Nicaragua — have completely rejected the deal. Some countries, including Iran, Turkey and Russia have not fully approved.
Our pulling out of the agreement is going to cause other countries to do less.” The $100 billion a year pledged to help developing countries achieve emissions cuts could be a risk. China is likely to take the lead on climate change and producing clean energy. Moral leadership and potential profits from green energy are at risk as well as the U.S. keeping a spot at the negotiating table to influence enforcement of the agreement
Hopefully, our businesses will continue their efforts to lead the world in Green Energy..
