Trump says US will abandon global climate accord

Trump says US will abandon global climate accord

Musk had hoped to be a moderating influence on the council, but in breaking news today, Trump said that "in order to fulfil my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the USA will withdraw from the Paris climate accord". "That incredible diplomatic achievement could not have been secured without the decisive role of the United States of America".

"So we're getting out but we'll start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair".

In his half-hour address, Trump did not deny the scientific consensus that rising global temperatures - nearly certainly caused by human activity since the industrial revolution - is a threat to the planet. "This amounts to a very significant reversal of the downward trajectory that USA emissions have been on", explains Bill Hare, one of the report authors and CEO of Climate Analytics, a nonprofit climate science and policy institute. " and "an expensive hoax" perpetrated by the Chinese".

"Climate change is real".

Even though I think the climate scare is a fraud and that the models have failed so far, Trump is smart to limit his challenge to his duty to protect the national interest. "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris".

It would shake up Serie A to give that league greater prominence across the world. "It is not easy to play or coach at this club". If that were true, we would have seen a Premier League side in or around this final, but they have been sorely lacking.

With Trump's action, the United States will walk away from almost every nation in the world on one of the pressing global issues of the 21st century.

"The rest of the world applauded when we signed the Paris agreement". Suggesting renegotiating re-entry was not a major priority, he said, "If we can, great". The EPA's rule would have dropped Carbon dioxide emissions by an additional 9.2 million metric tons of Carbon dioxide in 2025-a little under 1 percent of theU.S.'s previously planned efforts to reduce emissions for its Paris target.

Trump said during a White House Rose Garden announcement that the USA will exit the landmark climate agreement aimed at reducing carbon emissions to slow climate change. Even fossil fuel companies such as Exxon Mobil, BP and Shell say the United States should abide by the deal. "The report is a useful statement of what might happen if the Trump administration got its way", says David Keith, professor of applied physics and public policy at Harvard University. Merkel had previously vowed to "convince the doubters" among world leaders that "protecting the climate matters to all of us". By leaving open the possibility of re-entering the agreement, he ended up on the more moderate end of the range of options the White house had been exploring.

The White House later sent out written talking points, which were obtained by POLITICO.

Trump has already moved to dismantle Obama-era climate change regulations, including the U.S. Clean Power Plan aimed at reducing emissions from main coal-fired power plants. But Trump has also been known to change his mind, as he did in April with the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Yet Trump resisted tremendous global pressure from allies on the Paris accord. After the 2016 election, he agreed to serve on Trump's Strategic and Policy Forum, a group of prominent CEOs who advise the president on economic policy issues. "It's contrary to science and his obligation to protect American kids and future generations", McCarthy said. "The U.S. would be risking pariah status on the global stage by withdrawing from Paris".

The Associated Press interviewed dozens of scientists and consulted computer simulations, and they say without the USA pledges, the risky 2-degree rise is almost inescapable. "But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I'm confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up". But make no mistake: "if President Trump won't lead, the American people will", said Gore in a statement.

But Trump opted to pull the US out of the 2015 agreement reached by 196 nations, all pledging to reach net-zero greenhouse gases by the end of this century.

Under the terms of the agreement, the earliest a nation can formally withdraw is November, 2020 - the same month Trump will run for re-election.
