Changes That Could Come From Leaving The Paris Climate Deal

Galeno Paniagua | 02 Junio, 2017, 07:28

"The President's risky action today will have a devastating impact on our environment, our economy, and our health", Governor McAuliffe said after President Trump announced the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate accord.

The White House began informing members of Congress Thursday afternoon that Trump planned to pull out of the United States from the landmark agreement, according to a congressional source. "But we will start to negotiate and we will try to see if we can make a deal that's fair".

That meant retooling the United States economy towards greater energy efficiency, and curbs on carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, perfluorocarbons, sulfur hexafluoride and nitrogen trifluoride, which contribute to global warming. "And if we can't, that's fine".

White House talking points obtained by The Associated Press said the Paris accord was "a BAD deal for Americans" and that the president's action would keep "his campaign promise to put American workers first".

Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron urged their allies to speed up efforts to combat climate change and said they would do more to help developing countries adapt. Chinese premier Li Keqiang, visiting Germany, said his country would remain committed to combating climate change, despite USA moves. The Central American nation complained that the accord wasn't stringent enough.

But some of his closest advisers, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt and conservative group had been pushing him to leave. "We don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore", he proclaimed.

Following a meeting of G7 leaders last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters: 'The entire discussion about climate was very hard, if not to say very dissatisfying'. "Mayors across the country should stand unified and work together from the ground up to find solutions to issues facing our cities and certainly the effects of our changing climate is one of them".

Macron said he wants a democratic transition in Syria, but not at the cost of the war-torn country becoming a failed state. Tatiana Vinnichenko from the Russian LGBT Network says the organization is discussing visas with four European countries.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker was less diplomatic, all but accusing the United States president of being ill-informed.

"I am a transatlanticist".

Among the many corporations that opposed the move to bow out of the Paris Agreement were Mars, Nike, Levi Strauss and Starbucks.

China, which overtook the United States as the world's biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in 2007, and the European Union will seek on Friday to save the Paris agreement.

"As it appears, that attempt failed", said Juncker.

The US, however, will not immediately pull out of the Paris Act.

Environmentalists, political leaders and business groups in California slammed President Trump's announcement Thursday to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement aimed at boosting renewable energy and reducing heat-trapping pollution from fossil fuels.

Meanwhile, General Motors, the No. 1 US automaker, said it would continue its commitment to "creating a better environment". Republicans and Democrats alike recognize that the Paris Agreement is about so much more than climate change .

Trump's top diplomat, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, warned against leaving the Paris deal.

The Government should not use the USA withdrawal as an excuse to do nothing on climate change, he said.

In an e-mail to The Straits Times hours before President Trump's decision, Dr Brahma Chellaney, professor of strategic studies at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi, wrote: "A United States exit. will strengthen the global impression that the U.S. negotiates, signs but then repudiates worldwide agreements".

The US president complained that the accord signed under his predecessor President Barack Obama gives other countries an unfair advantage over US industry and destroys American jobs.

Trump made this announcement in front of a battery of reporters when the temperature this afternoon was reported to be around 26 degrees Celsius.

Since taking office on January 20, Trump, who has called climate change a "hoax", has sent contradictory signals on the Paris deal.
