Global Warming And Paris Agreement

A number of countries, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Russia, have already shown their willingness to confront U.S. efforts to roll back science around global warming. Negotiators of the agreement stated that the INDCs presented at the time of the Paris conference were insufficient and found that „the estimates of aggregate greenhouse gas emissions in 2025 and 2030 resulting from the planned contributions at the national level are not covered by the least expensive scenarios of 2oC, but lead to a projected level of 55 gigatons in 2030.“ and recognizes that „much greater efforts to reduce emissions will be required to keep the global average temperature increase to less than 2 degrees Celsius, by reducing emissions to 40 gigatonnes or 1.5 degrees Celsius.“ [25] [Clarification necessary] As President, I cannot consider the well-being of American citizens any other way. The Paris climate agreement is simply the latest example of the Washington agreement that disadvantages the United States for the exclusive good of other countries and leaves American workers – whom I love – and taxpayers to absorb costs in the form of lost jobs, lower wages, closed factories and very low economic output. Maintaining the agreement could also be serious obstacles for the United States when we begin to implement the restrictions on the abundant energy reserves of the United States, which we have very strongly initiated. It would have been unthinkable if an international agreement could have prevented the United States from conducting its own internal economic affairs, but that is the new reality we face if we do not leave the agreement or negotiate a much better deal. No responsible leader can bring workers – and people – of their country into this debilitating and enormous disadvantage. The fact that the Paris Agreement is hampering the United States, while allowing some of the world`s largest polluters, should dispel any doubt as to why foreign lobbyists want to link and bind our great country to this agreement: it is about giving their country an economic advantage over the United States. That will not happen as long as I am president.

I am sorry. (Applause) The Paris Agreement is hampering the U.S. economy to receive praise from foreign capitals and global activists who have long sought prosperity at the expense of our country. You don`t put America first. That`s what I do, and I always will. (Applause) The Paris Agreement is the first legally binding universal global agreement on climate change adopted at the Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21) in December 2015. In short, the agreement does not eliminate coal jobs, it only transfers those jobs from the United States and the United States and ships them overseas. This agreement is not so much about climate as it is about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States.
