President Trump Proves How He Feels About Climate Change And Will Withdraw the U.S. From the Paris Climate Agreement
If we didn’t know before, we now definitely know where President Trump stands when it comes to global warming and climate change.
Today, news broke about President Trump’s plans to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement. This would cause a major break from international partners and would isolate the United States in the global efforts being made to reduce global warming.
By withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement, President Trump is putting this country against every other nation on Earth with the exception of Syria and Nicaragua. This is also reversing the strides former President Obama’s administration made on climate change.
For many who may not be familiar, the Paris climate agreement was established in 2015 during a conference in the French city. Besides Syria and Nicaragua, who believed the deal was not strong enough, every nation signed on. What the Paris climate agreement does is countries pledge to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but are given leeway in how much they plan to reduce them by.
President Trump has spent months debating on this issue which he campaigned against. He feels the agreement has negative effects on jobs in areas where he won a large percentage of votes, such as states in the Rust Belt and the western plains.
Something tells us this won’t be the last of President Trump’s controversial decisions.
