Trump's climate pullout could spell disaster for developing nations

When President Donald Trump chose to pull the United States out of the landmark Paris agreement aimed at fighting climate change, he made a choice with potentially world-altering consequences-and it might have been the local weatherman's doing.

President Trump pulls the US out of the Paris climate agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

"His decision will affect us as a beneficiary of $7.5 million (K23 million) from the US Agency for International Development under the Paris Climate Agreement", Polye said. Claims that other countries are exempt and that their support for the deal stemmed from restraints imposed on the US are also false. Alliances from which everyone benefits or actions that have a short-term cost but long-term, widely shared gains just make no sense to him.

In an act of much symbolic significance, China and the European Union merely one day after President Trump announced his decision agreed that they will increase their collaboration to address climate change and move toward a low-carbon economy.

And it seems like it's about far more than the details of the Paris agreement, which after all is a non-binding deal, or the economic impact or lack thereof on America. "The president is using executive orders to roll back climate regulations, and the pattern indicates that the climate will be not a high priority in bilateral negotiations either". This includes the goals and actions to reduce emissions outlined in the U.S.

Trump's misreading of the climate agreement doesn't end the nation's responsibility to the earth. Critics say that by pulling out of the deal, the US compromises its role as an worldwide leader on climate and risks jeopardizing global relations. They even had an unusual joint news conference Friday to advocate for individuals and local governments to continue to be good environmental stewards. Country's level of investment in renewables is unmatched by any nation including the USA, a renewable energy leader.

LeBron James overtakes Michael Jordan as NBA's greatest playoff point-scorer
While the Warriors own the record for greatest regular season record of all time , they can take home a postseason record as well. I'm a player. "So now, with the way the Finals went down previous year , if I were in his shoes, I would want the same thing".

In the ABC News/Washington Post poll, 51 percent of Americans said Trump is hurting worldwide efforts to address climate change. "I think it undermines our nation's standing in the world and it threatens humanity's ability to solve this crisis in time", he said on the "Fox News Sunday" program.

President Donald Trump says he will withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change.

Since taking office in January, President Trump has been under worldwide pressure to stay with the Paris Agreement.

"Everyone knows he isn't going to do that, because he doesn't believe in it", Kerry continued. The entire world is not secretly conspiring against the United States.

Opposition to Trump's decision outpaces support for it by a roughly 2 to 1 margin, with 59 per cent opposing the move and 28 per cent in support, the Washington Post-ABC News poll shows.

In an email announcing the "Pittsburgh Not Paris Event for President Trump" on Saturday morning, the campaign asked supporters to "dress in your most patriotic, red, white, and blue outfit". When he says "America First", he doesn't just mean that he cares more about our own welfare than that of other countries and people, but that he wants to win, which means others have to lose.
