Withdrawing From The Paris Climate Agreement Hurts The Us
Categories: Sin categoría

Before the Paris climate talks, President Obama`s negotiators wanted to make sure it would take time for the United States to come to terms with a change of direction. The bad news is that current commitments are not enough to reduce emissions in line with the Paris Agreement targets. Nor is enough done to create communities that are resistant to the inevitable effects of climate change. Right now, as a result of the climate crisis, we continue to see increasing emissions from global warming, rising sea levels, chronic floods, extreme heat, intense drought, worsening forest fires and hurricanes, devastating food shortages and other negative effects that affect environmental communities around the world first and worst. If we do not remain within the parameters set by the Paris Agreement, serious climate events like these will only get worse. Article 28 of the agreement allows the parties to terminate the contract following a communication to the custodian, but the broadcast communication may not take place until three years after the agreement for the country comes into force. The payment is made one year after the transfer. Alternatively, the agreement provides that the withdrawal of the UNFCCC, under which the Paris Agreement was adopted, also withdraws the state from the Paris Agreement. The terms of the UNFCCC`s exit are the same as those of the Paris Agreement. Robert Iger, CEO of Walt Disney Company, also resigned and said, «In principle, I resigned from the Presidential Council because of the withdrawal of the Paris Agreement.» [181] In Donald Trump`s long catalogue of destructive things in the United States and the world, the withdrawal of the world`s main attempt to slow the effects of climate change must be considered the worst.

[202] The United States will officially leave the Paris Agreement on Wednesday, regardless of who wins. Of the nearly 200 nations that signed the agreement, the United States is the only one to deviate from its promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Paris Agreement has been essential for many corporate promises, including Amazon and Cargill. The historically right-wing group of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce opposes the president`s decision to withdraw from the agreement. Adapting to climate change is expensive, but there are also signs that it can be good for the economy. Between 2005 and 2017, 41 states increased their gross domestic product while reducing carbon dioxide emissions, according to a recent analysis by the World Resources Institute think tank, and investments in clean energy now create more jobs than investments in fossil fuels. USA Today said in an editorial: «There was no grandeur in the decision it made on Thursday, but only the increased prospect of a climate-hit globe abandoned for future generations.» [188] The New York Times called it «outrageous» and said that Trump «knew nothing or cared little about the science that understugs with the strong warnings about environmental disorders.» [189] Although the agreement was signed in December 2015, the treaty did not enter into force until November 4, 2016, 30 days after the ratification of at least 55 countries representing 55% of global emissions. Trump`s exit from the Paris accord will have an impact on other countries by cutting financial assistance to the Green Climate Fund. [12] The termination of the $3 billion
