US formally begins to leave the Paris climate agreement

Paris climate accords: US notifies UN of intention to withdraw

Trump Plans Paris Climate Agreement Withdrawal

The Trump Administration has submitted formal notification to the United Nations to officially start the USA withdrawal process from the Paris Agreement, according to an announcement made today from the White House.

Despite Trump's announcement in 2017 a formal move to withdraw from the 2015 pact had to wait till this year because of a provision in the Paris Agreement.

Any "attempts to withdraw from the Paris Agreement outside of the above-described withdrawal provisions would be inconsistent with worldwide law and would not be accepted internationally", the memo says. Agreement rules prevented a country from pulling out in the first three years after the November 4, 2016, ratification.

He said "innovation and open markets" would lead to "greater prosperity and fewer emissions".

"The reality is, to really deliver on our climate goals, we do need strong federal action", says Rachel Cleetus of the Union of Concerned Scientists.

The White House didn't respond to a request for comment about the administration's upcoming plans, but a State Department spokesperson told The Epoch Times in a November 4 email, "The U.S. position with respect to the Paris Agreement has not changed". Until the withdrawal takes effect, the U.S. is obliged to maintain its commitments to the agreement, including reporting its emissions to the United Nations.

"In worldwide climate discussions, we will continue to offer a realistic and pragmatic model - backed by a record of real world results - showing innovation and open markets lead to greater prosperity, fewer emissions, and more secure sources of energy", Pompeo said in the statement.

Wildfires underway in California and events such as 2017's catastrophic hurricane season have helped make climate change a front-of-mind issue for US voters, in contrast to past years. That starts a withdrawal process that does not become official for one year.

The Paris agreement committed the USA and 187 other countries to keeping rising global temperatures below 2C above pre-industrial levels and attempting to limit them even more, to 1.5C.

Sen. Ed Markey, a co-author of the Green New Deal, tweeted Monday that Trump was "turning his back on future generations who will have to survive the most catastrophic impacts of climate change".

The Trump administration formally notified the United Nations on Monday of its intention to exit the deal.

Many critics of the Paris agreement say America is the leader in cutting carbon emissions, but that's not true.

It ranked the United States as insufficient because President Donald Trump reversed former President Barack Obama's climate policies and yanked Washington out of the pact.

"The US agreement is not a tax on the American people".

The resolution, introduced by Representatives Jodey Arrington (R-Texas), Chip Roy (R-Texas) and Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), among others, is purely messaging that won't pass the Democratic House.

It nearly goes without saying that there's a big problem with this rhetoric: it does not accurately reflect the urgency of addressing climate change.

The AIA and many among the architectural community, in general, aim to solve the climate crisis by promoting healthy building design and reducing carbon waste during and after construction.

"The Paris Agreement prioritized worldwide virtue signaling over the concerns of American families, seeking to hobble the American economy with unnecessary regulations and higher energy costs", Tom Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance in Washington, D.C., said in a statement.
