The agreement is a massive redistribution of wealth from the United States to other countries. With a growth of 1%, renewable energy sources can meet part of our domestic demand, but with 3 or 4% growth that I expect, we need all forms of American energy available, or our country – (Applause) – will be seriously threatened by power cuts and power cuts, our businesses will often stop, and the American family will suffer the consequences in the form of lost jobs and a very low quality of life. The Paris Agreement is an environmental agreement that was adopted by almost all nations in 2015 to combat climate change and its negative effects. The agreement aims to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit global temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels this century, while continuing to pursue ways to limit the increase to 1.5 degrees. The agreement provides for the commitment of all major emitters to reduce their pollution from climate change and to strengthen these commitments over time. It provides developed countries with a means to assist developing countries in their mitigation and adaptation efforts and establishes a framework for monitoring, reporting and strengthening countries` individual and collective climate goals. The same nations that are asking us to maintain the agreement are the countries that have cost the United States billions of dollars through hard trade practices and, in many cases, lax contributions to our critical military alliance. You see what`s going on. It`s pretty obvious to those who want to keep an open mind. If the United States pulls through, it could still have a voice in the UN climate negotiations. That is because he would still be a member of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the body that created the Paris Agreement. However, America would be reduced to observer status, meaning its negotiators could attend meetings and cooperate with other countries to produce results, but not vote on decisions. But without the United States, the balance between the parties that signed the Paris agreement shifts in China`s favor on key issues that have not yet been resolved.
According to Michael Oppenheimer, a climatologist at Princeton University in New Jersey, China could resist demands for follow-up and detailed reports on how countries implement their policies and achieve their goals. „It doesn`t bode well for the effectiveness of the Paris agreement,“ he says. Risks are increasing because, historically, these agreements only become ambitious over time. In other words, the Paris framework is a starting point, no matter how bad, it is not an end point. And the exit from the agreement protects the United States from future violations of U.S. sovereignty and from any future massive legal liability. Believe me, we have a massive legal responsibility if we continue to do so. BNP Paribas Asset Management`s proposal, presented by BNP Paribas Asset Management, won a 53% majority at Chevron and asked the oil giant to ensure that its climate lobby complied with the paris agreement`s objectives.
