This is not the first time the United States has not denounced an international climate agreement. The United States did not ratify the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, although it played an important role in its creation. In this case, the United States became a signatory to the agreement, but signalled almost immediately that it did not intend to assume its responsibilities. When Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election, climate optimists said that U.S. cities and states would fill any leadership gaps that would open up at the federal level. Today, six U.S. states agreed to continue and disclose greenhouse gas emissions under the Global Compact of States and Regions and to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. 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.
If the obstructionists want to end up with me, let`s make them non-obstructionists. We`re all going to sit down together, and we`re going to get back to the deal. And we will do it well, and we will not close our factories, and we will not lose our jobs. And we will meet with the Democrats and all the people who represent either the Paris agreement or something we can do, much better than the Paris agreement. And I think the people of our country will be delighted, and I think the people of the world will be delighted. But until we did, we came out of the agreement. 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.
This information covers the greenhouse gas emission reduction targets of all Member States for 2020, 2030 and 2050, as well as their basic years and progress in achieving their targets from 2015. Some states do not yet have formal intermediate targets, but all are encouraged to develop them. Democratic candidate Joe Biden said that if elected president, he would reinstate the Paris accord early in his presidency. The United States could become a party to the Paris Agreement 30 days after the official information of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
