U.s. Paris Agreement

On June 1, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States was ending all participation in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and would begin negotiations to reinstate or form a new agreement “on fair terms for the United States, its businesses, its workers, its citizens, its taxpayers.” [1] In withdrawing from the agreement, Mr. Trump declared that “the Paris Agreement is being undermined (the American economy)” and “permanently penalizes the United States”. [2] [3] Trump said the withdrawal would be in line with his America First policy. The United States will formally leave the Paris agreement on Wednesday, regardless of who wins the election. Of the nearly 200 nations that have signed the agreement, the United States is the only one heeding its promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
