Excellent! We are doing FAR BETTER than anyone else in reducing emissions than any member there. The only purpose for us to participate is to redistribute American wealth to other countries. It is completely worthless to us.

Good. The accord was non-binding, but even if the US followed it to a T, the effects would be negligible at best. All it served to do was stagger our economy. If you really care about the environment, then support GOOD solutions instead of whatever bullshit happens to be popular.

Great call!

It was a Ponzi scheme meant to get the US to subsidize other nations.

We are doing great at reducing carbon emissions on our own.

It’s funny when people complain that he did this and say he didn’t show “leadership”. Ummm, every other country in the world signed on to this so doing what everyone else does is hardly leadership. Leading is going a different way than everyone else....

Terrible decision to pull out. The government is letting fossil fuel companies decide how we’re running our economy and conservation efforts.

Don’t quote facts out of context you need to normalize the data

You can combine United States, India, Japan, Germany all together and it wouldn’t be as much is China. Until they get in line what’s the point. We already do more than they do. And seriously The size of the United States needs to be taken into account we have 5 million And Japan has 1.2. But they are also 26 times smaller than we are. So they pollute 30+ tons add carbon dioxide to our 5.

And FRANCE! The PARIS accord! Let’s Compare with them. We are 18 times bigger than they are and they pollute Almost a half 1 million tons Annually. So their equivalent is 8 tons annually compared to our 5 tons. I would bet if you went down all the countries you would find America to be quite low in comparison. Including China and Russia because most of their territory isn’t industrialized or even settled

The United States is the second largest polluter of carbon omissions in the world today and the largest in history. To pull out of the Paris Agreements is selfish, foolish and ignorant on our part.

PROMISES MADE! PROMISES KEPT!

Thank You 🙏🏻 President Trump for getting us out of this climate change FRAUD where countries like China can “sign” it but not have to reduce emissions at all and just “promise” to do so in 2030. What a joke! 😂

The rest of the world loved it because their biggest economic competition (us) would be paying for it! Of course they’d love it. They didn’t have to do a damn thing to curb emissions either. It was a ridiculous agreement that simply crippled the US and our workers. Not fair and wouldn’t reduce emissions. We’re doing a better job of that without the horrible globalists.

Interesting question with India in the news today due to their overwhelming pollution. It makes me wonder why everyone is hating on the United States when other countries are clearly not following any of these standards.

This is basically just a proxy question for trump at this point. I doubt people even realize how utterly meaningless the Paris agreement ultimately is to the environment, or if they even care. It’s just rooting for your team at this point

The US has been one of, if not the, leading country in terms of reducing carbon emissions, the US has been working on renewable energy, cars, turbines, hydroelectric, nuclear, we’ve been making great progress. We’re not even close to the leading country in carbon emissions, you tell me when you have to walk through an American city wearing gas masks because the pollution is so bad you can’t see 10 feet in front of you.

Great move! The Paris Accord is just a wealth redistribution scheme designed to rob the US and give our wealth to third-world countries.

Marganalize - nice theory.
We cut more that they do - action is leadership to conservatives - signing a feckless piece of paper is leadership to liberals.

Very bad call!
We will fall further behind in the development of alternative energy production, NRG of the future.🇺🇸
The earth’s climate will begin to change in ways we can’t predict.🤩
The present administration again reveals itself as a whore to the petrochemical industry.🤑
NRDC estimates dropping out of the agreement would cost the US $6 trillion in the upcoming decades and reduce the worldwide GDP by 25%. So much for the economic costs estimated by some based on a now debunked 2017 study.😢

Renewable energy is the fastest-growing energy source in the United States, increasing 67 percent from 2000 to 2016. Renewables made up nearly 15 percent of net U.S. electricity generation in 2016, with the bulk coming from hydropower (6.5 percent) and wind power (5.6 percent).

Global CO2 emissions continue to rise, reaching 33.4 Billion tons last year. Yet, many will be startled to learn that America easily leads the world in reducing CO2 output. Our reduction of 794 million tons over the past decade is a 1.4% annual rate of decrease.

“Supporting environmental protection and conservation” is talking point with no value.

Signing a feckless agreement with no way to hold any country accountable for their actions or non actions is not “Supporting environmental protection and conservation”.

Blindly following dogma that blames climate change on everything in order to increase government regulation and control is not “Supporting environmental protection and conservation”.

Investing in renewable energy would be beneficial for the sustainability, economy, and security of the United States.

Decreasing pollution in the water, land, and air will increase the health of citizens.

Even if you don’t believe in climate change, you cannot deny the fact that supporting renewable energy and fighting pollution is a good thing.

Yeah but no thanks to Donald J Trump who rolled back all of the Obama era requirements and then some, not to mention promoting fossil fuel over alternative energy....many businesses are doing it anyway despite this, doing it on their own. And who gives a shit how big a country is, we all need to do our part, I’m ok with US doing more. Doing nothing is NOT the answer.
