How Good Is The Paris Agreement

The Green Fund would probably require the United States to commit tens of billions of dollars, of which $1 billion has already been handed over by the United States – no one else is nearby; most of them haven`t even paid anything, including funds turned up by the U.S. budget for the war on terror. That`s where they got. Believe me, they didn`t come from me. They arrived just before I arrived. It`s not good. And not good as they took the money. The goal of the Paris Agreement is the same as that of the majority of Americans. The Paris Agreement is the first international climate agreement to contain commitments from developed and developing countries in the fight against climate change. That`s why the Chicago Council on Global Affairs found that 71 percent of Americans surveyed (57 percent of Republicans and 87 percent of Democrats) said the U.S. should continue to participate in the Paris Agreement. In short, the agreement does not eliminate coal jobs, it only relocates those jobs from the United States and the United States and ships them overseas. This agreement is not so much about the climate as it is about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States.

The rest of the world applauded when we signed the Paris Agreement – they went wild; They were so happy – for the simple reason that it put our country, the United States of America, which we all love, into a very, very big economic disadvantage. A cynic would say that the obvious reason of the economic competitors and their desire to stay in the agreement is that we continue to suffer this great economic wound that it has inflicted on itself. We would find it very difficult to compete with other countries in other parts of the world. One of the biggest successes of the agreement is the full recognition of the third pillar of the new climate regime, loss and damage (L&D). If climate protection does not prevent climate change and its effects are greater and irreversible, so adaptation is not an option, the consequences that many face are classified as L&D. A separate article of the agreement fully recognizes this aspect of reality and is dealt with on a lasting footing with the Warsaw International Mechanism (WIM). This mechanism was set up at the end of 2013, with a deadline for the first activity report at the end of 2016. Depending on the inclusion of L&D in the Paris Agreement, the future of WIM was uncertain. .
