US officially withdraws from Paris agreement

US have become first nation in world to officially withdraw from Paris climate agreement. President Trump had revealed the same in June 2017, but the UN regulations makes it effective after US election. The Paris deal aims to keep the global temperature rise for this century well below 2C above pre-industrial levels and to chase efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5C.

Paris agreement was a load of shite. Countries were sending their industries to China and other poor countries. So in other words instead of cleaning up the factories and processes because you get taxed for creating Carbon, you ship it all to China, Vietnam, Mexico and other non western countries because they are not getting checked until 2030 or something. So we are still polluting the earth, just not from our backyard. Side note: Carbon Dioxide feeds trees and creates more atmosphere, carbon monoxide is the bad one.

Except for China and India who are the 2 worst by far. Yet the USA was going to be robbed of trillions of taxpayers dollars.

An agreement with each country setting its own goals and no enforcement. Remember tha, people, regardless of how trump wants to portray it.

Paris agreement basically doesn't exist without the US. Each country simply sent in a statement like, "we commit to not accelerating our co2 emissions as quickly as we hypothetically could". Most of the statements were meaningless and weaker than prior commitments anyway. The Obama admin were the only ones who actually made a significant commitment to anything at all.

Good, now let’s put that money into solutions, and not rely on other countries to combat emissions and waste.

Sad. We are doomed. We are no longer a leader in the world for positive change, embarassing.
