No longer in Agreement with Paris on ClimateAn intelligent person would ask the first questions: What is the Paris Agreement actually about.
"The Paris Agreement builds upon the Convention and- for the first time - brings all nations into a common cause to undertake ambitious efforts to combat climate change and adapt to its effects, with enhanced support to assist developing countries to do so. As such, it charts a new course in global climate effort.
The Paris Agreement's central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Additionally, the agreement aims to strengthen the ability of countries to deal with the impacts of climate change. To reach these ambitious goals, appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building framework will be put in place, thus supporting actions by developing countries, in line with their own national objectives. The agreement also provides for enhanced transparency of action and support through a more robust transparency framework."
With the US pulling out of the agreement with Paris on climate there are plenty of speculations and information swirling around. We've read blogs and informational to get the best info to bring to you. Some of the information you hear from other sources will be based on opinion but not facts. We've dug deep to get the facts and thrown in a couple of opinions - but we make that clear what is what. Here's what you need to know.
President Trump announced that he would not be going through with the Paris Agreement. He stated that the agreement is a disadvantage to the US and will "cease implementation" unless Paris and the US can renegotiate its terms. At this time we are unsure (as most people are) how the revoking of the plan will work in the court systems. In the process of renegotiating a new agreement; it's going to take a fairly long time because in the agreement it states no country may give a notice to the United Nations to withdraw before three years from the agreement date (November 4 2016). With that being said, no country has left the Paris Agreement until now. Furthermore the withdrawal does not take effect until a year AFTER providing the proper notice.
- Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement has different impacts that include:
- trade with international territory
- the choices of investment funds across a number of industries
- efforts for climate change in the oil and gas as well as other energy sectors
- the role of environmental requirements of states such as NY and CA
These are only some of the changes, damages, and benefits from getting out of the Paris Agreement. Some countries are looking at this as a benefit. The director of National University's Climate Change Institute Mark Howden said, "This opens up opportunities for other countries to occupy the power vacuum that the US is leaving when it pulls out of these sorts of agreements... I could imagine some countries are very positive - seeing this as a good opportunity to start flexing their muscles internationally." Countries such as China, EU, and India are progressing in the green initiatives and have said to still be committed to the agreement. In the agreement there are plans to tackle the carbon emissions as well as global warming. A low-carbon economy transition is a big goal in the Agreement. So we're wondering what parts of this agreement are the part that the US "disagrees" with in order to pull out. Those things not being stated yet.
It is clear that majority of US companies and factories will relocate to centers to Asia, India, Indonesia and Vietnam and other countries that need foreign capital to reach renewable energy goals. So that means in simple terms. Less US jobs and the US doesn't need renewable energy as much as other countries does..... ???
Other sources we've found say that there was purpose to pull out of the agreement including the efforts to find new and innovative ways for renewable energy sources. Read more here.... http://fortune.com/2017/06/04/paris-climate-agreement-what-is-trump-deal-accord/
We feel there is more to come. More information, more reasons, and more changes. We believe in the climate change being something new and innovative. We need to pay attention to the climate and being able to implement renewable energy sources so there's doesn't come a time when everything is burnt up and nothing can be accomplished to revert the irreplaceable damage we've done. We feel the climate and climate change is real and deserves world wide attention and collaboration in order to help combat the negatives. We have to get on one accord for new and innovative technologies to be effective in the moves over to an all renewable energy world.
