The entire world has signed on, save only Syria and Nicaragua. It appears that Donald Trump now means to expand that group of two to include the United States of America.
Donald Trump Dooms Us To Climate Change
Just when you think that Donald Trump can’t take a more offensive position about a crucial issue, he does. This time he has taken a position against both the Paris Accord and the climate change, and undoing years of hard work by the Obama administration, numerous scientists and experts, and the heads of state of other countries who signed on to the Paris Accord. His actions can be described as nothing less than irresponsible and dangerous.
By pulling the United States out of this landmark treaty, designed to combat global warming and climate change, he is allowing the United States to be put in the back seat behind other countries who have taken progressive actions to fight climate change. Not to mention, his denial of the existence of climate change, which has been proven to be a fact by 97% of the scientific community, effectively closes the door to the future of the development of renewable energy and the potential for the creation of a huge number of jobs created by this new and upcoming industry.
Donald Trump is allowing his own personal prejudice to hamstring the development of the renewable energy industry in the United States. If that wasn’t enough, it keeps the pretext of wanting to be a job creator. Again, he shows himself to be a hypocrite.
By denying that climate change is a fact, Trump shows himself to be just another corporate dinosaur who hates any type of regulation, no matter how necessary it may be. His laissez-faire capitalist attitude that puts profit before people puts a large portion of the world’s population in danger from climate change, just to make a profit for him and his wealthy friends.
Withdrawing the United States from the Paris Accord is the most irresponsible and indefensible position that he has taken thus far. In taking this action, he has declared war on those of us who believe that climate change is probably the biggest danger facing our planet and its inhabitants.
