The republican President Donald Trump and his fellow republican legislative sycophants plan to tell the American peoples that the president is taking this step to save American laborers’ jobs and because he wants to keep his campaign promise to do this.
This is a bold faced lie. THIS WILL COST THE AVERAGE JOE, AN INCREASE IN JOBS. Fossil fuel and coal mining jobs are on the decline because of automation and good old fashioned market forces. Energy companies have been utilizing more and more renewable energy sources because the costs have become more competitive.
As of 2016, there were only 53,000 coal mining jobs but there are over 500,000 jobs in renewable energy industries. Which direction should the US be heading?
The US solar industry employment grew by 25% in 2016. The industry now employs 260,000 peoples.
But now, we will be losing out in developing the better paying jobs of the future. THE CLEAN ENERGY SECTOR IS WHERE THE JOBS WOULD HAVE BEEN CREATED.
The president is acting as a Russian asset. The only winner here is Russia as this is what its officials wanted. This move places a major wedge between the US and the G7 European countries.
THIS WAS A NON-BINDING AGREEMENT. The president could have done every thing that he stated in his 6/1/17 speech without withdrawing from the accord. One foolish pundit on a TV news show who was reminded of this fact, stated that the president wanted to be authentic. Please, this is President Donald Trump who could give a dxxn about being authentic when it is something he wants.
Here is the latest…
On 6/1/17, Phillip Rucker and Chris Mooney of the Washington Post penned the following report, Trump to announce U.S. will exit Paris climate deal.”
“President Trump will make good on a campaign promise to “cancel” the Paris climate agreement, officials say, breaking away from a global effort to reduce greenhouse gases.”
“The decision followed an intense struggle within the administration over the fate of the agreement, with Ivanka Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and business leaders urging the president to remain a party to the accord, and conservatives such as Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt calling for an exit.”
“Business leaders including Apple’s Tim Cook and Tesla’s Elon Musk had also lobbied Trump, arguing that the Paris accord’s “bottom-up” approach gave the U.S. latitude to adjust its targets and remain within the agreement. The United States will join two other nations — Syria and Nicaragua — in the U.N. climate group that do not participate in the accord.”
(The Country of Nicaragua did not sign on because the Paris Accord did not go far enough and Syria is fighting a war.)
