„Simply put, the U.S. should stay with the other 189 parties to the deal and not go out alone.“ Democratic candidate Joe Biden said that if elected president, he would join the Paris Agreement at the beginning of his presidency. The United States could become a party to the Paris Agreement again 30 days after the official information of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change that it wishes to join again. The country is then expected to present a new emission reduction commitment for 2030. The United States formally withdrew from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement. The future participation of the United States in the international compact will depend on the outcome of the presidential elections. Whoever wins the US presidential election, the US officially withdraws from the Paris climate agreement on 4 November. This measure is a blow to international efforts to stop global warming. While the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America – which it does and the mines begin to open. We have a big opening in two weeks. Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A large opening of a brand new mine.
This is unheard of. That has not been the case for years. They asked me if I was going to leave. I will try. The pioneering agreement reached in 2015 aims to limit global warming to „well below“ 2°C above pre-industrial temperatures. But in June 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States — the world`s number two greenhouse gas company — would withdraw from the deal. Others say the U.S. withdrawal is due in part to the Obama administration`s failure to get the Paris Agreement ratified by the U.S. Senate. While the United States played an important role in shaping the climate agreement, it will be the only one of the nearly 200 parties to withdraw from the pact.
But without the United States, the balance between the signatory parties to the Paris Agreement shifts to China`s benefit on key issues that remain to be clarified. In particular, China could resist requests for detailed monitoring and reporting on how countries are implementing their policies and achieving their goals, said Michael Oppenheimer, a climate scientist at Princeton University in New Jersey. „This does not bode well for the effectiveness of the Paris Agreement,“ he said. On June 1, 6, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States was suspending all participation in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and would begin negotiations to revive the agreement „on fair terms for the United States, its businesses, workers, citizens, taxpayers“ or to form a new agreement.  In withdrawing from the agreement, Mr. Trump declared that „the Paris Agreement is being undermined (the American economy)“ and „permanently penalizes the United States“.   Trump said the withdrawal would be in line with his America First policy. „We have worked very hard to ensure that any country in the world can join this new agreement. And so we lost one thing that we actually failed. There are also serious legal and constitutional issues. Foreign leaders in Europe, Asia, and around the world should have no more to say when it comes to the U.S. economy than our own citizens and their elected representatives….
