Trump advisers to meet Tuesday to discuss Paris climate agreement

Trump advisers to meet Tuesday to discuss Paris climate agreement

It is far from clear how the Trump administration could actually "exit" the Paris agreement, assuming that the Pruitt line wins and the administration determines that it wants to.

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) chief Scott Pruitt on Thursday hailed a new era of environmental deregulation in a speech that took place in a coal mine recently fined for polluting local waterways. "It's something we need to exit in my opinion..."

"If Trump allows this deal to go forward, he will unwittingly fulfill Hillary Clinton's arrogant and dastardly promise to put every coal miner in America out of a job", Heritage fellow Stephen Moore and research associate Timothy Doescher wrote in a recent op-ed. It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach. "China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030", Pruitt said on "Fox & Friends". "We front-loaded all of our costs".

The Obama administration had promised the world that the United States would reduce its emissions by 26 to 28 per cent below its 2005 levels by the year 2025. Opponents of the pact believed that these goals would hurt American competitiveness while proponents touted supposed environmental benefits.

And the agreement requires China and India to cut a higher percentage of their emissions than the U.S. United States carbon dioxide emissions declined from 2005 to 2016 by 14 percent largely due to hydraulic fracturing providing cheap and plentiful natural gas to consumers.




Trump in the past has voiced skepticism about the deal. What role will energy markets play in determining policy? "It's true, we are and it's the right thing to do".

WASHINGTON, April 17 President Donald Trump's top advisers will meet on Tuesday to discuss whether to recommend that he withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, a White House official said on Monday.

"A number of large companies are calling on President Trump to remain in the agreement because they stand to make a lot of money, stamp out their smaller competitors, and negotiate for their own special handouts", Pyle, who headed the Energy Department transition team for Trump, told TheDCNF.

The White House is expected to announce their decision on the Paris deal at the G-7 meeting in Italy at the end of May.
