US President Donald Trump’s campaign promises to overhaul climate change policies have begun to take shape with talks with climate skeptics critical to supporting the US government’s views. The removal of the climate change regulations of the Paris Agreement, which would have been of great benefit to the United States, seems to be a throwback to the 19th century.
Mr. Trump’s policies are a major setback and weaken America’s role in the international order.
Surrounded by mining executives, Trump signed an executive order to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CPP) and sophisticated that “we’re going to use clean coal, really clean coal”. and asserted that “employment will be created”. In fact, the U.S. coal industry is 50% more productive than it was in the 1940s due to the automation of the work, but the employment rate is only eight times lower.
The renewable energy industry has a very strong competitive edge and is expected to create millions of jobs, giving the US an edge in the global clean technology market. Many US companies are abandoning fossil fuels for their own economic benefit and are working to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.
Downplaying climate change is doing Americans harm. Not to mention the impact of burning fossil fuels on human health, extreme weather events and negative economic risks caused by climate change also have a significant impact on the business world.
Climate change is a constant topic at international conferences and around the world. Climate change is an important forum for discussion (including international conferences, G7, G20, meetings of banks and multilateral organizations, as well as influential public forums such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos). It is one of the agenda items to be considered in
The G7 summit at the end of May will be the place where Trump makes it clear that the world is out of step. Trump’s actions at the summit not only represent a major setback to meeting the emissions targets set by the world, they also put the Paris Agreement (climate change) itself in jeopardy.
In fact, if the United States, one of the world’s leaders in international climate negotiations, pulls back, there will be unforeseen problems in negotiations on peace, security, trade, etc. (because they are all so intertwined). I might. The ripple effects of being a lone wolf on climate change are widespread.
At a time when collectively must make major strides toward implementing clean, cutting-edge technologies to combat global warming, the international community is embracing Trump’s anti-Trump policies. You may waste your time dealing with it.
Even if an environmental policy is abolished through an executive order, it can still be challenged. Businesses, state and local governments, and NGOs (non-governmental organizations) are likely to challenge the Trump administration’s practices, which have already violated laws such as the Clean Air Act.
