We are out of the global agenda but that doesn’t mean we won’t do the right things to be more environmentally smart. We are putting America first! MAGA.
The United States has formally begun the process of pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, which backs a promise that President Donald Trump made in 2017 when he first announced his intention to withdraw from the climate change initiative.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the move in a statement on Nov. 4, calling the accord unreasonable.
“President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement,” Pompeo said. “The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy.”
The secretary said the United States formally notified the United Nations on Nov. 4 about its plans.
Pompeo said the “U.S. approach incorporates the reality of the global energy mix,” adding that “innovation and open markets” will drive reductions on emissions.
“Just as we have in the past, the United States will continue to research, innovate, and grow our economy while reducing emissions and extending a helping hand to our friends and partners around the globe,” he said.
