While Obama was President, the USA was one of 195 countries like China, Russia and all EU member countries, to sign the Climate Agreement in Paris in 2015.
Now the new President of the USA, Donald Trump, has decided that it would be in the better interests of the USA to withdraw from this Agreement.
This would help to reduce US unemployment and permit the US to exploit its huge natural reserves of coal, gas and oil. As Trump says, "America comes first" !
The USA will continue being a leading World polluter !
Trump has imposed his will despite the fact that there was huge cross-Party opposition in the USA before his decision. There is now huge disappointment world-wide.
How can one justify saving US unemployment when this same decision also endangers millions of lives and even the future of our planet ?
