Paris Climate Agreement: What If Donald Trump Withdraws
Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 US Presidential Election shocked many. Some panicked as people are skeptic about his policies about various issues. Environmentalists worry about the Trump policy about climate change, since the Republican candidate said that he would pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement once he became the president.
President Barack Obama is appreciated for his efforts on dealing with climate change. One of his most significant achievements is the Paris agreement. Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer highly lauded Obama for his "moral, intellectual and economic leadership" in realizing the agreement.
Steyer has spent big money on the climate change movement. He said Obama should be extremely proud of the Paris agreement. According to Steyer, the agreement says a lot about the United States' stand regarding the issue. He said clean energy would create more jobs. He insisted that clean energy in the US would be cheaper than fossil fuels.
"The strongest power of the American people is the will of the American people," CNN quoted Steyer as saying.
There is a possibility that Donald Trump may pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, which makes America proud, according to Styer. If that happens, a lot will change regarding Washington's stance on climate change. The White House has been asking other countries to take steps to counter climate change. Donald Trump, however, does not believe in the issue.
Kelly Sims Gallagher from Tufts University's Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy served the Obama administration from June 2014 to September 2015. The professor of energy and environmental policy worked as a senior policy adviser. She discussed how Washington's policies might affect China and Europe. She trusts Trump as a practical person.
"He prides himself on being a negotiator, and I think he will soon realize that the climate issue during the Obama administration became one of the sole bright spots in the U.S.-China relationship," Business Insider quoted Gallagher as saying.
Some experts believe Donald Trump may not pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement. The president-elect himself has started seeing a connection between climate change and human actions. Nevertheless, if he does pull out of the agreement, it may have a disastrous effect. The global effect on the cause may suffer a serious setback.
