The authors of the Paris Agreement made it difficult to get to leave and relatively easy to reach, meaning that a US president could announce his intention to re-engage and reintegrate within 30 days. However, the head of state should promise tough new commitments and clearly describe how the country can meet them, a bigger task now that several years have passed and many gigatons of greenhouse gases have been collected from the atmosphere. “The reality is that to truly achieve our climate goals, we need strong federal action,” said Rachel Cleetus of the Union of Concerned Scientists. “The sad reality is that U.S. carbon emissions have actually increased over the past year.” Many U.S. cities, states, and businesses have also pledged to significantly reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the coming years. Twelve states and at least 165 U.S. state cities plan to get 100 percent of their electricity from renewable sources, according to the climate monitoring group America‘s Pledge. Angola was the last country to ratify the climate agreement on 12 August 2020.
Kyrgyzstan was ratified on 18 February and Lebanon on 5 February. His view on the Paris Agreement was that it was unfair to the United States and freed up countries like India and China to use fossil fuels, while the United States should limit its carbon. In reality, the United States under President Trump moved away from that goal years ago. Right now, we‘re about halfway to the Obama-era goal and we‘re not on track to achieve it. While emissions are unlikely to rise, they will not decline fast enough to avoid the worst effects of climate change. The Paris Agreement has been at the heart of many corporate commitments, including those of Amazon and Cargill. The historically right-wing American Chamber of Commerce business group opposes the president‘s decision to withdraw from the deal. Global carbon dioxide emissions by country in 2015. Former President Bill Clinton wrote: “To depart from the Treaty of Paris is a mistake. Climate change is real.
We owe our children more. Protecting our future also creates more jobs.  Former President Barack Obama said of Trump‘s decision: “Even if this administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future, I am confident that our states, cities, and businesses will rise up and do even more to lead the way and help protect the unique planet we have for future generations.”  Former Vice President Joe Biden said he believed the move affected U.S. security.  Technically, however, the Paris Agreement does not require anything from the United States. In fact, it‘s not even a contract. It is a non-binding agreement between nations at all levels of prosperity and responsibility to bring about climate change in order to reduce domestic emissions. But to become a true member of the agreement – and regain the trust of the international community – the US needs to do much more than send a notification. All parties to the agreement must present new emissions targets – so-called Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) – before the next US…
