Trump wants America to rejoin Paris climate agreement

Trump says US could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement

While he has "no problem" with the accord itself, he felt the agreement negotiated by the Obama administration treated the USA unfairly, he said.

"So we can conceivably go back in", added the president, who announced his intention to pull out of the 2015 accord on curbing global warming emissions last June. But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that's fair.

Mr Trump has claimed in the past that the agreement would cost the United States $3tn in lost GDP and 6.5 million jobs - while rival economies like China and India were treated more favourably. The US president has at times seemed torn between advisors like his daughter Ivanka, who advocate for policies that mitigate the effects of climate change, and aides who believe worldwide accords hold America back.

Analysts have said the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris agreement makes it more hard for the world to reach the goals that it set for itself in the Paris agreement.

"It put great penalties on us", he said about the agreement. "It took a lot of our asset values".

There is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties. While the Scandinavian country remains a major exporter of oil and gas, the Norwegian government was among the first to sign on to the landmark Paris climate deal, pledging to meet a 40 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

Despite being asked, Trump did not specify what changes were needed in the Paris deal to persuade him to keep the USA in.

The president emphasised that he is not going to let the Paris agreement deny the US competitive edge. We're not gonna let that happen.

In the end, should we believe Donald Trump actually believes the United States "could conceivably go back" to the Paris Climate Agreement? No.

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump told Solberg. It made it very hard for us to deal in terms of business.

While Solberg defended the Paris treaty, saying the Nordic country was "committed" to it, she did not publicly correct Trump's wrong statements.

New York City said the lawsuit against BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell would help fund protection against climate change.
