US could "go back in" Paris Agreement

US could

In June, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the USA from the Paris agreement, making the country the only one that has pulled out of the accord.

"The Paris accord really would have taken away our competitive edge, and we are not going to let that happen", Trump said.

"The Paris Agreement as drawn and as we signed was very unfair to the United States".

"It put great penalties on us".

"Norway is combatting climate change - it's an important issue for us and we are committed to the Paris agreement", Solberg said during a joint news conference with Trump.

A full U.S. pullout could jeopardise global efforts to limit average warming to under 2 deg C over pre-Industrial Revolution levels.

The agreement entered into force in November 2016.

Trump denies he used vulgarity about Africa
Jeff Flake, who was briefed by Durbin and a fellow GOP Senator who attended the meeting, confirmed that version of events to CNN . "In the course of ( Trump's) comments , he said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist", the IL senator said Friday.

The US has appeared to be so far globally isolated on this issue, but Trump strongly defended his decision.

The U.S. pledged to reduce its carbon emissions between 26 and 28 percent by 2025 under the agreement, and Trump has consistently said it is a "bad deal" for Washington. Whereas as an example China, by 2030, they don't kick in until 2030.

I'm a Christian, a nerd, a geek, and I believe that we're pretty quickly directing planet-Earth into hell in a handbasket!

"The EPA and commissioners are very powerful in the sense that they want to have clean water, clean air - but we also want businesses that can compete".

"The Paris Accord really would have taken away our competitive edge".

The President also spoke about the increased cooperation between the two nations in the fields of trade and defense, saying, "I want to thank the people of Norway for their commitment to fair and reciprocal trade a word that you're going to hear more and more coming from this administration and it should have come from other administrations before me".
