Whatever the outcome of the election, the United States will always be „out of the conversation“ when Britain and the UN hold a climate summit on December 12, to mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement. Maintaining the agreement could also be serious obstacles for the United States when we begin to implement the restrictions on the abundant energy reserves of the United States, which we have very strongly initiated. It would have been unthinkable if an international agreement could have prevented the United States from conducting its own internal economic affairs, but that is the new reality we face if we do not leave the agreement or negotiate a much better deal. The Paris Agreement was drafted in 2015 to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change. Almost every country in the world. Of the 195 countries that signed the Paris Agreement, 189 have formally adopted it. Nicaragua and Syria initially withdrew their support for the pact, but both eventually agreed to the agreement. „The United States has been an important commitment to this first funding. If they never delivered, it was certainly an influence for us,“ said Carlos Fuller, chief climate negotiator for the Alliance of Small Island States, which represents 44 island and coastal countries in international climate talks. Piers Forster, director of the Priestley International Centre for Climate at the University of Leeds, called the decision to withdraw „a sad day for evidence-based policy“ and expressed hope that some Americans, businesses and states would choose to decarbonize. Climate scientist Dave Reay, from the University of Edinburgh, said, „The United States is coming to the streets today.“ The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) said in a statement by its president Antonio Busalacchi Jr.

that the decision to withdraw „does not mean that climate change will disappear“ and warned that „the increased potential for greenhouse gas emissions poses a significant threat to our communities, our businesses and the military.“ The Foundation for Information Technology and Innovation called the decision to withdraw „very disheartening“ and said it would reduce confidence in international efforts to combat climate change; The technology think tank called for federal efforts on „smart grid, energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration, as well as advanced nuclear and solar energy,“ and warned, „Without a smart and aggressive clean energy innovation strategy, the world will not avoid the worst consequences of climate change.“ [56] Prior to the Paris climate talks, President Obama`s negotiators wanted to ensure that it would take time for the United States to come to terms with a change of direction. Adapting to climate change is expensive, but there are also signs that it can be good for the economy.
