Saved the sovereignty of USA, says ‘proud’ Donald Trump on leaving Paris Climate Accord 30.6.2017 DNA: Opinion
US President Donald Trump strongly defended his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord, declaring he was "proud" of the move. "In order to protect American jobs, companies and workers, we've withdrawn the United States from the one-sided Paris Climate Accord," Trump said to applause, during a speech on the future of the US energy sector. "I will tell you we're proud of it," he said. "And when I go around, there are so many people that say thank you. You saved the sovereignty of our country." "And maybe we'll be back into it someday, but it will be on better terms," he vowed. "It will be on fair terms." Climate change has become a major bone of contention between the United States and its Western allies, and the issue is set to loom large when Trump meets Group of 20 leaders in Hamburg, Germany next week. German Chancellor Angela Merkel appeared headed for a collision course with Trump, vowing Thursday to seek a clear commitment to fight global warming from at the July 7-summit, and calling the ...

Massive Coal Mine Closer To Reality As Beloved Reef Crumbles To Climate Change 6.6.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
SYDNEY ― An Indian mining giant announced Tuesday the “official start” of a proposed $16 billion coal project in Australia that conservationists say threatens the  Great Barrier Reef . Adani Group chairman  Gautam Adani  said the company had approved its “ final investment decision ” regarding the controversial project in central Queensland. The  100-square-mile Carmichael mine  would produce millions of tons of the fossil fuel each year. It has faced severe backlash in the country from environmental groups who say the project would negate Australia’s pledges to limit greenhouse gas emissions and harm the environment ― particularly the  imperiled reef, located off the state’s coast. “We have been challenged by activists in the courts, in inner city streets, and even outside banks that have not even been approached to finance the project,” said Adani, who founded the energy company, at a press conference. “We are still facing activists. But we are committed to this project.” In recent months, Australian ...

Paris Climate Deal: World leaders express regret over US’ withdrawal 2.6.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
United States President Donald Trump on Thursday said he would withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change, drawing anger and condemnation from world leaders and heads of industry. Trump, tapping into the "America First" message he used when he was elected president last year, said the Paris accord would undermine the U.S. economy, cost U.S. jobs, weaken American national sovereignty and put the country at a permanent disadvantage to the other countries of the world. "We're getting out," Trump said at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden under sunny skies on a warm June day, fulfilling a major election campaign pledge. "We don't want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore. And they won't be," Trump said. My job as President is to do everything within my power to give America a level playing field. #AmericaFirst — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 1, 2017 "The same nations asking us to stay in the agreement are the countries that ...

US will withdraw from Paris climate accord: Donald Trump 2.6.2017 DNA: Money
President Donald Trump on Thursday said he will withdraw the United States from the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change, spurning pleas from U.S. allies and corporate leaders in an action that fulfilled a major campaign pledge. "We're getting out," Trump said at a ceremony in the White House Rose Garden in which he decried the Paris accord's "draconian" financial and economic burdens. "In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord," Trump said. But he added that the United States would begin negotiations to re-enter either the Paris accord or "a new transaction on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers." With Trump's action, the United States will walk away from nearly every nation in the world on one of the pressing global issues of the 21st century. The pullout will align the United States with Syria and Nicaragua as the world's only ...

Donald Trump has decided to pull US out of Paris climate deal- Report 31.5.2017 DNA: Top News
US President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, Axios news outlet reported on Wednesday, citing two unidentified sources with direct knowledge of the decision. Trump who has previously called global warming a hoax, refused to endorse the landmark climate change accord at a summit of the G7 group of wealthy nations on Saturday, saying he needed more time to decide. He then tweeted that he would make an announcement this week. Fox News also cited an unidentified source confirming the pullout. The accord, agreed on by nearly 200 countries in Paris in 2015, aims to limit planetary warming in part by slashing carbon dioxide and other emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. Under the pact, the United States committed to reducing its emissions by 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels by 2025. Axios said details of the pullout are being worked out by a team that includes EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. The choice is between a formal withdrawal that could take three years or ...
