Reintegrating it alone into the Paris Agreement will not solve these deficits, as CNN is voluntary and not legally binding. After setting emission targets with the international community, the heads of state or government of countries must act domestically to achieve them; The agreement will not be reached if the biggest culprits do not meet their obligations. Over the past four years, the progress of other nations has been different, but many leading emitters are far from meeting their goals, according to the Climate Action Tracker. China, for example, announced in September that it would stop releasing carbon dioxide before 2060, with emissions peaking before 2030. With this promise, China remains below the standard set by the Paris Agreement, which states that nations should no longer emit greenhouse gases by 2050. The European Union, which has promised to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels, is also likely to be lower. Sweden, Portugal and France achieved 77%, 66% and 65% of their 2020 targets respectively. Bulgaria, Ireland and Poland achieved only 26 per cent or less of their targets. You promised to put America at the forefront of everything you do, and you did it in different ways, from trade to national security, to protecting our borders, to the rights of Washington, D.C. And today, you put America first in terms of international agreements and the environment. Nations concluded the Paris climate agreement in 2015.

This agreement is not so much about climate as it is about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States. The rest of the world applauded when we signed the Paris Agreement — they went wild; they were so happy – for the simple reason that it put our country, the United States of America, which we all love, in a very, very great economic disadvantage. A cynic would say that the obvious reason for the economic competitors and their desire to stay in the agreement is that we continue to suffer this great self-inflicted economic injury. It would be very difficult to compete with other countries in other parts of the world. While the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America, what it does, and the mines begin to open up. We have a big opening in two weeks. Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A grand opening of a brand new mine. It`s outrageous.
This has not happened for many years. They asked me if I was going to leave. I will try. Although the agreement was signed in December 2015, the treaty did not enter into force until November 4, 2016, 30 days after ratification by at least 55 countries representing 55% of global emissions. The agreement is a massive redistribution of wealth from the United States to other countries. With a growth of 1%, renewable energy sources can meet part of our domestic demand, but with 3 or 4% growth that I expect, we need all forms of American energy available, or our country – (Applause) – will be seriously threatened by power cuts and power cuts, our businesses will often stop, and the American family will suffer the consequences in the form of lost jobs and a very low quality of life. As soon as the United States joins the agreement, the backlog of time lost will require new, more ambitious NPNs and a clear plan to achieve those goals.
