What's your biggest concerns with America pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord?


The President announced today that America will pull out of the Paris Agreement; an agreement entered into by former President Obama without an action by Congress ratifying the action. Since then, the newswires have been ablaze with arguments on both sides of the issue. What's your main concerns in the short-run and long-run? What evidence can you present to support your thoughts? Scholars of the agreement have identified that other nations are allowed to build hundreds of coal plants while America is told to reduce ours - seems like a redistribution plan to me...

    If they follow through, penalizing the US by putting tariffs on our exports, it will lead to trade wars.

    Climate change is going through it's natural course. Pulling out was a good idea.

    Great comparison! Folks that are on statins can at least feel better because they THINK they're helping themselves. Global warming activists can at least feel better because they THINK they're doing something to stop global warming.

    That is news to me. How are European nations converting to green energy source at such high rate? And without nuclear power?

    I am skeptical. In the US, green energy, despite the tax incentives have not reached anywhere near the level projected. Some

    I agree. The Paris Accord is a multi Trillion dollar Global TAX. It also doesn't reduce carbon emissions, and there is no real proof that is a problem. It is more like the Statin drugs to reduce Cholesterol in the body, but the both gens it by itself

    How does a non-binding agreement stop technology from advancing? Unlike the Chinese, we have a Capitalistic economy where private companies are free to develop what they want - using their OWN money - that's really the crux of it, right, money?
