The US President Donald trump will announce today its decision on the Paris climate agreement from which he, according to several sources, he intends to bring his country.
The announcement will be made at 15:00 on time of East coast USA (19:00 GMT) in the Rose garden, writing on Thursday, June 1, the world’s media and, in particular, the news Agency Reuters, citing a tweet to trump that ends with the words «let’s get America Back was greatness!»
The newspaper reminds that during the election campaign, trump criticized the document and called the theory of global warming in General, «fraud», the purpose of which is to weaken the American economy. It was supported by congressional Republicans previously voted for withdrawal from the Paris agreement.
The article said that this decision will increase the differences between US and allies: this document in 2015, was signed by 195 countries of the world, in the left side only Syria and Nicaragua.
The question remains of how the tramp will be released from the agreement – this theme is dedicated to the article of the columnist of the German newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau, Thomas Spange.
«In fact, he has three options first he can formally terminate the contract. It will be possible three years after its entry into force on 4 November 2016, i.e. this requires a year and the output will go to new elections of the President of the United States. Alternatively, trump may classify the agreement as a contract between States, and in this case you will need the approval of the Senate. With the dominance in the house Republican majority is not reached, but the President has no more obligation to protect the climate, according to American laws. The third option involves the US withdrawal from the UN framework Convention on climate change that became the basis for the Paris agreement» – this article quotes the website «Inopressa».
The Paris climate Convention entered into force on 4 November 2016. It is designed to replace the Kyoto Protocol, which expires in 2020. The Convention calls to prevent the increase in average temperature more than two degrees Celsius until the end of the XXI century. Unlike the Kyoto Protocol, the new agreement does not set emissions limits depending on the level of industrial development of different countries, and also leaves to the discretion of governments to determine national policy in this area.
