During an interview with Fox and Friends, EPA chief Scott Pruitt said that the United States needs to “exit” the Paris Climate Change Agreement that was signed by former president Barack Obama this past November after the 2016 election. In his interview Pruitt said that “Paris [agreement] is something that we need to really look at closely. It’s something we need to exit in my opinion. It’s a bad deal for America. It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach. China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030. We front-loaded all of our costs.”
The comments that were made by Pruitt’s comments likely increases the fact that he United States will finally decide to pull out of the Paris agreement. This so-called agreement that was brought about by the fake narrative of climate change requires governments t present national plans to reduce emissions to limit global temperature rise, it will also require a regular report on the countries progress.
In his presidential campaign, Donald Trump was very critical of the Paris deal and also promised to cancel it all together. Just this past week Trump refused to a sign a statement endorsing the agreement. While President Trump can not pull the United States out of the agreement instantaneously, he can initiate the process for the United States to fully exit the agreement.
From the first day of taking the office of President of The United States, Donald trump has reversed several of Barack Obama’s climate demands including the revitalization of the coal industry and the focus on energy independence. In the first White House budget proposed by President Trump their were a 31 percent cut to EPA’s overall budget.
It has been reported that members of Trump’s senior team were divided on pulling out of the Paris agreement. Trump is also being advised by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his daughter Ivanka not to pull out of the Paris deal over the concerns that it may upset some of the United States major allies.
