On Monday, the United States President Donald Trump once again criticized the “unfair, ineffective, and very, very expensive” Paris climate accord, during a speech on “America’s environmental leadership.”
In June 2017, President Trump has declared that the US was pulling out of the agreement with Paris, ended in 2015 with almost every country on the globe. The pact objected to limit global warming below 2 degrees Celsius.
During his speech at the White House, Trump said that “we want the cleanest air. We want crystal clean water. And that’s what we’re doing.”
Trump’s Administration has relieved environment regulations, and in 2018, the US President said that he did not believe in his government’s report warning of massive economic crisis if carbon emissions continued to feed constant climate change.
President Trump said, “We will defend the environment but we will also defend American sovereignty, American prosperity, and we will defend American jobs.”
Criticized what he termed “a relentless war on America energy” under the previous administration of former President Barack Obama, Donald Trump forcefully dismissed “radical plans” in the struggle against climate change, which “would not make the world cleaner,” added President Trump.
He has further promoted the use of fossil fuels and tried hard to undo more firm fuel standards for vehicles.
Reacting to Twitter posts, former Vice President Al Gore said Donald Trump “is refusing to see reality.”
The co-winner of 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, Gore is active on climate changes, claims “American voters aren’t fooled by the President’s attempt to cover up his failed environmental record.”
In October 2018, a landmark UN report has warned that time is nearer to avert disaster and avoiding global climate chaos will need an extraordinary transformation of society as well as world economy.
