Ordinary views on the Paris Accord

China🇨🇳 it is said has the highest carbon emissions worldwide followed by India🇮🇳. Thing is China manufactures products for nearly the rest of the world.

It is more than likely that over 50% of the products in the United States🇺🇸 got the MADE IN CHINA label; enough to tell and show us that the Green Fund that Immediate former President @barackobama committed $3Billion to as part of the #ParisAccord was not just for America but for the rest of the world 🌎.

Climate Change is real (look what’s happening to Antarctica🇦🇶)and if half of the world’s products are #MadeInChina it’s only logical that the world commits to the #ParisAgreement. Not that President Trump is against the cause of Climate Change initiative but he has mentioned he is concerned about the economic burden on the United States from the climate deal, so he says.
“Under the terms of the agreement, the United States cannot exit until Nov. 4, 2020 — the day after the next presidential election. That could make climate change a future campaign issue.”, read a New York Times report.

That said President @DonaldJTrump has made it clear from his campaign days that his predecessor’s commitment was in vain. His withdrawal from the #ParisAccord is one of the promises made to the citizens of the United States who trusted him with holding office of the most powerful man in the world (if we go by electoral college votes), in a bid to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain.
He has done what he said he would and therefore has delivered.

I think his withdrawal from this commitment also slightly withdraws America’s superiority of participation and control. With this withdrawal, China🇨🇳 gets more prominence, Germany🇩🇪 gains power and so do the rest of the G7 member states. And who knows, as the years go by China could be the most powerful country in the world. I mean it is the economic super power today.
Witnessing the U.S internal meltdown will be crazy. Interesting times we live in today …

Paris Accord to Africa

“African countries must raise up to $3 billion per year between 2016 and 2020. To ensure transparency, the climate deal calls for prospective financing information to be communicated every two years”, according to the second Africa Adaptation Gap Report of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
