United States Withdrawal From The Paris Agreement Impact
LNG exports increased by 53% between 2017 and 2018 and are expected to more than double by 2020 (Lester, 2019). The United States is encouraging the development of new gas infrastructure (LNG ports and pipelines) abroad to expand its export market (U.S. Trade and Development Agency, 2017). “We know that the UK and the EU, as well as the UN Secretary-General, are planning an event on 12 December, the fifth anniversary of the conclusion of negotiations on the Paris Agreement, where they will try to achieve more ambition,” said Andrew Light. Others say the U.S. withdrawal is due in part to the Obama administration`s inability to have the U.S. Senate ratify the Paris agreement. While he is credited with introducing the indictment into the agreement, some have criticized him for failing to implement lasting changes in the climate fight. Climate lawyer David Bookbinder wrote in Vox in 2017 that Obama`s climate change policy only began after his re-election, largely because he was afraid of the political consequences that might follow. In Donald Trump`s long catalogue of destructive things in the United States and the world, the withdrawal of the world`s main attempt to slow the effects of climate change must fall like the worst.  At present, according to experts, the collective NdCS of the Paris Agreement still does not amount to 2 degrees Celsius. Countries will then have the opportunity to increase their obligations under the Paris Agreement at the UN climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, in November 2021. Foreign coverage of Trump`s announcement was mostly unfavorable.
An executive for britain`s The Guardian newspaper said the decision would probably not prevent the growth of renewable energy and suggested that “a much more likely victim of Trump`s election is the US economy he claims to protect.”  The British newspaper The Independent noted in Trump`s withdrawal speech the “tension between myth and reality.”  The German tabloid Berliner Kurier headlined: “Earth to Trump: Fuck You!” (“Earth to Trump: Fuck You!”).   President Trump`s decision to step down does not necessarily mean that it will affect U.S. emissions, because there is no direct link, but would mean that the United States.
