U.S. officially begins withdrawal from Paris Climate Accord

On Monday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the administration has officially started the process of withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord.

Within one year, the United States will be completely free of the burdensome agreement.

What They Won’t Tell You

Pompeo announced the move by stating, “President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement.”

Be prepared for a flood of statements from the media and Democrats on this issue. Every report you see will undoubtedly attack President Donald Trump. What they won’t tell you, however, is the United States does not need to be part of this agreement.

Trump himself blasted the media for fake news reports and sent out a series of tweets to set the record straight.

The fact of the matter is, however, that since 2005, the United States has led the way in reducing emissions, and it is not even close.

During that period, emissions here in the United States have been reduced by 770 million metric tons.

The next closest country is the United Kingdom, which has reduced its emissions by a mere 170 million metric tons.

Shattering the Democrat Narrative

One narrative Democrats constantly use to defend this agreement is that China will jump ahead of the United States in the clean energy sector.

What they won’t tell you is that during that same time period, China’s emissions have increased by almost four times as much as the U.S.’s have been reduced.

India, another country often mentioned in the green energy sector, has increased its emissions by 1 billion metric tons.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s statement made it clear the United States will not stop moving forward in the clean energy sector, but nor will we be held hostage by unfair agreements such as the Paris Climate Accord.
