Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has offered to pay $15 million that would fund the United Nations that would compensate the loss that would take place after the US withdrew from the Paris climate agreement
The Paris climate agreement has around 195 countries contributed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and halt the cataclysmic climate change; that is why the United States should pay to contribute to the environmental issue.
America will remain in the Paris agreement
“Americans are not walking away from the Paris climate agreement,” Mr Bloomberg said on Thursday, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Just the opposite – we are forging ahead. Mayors, governors, and business leaders from both political parties are signing on to a statement of support that we will submit to the UN and together, we will reach the emission reduction goals the United States made in Paris in 2015
The billionaire philanthropist added: “Americans will honour and fulfil the Paris agreement by leading from the bottom up — and there isn’t anything Washington can do to stop us.”
America joins Nicaragua and Syria
Mr Trump announced on Thursday that he would pull the US out of the Paris agreement, even though the U.S. would is the world’s biggest second source of CO2 . After the withdrawal, the United Staes join other two countries would do not contribute to the agreement; the two countries are Nicaragua, which believes that the terms are not strict enough, and Syria, which plunged in a sanguineous conflict.
The New York Times published a letter from Mr Bloomberg to UN Secretary-General António Guterres in which Guterres said that Trump fell short of the duties he was expected to do as a president regarding the environment so U.S. government and society should work on preventing the climate change and design plans to promote issues of which Trump fell short.
Tesla chief executive Elon Musk and Disney CEO Bob Iger quit from the President’s council of economic advisors.
Apple, Google, Facebook, Amazon and Goldman Sachs have all also picked holes in Mr Trump’s decision.
