Paris Climate Agreement Ias Parliament

Piers Forster, director of the Priestley International Centre for Climate at the University of Leeds, called the decision to withdraw « a sad day for evidence-based policy » and expressed hope that some Americans, businesses and states would choose to decarbonize. Climate scientist Dave Reay, from the University of Edinburgh, said, « The United States is coming to the streets today. » The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) said in a statement by its president Antonio Busalacchi Jr. that the decision to withdraw « does not mean that climate change will disappear » and warned that « the increased potential for greenhouse gas emissions poses a significant threat to our communities, our businesses and the military. » The Foundation for Information Technology and Innovation called the decision to withdraw « very disheartening » and said it would reduce confidence in international efforts to combat climate change; The technology think tank called for federal efforts on « smart grid, energy storage, carbon capture and sequestration, as well as advanced nuclear and solar energy, » and warned, « Without a smart and aggressive clean energy innovation strategy, the world will not avoid the worst consequences of climate change. » [56] Trump`s exit from the Paris agreement will affect other countries by cutting financial assistance to the Green Climate Fund.
