Why Is The Paris Climate Agreement Important

The Paris Agreement is the world`s first comprehensive climate agreement. [15] The Paris Agreement is a bridge between current policy and climate neutrality before the end of the century. 2. The United States is at the forefront of the fight against climate change. The United States is the world`s largest economy (and one of the largest contributors to climate change), but it has also been one of the strongest advocates for the fight against climate change. The United States accounts for about one-seventh of global emissions, but these oversized effects mean that the fight against climate change in the United States also has a huge impact on our global climate. In 2016, global emissions flattened for the third year in a row, despite the growth of the global economy, largely due to the fact that the world`s two largest economies – the United States and China – reduced their emissions while they were still growing their economies. The impact and influence of the United States on global climate change should not be underestimated and its role as a global leader in the fight against climate change should not be abandoned. President Obama was able to formally enshrine the United States in the agreement through executive measures because he did not impose new legal obligations on the country. The United States already has a number of instruments on the books, under laws already passed by Congress to reduce carbon pollution. The country officially joined the agreement in September 2016, after submitting its request for participation. The Paris Agreement was only able to enter into force after the formal accession of at least 55 nations representing at least 55% of global emissions. This happened on October 5, 2016 and the agreement came into force 30 days later, on November 4, 2016.

The authors of the agreement have set a withdrawal period that President Trump must follow – which prevents him from irreparably harming our climate.
