Climate change has not been a priority for Republicans.
Trump made an excellent point when he said, “Paris isn’t underwater.”
If the US withdraws from the Paris Accords, it will mark a historical shift as we begin to see the decline of American power around the world and the rise of China. For whatever reason, Republicans don’t seem to care if the United States remains a world power or simply hand it off to any country with a progressive agenda.
By cutting ties, America would only see an anual loss of 15% in coal mining jobs instead of the 16% if the US stays in.
