With or without the United States of America, the fight for a better and "healthier" world will continue.
Almost everybody have heard about Trump's foolish move of pulling out from the Paris agreement. However, only less than 24 hours after announcing it, the reckless president might have come to his senses and tried to plead for renegotiation- but the European Union's not having it.
“Strong transatlantic ties are far more important and far more durable than the latest unfortunate decisions of the new administration,” EU President Donald Tusk said at the end of an EU-China summit in Brussels.
They have outright rejected his offer and decided to work directly with the US states and cities as well as the major corporations instead. (Sorry Mr. President, you've had your chance.)
“The decision of the United States to pull out of the Paris agreement is utterly regrettable, and that is me choosing very restrained language,” Angela Merkel, Germany’s Chancellor, said. “This is why it is necessary now after this announcement by the US administration yesterday evening, to turn our attention to the future.”
Focusing on the direct alliance with US governors, mayors and major companies' CEOs, EU have entirely cut out the White House (with utter conviction). They even specifically mentioned a possible closer work with Canada as this nation openly defied his decision. Other leaders of corporate America also had pleasing responses to this issue which shows the overwhelming isolation of Trump in the global arena. Moreover, despite the US's refusal to pay for the Green Climate Fund, China and the EU have vowed to uphold its help on poorer countries.
“The Paris agreement is here to stay. The 29 articles of this Paris agreement are not to be renegotiated. They are to be implemented. That’s what the EU will do,” Miguel Arias Cañete, the European commissioner for climate action said. “The fight against climate change cannot depend on the result of elections in one country of another. When a country signs an international agreement it has to fulfil its commitments. There will be new administrations. I’m pretty sure President Trump hasn’t read the articles of this treaty. There is nothing to renegotiate here.”
While Trump remains one of the most influential men in the world, saving this planet is still far more important than him and his decisions. Thankfully, other powerful leaders and entrepreneurs understood that and have bluntly condemned this idiotic political move.
