Indian minister hopes USA could rethink over decision on Paris deal


"The US President's statement on Paris agreement has come as a shock for us and the worldwide community".

After the president revealed last week that he intends to exit the agreement, several high-profile business leaders said they would end their advisory roles with Trump, in protest. Now that it's actually happened, what should those of us working in AD and the low-carbon sector more broadly make of it?

Trump announced last week he was withdrawing the USA from the Paris accord, saying it was bad for his country and its economy but kept the door open for a "new transaction" on terms that are fair to America. Together, we will remain actively engaged with the worldwide community as part of the global effort to hold warming to well below 2°C and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy that will benefit our security, prosperity, and health.

The world answers Trump by saying, "We believe in science, which tells us that the Earth's fragile ecosystem must be protected".

For those who have signed up, they joined mayors, governors and academics to declare that they will continue to support action meant to meet the requirements of the Paris Accord. "We've done a tremendous job compared to other countries, as far as cleaning things up", he says. We reduced our emissions.

Why has Trump's decision backfired so dramatically? To give strict response to the negative decision of Trump, they chose to take some effective initiative to eradicate it as soon as possible. It's also not impossible that Trump might change his mind, given that some of his closest advisors (not least his own daughter Ivanka) strongly support the US's involvement in the Agreement - Trump himself has left the door open by saying that he's willing to seek "better terms" for the United States being part of the deal.

The Trump administration's announcement undermines a key pillar in the fight against climate change and damages the world's ability to avoid the most risky and costly effects of climate change. We don't all have to be ugly Americans.

Bangladesh, being one of the most climate vulnerable countries, remains committed to the Paris Climate Agreement.
