WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the United States submitted a communication to the United Nations, in its capacity as depositary for the Paris Agreement, regarding the U.S. intent to withdraw from the Paris Agreement as soon as it is eligible to do so, consistent with the terms of the Agreement.

The U.S. Department of State said in the announcement made Friday that, as President Donald Trump indicated in his June 1 announcement and subsequently, “he is open to re-engaging in the Paris Agreement if the United States can identify terms that are more favorable to it, its businesses, its workers, its people, and its taxpayers.”

Also in the statement, the State Department said “the United States supports a balanced approach to climate policy that lowers emissions while promoting economic growth and ensuring energy security. We will continue to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions through innovation and technology breakthroughs, and work with other countries to help them access and use fossil fuels more cleanly and efficiently and deploy renewable and other clean energy sources, given the importance of energy access and security in many nationally determined contributions.”

The United States will continue to participate in international climate change negotiations and meetings, to protect U.S. interests and ensure all future policy options remain open to the administration. Such participation will include ongoing negotiations related to guidance for implementing the Paris Agreement.

It’s about time the government did something to help the U.S.A. Obama sold us out and Trump is saving us.

Trump saving us…hahahaha
Thanks for the laughs Kool-Aid drinker

You are just to damn dumb to know the difference.

Hahaha, You might want to look in the mirror fool.
But thanks for the daily laughs! It’s much appreciated

What a laugh. Someone as totally ignorant as you calling anyone else a fool!

The US under President Cheeto now joins Syria and only other similarly uninformed nations. BTW serving notice is nothing but political theater since our notice of intent to withdraw becomes effective in 4 years.
