The Paris accord was an agreement which placed the USA at a great disadvantage to other nations economically. While restrictions to our fuel and manufacturing enterprises were formed to stifle our position as an economic and political power in the global community;
nations which contributed to the climate issue didn’t set rules for themselves until decades later and yet they add more co2 to our planet than us. The President has not called for an end to saving the planet nor the further reduction of our footprint but he had called for a system which is fair to America while also making sure that we have the cleanest air and water possible. That’s a far cry from what others are accusing him of trying to do. I have written to President Trump urging him to create a committee which would work with the major polluter nations of the world to create a Treaty not just an agreement which would require adherence to certain standards in manufacturing and fuel production based on an equality for all nations based on their impact on the environment. Whether you call it climate change or climate warming; the reality is that the Paris Accord sought to diminish the leadership role of America but more than that it followed a vision and belief which I and many others adhere to which is that while we belong to the global community we are also a sovereign nation which has the responsibility to protect our people and nation while also providing leadership to the world. We have reduced our co2 levels by huge margins compared to other nations. Our President has pledged to continue in our efforts to do so but not while placing our nation at a disadvantage nor by giving up our leadership role to nations which show little respect for our planet or its people.
Therefore I call upon all Americans to stand up for our nation while upholding our pledge to provide the world with the expertise to accomplish what we have in cleaning up our environment and preserving our planet. And let us come to understand that loving one’s nation is not an act of hate.
The road to a cleaner and stable climate will best be paved smoothly by America as a leader working hand in hand with the community of nations assuming vital roles of cooperation which does not diminish one nation so that others may flourish.
God save the earth and God bless America.
