President Donald Trump said Wednesday that the US could "conceivably go back in" the Paris climate agreement if a fairer deal was reached, though he gave no concrete sign that any such deal was being discussed at this stage.
Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Trump said his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the United States unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin. While the NDC legally remains in place until 2019, the Trump administration has already stopped implementation, and on June 1, 2017, announced that the US would pull out of the Paris agreement unless it could identify suitable terms for re-engagement. French President Emmanuel Macron in December a year ago said he was hopeful the United States would return to the accord.Commenting on the treaty, Trump said the accord would have taken away the US' "competitive edge".
Trump also suggested that America's target set in the NDC by 2025 put it at a disadvantage and would force businesses to close.
"So we could conceivably go back in", Trump said, without expanding on what would have to happen or change. Trump also said he wished the United States could use hydropower."One of the great assets of Norway is a thing called water", he said. Whereas as an example China, by 2030, they dont kick in until 2030. "Im not going to let that happen", Trump asserted.
A full USA pullout could jeopardise global efforts to limit average warming to under 2°Celsius over pre-Industrial Revolution levels. "You never miss up on a good opportunity with good environmental standards", she said. Experts say there is nothing in the Paris deal which bans specific types of fuels, nor are there any penalties.Also, the treaty takes a bottom-up approach, with each country making its own commitments towards reducing the release of greenhouse gas.
However the remarks came on the same day that Mr Trump dismissed the importance of renewable energy and said he was a "massive" supporter of oil. "I wish we would do some of that".
Having had his reaction to Trump's remarks made public by Durbin, Graham felt little need to confirm or deny the reports himself. Trump tweeted a denial, saying he used tough language at the immigration reform meeting, but not 'sh**hole'.
