U.S. Expected To Tell U.N. It Is Formally Withdrawing From Paris Climate Agreement On November 4th

So, expect meltdowns from climate cultists come next Monday

Formal U.S. Withdrawal from Paris Climate Agreement Looms

One week from today, President Trump gets his earliest opportunity to make good on his pledge to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.

The president made it clear last week that his plans had not changed, telling an audience in Pittsburgh that staying in the climate pact would have the effect of “shutting down” American energy companies while allowing foreign firms to “pollute with impunity” (Climatewire, Oct. 24).

It’s a message the president has offered many times since June 1, 2017, when he announced the U.S. withdrawal. Since then, observers have been anticipating the arrival of Nov. 4, 2019. It’s the first day permitted under the agreement’s rules when the United States can formally request an exit. That process will take one year.

“If everything is going according to plan, which I have every reason to believe it is, Nov. 4 is the day that the United States can officially begin the process of withdrawal, per the requirements of the agreement itself,” said Mandy Gunasekara, a former senior EPA official who now heads the Energy 45 Fund, a pro-Trump advocacy group.

The earliest the United States could leave the deal is Nov. 4, 2020, the day after the presidential election. That’s contingent on the United Nations’ receiving formal notice of withdrawal 365 days earlier. Every day that the United States delays giving that notice is one day longer that the Trump administration will remain in the climate pact.

It’s a long process to pull out of the agreement, but, Trump could have simply voided the whole thing with the stroke of a pen, since that’s the way Obama joined it. It was never ratified by the U.S. Congress. It is also non-binding. And leaving is almost symbolic, since we keep hearing that all the nations who signed on are failing to uphold their pledges.

If the United States leaves the Paris accord in November 2020, it is virtually assured to rejoin in early 2021 if a Democrat wins the presidency. That could be done with a single letter and a 30-day waiting period.

The so-called nationally determined contribution (NDC) to Paris that the Obama administration offered in 2015 could be reinstated through 2025 — though it’s likely Trump-era policies have eroded the country’s ability to cut emissions 26% to 28% by 2025, as promised.

There would be challenges ahead for a Democratic president. A new president would have no ability to deliver an updated NDC next year in Glasgow. So the United States would rejoin the agreement as a delinquent member that hadn’t fulfilled its obligation to abide by its timeline.

Even staying in that reduction wouldn’t happen, just like it is not happen in the other “polluting” nations in the 1st World. Further, what they really want from the U.S. is out money. The transfer of our wealth to 3rd world shitholes developing nations in a manner which puts the U.S. on the hook, not the nation that is being given monetary aid, as had been the norm.

Just wait for Monday. If the official declaration comes, Warmists will be taking lots of fossil fueled trips to protest, using their smartphones shipped using fossil fuels which use lots of energy to document.

    Just announced we nailed Baghdadi’s successor.

    Fake News hardest hit.

    There’s an even easier way: submit the agreement to the Senate for ratification, knowing that it would be rejected.

    Our previous President had the silly thing written so that it would not require congressional action, but that doesn’t mean our current President couldn’t so submit it. And you’d think that all of the left who are saying that the President can’t just Do Things without congressional approval would expose themselves as total hypocrites when they tried to save an agreement that ‘required’ only Barack Hussein Obama’s signature.
