US Withdraws from Paris Agreement on Climate Change
US president Trump has announced yesterday that he will withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate agreement. European leaders immediately condemned the move and excluded the possibility of renegotiation.
Share CO2 emissions:
|Country||Global % CO2||Population in million|
Interesting to note how comparatively little energy the EU needs to generate a GDP comparable to that of the US and China and generate the following external exports (not counting inner trade):
|Entity||Export in trillion $|
|Entity||GDP (nominal) trillion $ (UN)|
|Entity||GDP (PPP) in trillion $ (CIA)|
The decision by Trump to cling on to fossil technologies, gives Europe the excellent opportunity to get a decisive head start over the US in all matters of energy production of the 21st century, with large geopolitical repercussions.
