Trump Says US "Could Conceivably" Rejoin Paris Climate Accord

Trump Says US

Donald Trump has said America could "conceivably" return to the Paris climate change agreement in his strongest hint yet that he is considering a turnaround.

Analysts have said the USA withdrawal from the Paris agreement makes it more hard for the world to reach the goals that it set for itself in the Paris agreement.

When he announced last June he was pulling the United States out of the accord, Mr Trump said he wanted to negotiate a new "fair" deal that would not disadvantage USA businesses and workers.

Norway's leader says her country is committed to the Paris climate agreement and sees tremendous economic opportunities in the green economy. It put great penalties on us.

Trump announced previous year his intention to pull the USA out of the climate pact.

French President Emmanuel Macron in December said he would not agree to a renegotiation but was hopeful the United States would return to the accord.Analysts have said the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris agreement makes it more hard for the world to reach the goals that it set for itself in the Paris agreement.

Mr Trump, in his latest comments, stressed his administration's commitment to environmental issues, "clean water, clean air", but added "we also want businesses that can compete". "It took away a lot of our asset values", Trump said.

What is in the Paris climate deal?

A full United States pullout could jeopardize global efforts to limit average warming to under two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-Industrial Revolution levels.

The landmark agreement, which came into force last November, calls on countries to combat climate change and to accelerate and intensify the actions and investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future, and to adapt to the increasing impacts of climate change. Seated in the Oval Office, Trump notes that Norway has been a strong consumer of USA -built military equipment, including the F-35 aircraft.

Trump insisted that his administration feels very strongly about the environment. "And if we can't, that's fine", President Trump said in June 2017. "I'm not going to let that happen", Trump asserted.
