Poll: Paris Climate Accord

On Thursday, President Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Paris climate accord, and stated that he wants to negotiate a better deal for the United States. The Paris agreement  is a pact adopted by 196 countries (including the U.S. under President Obama) in December 2015,  to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the rise of global temperatures. Under the agreement, wealthy nations, including the United States, agreed to the collective goal of providing $100 billion a year to help developing countries move away from fossil fuels and use more renewable power supplies. 
Supporters of the President’s announcement agree that the deal was badly negotiated, hurting U.S. jobs, domestic energy production, and American sovereignty. Critics argue that the administration’s decision to abandon the agreement is a major blow to global efforts to combat climate change and weakens the U.S.’s leadership role on the international stage and among our allies.
