Trump’s Climate Withdrawal Is An Impeachable Offense

These 22 senators wrote to Trump, asking him to pull out of the accord. The president and the senators put their own political and economic interests above the safety, security and indeed survival of the American people and the entire planet. The climate accord is a landmark deal, in which 195 countries responsible for 95 percent of carbon emissions worldwide agreed to voluntarily reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in order to slow down global warming. Under the pact, the Obama administration promised to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 26 percent to 29 percent lower than 2005 levels by 2025. But according to the Rhodium Group, Trump’s new policies will only cut emissions 15 percent to 19 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, considerably lower than the commitment made by the Obama administration […]

Paris Climate Agreement Could Create Jobs For Rural America

Based on news report coming out of Washington, it appears our county’s commitment to the landmark Paris climate agreement could be in question. It shouldn’t be. The Paris agreement is notable for many reasons, including recognition that every nation must contribute and every climate solution must be used, including techniques like carbon capture in forests that provide appealing “win-win” opportunities for our country. Given today’s politically polarized dialogue on climate change, it is no surprise that newly empowered conservative political leaders in Washington would re-examine this historic commitment that took effect last fall. After all, the new administration and Congress are scrutinizing federal policy on a number of issues subject to political conflict in recent years, such as immigration and health care. Yet, this re-evaluation of the Paris agreement could turn out to be positive for the longer term if done right. Our current political leaders will discover that the Paris agreement and the United States’ “Nationally Determined Contribution” under that agreement align well with many conservative principles for problem solving. For example, the Paris agreement:· Requires fast-growing nations like China to participate· Gives each nation flexibility to craft its own Nationally Determined Contribution, and leaves room for countries to refine and evolve their climate strategies over time· Recognizes the opportunity to capture carbon through forests, which could be leveraged to create jobs in rural areas in the U.S. and around the worldWhile all of these items are important to conservative principles, I want to focus on the last item—the potential role of forests in reducing carbon emissions—as a uniquely powerful opportunity to build consensus for climate action.If you’re wondering why forests are involved in an agreement to address climate change, let me explain how forests offer a powerful climate solution. Forests act like natural carbon scrubbers for our carbon emissions thanks to the process of photosynthesis, through which trees draw carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen. […]
