Although the United States and Turkey are not parties to the agreement, as they have not indicated their intention to withdraw from the 1992 UNFCCC, they will continue to be required, as an “Annex 1” country under the UNFCCC, to end national communications and establish an annual inventory of greenhouse gases.  So if the obstructionists want to end up with me, we will make them non-obstructionists. We`re all going to sit down together, and we`re going to get back to the deal. And we will do it well, and we will not close our factories, and we will not lose our jobs. And we will meet with the Democrats and all the people who represent either the Paris agreement or something we can do, much better than the Paris agreement. And I think the people of our country will be delighted, and I think the people of the world will be delighted. But until we did, we came out of the agreement. We have one of the most frequent energy reserves in the world, enough to lift America`s poorest working people out of poverty. But as part of this agreement, we are effectively locking up these reserves and taking the great wealth of our nation – it is a great wealth, it is a phenomenal wealth.
Not so long ago, we had no idea that we had such wealth and that we were leaving millions and millions of families trapped in poverty and unemployment. Here`s a look at what the Paris agreement does, how it works and why it is so crucial to our future. While the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America, what it does, and the mines begin to open up. We have a big opening in two weeks. Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A grand opening of a brand new mine. It`s outrageous. This has not happened for many years. They asked me if I was going to leave. I will try. The goal of the agreement is to reduce global warming described in Article 2 and improve the implementation of the UNFCCC by: THE PRESIDENT: Thank you. (Applause) Thank you very much.
First of all, I would like to talk about the terrorist attack in Manila. We are monitoring the situation closely and I will continue to provide updates if anything happens during that time. But it`s really very sad what`s going on with terror all over the world. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved. Before I talk about the Paris Agreement, I would like to start by updating our enormous economic progress – absolutely enormous – since the day of the elections on 8 November. The economy is starting to come back, and very, very quickly. We have added $3.3 trillion in market value and more than $1 million in private sector jobs to our economy. The EU and its member states are individually responsible for ratifying the Paris Agreement. There was a strong preference for the EU and its 28 Member States to simultaneously table their ratification instruments to ensure that neither the EU nor its Member States commit to commitments that belong exclusively to the other and there was concern that there was a disagreement on each Member State`s share of the EU-wide reduction target. just as Britain`s vote to leave the EU could delay the Paris pact.  However, on 4 October 2016, the European Parliament approved the ratification of the Paris Agreement and the EU tabled its ratification instruments on 5 October 2016 with several EU Member States.  No responsible leader can bring workers – and people – of their country into this debilitating and enormous disadvantage.
The fact that the Paris Agreement is hampering the United States, while allowing some of the world`s largest polluters, should dispel any doubt as to why foreign lobbyists want to link and bind our great country to this agreement: it is about giving their country an economic advantage over the United States. That will not happen as long as I am president.
