    Checking The Rump’s Facts On Climate

    Fact-checking Donald Trump's statement withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement

    Jon Greenberg, June 1, 2017 (PolitiFact)

    "President Donald Trump announced that the United States will withdraw from the Paris accord on climate change [that was signed by 195 countries and rejected only by Syria and Nicaraugua]…Trump said the deal puts the United States at a disadvantage…[The accord aimed to] keep the world’s temperature to just [a 1.5 degrees Celsius increase]…Each country set its own targets…By midcentury, the goal would be zero greenhouse gas emissions…President Barack Obama had pledged to reduce emissions by 26 percent to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025…Wealthy nations agreed to provide $100 billion a year to help developing countries move away from fossil fuels and use more renewable power supplies…

    ...Trump cited a number of negative statistics about the predicted economic impact from the climate deal, including a $3 trillion drop in gross domestic product, 6.5 million industrial sector jobs lost and 86 percent reduction in coal production, all by 2040…All of these statistics come from a March 2017 study, prepared by NERA Economic Consulting…[It] makes assumptions that gave several economics and environmental professors pause…

    …In January, China stopped construction of 103 new coal-fired plants. The move sidelined scores of projects where work had already begun and put 120 gigawatts of capacity on hold…Between the effects of an economic slowdown and an effort to move toward less-polluting sources, China has cut its use of coal three years in a row…[Experts say China’s carbon dioxide emissions appear to have peaked more than a decade ahead of its Paris Agreement commitment…

    ...Trump said he ‘was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris’ but…[Hillary] Clinton won almost 60 percent of the vote in Allegheny County, which includes Pittsburgh. The percentage was even higher in many precincts within the city of Pittsburgh itself…” click here for more
