WHY THE US LEAVING THE PARIS AGREEMENT ISN’T THE END OF THE WORLD


I realize people are all over the map on this.  But  remember the deal requires only voluntary cutbacks, not requirement to meet, a US request. We can set whatever we want. Much of US business is already working on altering our energy future anyway – it is great business. Google, Tesla even the auto companies are looking at an altered vehicle future. So Paris is purely a world leadership issue that creates a demand for energy solutions among other things. A seat at the table means you can guide the future. “He who has the patents has the economy.” We had this throughout the 20th century with trains, cars, computers, space. If we cede leadership to china or someone else on world issues , how does that help us? We lose momentum that someone will pick up. Isolation has never worked for us in the past. Bigger, longer term issue guys. Patents = money for our future. And jobs.
