No

The Paris Climate Agreement helps us secure the environmental well being of this planet. Withdrawing from this can, and will, put the United States out of a discussion that affects the entire planet. Perhaps, we could deliberate on environmental guidelines that are more fair to the United States, or more harsh on countries that are getting a lighter restrictions, like China and India.

 @9FBWDGZ from California agreed…9mos9MO

Since 1880, the global annual rate of temperature has increased just under 1 degree Celsius. I've found this information to be consistent in more than one source. The Paris Climate Agreement plans to take action to decrease the rising heat globally. However, if we withdraw, others will either join us and the world will get hotter. Or, we will become outcasted and ostracized for withdrawing. Besides, we're already in it, what is the argument to leave it?

 @9F82Y75 from California agreed…9mos9MO

While the Paris Climate Agreement is a non-binding structure provided by an international system, it is a structure nonetheless that prompts nations to proactively battle the detrimental effects of climate change. Per the UN Secretary General in 2022, climate change has already passed the point of no return, and it would be nonsensical for us to continue pursuing our path to destruction without a proper commitment.
As of 2023, climate change is no longer about returning Earth to its pristine state, but about reducing the damage dealt by our generation and our preceding generations so that our children and descendants may have a chance to thrive on Earth.

Yes

 @9F82Y75 from California disagreed…9mos9MO

By withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement and choosing to reduce our commitments to fighting climate change, we will be denying the right of future generations--our sons and daughters--to enjoy a clean and safe Earth.

 @9F94Z8K from Oregon disagreed…9mos9MO

The USA is a super power in the world and they're cooperation is important to help our environment and better our future.

 @9F86FDM from California disagreed…9mos9MO

The Paris Climate Agreement has been adopted by 196 Parties. Withdrawing from it may result in the United States not being able to deliberate on an issue that affects the entire planet.

 @9F7Z9LQ from California disagreed…9mos9MO

The earth is slowly dying and in order to have a stable life span, we must come up with a better climate for friendly living otherwise there will be no humanity.

Yes, until other countries are held to the same standards

 @9FKZBN4Women’s Equality from Wisconsin disagreed…9mos9MO

Make a deal with France that says each city in the agreement only has a certain amount of carbon emission they can use.

 @9FL4ZGZ from Tennessee disagreed…9mos9MO

Other countries are not emitting the same levels of Carbon Emissions as the United States. Developing countries have to catch up to the economies of the developed world which might mean temporarily heightened carbon emissions. But, the United States is a developed economy and must invest in sources of clean energy.

 @9FJCC5Z from Illinois disagreed…9mos9MO

The U.S. is a global leader in not only diplomacy- but in pollution. Regardless, The U.S. should be a model for the world because the less pollution the better.

 @8DGDGGV from New York answered…4yrs4Y

No! It is hurting the US that #45 pulled us out of the Paris Accord. The US needs to be in the Paris Accord, as it is a group of smart, caring nations who want to protect our environment. Right now glaciers are melting, there are wildfires in California, tropical storms are more frequent & are more dramatic. We need to work on this as a nation, and with other countries.

The problem is China, stop importing from china , until they clean up their act. It means nothing we can do in America can't overtake the damage being done by China.

 @ProgressiveXerus from New York commented…9mos9MO

You're spot on about the significant environmental impact China has as a manufacturing hub. But, it's a bit like saying, "Why should I tidy my room if my brother’s room is a mess?" Every country has a role to play. The Paris Agreement is about all countries collectively stepping up. So, should we order China to clean their room? Absolutely. But we also gotta make sure our room is **** and span too!

 @942WP5GDemocratfrom Guam answered…2yrs2Y

Yes, but the US should make an effort to decrease their own carbon emissions in an economically sustainable way.

 @9NHS5NN from Texas answered…2wks2W

As long as it helps the environment and helps other countries that are suffering from environmental issues.

 @85QWNPG from Colorado answered…2yrs2Y

No, we should work with our allies to make a more comprehensive measure for keeping countries within the agreement on track to eliminate 50% or more of their polluting co2 by 2030.

No, all countries should be held accountable for their emissions and help combat climate change

 @93HKL6Z from Arizona answered…2yrs2Y

 @8TZDJ75 from New York answered…3yrs3Y

No, but other countries should be held to the same standards if we really want to make positive change.
