United States could "go back in" Paris Agreement

Trump says US could 'go back in' to Paris climate agreement

United States could "go back in" Paris Agreement

Back in 2012, nearly three years before he declared that he was going to run for the White House, Mr Trump tweeted: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make USA manufacturing non-competitive". Trump pledged on the campaign trail to withdraw from the accord, which former President Barack Obama and the leaders of 194 other countries signed in 2015.

President Trump welcomed Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg on Wednesday, and, while promoting the growing defense relationship between the two nations, gushed about the delivery of a number of F-52 fighter jets to the Scandinavian nation.

Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Trump said his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the United States unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin.

Fjordbak says Norwegians are a famously frugal people, so we supposed they come to DFW to try to find out where all the money for the F-35 went.

He made that decision on 1 June 2017.

Isro sets 31 satellites into orbit
The total weight of all the satellites is estimated around 1323 kg, as per ISRO's official website. The final 28-hour countdown for the launch of 31 satellites began on Thursday at 5.29 a.m.

Trump's words may mean that his position was actually unchanged from a year ago.

In November 2011 he tweeted: "It snowed over 4 inches this past weekend in New York City. So much for Global Warming". The New York City officials noted that the lawsuits filed against the Royal Dutch Shell, Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, and BP would be of great help in funding the protection against the gruesome effects of global warming and climate change.

Standing alongside Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Trump presented himself as a champion of environmentalism. "We have strict regulations to meet our Paris targets, which means we have very strong policies for environment-friendly and climate-friendly technologies", she said. She added: "We would not deign to make comments as derogatory as that about any country that has any kind of socio-economic or other difficulties".

But he did suggest that he might consider returning to the deal, or a version of it. It had sought clarification from the United States envoy as to whether Botswana was on the list of African nations Trump would include in his slur, which the White House did not deny he made, "given that there are Botswana nationals residing in the USA".
