Feel Anger, Fear, Worry And Pity Over Trump Leaving The Paris Agreement - But Also Feel Hopeful

Rosie Rogers | Posted 02.06.2017 | UK Politics
Rosie Rogers

Last night as I watched Donald Trump pull out of the Paris Accord I found myself in a mix of emotions. Anger, fear, worry and pity for the those who will feel the effects of Trump's reckless decision. But, I am also hopeful. As Trump made his announcement, we saw the world's leaders condemn Trump's move and pledge to take further action to meet the global targets set out in the Paris Accord along with countless states in the USA and business leaders from Google to Apple. So again, it is Trump who is alone in his views, isolated and being left behind.

Little else will get a look in as whoever wins on June 8 attempts to unscramble an omelette decades in the making. Yet climate change doesn't give a damn about Brexit.

Trump is threatening to pull out of the Paris Agreement, a landmark commitment struck by nearly 200 nations aimed at limiting global warming to well below 2°C.

The beast of capitalism has slid under most noses for too long, but now it is exhibited within the White House for all to see. Trump and his team are not 'maniacs', the world has not 'gone mad'. No these people know exactly what they are doing, and they love such escapist labels. It is precisely us, civil society, that must stop them in their tracks with this loud and clear message: you may have ruled the world until now, but no longer.
