WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE PARIS ACCORD, aka THE PARIS AGREEMENT AND U.N. CLIMATE CHANGE FUND?

snippets from a November 29, 2016 post

CANCELING THE PARIS AGREEMENT AND U.N. CLIMATE CHANGE FUND

During a campaign speech in North Dakota in May, Trump told a cheering crowd, “WE’RE GOING TO CANCEL THE PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT AND STOP ALL PAYMENTS OF U.S. TAX DOLLARS TO U.N. GLOBAL WARMING PROGRAMS”

The agreement, however, was negotiated and ratified by the global community, so Trump cannot simply call it off. (So far, 193 countries have signed the accord, and 113 have ratified it). BUT TRUMP STILL HAS PERHAPS THE MOST POWER HERE TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON HIS PROMISE, COMPARED WITH HIS OTHER PLEDGES.

PRES. BARACK OBAMA UNILATERALLY RATIFIED THE PARIS ACCORD WITHOUT THE SENATE, AND TRUMP COULD WITHDRAW THE U.S. FROM THE AGREEMENT NEARLY AS EASILY BY SIGNING AN EXECUTIVE ORDER, even on his first day in office. Experts note that it will take the U.S. four years to fully back out of the agreement, due to the way it is structured: Under the Paris accord, any country that wants to leave must wait three years after the agreement takes force (which happened on Nov. 4) —and then there is an additional yearlong notice period. Yet “as a practical matter, the announcement and paperwork would have the effect of removing the U.S., setting it on a certain course for withdrawal,” says Scott Fulton, president of the Environmental Law Institute.

TRUMP WILL HAVE ANOTHER OPTION IF HE DOESN’T WANT TO WAIT FOUR YEARS: HE COULD PULL OUT OF THE U.N. FRAMEWORK CONVENTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE (UNFCCC) WITH AN EXECUTIVE ORDER, WHICH WOULD SIMULTANEOUSLY WITHDRAW THE U.S. FROM THE PARIS AGREEMENT. It would take only one year to complete, although it is viewed as a more drastic move. “It would be a very dramatic thing to withdraw from the UNFCCC,” Freeman says, “He could do it, but it would annoy an awful lot of our allies.” Trump, though, has recently appeared to soften his stance on the Paris accord. In a recent interview with the New York Times, he said he had “an open mind” about the agreement.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WILL ALSO HAVE THE CHOICE TO SIMPLY IGNORE U.S. EMISSION TARGETS UNDER THE PARIS AGREEMENT—the accord does not include any formal punishment for countries that do not meet their goals. Pulling out of one or any international treaties or ignoring their mandates would likely damage the U.S.’s relationship with the international community. Experts say that if the U.S. withdraws from the Paris accord, there could be diplomatic and economic repercussions—some countries, such as Mexico and Canada, are reportedly considering imposing a carbon tariff on U.S. products.

TRUMP HAS ALSO DECLARED THAT HE WANTS TO “CANCEL BILLIONS IN PAYMENTS TO U.N. CLIMATE CHANGE PROGRAMS AND USE THE MONEY TO FIX AMERICA’S WATER AND ENVIRONMENTAL INFRASTRUCTURE.” This funding is meant to provide support to developing countries so they can take action to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to climate change, something they probably could not afford otherwise.

UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION THE U.S. HAS COMMITTED TO GIVING $3 BILLION TO THE U.N. GREEN CLIMATE FUND, AND AS OF NOVEMBER 4, IT HAD ALREADY HANDED OVER $500 MILLION. WHEREAS TRUMP WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET THAT MONEY BACK, HE AND CONGRESS COULD WITHHOLD THE REMAINDER OF THOSE FUNDS FROM THE U.N.

“THE PROSPECT OF THAT MONEY HAS DIMMED, BECAUSE NEITHER TRUMP NOR CONGRESS IS PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN PROVIDING IT,” Freeman says. Although Trump has promised to cancel climate fund payments to the U.N. on his first day, it is more a matter of doing nothing over time—he and Congress simply would not designate any more money for the Green Climate Fund. As for reallocating the U.N. payments to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure, Trump would need Congressional buy in, as Congress determines how federal money is spent.

DONALD J. TRUMP IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

  1. 169 (101st): Global Change Research Act of 1990

The Global Change Research Act 1990 is a UNITED STATES LAW REQUIRING RESEARCH INTO GLOBAL WARMING AND RELATED ISSUES. It requires a report to Congress every four years on the environmental, economic, health and safety consequences of climate change.

The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is an interagency program, established by the Global Change Research Act (GCRA) of 1990, mandated by Congress to “assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and natural processes of global change”.

Since the USGCRP began, SCIENTIFIC UNDERSTANDING OF GLOBAL CHANGE has increased and the information needs of the nation have changed dramatically.

————————————————————————————

ACCORDING TO A SUMMARY BY THE CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE, THE ACT:

“DIRECTS THE PRESIDENT, through the Federal Coordinating Council on Science, Engineering, and Technology (Council), to establish the Committee on Earth and Environmental Sciences to carry out Council functions under specified provisions of the National Science and Technology Policy, Organization, and Priorities Act of 1976 relating to global change research, to increase the effectiveness and productivity of Federal global change research efforts.

DIRECTS THE PRESIDENT TO establish an interagency United States Global Change Research Program to improve understanding of global change. Requires the Chairman of the Council, through the Committee, to develop a National Global Change Research Plan for implementation of the Program. SETS FORTH REQUIRED PLAN CONTENTS AND RESEARCH ELEMENTS, INCLUDING THAT THE PLAN PROVIDE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR COLLABORATION WITHIN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND AMONG NATIONS.

Requires the Chairman to enter into an agreement with the National Research Council to: (1) evaluate the scientific content of the Plan; and (2) provide information and advice and recommended priorities for future global change research.

 Requires the Committee to provide general guidance each year to each Federal agency or department participating in the Program WITH RESPECT TO PREPARATION OF REQUESTS FOR APPROPRIATIONS RELATED TO THE PROGRAM.

REQUIRES the Council, at least every four years, through the Committee, to submit to the President and the Congress an assessment regarding THE FINDINGS OF THE PROGRAM AND ASSOCIATED UNCERTAINTIES, the effects of global change, and current and major long-term trends in global change.

REQUIRES that the research findings of the Committee and of Federal agencies and departments be made available TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY AND ALL FEDERAL AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENTS.

TITLE II: INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN GLOBAL CHANGE RESEARCH – INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN GLOBAL CHANGE RESEARCH ACT OF 1990 –

DECLARES THAT THE PRESIDENT should direct the Secretary of State to initiate discussions with other nations on:

(1) international agreements to coordinate global change research; and

(2) an international research protocol for cooperation on the development of energy technologies which have minimally adverse effects on the environment.

DIRECTS THE PRESIDENT to establish an Office of Global Change Research Information to disseminate to foreign governments and their citizens, businesses, and institutions scientific research useful in preventing, mitigating, or adapting to the effects of global change.

TITLE III: GROWTH DECISION AIDDirects the Secretary of Commerce to:

(1) conduct a study on the implications of growth and development on urban, suburban, and rural communities; and

(2) based on the study, produce a decision aid to assist State and local authorities in planning and managing growth and development while preserving community character.”

bottom line…

Global Change.gov Was mandated by Congress to “assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced natural RESPONSE TO global change”.

TODAY IS MAY 6, 2017
