Trump sabotaging US for Chinese exploit

The Greenpeace International has accused the President of United States, Mr. Donald Trump of sabotage, and paving the way for China to reap America the anticipated economic benefits from green revolution, reports ITRealms.

The organization, in its reaction to the June 1st withdrawal by America from the Paris Climate Change deal, follows President Trump’s pronouncement, saying it will only put US in jeopardy and provide China the lee way to exploit the economic benefits from America.

The Senior Global Policy Officer, at Greenpeace East Asia, Li Shuo told ITRealms that it will only put United States at an ugly edge.

“It will only corner the US and present China with an opportunity to reap the economic benefits of America’s withdrawal,” Shuo said.

The Global Policy Officer, also alleged that President Trump has taken his administration in the opposite direction against the rest of the world.

Stressing that this is coming on the recent Chinese cancellation of coal power plants and decried that Trump canceled climate action.

“Trump’s attempt to sabotage the global transition to a safer clean energy future would not succeed,” Shuo lamented.

For the Greenpeace Africa Executive Director, Njeri Kabeberi said, “Thursday, June 1st 2017 will be written in history as the day the US, under the administration of President Trump, turned its back on those who needed its leadership, ambition and compassion.

“The millions of people living on the African continent are on the frontlines of climate change, and it is critical that polluters are held accountable for the suffering and injustice global warming is already inflicting. Climate change impacts are already a daily reality, and action to stop catastrophic climate change cannot be delayed. Our global community will take action, and is already taking action, with or without the US government, and it is critical that major emitters like South Africa step up and take a leadership role.”

Equally, for the Greenpeace International Executive Director, Jennifer Morgan, “Withdrawing from the Paris Agreement will turn America from a global climate leader into a flat earth society of one. It is a morally-bankrupt decision that Trump will come to regret. Global climate action is not a legal or political debate; it is an inescapable obligation to protect people and the planet.

“Trump is surrendering US global leadership to real world leaders who are seizing the momentum to protect their country and the climate by transforming their economies to clean energy. We are witnessing a seismic shift in the global order as Europe, China and others lead the way forward.

“Almost 200 countries committed to climate action in Paris and only one has decided to withdraw. This is how far out of step Trump is with the rest of the world. It is the changing of the global guard - as the US bows out, world leaders, CEOs and people across the world can and are moving forward into the future.”
