What You Need to Know About Trump's Exit From The Paris Climate Agreement. NOW ON VERITE PUBLISHED --- Obama, Trump, Leonardo DiCaprio, Elon Musk, Bernie Sanders, Paris Agreement, Climate Change, Global Warming, Obama Letter To Trump, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron, Politics, Feminism, News.A few months back, we can recall a slip of naiveté — a time just before the election of the now President Trump when the world tried to justify the possibility. For a moment many of us thought: maybe Trump is trolling these Republicans, and if elected will funnel efforts in the right direction. The ultimate manipulation, something we knew he was capable of. Our way of trying to make things orderly in our minds. However, the months have passed and Trump’s efforts to dissemble everything Obama built (in an almost obsessive manner) continue. The latest? On Thursday June 1st, Trump announced the United States will exit The Paris Climate Agreement and the U.N.’s Green Climate Fund.

What does this even mean?

Let’s start by what it even is. The Paris Climate Agreement was established in 2015 with strong efforts by former Pres. Obama to join its 195 participating nations in a common goal to combat climate change. Amongst these efforts is the Green Climate Fund which invests into low-emission and climate-resilient developments.
In choosing to remove the U.S. from the fight against global warming Trump only pushes his personal beliefs further, at the expense of our earth — he has publicly denounced the issue many times including calling global warming a “Chinese hoax” and saying “I believe in clean air… I don’t believe in climate change.”
He removes a huge power player in monetary, and organized efforts to forward this agreement. This leaves us in a place where each individual must take clean initiatives into their own hands. Organizations, and businesses able to push progress in funding these programs must now take responsibility where the government has failed.What You Need to Know About Trump's Exit From The Paris Climate Agreement.

The backlash has already rippled through social media, and even Obama has released an open letter speaking to the detriment this exit will bring. Other leaders such as Justin Trudeau, and Angela Markel have also added their feelings towards the tension-filled move.  Further the new French President has extended an offer to leading American scientists, and  its public to continue to join them in working towards a solution. Trump doesn’t just ruin this for American’s, but for all nations involved.

The kicker?

This exit won’t take full effect until the year 2020 when Trump will be up for re-election. It looks to us as if he’s already planting seeds he hopes will satiate his next campaign’s support from like-minded individuals.

What we can do…

Individually we can help fight back. We’ve all heard it before, but now more than ever it’s time to trade in accessibility for action. The biggest ways to aid are things like taking public transit, biking, or walking instead of driving. Car-pooling (hey, Uber and Lyft) can also help you do your part. Mainly we must not forget: His own ignorance is only going to harm us now. Further, educating ourselves – as always – is the first step to creating change!

It creeps up on us. Slow at first, but then all at once. The November 2016 Presidential Election is upon us. More than a dozen Republicans and a handful of Democrats announced they are in the running for their party’s 2016 nomination.
That being said…why should we care? Well, besides enthralling cocktail party debates, being a woman in the United States means we should all be fighting for the rights we deserve, knowledgeably of course. Inequality, prejudice, and biases are still in our midst, but we aren’t about to sit around playing victim. Despite these indisputable challenges we have faced, we have also had and continue to have many championings.
So, it’s time to learn up. You owe it to yourself. Here’s a crash course on who’s who of the 2016 Presidential race, & women’s rights – or at least the ones that have YOU in mind.
