Newsclip®: [Technology] Trump would renegotiate landmark climate deal | Washington Examiner

"Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Tuesday he would renegotiate the Paris climate agreement, confirming many environmentalists' fears. Reuters quoted Trump as saying he was not a big fan of the landmark climate deal, and he would renegotiate it because it is unfair to the United States. The report said Trump believes the deal is biased in favor of China and other countries. Many environmentalists are concerned about what a Trump presidency would mean for President Obama's environmental legacy. A possible renegotiation of the Paris Agreement, the first-ever United Nations agreement on climate change, would be a major setback after years of work. The pact among 196 countries allows each of them, voluntarily, to set emissions reductions targets that will be reviewed every five years starting in 2023. The United States has pledged to cut its greenhouse gas emissions between 26-28 percent over 2005 levels by 2030.",
