President of the U.S., Donald Trump, is sending the U.S. energy manufacture “back to the history” with catastrophic choices to pull out from the Paris climate contract and to encourage the coal sector, a senior Vatican spokesperson said last week.
The head of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, said that Pope Francis was worried that any damage to the surroundings will be like a boomerang that will retort, particularly to poor people with ever aggravation results.
On June 1, 2017, Trump said that he was pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate contract signed by almost 195 nations, the first to force all countries to boundary the emissions of greenhouse gas, claiming he wished to make jobs in the fossil fuel industry of the U.S.
Trump said that contributing in the agreement might weaken the U.S. economy, weaken national sovereignty, wipe out jobs, and put his nation at an everlasting disadvantage.
“This is similar as going back in the history and not to see the upcoming results,” an Argentine similar as the pope, Sanchez Sorondo, told the media in an interview conducted on telephone. He said upcoming energy jobs will be in renewable energy, such as solar or wind power, as compared to coal.
“Pulling back from the Paris Contract is a tragedy for this nation (the U.S.) and also for the rest of the world,” he claimed, repeating the statements he made to an Italian newspaper prior to the announcement by Trump.
Various other leaders have articulated anger and disappointment at withdrawal of Trump and assured to go ahead with the Paris contract. Among them, Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, advised action to defend “Mother Earth”.
The 2015 Paris Contract targets to stage out emissions of greenhouse gas in this century to avoid the rise in standard temperatures to “well beneath” 3.6 Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius) above pre-industrial times.
The pope has advised Trump to be a negotiator and gave him an autographed copy of a 2015 encyclical related to the nature in the Vatican last month in a meeting. Sanchez Sorondo claimed that he isn’t aware if Trump had gone through the document or not.
