It is far from clear how the Trump administration could actually "exit" the Paris agreement, assuming that the Pruitt line wins and the administration determines that it wants to.
That's a tack advanced in a letter to Trump, previously reported on by E&E News, by North Dakota Republican Rep. Kevin Cramer, who argued that "the US should present a new pledge that does no harm to our economy", one that would highlight "the importance of baseload power generation, including highly efficient and low emission coal-fired and nuclear power plants".
President Obama had pledged to the globalist community that America would reduce carbon emissions to almost 30 percent below 2005 levels within a decade.
Pruitt, a former Oklahoma attorney general with close ties to the state's oil and gas industry, has labeled the agreement a "bad deal" in the past but had not previously called for the United States to withdraw from the accord. Cohn and McMaster have not yet staked out a position in internal discussions at the White House, but they are also expected to argue for staying in the pact. But there is one table that USA diplomats could find themselves absent from this fall-the negotiating table at the next worldwide climate meeting in Bonn in May. Any diplomatic blowback from global allies would be short-lived, argues Chris Horner, a senior legal fellow with the Energy and Environment Legal Institute.
Major publicly traded coal companies such as Cloud Peak Energy Inc (CLD.N) and Peabody Energy Corp (BTU.N) confirmed to Reuters that they have told White House advisers it is in their interests for the United States to remain in the Paris agreement to ensure there was a global role for high-efficiency coal plants. The country said it expects such funding to create roughly 13 million jobs, reduce emissions of greenhouse gases responsible for global warming and lessen the smog that has long plagued Beijing and other Chinese cities.
