Who Is At Risk Of Climate Change?
The United States happens to be one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases together with China and India but the others have surpassed the United States to become the world leaders in renewable energy. Earlier this year, China completed the world’s largest solar farm and is currently aiming to stop the manufacture and sale of petrol and diesel vehicles. All these happened before the President of the United States, Donald Trump, withdrew the country from the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.
It is not a surprise that major American businesses like Apple, Microsoft, Walmart, Coca-Cola, Exxon, Google, and GE, opposed the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement. These businesses understand that growth of clean energy jobs has toppled fossil fuel jobs. 1 in 50 new jobs in the U.S. is accounted for by solar while wind turbine technician is the single fastest-growing job. There is so much at stake that ‘doing nothing’ in the fight against climate change is not an option.
Creating a National Green Bank gives America the chance to reclaim leadership in renewable energy as well as create a cleaner, brighter future for the young generation.
