I found a quote for you about Trump’s courageous exit from the Paris Accord:

“The main effect of Paris would be to transfer American wealth to Third World nations under the guise of global climate policy. Secondarily, it singles out the United States for punitive additional carbon dioxide reductions when we already lead the world in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Paris is not about reducing global carbon dioxide emissions, it is about creating a global bureaucracy that entrenches and validates increases in global carbon dioxide emissions while appealing to global leftists’ desire to blame and punish the United States for every conceivable global problem.”

“As recently as 2008, coal powered approximately half of U.S. electricity production. 2008 marked a turning point in U.S. electricity production, as technological advances in hydraulic fracturing (fracking) and directional drilling dramatically reduced the price of U.S. natural gas. As a result, coal powered less than 30 percent of U.S. electricity in 2016. …By contrast, China still has plans to build over 1,100 new power plants, increasing the number of Chinese power plants by 50 percent.
