I would like the UK government to ensure that any US corporations wishing to benefit from any future UK/US trade deals are either corporately committed to delivering emissions targets contained within the Paris Climate Agreement, or are based within a US state that remains committed through legislation to doing the same.
Why is this important?
Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement could have devastating consequences for all of us. This short sighted move designed to protect the American economy by removing regulation related to emissions cannot be allowed to work. It is all of us who will pay the price, and we cannot allow US polluters to profit from this.
