The President's comments come after Thunberg hammered President Trump for leaving the Paris Climate Accord. The speech by the far-left climate activist was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
There are bipartisan bills in Congress that we could pass right now to ensure the United States remains a global leader in emissions reduction, economic productivity, and clean energy production, all at once.”
That’s what Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) said in September, calling on Democrats to work with Republicans on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to protect the environment and our economy.
The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative.
“We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause.
The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050.
Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
Human activities are behind the extinction crisis. Commercial agriculture, timber extraction, and infrastructure development are causing habitat loss and our reliance on fossil fuels is a major contributor to climate change.
Public corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Professors Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg published Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations last fall, arguing that businesses are locked in a cycle of exploiting the world's resources in ever more creative ways.
