President Joe Biden rejoins the Paris climate agreement: Taking the reins on climate change and gaining perspective

Lila Keeney, Contributor

One of the first things that President Joe Biden did in the Oval Office was an executive order to have the United States rejoin the Paris climate agreement, a great way to get a perspective on global warming. 

The U.S. officially withdrew from thinking about climate change and greenhouse gas emissions last year, when Donald Trump was president. Climate change has been a problem for awhile now and to have a president that really cares about climate change and making this world a better place, it brings light into the picture. Joining the Paris climate agreement does more than just help this world with taking control of global warming… we can help our neighboring countries. We are one of the richer countries, and now we can help some of the poorer countries, which are also bearing the climate change crisis. We can help reduce their emissions and adapt to the changing planet. 

The Paris climate agreement helps countries adapt to the ever-changing climate and world and also try to avoid dangerous climate change. The Paris climate agreement finally came up with something that 187 states plus the EU all agree on, taking charge on climate change. Helping other countries with adapting to climate change is a great way to look at new ideas on how we can get a hold on everything. As much as the agreement helps with climate change in general, it also helps economically. The Paris agreement can create jobs for those who don’t have them. In the agreement, we can meet with other countries and discuss their needs, in order to live a healthy and happy life. 

Now with Joe Biden as president and not Donald Trump, we finally have a president that actually believes that climate change is real. That was one of the problems with not getting a hand on climate change; our president didn’t think it was a thing.

Even if the Paris agreement isn’t enough to actually lower the global average temperature, it’s a start. Where we were in the past four years is nowhere close to where we are today, because we actually have something that could make some sort of change. The Paris agreement is the closest we can get to making a change in the world and letting the U.S. back into the agreement is more than nice after we left.
