Alterações Climáticas e A Nova Economia

«The United Nations predicts that the U.S. will lose jobs in the rapidly 
growing clean energy industry ― estimated to be worth $6 trillion by 2030 
― to Europe, India and China. Countries that tax emissions may put tariffs 
on American-made imports. And big companies that expect the U.S. will 
have to regulate carbon eventually are likely to see ditching the deal as 
only delaying the inevitable, while also sowing the sort of instability that 
investors don’t like.
Trump’s decision also defies the desires of many major corporate and fossil
fuel interests. Oil giants including Exxon Mobil Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell 
pleaded with the administration to stay in the deal, as did coal producers 
and corporate behemoths such as Walmart, General Mills and DuPont, 
all of which operate internationally.» @
