One of the most common questions people have about the military tattoo, as opposed to the others, is about why it has its name. It was a natural question, especially since people often think tattoos are military slang. Well, we here at The Military Tattoo Network have to say that while there is definitely military slang associated with military tattoos, it is not the primary purpose of those tattoos as in the past. Here is why!
The Trump administration is reportedly planning to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, which limits global carbon emissions, despite a pledge from President Trump during the presidential campaign to “cancel” the deal.
“The president is very strongly committed to ending the disaster being caused by carbon pollution,” Trump’s national economic advisor, Gary Cohn, who helped draft Trump’s plan to unravel the climate deal, said in Bloomberg News. “However, there’s no question that we have to continue to be very careful on what the cost benefit analysis is, whether it’s a good deal for our businesses, or whether it’s a bad deal for our environment.”
The decision could undermine the United States’ ability to negotiate future coal-mining deals internationally, as well as potentially help China to become a more aggressive climate leader. China is the world’s largest polluter and China and the United States have been trading coal and gasoline for years, and the Trump administration could choose to see this trade dynamic reversed.
The Trump administration is planning to take the U.S. out of its seat at the negotiating table for “legislation and support from the rest of the world on climate change” once it officially withdraws from the Paris accord on Thursday. The White House said the U.S. will continue to support the accord on the sidelines, and that the United States’ “leadership is critical to ensure success in bringing about meaningful climate action.” The decision to withdraw from Paris leaves the U.S. as the country that is the third largest producer of carbon dioxide, and China and India as the world’s largest polluters, as part of the global agreement. The United States has been a climate leader on the international stage for decades, but the withdrawal may send a message to the rest of the world that the U.S. is leaving the Paris accord in order to help the U.S. economy.
For months, former Obama officials, who had worked to keep the U.S. from withdrawing from Paris for its climate benefits, warned that withdrawing from the deal would hurt the U.
