Many people seem to think that America going net-zero emissions would have little to no impact. This is blatantly untrue. America produces the second most emissions in the world, after China. This gives us an enormous impact. Also, our global goal is not to start reducing temperatures yet - what we need to do is stop heating up the Earth. At current rates, we have 12 years to stop global carbon emissions before the Earth is irreparably changed. Once we reach this point, not only will countless species suffer, but so will our FINANCES. Natural disasters have become more common in recent years -- that's because of climate change. If we don't stop destroying the Earth, our taxpayers will end up paying for it all.
