„I think they`re making their bets to see what kind of better deal they can get out of it, and they`re not really taking off.“ Many of the big auto and aviation companies had already invested billions in reducing emissions and were unlikely to change course. General Motors, the largest automaker in the United States, immediately pointed out, „Our stance on climate change has not changed. we are publicly committed to climate action“ and reaffirmed its support for various climate commitments. Analyst Rebecca Lindland also pointed out that automakers were not subject to any specific restrictions under the agreement and nothing had changed. Even as Trump eased other restrictions on the auto industry that allowed for the production of less environmentally friendly cars, those cars still had to meet the standards before they could be exported to other continents or even certain states. . . .
