It's official, folks.

Seconds ago, from the Rose Garden...President announced that the U.S. will pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
President Trump feels it was a bad deal and will be bad for American jobs, the U.S. economy and will result in higher energy prices, while limiting the U.S. to act independently where it's own interests are concerned.

Always the great 'Deal-Maker'...today President Trump was a deal-breaker...but, Trump also announced a move to renegotiate a new deal which he considers more amenable to U.S. interests.
Time will tell.

As a major campaign promise...this was to be expected...and, today, President Trump made it official.
Obama signed the accord without U.S. Senate approval...and, today, President Trump, as he has done with so many of Obama's policies, rolled it back.

Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how the other 'signed on' nations react...but there will most certainly be a lot of negative international blow back.


On the flip side...NYC's Mayor DiBlasio announced that his city will remain in the pact.

What a utter moron.

Honestly this is just awful, utter crap.

Climate change denial at this level is total insanity, science is not a opinion, we are heading towards a climate disaster and Trump has just put the nail in the coffin.

I don't know about other countries but the left here is already losing it.

If Trump pulls the US out of the #ParisAgreement he will be committing a traitorous act of war against the American people. My statement:

I really want to not have the come across wrong, but do you and your side ever listen to anyone? You make a comment like climate change denial, like there is a majority that doesn't understand that the climate changes. I'd venture a guess that most on the other side know full well that the climate is changing as we are on the way out of an ice age. The debate lies in how much, if any, man's role in that is, and what, if anything, can be done about it. It's not settled by any means and needs lots of discussion and education all around. If you keep treating it like it's a political point and anyone who doesn't think like you is an idiot, you will continue to alienate those whom you need to come together on this SHOULD it be a real climate catastrophe.

Again, I respect you and don't wish to insult you.

To me holocaust denial and climate change denial are just as bad.

It amazes me how you guys not see how this just plays to the global elite.

Man made global warming is a scientific fact.

The only people who benefit from America pulling out of these accords are the global elite, the oil and gas conglomerates.

Actions followed by statements like this are cementing another 4 years in stone.

It's a bad decision internationally because countries have lost faith with USAs word. If USA developes a reputation of not honouring promises why make a deal in the first place.

Apart from countries international businesses like stability.

This is more cronyism for the President and his 1% pals to line their pockets and make the middle class and poor, have to tighten their belts while the rich get to loosen them. This man is a joke and he is completely clueless. He wonders why the majority of Americans can't stand him. He will be a one termed President without a doubt!
