This is a good thing. Let's hope President Trump does not fall for another "Paris agreement" that will only favor the rich.
Here it is again what the whole "Anthropogenic Climate Change" hoax is all about for those who don't understand what is happening.
EPA Chief concedes climate rule; it's about 'reinventing a global economy'
The most these "austerity measures, similar to those of Venezuela, would have done to "solve climate change" is to lower temperatures "at best" 0.01C. Nature lowers and raises temperatures more than that.
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history,” Christiana Figueres, who heads up the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the, at least, 150 years, since the industrial revolution,” Figueres said.

Christiana Figueres, who heads up the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change
Leaving the Pointless Paris Agreement doesn't do much in of itself. Trump has got to pull the US out of the UN's Framework on Climate Change Convention!!
First on the wishlist is axing the Paris deal.
Second is a call to “defund” the UN’s climate body (UNFCCC), which receives around US$4 million a year from the US government.
Third, Trump should “overturn” Obama’s clean power plan, which regulates power plant emissions, underpinned by a 2009 court ruling that said greenhouse gas emissions endanger public health.
Fourth, the US should amend the Clean Air Act – which was used by lawmakers to regulate CO2 – to ensure it can no longer do so.
Fifth, Trump should repeal the Clean Power Plan’s CO2 standards for power plants.
Sixth, Trump and Congress should oppose all carbon taxes (Note: incoming US secretary of state Rex Tillerson is a fan of a revenue neutral carbon tax).
Seventh, Trump should scrap US calculations of what the “social cost of carbon” could be.
Eighth, freeze biofuel subsidies, a policy first deployed under George W Bush. The CEI recommends Congress should…
Ninth (this is the last one), the CEI says all scientific agencies must meet rigorous standards that they currently do not abide by, urging for new “weight of evidence” tests.
There could be feedback mechanisms that slow the heating, yes.

can the world get so hot that it realizes its getting hot, so it starts to form more ice to cool down?
Good riddance. Maybe we will actually renegotiate it instead of completely de-industrializing the first world.
