I have studied it and you are completely ignoring the multiple posts where I stated it's useless posting information that's already been posted a million times before because you simply won't read it.

"I was elected to serve the interests of the citizens of Pittsburgh...NOT Paris."
- President Trump Rose Garden, 6/1/2017
Actions followed by statements like this are cementing another 4 years in stone.
In 100 or so years time (could be sooner) when crops are failing and people all over the world are dying of thirst.... I wonder if future generations will agree with you.
That's what pisses me off, some old dude in his 70s making theses kinds of moronic decisions when it's future generations that are going to suffer.
President announced that the U.S. will pull out of the Paris Climate Accord.
Why Trump’s decision to leave Paris accord hurts the US and the world
Editor’s note: President Donald Trump stunned the world on June 1 by announcing his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, a landmark global agreement to lower greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the harm from climate change. We’ve assembled a panel of academics and scientists to analyze what this dramatic move means for the planet, U.S. businesses and the world’s poor.
A race to the bottom to destroy the planet
Kevin Trenberth, Distinguished Senior Scientist, National Center for Atmospheric Research
The whole of the Paris Agreement is based upon goodwill: There are no punitive actions or means to enforce the agreement. The goodwill also includes the Green Climate Fund for transferring money from rich countries to developing countries for building resilience, mitigating and adapting to the effects of climate change. The U.S. has pledged US$3 billion and has delivered $1 billion but seems unlikely to add to that. That alone undermines a lot of the good will. And it will be a major sore point in all small island-states and developing countries, who have not caused the problem of global warming.
The U.S. leadership was essential in Paris. If the U.S. does not lead by example – and we have a moral and ethical responsibility to do so as the country that has contributed more than any other to accumulated greenhouse gas emissions so far – then why should anyone else go along? Unless there is a universal carbon tax, fossil fuels appear to be the cheapest form of energy. That’s not true, of course, because of all the downstream effects on air quality and climate change.
Merkel: 'We have to protect Mother Earth' after Trump quits Paris accord
"The Paris agreement is a cornerstone of cooperation among the nations of this world. This agreement is indispensable. (…) What we started more than 20 years ago made a quantum leap in Paris and will be a success. The road will be rocky, but there is no turning back. To all those who care deeply about the future of our planet, I say: let us continue together on this path."
Merkel: 'Nothing can and will stop commitment to climate protection'
Merkel also highlighted the fact that several major US businesses had expressed their disagreement with Trump's decision, pledging to continue their commitments to the environment. The chancellor said she felt "enthused about how many companies, especially in the US, want to walk along this path with us."

Basically what it means, China and Asia will be meeting the demand for solar panels and wind turbines. The US will be left behind, drinking oil.
The poor always have to suffer first, you think they're white?
Even US oil majors reiterated their support for the endangered agreement.
