For heaven's sake, there is no 'left' in American politics. The democrats are a party of the right, the republicans are a party of the far right.
People really need to stop throwing this 'leftist' insult around, because it's utterly absurd.

- Doesn't regret vote at all
- Makes insecure looking defensive comments about it
I agree it sure is a freakin' shame about those Clinton supporters!! Ah but don't disparage you lovers of freedom. For when the left sends it's crybully snowflake army out and it comes for you, we will have friends ready to save our freedoms. Because the left has forgotten that taking guns away from the innocent citizens will not happen easily and someone, if not yourself, will stand up against that tyrannical future to defend the freedoms of mankind of all races, creeds and colors until this earth they depart.
Those loons not regretting voting for evil in the Democrat party will look back, if they become smart and understand the GOOD people of Earth approve of DJT because he dared to say "the emperor has no clothes". Very much like George Carlin did when he was pointing the tyrannical nutcases out in his comedy. OR if you were wrong about the R's you will realize why people said to the obvious haters of all things free that 'thou does protest too much".

Meanwhile in the EU and the rest of the world, those countries will be using public monies to further research and development into renewable energy technologies (even fusion) and leave the USA in the dust.

The OP claimed Trump isn't one of them (Bush/Clinton/Obama Globalists or the real "Powers That Be"). That seems to be two different groups. Who knows how many there actually are.
He proved it to you, OK, but pulling the US out of the Paris agreement doesn't actually prove that.
You went on and on about climate change being wrong but that is also neither here nor there.
Trump is an international businessman. No doubt well connected and running in circles that the average person is not a part of. He is obviously one of "them", even if "they" are not those others.

#1 Countries declare their own goals.
#2 It's not legally binding and there's no mechanism for enforcement.
#3 Countries update on their progress toward their goals and set new targets at 5 year intervals.
#4 It's a framework for international discussion/cooperation to reduce carbon emissions.
#5 The GCF isn't a product of the PA, it was established in 2010.
You're right that we don't need it to reduce our CO2 emissions. That's not what it's about.
Again, not legally-binding. More about taking a stand, making a commitment and using the weight of having pledged to do the thing to compel ourselves to live up to our word.
Withdrawing is part of an agenda that seeks to pull back from efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
Who estimates the 1.3 degree increase without human contribution? Where are you coming up with any of these figures? Spouting numbers without even a hint of attribution is a waste of your time and mine.
