Let's get real.
Much of production as well as the mining of environmental harmful resources had now been OUTSOURCED to poor nations, under the financial partnerships
and lucrative shares held by rich and tech advanced western PRIVATE entities.
To sign that deal would mean once again americans be made to socialise debts of the rich while the rich overseas privatise profits, along with their
3rd world partners who don't give a damn to their own people except their own wallets.
USA will always help poor nations, as it had done since its founding, more than any other nation on Earth.
Americans, like any other civilised human, have no wish to take others for granted, nor had it done so. HOWEVER, it does not wish to be taken for
granted by others as well.
If others are not happy with this american stance, all I can say is 'deal with it'. The time for sponging off americans is over. High time other
nations LOOK into their own actions and take responsibilities for them, instead of blaming others.
It is hubric for mankind to think that it can affect global climate change. Whatever mankind does, it only contributes to a negligible est. 5% of
TOTAL CLIMATE CHANGE.
More critically is for mankind to acknowledge that climate change had happened, and IS NOT an act of man, but by nature. And to find ways to ADAPT to
such changes as our ancestors had with the many climate changes that had happened since the dawn of civilisation.
Adaptation such as sensors and monitoring equipment for early warnings on weather patterns that disrupt agriculture industrys and population
evacuations, better and faster medical products/services to deal with the change, weather resistance crops and industrial outputs, govt honest
regulation of industrial wastes, laymen to deal intelligently with the changes programmes, etc, etc.
As said, let's get real and deal with realities, and not fantasy blame games. Every national leader is responsible for their own citizens, and not
hope for largesse to be fritted away corruptively as done in the past.
