    Although I supported Trump in many of his policies I can not support him in his climate policy. To withdraw from the Paris agreement will endanger many islands ,The Great Barrier Reef, cities like Miami. Venice and Manila parts of which are below sea level. Climate warming will devastate many undeveloped countries .
    It is hope that the rest of the world continues with the Paris agreement.

    They will, and the fool Trump will eventually go along with it since he will have no choice. This act of his is all for show, and the placate his sheep since he has lost on virtually every other front.

    And as Trump demonstrates more, and more, just how much of an idiot he is intelligent people will take the lead, and he can follow:

    What warming ? Remember the pause ?
    All for reducing pollution but CO2 isn't a pollutant.

    Nobody has a shred of verifyable proof on that, have you? I think we've already done TGBR but I'm sure we can discuss some islands and as for Miami it might not be a bad thing..:)

    Yeah....I like Arnie he has a flair for the dramatic but unfortunately no good grip on reality.
    I thought that the only reason that the US signed the PCA was to smoothe passage of the TPP which is now a bust since it was withdrawn in January?
    PCA is a pile of shite based on flawed thinking and a planet/solar system that does what it likes.
    Mind you it makes the world leaders look good now that they can't have the Nelson Mandala phote on their desks... and....and they can raise mountains of lovely tax and say its all for our childrens benefit!
    Anyway wish the UK could come out as well

    Why? Nothing Trump said was true, as usual. Over 200 corporations have come out against it. Mayors, governors, the people, are all against it. The only ones I can find that even come close to supporting it are coal miners who haven't grasped to reality that their jobs are not coming back, and the alt right like Bannon, and Dog.

    Do some research, and no I am not going to do it for you again. Islands are flooding as is Key West Florida, and NYC. Pollution, and warming waters, are killing coral reefs around the world.

    But hey, that "might not be a bad thing", right?

    Cool! Thanks for the tip...(y)
    And your point is that the USA leaving PCA will solve all this?
    You're right it is but again are you saying the that the US leaving PCA will solve this?

    Because the PCA is a flawed concept based whacky transpositional trading mechanisms!

    BO pretty cranky that another of his boondoggles has gone belly up.
    Scotty likely on track with the interconnected aspects of other bad deals.
    I'm happy DJT is doing his best to do what he said he would do. Pretty refreshing. Hopefully a trend.

    I hope you are right!
    And I am glad to see that, at least 10 US States, to this day, have refused to obey by Trump's decision and will continue to work on the basis of the Paris agreement.

    You are so ridiculous. All you have to say is to rejoice in another one of President Obama being destroyed. . .in spite of the damage it does to your own country!

    You think that my hatred for Trump is ridiculous. . .look at your hatred for a man who has brought us so much forward and has been (and still is) admired in the world, while Trump insist in making a fool of himself among the world leaders and insist in taking America back to 1950!

    What a sad character you are. . .feeding on hatred, not on logic, not on facts, not on research, just on hatred.

    I feel sorry for you and those around you.

    Let's see some facts that CO2 makes any difference.
