    From the NYT: Trump Serves Notice to Quit Paris Climate Agreement - excerpt:
    Yes, and my anger is personal. A very small percentage of that pollution you-plural are collectively generating in the US floats eastward due to the prevailing winds.To Europe!

    But, who cares? Well, that's why any nation run competently signed the Paris Climate Change Accord!

    I, for one, am totally convinced the Donald Dork has in mind those poh-boy West Virginia miners who voted massively for him. Another four-years - that thought possesses him because he wants desperately to win the next election and show the world how everybody else got it wrong, wrong, wrong.

    My Point? How can so many countries be wrong? From here:

    Trump Officially Pulls Out of ‘Disastrous’ Paris Agreement.

    The only way this story could be better is if Trump had also announced the formation of, say, “The Winners’ Agreement,” whose membership is limited to countries that actually lived up to their Paris Agreement commitments.

    As a percentage of GDP, we are one of the cleanest producers in the world, but pollution does blow East, from China to us.

    The disastrous Paris Agreement is climatically meaningless because the deal guarantees that China will produce the lion's share of carbon dioxide emissions for the foreseeable future, and all the Chinese garbage will blow all over the US, but, I guess that's no big deal to you! Since 2005 U.S. carbon dioxide emissions have dropped more than those from any other large industrialized nation, not that Carbon Dioxide emissions are a concern.
    Why sure, you all applaud signing a piece of paper, why don't you clean up your environment instead, and for heaven's sake, plant some damn trees!

    "This is great news. Trump set the United States on the road to energy independence with his regulatory reforms. Now he is boosting U.S. sovereignty and putting Americans first by withdrawing us from the Paris climate agreement, which was nothing more than an attempt by the global elites to control free economic choices by directing energy usage," ​

    In one of the most embarrassing examples, alarmists predicted that The Maldives Islands in the Indian Ocean would sink beneath the waves in 2018 — and the islands are still there. In fact, they have actually grown in recent years!

    By pulling out of the Paris Agreement, Trump is defending America's national sovereignty and economic growth. The president is right on this issue.

    We are the ONLY developed nation that met our reduction standards under the accord.

    Greenies are coming for your inhaler. No, really. They are.
