World population needs a bit of a culling one way or another. Too much greed and not enough love.

The Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus FRS (13 February 1766 – 29 December 1834)[1] was an English cleric and scholar, influential in the fields of political economy and demography.[2] Malthus himself used only his middle name Robert.[3]
In his book An Essay on the Principle of Population, Malthus observed that sooner or later, population growth is checked by famine and disease, leading to what is known as a Malthusian catastrophe. He wrote in opposition to the popular view in 18th-century Europe that saw society as improving and in principle as perfectible.[4] He thought that the dangers of population growth precluded progress towards a utopian society: "The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man".[5] As an Anglican cleric, Malthus saw this situation as divinely imposed to teach virtuous behaviour.[6] Malthus wrote:

That the increase of population is necessarily limited by the means of subsistence,
That population does invariably increase when the means of subsistence increase, and,
That the superior power of population is repressed by moral restraint, vice and misery.
[7]

Malthus placed the longer-term stability of the economy above short-term expediency. He criticized the Poor Laws,[8] and (alone among important contemporary economists) supported the Corn Laws, which introduced a system of taxes on British imports of wheat.[9] His views became influential, and controversial, across economic, political, social and scientific thought. Pioneers of evolutionary biology read him, notably Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace.[10][11] He remains a much-debated writer.



Found this out about traffic accidents in India and sort of shakes ones belief in humanity and evolution of life.

Trump on Paris accord: 'We're getting out'

Musk Makes Good on Pledge to Dump Trump Over Paris


Donald Trump is a smart dude. Chinese conspiracy has been shown up to be just that, an effort to trip America up and stop them being competitive by unnecessary taxes on industry.


But he was withering in his criticism of the pact, which he cast as a humiliating defeat for American workers that unfairly advantaged foreign countries.

"At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country?" Trump inquired during an afternoon event held in a sun-drenched Rose Garden.

"We want fair treatment," Trump said. "We don't want other countries and other leaders to laugh at us anymore."



I'm laughing now at that dork and just how gullible the yanks are to vote this numpty into office.

This moreover, damages US politically as going from World leader to rank along side the other two nations; Nicaragua and Syria who didn't sign agreement.

I can't wait to see one of his properties by the water front get flooded.

Poetic justice is on hold for now. Just wait for it.

Pat494 started this thread Mr Trump did not give a timescale on withdrawal. However, under the agreement, a nation seeking to leave the pact can only give notice three years after the date it entered into force - 16 November 2016.
The process of leaving then takes another year, meaning it would not be complete until just weeks after the US presidential election in 2020.

Maybe the pro Dump people will have seen the light by then and realise what a mistake their POTUS has made.
