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.

"I believe there is a creator in God who is much bigger than us. And I'm confident that, if there's a real problem, he can take care of it."

—Rep. Tim Walberg on climate change


And that pretty much sums it all up right there. Except for those who see no point in doing anything about anything at all because they're waiting for the Rapture, which will be here any day now.

That's been a long time coming.

I'm sure the old methods are not exhausted yet, like wiping people off the face of the earth.

Rejecting the science of climate change is clearly dangerous and ridiculous.
If it gets out of control we are cooked like Venus and Dump's billions won't make any difference.
Don't burn our house down please.

Frequency of natural disaster increasing imo. Or is it just an illusionary false perception compared to the 70s, 80s and 90s???

:(



Letter to Donald Trump,

Don't be a dummy.

Paris agreement will bite you in the ass when California goes up in smoke again.

Make us great again soon, please sir (y)

At least, from what I hear so far, Trump hasn't tried to raise any scientific backing for his position. Because I suspect he can't and daren't try.

This suggests its just a money and power game, and that his objections will vanish if these objectives can be paid off. I just don't think it should be anyone outside the US who pays the bill. He's not president of anywhere else.

Yep agreed. One analyst on RT station really nailed it. She said Trump has gone on the easy vanity trail and totally lost the plot. Banning muslims and reapealling Obama Care were low priority. His won the election and his still pandering to his red neck supporters.

Missed opportunity she said to go for the tax cuts and infrastructure spending which really would have thrust US forward.

She commented he could then have the wall and medicare on slow back burner seeing them through.


But as we all know, DT is an absolute disaster much like our TM style of management.


I feel it's not too late for us to stop the madness and move away from these two disastrous politicians and so called populism tosh. :(

A further theory - Trump's apparent scepticism re global warming is a signal to his conservative Christian supporters. They are very sceptical, and their number includes Christian scientists (apparently there can be such a thing) who are perhaps the last qualified people to oppose the theory that global warming is man-made.

The biggest objection from conservatives stems from the fact that fixing all of this would cost money. In addition, evangelicals believe that the Rapture is just around the corner, so why bother? And it's all part of God's plan anyway.

:rolleyes:

Exactly. The evangelical movement isn't known or understood over there, maybe not in Europe either. It only clicked for me when I saw that the flat-earthers are committed Christians, not just potty elderly eccentrics.
