    Just as I thought. If the U.S. hadn't backed out of this monstrosity, we would be one of the few countries complying with its terms. International agreements with no enforcement mechanism are as worthless as the paper they are written on.


    Following President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, a number of other nations have quietly begun ignoring the Paris energy goals, according to a new report out of Canada. According to Lawrence Solomon of Energy Probe, a Toronto-based environmental organization, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is one of the only signers of the Paris agreement who is actually abiding by the exacting demands of the accord.

    Ah yes, paid denier claims victory for those paying him. Nothing to see here, folks, just another steaming pile pinched off by the deniers.

    I did enjoy the soothing sounds of bed wetters wailing in the distance for a whole week after Trump walked away from this asinine bullshit.

    Your orange buddy fucked up the Paris accord.

    Other countries are saying if the US won't do shit, why should they.

    It is a LACK of leadership from the asshole Trump & I find it really stupid that you think it is a good thing.

    Why do you hate your children?

    What kind of real man would condemn their children & grandchildren to a more difficult future? I mean beside asswipes like you & Trump.

    America was the only reason everyone was in this "agreement". It was the benevolence of the American taxpayer that was going to support the economies of other nations, all while enjoying the exporting of American jobs and individual liberty.

    Obama should get into a debate with the GOP on what a great deal this was for America. He would look like a traitor.

    Every industrial nation was pitching in you stupid shit.

    At least, please, become informed instead of constantly make an ass out of you with every one of your posts.

    Can you even fucking think?

    The GOP doesn't believe in MMGW, they want their children to suffer a more difficult future.

    Write to Gore and DiCaprio et al and ask them why they burn more fuel and energy than almost everyone else. Dumbass.

    You know what, dumbfuck, we don't have to eliminate all emissions, we just need to reduce them.

    I've cut mine by over 50% & I still drive as far & my home is just as comfortable. I have never flown anywhere on vacation.

    Pull your head out of your retatrded fat ass once in a while & think about your children's future you stupid ignorant POS Trumpette.
