One reason why it makes perfect sense.

Why be part of a agreement that's only symbolic, that you truly don't intend to achieve?
The United States are the only serious country about NATO. Everyone else is only a symbolic partner in the alliance.

And here lies the difference between Trump and other political leaders.

He's not going to sugar coat it like the sensitive snowflakes are used too.
He's closer to a construction guy then a manipulative politician trying to pander

Trump just hobbled the Great Lakes treaty because it's a futard libtard snowflake thing.

Which countries are these ? And are they really reducing carbon or just fudging numbers ?

No that doesn't count . It was just reducing lead and sulphur in gasoline and heating our homes with NG instead of wood and coal . That has absolutely nothing to do with carbon and global warming . Yikes get with the program , don't you want a grant ?

Really? I thought he already pretty well had that title nailed down. And in record time as well. I doubt any presidency in the history of the US has gone into the Dumpster so quickly, except perhaps one:William Henry Harrison

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Henry_Harrison


Mind you it wasn't really Harrison's fault. 68 years was quite old in 1841. The Dumpster is almost 71. It gives us something to look forward to.

I was reading that the higher carbon, while not changing temp in a any way, has been great for the worlds' plant life over all:

it is after all, half the plant food molecule

Study Finds Plant Growth Surges as CO2 Levels Rise

liebarrels should know of what they eat


If the head line was truthfull it would read "rich industrialists want it all and will get it by starving off a billion or two people...the rest they will kill with war and disease"

No, it is the correct way to state that the US has been the world leader in dumping greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere for the last century or so. China by comparison has only been the top greenhouse gas producer for a decade.

What a cute way of bowing to China and allowing them to destroy the planet and get away with doing whatever they want.

No wonder why the US withdrew from this scam.

So, the U.S. has cut greenhouse emissions more than any other country. Most people would consider that a good thing. But there's always that group that would literally die before they'd say anything good about the U.S.

Enjoy Chinese hegemony.

I see it as all good. The world hates Trump and the U.S., we're tired of their whimpering. So the U.S. lowering its international profile is a good thing. I'm sure that, like Kent Brockman, Asia and Europe will welcome their new overlords.

Don't be silly. Canada has the same leadership it always had. The U.S.

I know, y'all like to profess your undying love and loyalty to the Shiny Hat, but c'mon, everybody knows whose bitch y'all are.
