Today at three in the afternoon Washington time, Donald Trump will announce whether the United States will continue to be a part of the landmark Paris climate agreement, a historic international accord that every country on earth, except for two, has joined. The measure would limit greenhouse gas emissions to reverse the disastrous march toward ruinous and deadly climate change.

Trump has given every sign he will withdraw the United States from the agreement, placing it alongside Syria, another country that rejected the pact.

Environmentalists and major corporations have strongly supported the pact. The government of nearly every country on earth, including even North Korea, see it as an urgent necessity.

And 70 percent of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, support the Paris accord and agree that the United States should continue to be a signatory (details here).

Heavy polluters and their powerful lobbyists in Washington are pushing to exit the deal. They want to spew as much filth in the air as possible, the future of humanity be damned.

The night he was elected, Trump promised: "I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help" (source here).

Seventy percent of those Americans have said we must continue to support the Paris agreement. You couldn't get any better guidance and help than that.

Will Trump keep his election night promise? Or was that just another lie?


  1. Here is what I've put on another blog of a friend of Vermont.
    This guy is often putting religious comments so that's why I've finished with the religious sentence.

    ** USA are the second biggest polluter on the planet and by getting out of that historical accord will more jeopardise the most vital issue of ALL the planet.

    As a Canadian, I'm very afraid of "HIS" decisions because YOUR pollution, air and water, are coming straight our way.

    As "HE" is isolating more and more USA by removing USA from the Pacific Trade Pact and reconsidering the NAFTA accords, USA are going to go into 4 years of very, very, BAD times.

    What is to be seen, in that future, is ALL other countries will do the best, WITHOUT USA. USA will then be going on with a 19th century economic way of living and will be alone with those ancient theories and practice.

    The rest of the world will go ahead while USA will remain alone.
    The Trumpty Dumpty promises to «Make America Great Again» and promoting «God Jobs» for Americans will NEVER come thru because those jobs aren't based on the «New World Economy» going on new energies and new technologies putting ALL the world together.

    YOP! Isolating USA will «Make America Weaker» again, and again for next 4 years and more, IF it will not be too late after that.

    This is so «unbelievable» for a nation based on Christian values that are supposed to be based on LOVE, HOPE and CHARITY.

    GOD has to be merciful for USA to be so mean toward all the planet.**
