    We knew this cretin was going to do it but now it's official.

    He says, we don't want to be laughed at any more. But NOW the laughter REALLY starts and the tears of frustration.

    It's also official: USA is now NOT the leader of the free world.
    That will pass I assume to those with the most money to burn like China.

    Thank God.
    Maybe we can see a return to actual science after such a long draught.

    I guess it's not truly ironic (just stupid) if you actually believe the crap you spew.

    Right. Actual science, in other words, that science that allows us to ignore all the signs of warming, that Delaware sized ice cap getting ready to calf off the northwest coast of Antarctica. The science that says EPA is no longer neccessary since big business is SO benign.

    Icebergs?

    Say it isn't so.

    Icebergs must be a result of man made global warming.

    Future history books, if there are any, may record our recent events as among the most impactful turning points in human history.

    It seems yet another issue where right wing ideologues, pandering as always to the uber wealthy, are far out of touch with the American People. When polled about the Paris Agreements last November, very few wished the US not to participate:

    2. Do you think the U.S. should participate in this agreement, or not participate? (n=1226; November, 2016)

    “Should participate” (67% )
    “Should not participate” (14% )
    “Don’t know” (19% )
    “Refused” (0% )

    From Gallup in March:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Record percentages of Americans are concerned about global warming, believe it is occurring, consider it a serious threat and say it is caused by human activity. All of these perceptions are up significantly from 2015.

    The dawn of the Age of the Great Culling has arrived.
    All that was needed was to elect Donald Duck as our president.
    For the first time I feel lucky that I have no grandchildren.

    So you were able to see the sarcasm, great.

    This Paris agreement means nothing. Do you really think China is going to change?

    Pollution does not honor country boundries. Polluted air makes it way out of Mexico to the US. Polluted water makes it way out of Canada into the US.

    When costs go up in the US, jobs go to Canada and Mexico.
