    Now that's a bald faced lie. You know damn well Trump is going to eliminate EPA and make all of his industry buddies rich. Then he'll take his cut when his term as President is over.



    Or at least that's what Sappypus told me.

    All he did was say, "we're still not involved."
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.

    Saw this, this morning ...

    Part of it ...

    "World Leaders Move Forward On Climate Change, Without U.S.," the Times headline sneered.


    This would be an indictment of Trump's policies if it weren't entirely based on falsehoods and misrepresentations of what's really happening. Under the Paris agreement, the U.S. is supposed to slash greenhouse gas emissions — that is, carbon dioxide — by 28% below 2005 levels by 2025.


    Other nations have what sound like equally aggressive cuts to make, until you look at the details, and see what's really happening.


    As The New York Times itself noted in an article that ran just days before its article berating Trump, current plans call for at least 1,600 new coal-fired power plants around the world by 2025 — a 43% rise. China, which has been praised by many on the left for its climate "leadership," is building nearly half of those plants.


    Worse, individual countries, by using tricky and downright misleading pollution accounting, are making actual increases in CO2 output look like decreases— in the same way the U.S. Congress can call annual federal spending increases "cuts." So countries like Russia, China, Indonesia and India pledge major "cuts" of 20% and more in CO2, but in point of fact will actually be increasing their output of CO2 markedly.

    And Mr Macron said the US leader seemed open to reconsidering when they spoke during Mr Trump’s state visit to France last week.

    "He understood the sense of my approach, notably the link that exists between global warming and terrorism. He told me he would try to find a solution in the coming months," Mr Macron said, according to le Journal du Dimanche.

    The Times also reported that Mr Macron had said: "We talked in detail about what could enable him to come back into the Paris accords."

    Trump knows that the whole "agreement" will have completely unraveled after a while. The only real glue holding that suicide (for the US) pact together was US taxpayer dollars that were going to be given away.
