    Out of Paris accords?

    Fingers crossed...looks like Trump will pull us out.

    He'd been cagey about it lately...appearing to waffle on his campaign promise, under pressure from Ivanka and some other of his admin people to stay in the agreement.

    It's a sh!t piece of work that Barry signed us up for...classic globalist wealth transfer mechanism and nothing more.

    You know, I wouldn't pull us out because technically were not in. Barry didn't want to be second guessed by the senate so they never gave consent. I'd just send it over to them and see if they want to complete the process.

    As long as we don't pullout of the Khitomer Accords. You know how moody Klingons can be.

    Well, I heard that various cities and states throughout the union are shouting their defiance, by defiantly saying they are going to defiantly stick to the terms of the agreement.







    Which I'm fairly certain is not a problem for anyone, including Trump and his supporters.

    Contrary to the leftist screeching and caterwauling, I don't think that Trump or any of his people are actually against clean air and water. Just the money-hemorrhage that is The Paris Accords. I don't remember any Executive Orders that were issued which forbids recycling, or active prevention of pollution, or any CO2 quotas that must be met.

    Wouldn't it be funny if Trump pulling out of the Accord causes people and businesses across the country to express their "defiance" by actively taking a more green approach to everything. And in 100 years Trump will be synonymous with environmentalism. In five hundred years, they'll have a 900 foot tall statue of the Titan/Martyr Trump in which stories say he rid the world of "Parris Akordd" (two D's for a double-dose of pollution) who looked like a Cavity Creep and contaminated everything he touched by turning it into CO2 and Mustard Gas.

    Nothing is going to change. We still have internal orgs monitoring the manufacturing, stack outputs, water quality, etc..... None of that will stop just because we're not conforming to a set of rules in a worldwide organization, much of which USA developed. Our internal quality controls will press on. USA was leading the way and cleaning up our act long before the rest of the world got on board.
