President Donald Trump declared Thursday he was pulling the U.S. from the landmark Paris climate agreement, striking a major blow to worldwide efforts to combat global warming and distancing the country from its closest allies abroad.

China and India, both repeatedly guilty of horrendous human rights abuses, should be serving U.S. excellence and paying us for our superior technologies. The United States has reduced its carbon footprint by 18% since 2000 and has developed technology, that could help other countries do similar. China, India and others have increased their carbon footprint. Yet, the Paris Accord pushed on America by Obama and costing America Two and One Half Trillion Dollars so far doesn't have Communist China do anything at all until 2030. Likewise, India doesn't have to do anything at all until they are paid 2.5 Trillion US Dollars in foreign aid. Both China and India are allowed to build and operate additional hundreds of coal fired plants, while the U.S. industries, employment and economic health is actually punished. Obama signed onto the Accord because he is an anti-American Communist. The Paris Accord is Marxist led imposition of wealth redistribution from Americans and punishes us for being the most technologically and scientifically advanced culture on Earth. It is designed to hobble America, so that less intelligent, less capable nations can put their hand in our pockets and steal our wealth and technology.

Good move. This thing is far from settled science. It's more of a political issue. Politicians who favor government control of everything are generally in favor of it and politicians who want smaller government and more personal freedom are generally against the agreement. Staying in an agreement like that is like saying, yes, we're suckers. The American people are tired of pulling all the weight in NATO, The UN, The World Bank, The IMF and now the questionable theory on global warming. There are much more important things to address. Viva Trump, Sessions and Bannon.

So we have a reasonable and coherent explanation with facts explaining how the Paris Accord is a horrible deal for the U.S. that will depress our economy and lower the standard of living for the majority of Americans while providing little to no actual environmental value. Furthermore it is pointed out that the United States has not only done more than any other nation to reduce not only CO2 but all pollution while China, India and hundreds of other nations have maintained a total disregard for the environment and the heath of their own workers.
The response to that reasonable, coherent fact based argument is as usual grade school insults. Is it any wonder the losers lost the White House, The House, The Senate and 2/3 of the states.

Climate Change agreement is bad for America and its economy and it is worthless for America future in all aspects. Clearly, President Trump is right not to agree to the liberal-communist-Jihadist conspiracy of Democratic Party led by the corrupt liars Obama-Hillary-Kerry to trash the US Constitution and make America part of the global one world order. Undoubtedly, the Global Warming or Climate Change is a globalist-Jihadist movement for a new world order with no borders in which the UN is ruling the world with America becoming a piece of land open to all the Jihadist Mozlem Brothers and communists from the Middle East and all around the world to spread the wealth of the world to all. The political-scientific idea from British Universities based on samples from glaciers and claiming that Carbon Di-Oxide gas CO2 which was used for billion years to create plants with green leaves with water and sun rays energy is destroying the world in a greenhouse effect and could increase the temperature of the earth by 0.2+/-0.2 degrees centigrade in a hundred years is baseless and is a conspiracy by the communists and Jihadists to destroy America for spreading the wealth to the poor of the world. President Trump checked the theory with real scientists who proved that the Climate Change which is taught in American schools is a liberal Democrat propaganda and brainwashing of our young generation minds with lies for political Democratic Party influence and political power. The idea that liberal Democrats must save the world because people are ruining the world by using CO2 in breathing and in their cars is a conspiracy against the American people and more than half of America which is not brainwashed by the liberal media of CNN, ABC and others reject the lies of the communists and Jihadists who seek control of the new one government world.

Yup, theres a reckoning coming ..and when mother nature finally deals with humanity the earth will once again return to its beautiful balance. We're the plaque and Trump personifies the greedy, self centered capitalist who has no use for anything but himself and his billions.

Code talker is a complete idiot, no facts, or truth, just foolish rhetoric...ignorance is bliss. Coal jobs are not coming back and leaders in industry have tried to tell the moron that...moron listens to no one. The fool in the White House does not even understand the Paris agreement. The whole world now knows for sure that the Americans have been cheated and tricked into voting for a man that has grifted and lied his whole life and has not always gotten away with it...he did pay a $10 million dollar fine for laundering money...before I die, I hope to see him in prison for his crimes.

What a crock of manure you preach.

"Both China and India are allowed to build and operate additional hundreds of coal fired plants, while the U.S. industries, employment and economic health is actually punished."

"Mr. Trump said it "hamstrings the United States" and would cost jobs in a host of industries such as coal and steel."

In Mr. Trump's estimation, the Paris plan would result in 2.7 million lost American jobs lost by 2025,

Loser Donald Trump is a lying assclap clown.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy in a January report, solar has more than twice as many U.S. jobs than coal -- 374,000 versus 160,000.

Agreed to in 2015, with enthusiastic support from then-President Barack Obama, the deal committed signers to voluntarily reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in a bid to fight climate change.

25 large corporations took out full-page ads in newspapers urging Mr. Trump to stick with the climate pact. "By expanding markets for innovative clean technologies, the agreement generates jobs and economic growth,

Over the law 8 years, renewable energy energy has created 10 million jobs, 3 million in the US given those numbers and boost to the global and United States economy there's no rational reason for States and major metropolitan areas in America to follow Loser Donald Trump over a cliff.

In may the coal industry created 3,000 jobs across the country.

Loser Donald Trump is an absolute buffoon. It's become clear how he bankrupt 4 Atlantic City casinos and left hundreds of contractors holding an empty bag.

Donald Trump may be the the smartest, richest, most religious, the most powerful person on this planet....EVER or so he thinks...but there is one force that he cannot control and that is Mother Nature. I have a strong feeling that Trump along with every American are about to get a taste of God's wrath. Then we will see who is the most powerful.

Of course, Obama stated he would bankrupt the coal industry and run it out of business with heavy handed regulations, Paris Accord and blocking production.

President Obama bankrupt the coal industry by turning loose American oil drilling companies. The undoing of coal mining is r caused by fracking. tapping into massive reservoirs of national gas.

Natural gas pricing quickly made coal obsolete and electricity production cheaper. Now 33% of America's electricity is produced from power plants fired by gas. Another 10% of electricity is produced by renewables and that sector is growing and becoming more efficient every day in the US and abroad.

Americans aren't willing to resort backwards potentially compromising their health or the environment over the long term.

Yes, and this is probably a good thing as we fiddle with changing all sorts of rules but not with population control. When you watch your own babies die by your own greed, that is when it becomes real.
