Trump Just Said Some Truly Crazy Things During His Paris Exit Announcement

Trump Just Said Some Truly Crazy Things During His Paris Exit Announcement:

Trump said: “So we’re getting out, but we’ll start to negotiate, to see if we can make a deal that’s fair. If we can that’s great, if we can’t that’s fine.”

What he means: He’s essentially saying that it is irrelevant whether the US is in any climate change prevention agreement or not. This is the equivalent of saying: “I’m starving. If I get food, great. If not, who cares.”

Some SERIOUS shit that went down today, June 1st, 2017: Day 133

The Weather Channel is throwing major shade and I am here for it. 

Their homepage include articles titled: “So What Happens to Earth Now?“ “Still Don’t Care? Proof You Should”

“..and More Proof…”

“…and Even More Proof…”

“…Or the Imminent Collapse of a Key Ice Shelf…:”

“… Or Antarctica Turning Green…”

“… Or California’s Coast Disappearing into the Sea…”

It is as was feared. President Trump has withdrawn the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement. This is momentous. It is ominous. And it throws the future health of the planet into grave doubt. 

Some who are knowledgeable on this topic think the damage could be minimized by a renewed effort by the rest of the world, and action here at the state and local level as well as in the private sector. Others fear this could be a death knell for our global environment, as countries will shirk their responsibilities and the Paris deal will unravel. History will tell.

But whatever happens, this was a reckless and intemperate action. It is not based on science or reason. And it will not strengthen the United States. 

How will President Trump argue for his actions? Who really cares? The world is watching, future generations wait in judgement, and we have shirked our moral responsibility as a member of the world community. 

We can only hope that when we look back at this, it is seen as a nadir on our path back to sanity. Will this awaken voters, business interests, and reasonable politicians? We can only hope and vow to do our part.
