To no one’s great surprise, Mr. Trump just officially pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement. Rather than rage about what another moronic decision this is, made by our Dictator-In-Chief, I’d like to share part of the statement that President Obama released minutes after Mr. Truman’s announcement.
The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.
