Fox News: Trump declines to join world leaders at G7 in affirming Paris climate accord

President Trump on Saturday at the G-7 Summit in Italy declined to join six other leading nations in their pledge to uphold the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement.

The other six members of the G- 7 — Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom — reaffirmed their commitment to the agreement, signed by former President Barack Obama.

The group also said the U.S. is “not in a position to join consensus” on climate change.

Trump should have known this would come up at G7 so should have been prepared to do something other than procrastinate.

    Ironically the US has had a huge reduction in greenhouse gas emissions because of the other Green hatred, fracking. And one of the most progressive countries in to renewables is China.
    The Paris agreement will be just the next in a long line of virtue signalling back slapping window dressing sign here photo ops that everyone will cheat and manipulate on. If I was Trump I would just sign it and shove it in the bottom drawer like all the other leaders.

    He was prepared to withdraw from the Paris accord but he agreed to listen to the counter arguments instead. Terrible, isn’t it?

    • Or he wasn’t prepared to front up in person and say what he has long said he would do.

        Ivankele hasn’t told him what to do, yet. Very careless of her.

        Did he bring the fence or was it there waiting for him ?

    Its a scam and out of respect for hurt feelings didn’t tell the lead scammers to their faces to shove this load of UN bollocks where the sun don’t shine.

    Trump doesn’t have to do anything at all.

    He campaigned on a policy of making it a priority to create jobs in the USA.

    He also campaigned on a policy of choosing to ignore climate change scaremongering.

    He doesn’t owe anything to the other countries – if they are stupid enough to strangle their economies with CC regulations – well more power to them.

    That will only enhance the US economy – Trump owes allegiance to the voters that elected him not a bunch of socialist numpties from the G7

  5. If so why didn’t he say so at G7?

    Another ‘rightie’ myth being championed by Mr T; ‘more pollution equals more wealth !’

    I wonder which he would prefer; a glass of clean, clear water to drink or one full of chemical pollutants & toxic residues ? What a MORON
