"President Trump on Thursday...put the world on notice that no president can unilaterally commit this nation to such far-reaching agreements." 6/1/17, NY Post Editorial Board
June 2, 2017, "German car makers fear losing competitive edge after U.S. Paris exit," Reuters
powerful car industry said Europe would need to reassess its
environmental standards to remain competitive after the United States
said it would withdraw from the Paris climate pact.
Donald Trump said on Thursday he would withdraw the United States from
the landmark 2015 global agreement to fight climate change, drawing
anger and condemnation from world leaders and heads of industry."...
[Ed. note: No link to definition of
"climate change." No link to substantiate that agreement will "fight"
climate change. No substantiation for implication that climate needs to
be or can be globally fought. Nor mention of 2014 peer reviewed science that Northern and Southern hemispheres are completely separate climate systems, global policy and spending can't help. Excerpt: “This study reverses previous findings." 8/4/2014, "Climate change not so global," University of Queensland, Australia
"Scientists are calling for a better understanding of regional
climates, after research into New Zealand's glaciers has revealed climate change in the Northern Hemisphere does not directly affect the
climate in the Southern Hemisphere.
The University of Queensland study showed that future climate changes
may impact differently in the two hemispheres, meaning a generalised
global approach isn’t the solution to climate issues....“This study highlights the need to understand regional climate rather than a global one-size-fits-all.”"...

regrettable announcement by the USA makes it inevitable that Europe
must facilitate a cost efficient and economically feasible climate
policy to remain internationally competitive," Matthias Wissmann,
president of the German auto industry lobby group VDA, said in a
statement on Friday.
preservation of our competitive position is the precondition for
successful climate protection. This correlation is often
underestimated," Wissmann said, adding that the decision by the Unites
States was disappointing.
VDA said electricity and energy prices are already higher in Germany
than in the United States, putting Germany at a disadvantage.
The VDA represents carmakers including BMW (BMWG.DE), Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE), and Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler (DAIGn.DE).
VDA's warning comes as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, one of the
strongest advocates of the global pact to curb emissions of gases that
speed climate change, said there was no turning back from the 2015 Paris
climate agreement." "(Reporting by Edward Taylor; editing by Alexander Smith)"

entire US political class was fine with Obama's unilateral signing of
"let's steal from US taxpayers some more" under the guise of a global
climate plan. Because the US congress and political class have spent
decades loading up authority in the Executive branch, thus making the US
more like a dictatorship. It's easier to "get things done" that way,
you know, like China does. The entire US political class loves the multi-trillion dollar imaginary global warming industry. It permanently punishes, weakens, and demeans Americans, which is the definition of genocide. No
matter how much we pay, it can never be enough. We're permanently
guilty. Trump's opinion on the CO2 danger industry changed right after
he was elected. All of a sudden he was said to be "evolving" on the issue. It's very easy to sell out Americans. There isn't a dime behind putting America first. Every penny is invested in putting America last.
