Stephan Arcieri I am glad those 61 mayors will do so, that's 61 cities that will have economic hardships, making it easier for those who do not join in.  

Be prepared to be voted out.

June Schulte Several private industry advisors who were on his economic advisory team also resigned because of this poor decision, including Elon Musk and the Disney CEO. GE also read Trump the riot act. Companies are jumping ship on Trump. It's going to be a snowball effect and he will rue the day he didn't listen to actual climate experts.

Claudio Umesh Chief Seattle said to the President of USA, "this we know - the Earth does not belong to man - man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth - befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself".
The same message should be sent to Donald Trump. He should understand it.

Pletch Jon Their "facts" are that based on 150 years of temp readings humans cause everything.

How many years has the earth been here?

How many years have humans been here?

Before humans the earths climate changed many times. No matter what humans do or do not do, the earth will keep changing. No matter what we do or do not do, humans will not be on the earth forever. 

Spending billions we do not have, that will have no effect on anything, is a crime against this country's economy.

Cosme Alex
Cosme Alex If you're upset about the US dropping out of the Paris climate deal now's the time to take action. Take the pledge to fight back against climate change. Agree with others to no longer cool your house or apartment with air conditioning. Also, heat your home to only 55 degrees in the winter. Wear a down jacket if you get a chill. Don't heat your water either. Hot showers are a luxury the planet can't afford. Agree to no longer drive to work or to socialize. Instead walk or ride your bike. If you live too far away, move closer. And while you're at it, downsize your living space. There's no reason why 4 or 5 people can't live in a 500 square foot space. Many people do that around the globe. You'll adjust to the loss of privacy. If you really must drive sell your gas guzzling SUV and luxury cars and buy a high-mileage hybrid. If you're not driving a Prius you're violating a sacred trust with mother earth. Also, pledge to no longer fly anywhere on vacation or to visit family and friends. Definitely do not jet off to Coachella to take groovy selfies with strangers tripping on mushrooms. Also, agree to no longer buy fruits and vegetables that are shipped out-of-season or aren't grown locally. No more avocados for guacamole (you know that's cultural appropriation for most Americans anyway, so that's a twofer). No more salad in winter. No more tomatoes on veggie burgers. No more pineapple, mangoes, oranges, and dozens of other fruits and vegetables. But don't despair. Many root vegetables are an option. Contact me on how to build a root cellar in your new apartment. It's going to be a must-have. After all, you also agree refrigeration must go. The planet is at stake. Don't worry. We can all get through this together. Post your pledge below now!

Trena Jarnagin-Blackburn The Paris Accord is a poorly written deal that just takes billions from American taxpayers and redistributes it overseas. The key polluters, like China and India, are still given a greenlight to pollute under the Accord. Plus the deal takes jobs and energy development away from America. #AmericaFirst.

Dulckiney F Victor CNN would say that President Donald J. Trump was weak if he failed to deliver on what he promised in climate change polls, and that voters should move away from the Republican because no one could trust a traitor now that White House has confirmed what was promised in the campaign, CNN will accuse the Commander in Chief of something as always did, Obama has refused any climate security deals during almost every office at White House, only signed the agreements when he lost the race with Democrat nominee.

Peter Friedberg Year 2017.
“As a Dane living in Denmark also means I am a citizen in Europe
as Denmark is a part of Europe.
Europe is a part off this planet called earth which means I am also 
a citizen of this earth” This includes United States of America…

As a taxpayer in Denmark I pay around 46% income tax and that’s very high…
But I am willing to do so because:
I invest through tax in the people and the world around me…
I believe as many others, that many of the biggest problems and worries a citizen off the world have
today can only be solved when uniting with others nationally and internationally.

Dear American

If you believe that Climate change is real, please remember that no country
of this planet can build nationally boarders high enough to eliminate the possible threat.

All countries should try to do all what’s possible to make their specific country a fantastic place to live in and a slogan like “Making America Great again” is a fantastic goal and personally I hope you achieve
the greatness you hope for.

If you reading this, should be an American living in United States of America, it also means you are a citizen of this planet Earth, which also means that you and I both are neighbors of this planet.

You and I should unite and: Make the planet Earth great again.

Lots of love from a simple ADHD coach and social worker
from tiny Denmark

Stewart Geekie Will the left resist trumps pullout of the Paris agreement ?of course they will!!! Is climate change real?of course it is!!!! Is doing anything to reduce emissions going to help?not a dam bit!!! And WHY???
Because there are too many people on earth!!!earth can only sustain according to experts between 1to 3 billion people over centuries of time!!!we are now at close to 8 billion people devouring every resource on it!! All the think tanks and experts and governments and people of the world have to come up with a plan to reduce the earths population to at least 3 billion people in the next hundred years or there will be the extinction of man within the next 100 to 500 years according to experts!!and everyone can do whatever they want to curb climate change but unless there is a population correction within a hundred years or so,it won't matter one little bit because man will no longer be on the planet!!

Gary Spencer Summer Wouldn't life be grand if these climate liberals were better informed! If so, they would understand that the Paris Agreement is actually a New World Order document which requires the USA to pay 3 Billion Dollars plus to those less "fortunate" countries. 

Furthermore; the agreement calls for the costs associated within to be covered by "wealthy" countries (like the USA), while other countries will pay nothing. 

This all said; the Paris Agreement is a Socialist trick to redistribute wealth from the American taxpayer to other countries. This on top of the "aid" America already doles out! 

NOW... let's focus on getting this country out of the U.N., and it's Gun Treaty nonsense!
