    Considering all the refugees Obama was letting in from Syria, sounds like that's exactly what was happening.

    Till The Boss came along. Bye refugees, bye failed climate accord.

    I think it's great that you and the rest of the Rethugs finally are admitting the countries you feel in league with are Nicaragua and Syria.

    The nice part is many red areas are low lying and Trumpkins will get flooded first. Good riddance!

    The refugees are still coming because the unconstitutional Muslim ban failed more times than a Tinks casino.

    That and "extreme vetting" never happened- it's a fictional concept to trick the extremely gullible and highly uneducated. As demonstrated, that trick works like a charm.

    Or triple. Endless supply maybe.

    Once this is done, the Obama error will be reduced to failed healthcare and arming Iran while spying on Americans.

    US military leaders say climate change is going to be our biggest national defense threat, but Trump knows more than the generals.

    Ok most countries in the world, most corporations (Exxon and BP), most parties worldwide, many in Trumps admin. The only ones against it are the minority of the Republican Party and ignorant folks.

    This will hurt our technology and energy exports. Shortsighted.

    I disagree. It will help. And the vast majority of countries that signed it have no skin in the game. Nothing is expected. As usual, the US is doing the heavy lifting, all on the American taxpayers back that the world at large benefits from.

    Entering an agreement where there is nothing but gain with no expectation is a no brainer for this countries. Using them as an example isn't a positive example as to why.

    Confused. I would have thought that the Cali away from the CE board would support the Paris Accord or anything that tries to protect the environment.

    What's hilarious about this thread is how the Trumplodytes were jizzing themselves, giving each other facials, over potential reactions from the left before anybody else responded.

    The goodness/badness of the news isn't what's important; it's how unhinged "liberals" will be that really matters. [roll]

    Clean energy and the technology that emanates from it have the potential to become the next economic boon to countries who embrace the concept. We are one generation or two generations away where the next "Google" and Microsoft" come out of countries like Germany, Great Britain and China.

    Trumpkins would have kicked computers to the curb to bring back the typewriter industry.

    I know only "kooks" read the Harvard Business Review but....

    "These examples make clear that the U.S. will need radical and disruptive innovation to reinvent its clean-tech economy. The U.S. doesn’t lack for technology; what it lacks is the imagination and capability to design the strategies and business models of tomorrow. Many emerging clean technologies, including batteries, fuel cells, distributed generation, point-of-use water treatment, and biomaterials, are disruptive to existing U.S. infrastructure and business models — and so policy inertia and entrenched incumbents can stifle them."

    I have to read up on exactly what will be the harm of pulling out of this but is it safe to assume we were doing a majority of the heavy lifting with agreement? Spending the most money? Placing the biggest burden on our economy and taxpayers? How many of the countries that are way behind us with their regulation policies were involved?

    Big loss for the US companies that are at the very forefront of developing and exporting efficient renewable energy. I guess those highly paid engineers, scientists and manufacturing workers can move to Appalachia and get in line for those 1000 new $30 an hour coal mining jobs.

    Even North Korea is a part of this deal. Exxon, ConocoPhillips, BP, Shell, Total, Statoil, and pretty much every oil company support the agreement.

    The benefit here is for coal.

    if China is the new leader, it's because they out-negotiated Obama as it relates to this agreement.

    I don't know, a lot of thoughtful liberals and conservatives here seem fairly united in opposition to Trump.

    I feel a little bad for you. You're missing at least half the show. Unconstrained by party puppet strings, I'm free to enjoy liberals, conservatives and Trumplodytes all go nuts.

    More entertainment for me.

    Exactly what he campaigned on and was elected on. As unhinged and hysterical Libs are and will be, it's expected.

    And fun to witness.

    How so? Are these companies going to stop their research now? Are the other countries no longer going to purchase from them? I don't understand why pulling out would stop them from being in the forefront. Did all this research start simply because of an agreement?

    That is a major part of leadership. Something the current POTUS has no clue about.

    Current POTUS? I thought the last POTUS negotiated this treaty? Wasn't the treaty already complete and perfect? What leadership would be needed? Aren't all those countries going to abide by their promises? Figure this has to be just as Iron clad and forthcoming as the Iranian Nuke deal right?

    It was made clear during the campaign and even more clear with a simple search. The US got fooked with this agreement, which is probably how Barry designed it.

    Don't worry, just 7 and 1/2 years to go with the Trump presidency. Looking forward to Kennedy's replacement this summer! After that, Ginsburg is up next.

    I encourage you too look at "all of those countries" and what is expected of them.

    It's poor legislation. Like the Iran deal. Unless you aren't American. Then it's awesome.

    By pulling out we are retreating from a leadership position on climate change, energy and technological innovation. As RutgrHoops pointed out, the energy sector is going to be a major part of the world's next economic transformation and now Trump has opened the door for another country to take the leadership role.

    Leadership isn't pulling your pants down and getting fooked. That's as idiotic as leading from behind. POTUS has a responsibility to U.S. citizens. The last guy forgot that.

    Renegotiate the deal. If climate is so important and real, then surely those countries will want to actually do something about it other than take from America, right?
