    Well, Syria is also out so that is good. When 192 countries are all on one side, it is always good to be lumped in with Syria.

    I bet it would be pretty easy to find 192 countries that would like us to give them a billion dollars, too.

    CRAP! And here I was getting all set up to trade on the Carbon Markets. Guess I'll have to get into Bitcoins instead....:no

    So I guess then that this means the USA will not be funding $100 billion a year in “climate finance” that we pledged to the developing countries - that in return are pledging nothing... I bet they were so counting on that redistribution of wealth.

    Weather.com is already giving "predictions" of what it "might" look like, if Trump backs out of this France Climate thingy...

    And I agree @pintail2222; I think they aren't concerned so much with us not being there, as they are about our money not being there.

    Europe laughed at Trump when they wouldn't pay their 2% for defense but sure get upset when we won't pay $100 billion a year to the competition?

    Wow that's surprising. Can we sell Europe to Russia?

    It was predicted that the Paris Climate Agreement would give the planet a temperature reduction by 2100 of 0.2° Celsius.

    That's 0.36° Fahrenheit. It'll take 84 years to drop the temperature of the earth less than one half of a degree...
