I see people sharing this news as if this is a good thing. Yes, we are all desperate, and it is against therefore we 'like' this. But what this really is, is another Republican millionaire effectively privatising the !

This is a step backwards, not forward.

@jd regardless of who is in or out, I'm not seeing any evidence that agreements like this are moving the needle at all in terms atmospheric CO2.

@bob from what I understand, AT BEST the Paris agreement might decrease the rate of increase, but never really reduce it. Perhaps it was a 'good first step' but today people are touting the agreement as revolutionary and progressive, it is not.

@jd @bob

The miracle was that they actually did make an agreement.

It was not in the least ambitious enough...

The only hope now is that the economic, and geo-political factors can help out. It might just if Europe and China goes for it.

Already now coal is not economically viable, so the poor Trump supporters in Kentucky will probably have to find other businesses anyway.

But the outlook is a bit bleak I must admit.

@jd @bob @Katharsisdrill why don't they just find 'otter' businesses
