Trump, Again Throws Dirt At France As Nations Meet For Paris Climate Deal

Donald Trump Speaks On Paris Agreement.

President Donald Trump  of the United States has once again attacked the Paris agreement on fighting climate change, citing the ongoing protests in the French capital as proof that he was right to reject the pact.

Earlier today, he tweeted while UN climate talks was on going in Poland, where nearly 200 nations have gathered to agree on a universal rulebook to make good on the promises they signed up to in the 2015 Paris climate deal.

Saturday’s comment was not the first time Trump had used the Paris “yellow vest” protests which began on November 17 with road blockades against fuel prices but have since ballooned into a mass movement against French President Emmanuel Macron to slam the climate deal.

On Tuesday, he called the Paris agreement “fatally flawed.”

Trump has long said he distrusts the consensus by nearly all the world’s respected climate scientists on the link between human activity and rising temperatures, as well as other damaging climate change phenomena.

Since becoming president in January 2017, he has pulled the United States out of the international Paris Agreement on attempting to bring down global temperatures, and torn up a raft of environmental protection laws, saying the US economy needs the boost.

Late last month, Trump’s own government issued a dire report warning of massive economic losses if carbon emissions continue to feed climate change unchecked, but the US leader said he didn’t believe the findings.
