Trump announced today that he would pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement that was set by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and agreed-to by the U.S. in 2015.
Human-caused climate change has been found to be causing global warming by a majority of meteorologists and other scientists. Increasing temperatures worldwide are resulting in melting of the polar icecaps, melting of glaciers, and impacts upon the tundra. Global warming is also thought to be fueling greater numbers of atmospheric storms, and increasing the energy of storms.
As such, Trump’s decision to pull the U.S. out of the agreement seems to be motivated out of a desire to curry political favor at the expense of the survival of many species, many cities and islands, and even seems to risk the longterm survival of the human race itself.
But, the resultant global warming will help keep that Cup of Covfefe nice and hot!
