President Donald Trump promised throughout his campaign that he would no longer support wasteful climate change initiatives.
Trump appears ready to keep that promise as current rumors are suggesting that he will pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
“President Trump has privately told multiple people, including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt, that he plans to leave the Paris agreement on climate change,” Axios News reported.
As most of the liberal world ponders how to combat the so-called man-made global warming, Trump remains focused on creating jobs at home.
“The Paris Agreement’s central aim is to strengthen the global response to the threat of climate change by keeping a global temperature rise this century well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius,” explained the United Nations.
“To reach these ambitious goals, appropriate financial flows, a new technology framework and an enhanced capacity building framework will be put in place, thus supporting action by developing countries and the most vulnerable countries, in line with their own national objectives,” the U.N. continued.

Those three key words — “appropriate financial flows” — essentially mean that the U.S. would be forced to pay for success, and would be obligated to send a significant stream of money to other countries.
Unsurprisingly, observers on the left had harsh words about the likely withdrawal. “(Other countries) would see withdrawal as a slap in the face, disrespecting their fundamental interests and, in turn, eroding the United States’ diplomatic capital,” former Obama adviser Todd Stern wrote in The Washington Post.
Despite frequent claims that the science of climate change is settled, many respected scientists continue to question the actual levels of climate change and their true causes and effects.
