US Formally Withdraws From Global Climate Pact

This has to be considered one of the standout accomplishments of the Trump administration.

The US has officially asked to pull out of the Paris climate agreement.

Washington formally notified the UN of its intention to withdraw on Monday, more than two years after President Donald Trump announced that the US would exit the accord.

“Today we begin the formal process of withdrawing from the Paris Agreement,” US secretary of state Mike Pompeo wrote on Twitter. “The US is proud of our record as a world leader in reducing all emissions, fostering resilience, growing our economy, and ensuring energy for our citizens.

Of course, the real problem is, and Trump appears to understand this, the evidence that near-term climate change is going to damage the planet is sketchy at best.

The US is the first country to pull out of the accord, which went into effect in 2016 and was a top policy priority for the Obama administration.

The statists are not happy. They love inflicting pain on the masses.

“Abandoning the Paris Agreement is an abdication of leadership that the vast majority of Americans oppose,” said Michael Bloomberg. the statist who once tried to ban jumbo soft drinks.



  1. Even the UN reported that the Paris agreement will provide only a third of the cuts in greenhouse gas that environmentalists claim is needed to prevent catastrophic warming. If every country involved in those accords abides by their pledges temperatures will still rise by 3 degrees Celsius by 2100. The goal of the Paris agreement was to keep the global temperature increase to under 2 degrees.

    Only seven of the 197 signatories to the Paris Climate Agreement are meeting its goals. Ten of the signatories have not ratified it.

  2. Wait. What?! I thought this was a done deal. What have the US bureaucrats been doing for the past two years? And Pompeo's statement "...begin the formal process of withdrawing..." This sounds more like the travails of BREXIT! No kudos to Trump until he actually exits this god awful conglomeration of central planners. Here's to unilateral withdrawal right now...today...pick up the phone and tell Paris goodbye...no more financial support...no more bureau support...no more propaganda...no more discussions...period. END IT!

  3. Well it does take a scammer to recognize a scam and extract himself from said scam!

  4. Does anyone know how this would change our day to day lives here in the US? I just don’t know a lot about the Paris agreement as far as what it was going to do to Americans beyond what environmental regulation stupidity we already have here.
