Trump's decision

Hans B. Boernke, Savusavu | Sunday, June 4, 2017

The announcement made by US President Donald Trump to abandon the Paris climate change deal for the US shows not only anti-solidarity with the rest of the world but simply ignorance of the truth in which way our planet is heading.

There is nothing to re-negotiate as he declares his intention.

The agreement already contains the absolute minimum of what must be done to save the planet.

Germany, France and Italy released a statement that they will refuse to renegotiate the outcome of the Paris deal with the US.

Now the COP 23 conference will be under much more pressure to be successful.
