About That Paris Climate Agreement – Trump Trolled & Resisted By Barack Obama, The Weather Channel & Everybody In Between


Trump has pissed off everyone after pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement. And folks aren’t shying away about their feelings. Go inside for details on several states forming the United States Climate Alliance, how the Weather Channel trolled Trump and former president Barack Obama’s response…

Right after Trump pulled out of the Paris Clime Agreement (a deal that would help reduce greehouse gases and global warming), members of his Advisory Council started dropping like flies.  Folks like Elon Musk and Apple's CEO threw deuces, and this was after they got dragged for joining in the first place...and stayed.

Governors of California, Washington and New York have banned together and formed an alliance to protect the U.S. climate goals. For whatever reason, Trump doesn't believe in global warming or that greenhouse gases having an affect on the planet.

The new partnership is called the United States Climate Alliance and it will reportedly serve as way for states to coordinate in dealing with climate change. This is a huge deal as the three states make up about a fifth of the United State and GDP, according to Politico.

Politicans - including NY governor Andrew Cuomo, NYC mayor Bill de Blasio, California governor Jerry Brown, and Washington governor Jay Inslee - took to Twitter to announce their new coalition:











Former president Barack Obama issued a statement in regards to Trump’s move and he’s confident that states and cities will continue pursuing a low-carbon future for generations to come.  And he didn't hold back.

The statement reads:

A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children.

It was steady, principled American leadership on the world stage that made that achievement possible. It was bold American ambition that encouraged dozens of other nations to set their sights higher as well. And what made that leadership and ambition possible was America’s private innovation and public investment in growing industries like wind and solar – industries that created some of the fastest new streams of good-paying jobs in recent years, and contributed to the longest streak of job creation in our history.

Simply put, the private sector already chose a low-carbon future. And for the nations that committed themselves to that future, the Paris Agreement opened the floodgates for businesses, scientists, and engineers to unleash high-tech, low-carbon investment and innovation on an unprecedented scale.

The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is also on board and he’s helping to foot the bill for the Paris Climate Agreement. He announced Bloomberg Philanthropies will cough up $15 million to support the UN:


Like to show your support for continued climate action. #ClimateofHope

Oh, and there was some shade thrown at Trump from the Weather Channel today.

On their website, they linked off to several posts on the impact of climate change can have on our environement. With titles like, "So What Happens to the Earth Now?" and "Still Don't Care? Proof You Should," we couldn't help but laugh.

Now, everyone needs to come together and "fight the power" to save our planet!  Or something.
