Wow, that was fast: just since this morning when the rumor started flying that the Russian Usurper was going to pull out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement…
- Exxon Mobil shareholders on Wednesday approved a proposal calling for the oil company to disclose the impact on its business of compliance with global climate change guidelines, an issue at the heart of a probe by two state attorneys general.
- Elon Musk Says He’ll Have ‘No Choice’ But To Quit Trump Job Forum If U.S. Leaves Paris Climate Accord
Here’s the thing: Trump will not give in to pressure. Weak! Even from Ivanka (and it is highly doubtful to me that she is doing anything except lining her own pockets), so I expect him to double-down and do whatever is the most destructive. Also/too: bet me when we get to the bottom of the Russian corruption, we will find Putin and Gazprom (which is his own graft connection). Cutting fossil fuel emissions cuts Putin’s profit margin. That’s the real reason Trump wants this one.
