Here's what I think. Trump's going to build a wall to keep out the CO2 and the planet losers will pay for it.
Pittsburgh voted for Hillary by 80%

The mayor vows to follow the accord

Here's my favorite line from Trump's speech:

It is time to exit the Paris Accord. And time to pursue a new deal that protects the environment, our companies, our citizens and our country. It is time to put Youngstown, Ohio; Detroit, Mich.; and Pittsburgh, Pa.; along with many many other locations in our country, before Paris, France. It is time to make America great again.

Uhhh.....does he 'get' the fact that the Paris Accord is a climate change agreement/pledge by almost 200 countries?? It sounds like Trump thinks this is about the climate in Paris...which wouldn't surprise me.

Tell me how we are going to spur job growth HERE in the U.S. and lower our energy costs.
Does Trump STILL think he's going to create thousands of coal jobs?? Two coal companies closed JUST THIS WEEK.
Thanks from imaginethat

The old General Motors giant auto plant was razed to the ground in Columbus, Ohio and a Casino built in its place. I gambled there once and took $60 from them and never went back. Today when I drive by it don't see enough cars to keep it in business and there is talk that it is going belly up. The Ford auto plant in Atlanta got razed to the ground and high end condos built in its place. Make America Great Again by brining back manufacturing.

The short answer is no. He doesn't get it

He's now alone with Syria and Nicaragua.

Which i'm sure is a plus in his eyes.

The mayor of Pittsburgh just announced he will sign an executive order that Pittsburgh will abide by the accord, along with 61 other US mayors.

Watch what happens this week clara. The backlash against the orange assclown is going nationwide. I'll bet more than half of the country will agree to abide by the accord before the weekend is over.

Trump asked in the speech if anyone knows when the world started laughing at us.

Do you really want the answer to that question Donnie?

So he now has us on the short list with Syria and Nicaragua.

I was wrong.

I said in two years he'd have us with the third world nations.

It only took 4+ months.
Thanks from skews13 and Clara007

Good for Trump. Anytime one of Obama's unconstitutional dictator moves are shot down, the better for the country.

Good he can install solar panels in his yard at his own personal cost. That is more than fine with me.

Yep, the Paris Peace Talks evolved into the Paris Peace Accords and we all know Nixon did not violate it but North Vietnam did.
