CLI­MATE DEAL AGAIN

The Asian Age - - World -

Wash­ing­ton, Dec. 8: US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Satur­day once again at­tacked the Paris agree­ment on fight­ing cli­mate change, cit­ing the protests in Paris.

His morn­ing tweet came in the mid­dle of UN cli­mate talks in Poland, where nearly 200 na­tions have gath­ered to agree on a univer­sal rule­book to make good on 2015 Paris cli­mate deal.

“The Paris Agree­ment isn’t work­ing out so well for Paris. Protests and ri­ots all over France,” Trump said. “Peo­ple do not want to pay large sums of money, much to third world coun­tries ( that are ques­tion­ably run), in or­der to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment.”
