Our closest neighbor, Canada, as well as our traditional ally France, both suffered popular uprisings against attempts to impose restraints against fossil fuels. More than signaling an unrest by their citizens against government’s efforts to curb carbon emissions, it shows the lack of leadership of the global leader in all things progressive, the United States. Our country’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord left a vacuum of leadership globally and gave legitimacy to those who oppose the use of renewable sources of energy. If we fail as a global spokesperson to assume leadership against climate change, we will all suffer the consequences of global warming.
