Sean, this is more than a bipartisan issue, it is a global issue, and therefore a good reason for a global pact. I don’t think it has to be govt. or private; I’m a firm believer in throwing everything you have at a problem. The pact doesn’t prohibit us from doing more than required so we could do more. The real value I believe is that it gives us a seat at the table and a voice to go with it. It allows us to hold others feet to the fire and push them to do more. The pact is a beginning and does not go far enough, but we have to start somewhere.

"It’s a simple truth, delivered by a teenage girl in a fateful moment. The sailboat, La Vagabonde, shepherding Greta Thunberg to the Port of Lisbon, and the United Nations is hosting this year’s climate conference. Unless they agree on transformative action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the world’s temperature rise since the Industrial Revolution will hit the 1.5°C mark—and expose some 350 million additional people to drought and push roughly 120 million people into extreme poverty by 2030 (driving climate REFUGEES). For every fraction of a degree that temperatures increase, these problems will worsen. This is not fear mongering; this is science. For decades, researchers and activists have struggled to get world leaders to take the climate threat seriously. But this year, an unlikely teenager somehow got the world’s attention." What is our president doing???

All those who support Trump should be henceforth legally denied the right to enter into contracts on the grounds that they have by such support sufficiently demonstrated themselves to be mentally incompetent and morally irresponsible.

For NoBama; President Trump issued an executive order to review the Clean Water Rule, leading to a June 27 decision to repeal the rule. The rule provides clear and predictable protections for many streams, wetlands and other waterways that are essential to the health of our parks and communities. On the recommendation of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, President Trump signed proclamations removing protections from more than 2 million acres of national monument land at Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, opening up previously protected land to potential drilling, mining and logging.

Poor plineys been hit with the immaturity virus again. Yep, where have we heard the - All Republicans evil- All Democrats Saints childish B/S before?? Lol!! A true sign of the intellectual loser that has nuthin. Lol!! Pliney what was Democrat Nelson doing for years? Rational folks realize there's plenty of pollution blame to go round. Since pliney now speaks for Jamie Williams (Scientist?

Facts only pliney not mindless Trump hate nonsense that YOU can't EVER back up as we -always- see from YOU & other hate motivated fact less "liberals" pliney after finishing your lil word games (You like 14 or something? sad.)Try some nursery rhymes? Another, fully irrelevant "liberal" needing a fresh diaper & education.

The only thing Conservatives want to conserve is their political positions and wealth. They care little of truly conserving resources and promoting environmental principles. Therefore, the word Conservative with respect to the Republicans is a misnomer.

Look at Rick Scott's record as the governor of Florida who did nothing to improve the water quality of the Everglades watershed. The result was epic blue/green algae pollution that affected businesses, home values, tourism and health. This is typical of the Republican mentality. Sure hope that Ron DeSantis can keep up the good work.

The worst in American history: The Trump environmental legacy WASHINGTON, July 8, 2019 ----- In light of President Trump’s anticipated comments about his environmental record, The Wilderness Society issued a statement today to put the President’s policies in context. Statement from Jamie Williams, President of The Wilderness Society “Trump is the worst President for the environment in our history. No amount of spin from this administration can hide its legacy of abuse, neglect and corruption that threatens our health and the health of our environment. Trump’s illegal land grab, which slashed Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in Utah, was the biggest single rollback of land protections in American history. And that’s just one low point in an abysmal record of attacking the most cherished places in the country, from the Arctic Refuge in Alaska to Minnesota’s Boundary Waters.

Once again pliney is playin in the toilet spreading outright lies to make a hate based non-point. "He wants to eliminate water conservation measures" is of course a lie. All Trump did was eliminate National Disgrace Obama's "liberal" over reach policy and replaced it with his policy. Did pliney mention this? Of course not! Lol!! - pliney, how bout this one? Trump signs massive lands, conservation bill into law! **President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed one of the most important conservation bills in a decade into law** permanently reauthorizing the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund that pays for parks, wildlife and recreation projects in all 50 states.

I shall continue to have fun with our so call "President." There are 350 million toilets in the United States, roughly one for every person. Imagine Trump sending a Tweet to all of the toilet manufacturers demanding that they retool their factories to produce toilets that use more water, because he does not understand the importance of water conservation, in the US, or globally. Oh, pardon me, he can't think outside of Maralago!

The heart and brain are 73% water and require hydration to function properly. Please do us all a favor Don, start drinking!

The total idiocy of Trump is on display because now, out of the blue, like a Tweet, he wants to eliminate water conservation measures based on his great prowess of toilet and faucet fluid mechanics.

Surely a marker of his mental illness.

Wild-eyed bartender, immature serial liar and outspoken anti-USA anti-Jew racist, Democrat Communist AOCortez was *again exposed* as the total fraud she is when --her own-- Chief of Staff admitted her "green new deal" policy wasn't about "climate" at all, but for instituting socialism ("liberal" BIG Tax and BIG TIME Control)into the US and it's economy. Poor duped climate wackos needing a cause to cling to will believe just about anything. Lol!! "We're all gonna die in 12 years!!" Or the drama actress Greta Dumburg tearfully acting while reading a prepared George Soros script at the UN den of thieves. These climate hucksters, Obama, PT Gore, AOC prey on the stupid for a variety of reasons - NONE, in the best interest of the USA.

Oceans running out of oxygen? Lol!! Good news all this warming trend will be a thing of the past as we've already entered the predicted 2-250 solar cool down where staying warm and growing food in the cold will be the challenge. Last 20 years Earths global temps have hardly moved and will soon start lowering like the IQ of most climate wackos that need a cause to cling to already has. When rigged Obama "science" and AOC bartender "science" is what you go by then science ignorance is what you get as with sooo many climate frauds like AOC, Obama, PT Gore and their fully duped followers desperately needing causes to cling to fill empty lives and little hate filled "minds" Soon climate whack jobs will be screaming TRUMP CAUSES GLOBAL COOLING! Sometimes hot sometimes cold and all controlled by the sun. Anything else is Obama AOC climate nonsense to get in your wallet and control with socialism.
