    Climate experts in US storm.

    The White House, ( led by Trump ), has tried to play down a report by 13 US Federal agencies saying human activity is to blame for climate change.

    The study says that it is "extremely likely"  human activity is the dominant cause for global warming. contradicting the views of Trump and members of his team.

    A Whitehouse spokesman said it supported "rigorous scientific analysis and debate", but that the climate was "always changing".

    He added that it was not certain that the Earth's climate was to greenhouse gas emissions.

    Trump said in August, that he was pulling the US out of the Paris agreement to cut global emissions.




    I don't know how much proof this fool needs to tart to be aware and act about Climate Change, as now the consensus around the world by the great mass of climatologists is that it is human activity that is creating the greatest amount of greenhouse warming.

    It is as simple as the nose on you're face that Trump and the big oil and gas companies, that are his pals, do not want to cut down on the production of fossil fuels.

    Even if they believed that fossil fuel burning causes the greenhouse gasses that help to capture the heat the planet needs to radiate into space, they are hard-core deniers about this so long as they are making plenty of money.

    And the latest news is that Trump - and by association - America, has been not been invited by France to the Paris climate-change summit in December.

    Over a hundred countries, as well as non governmental organizations, have been invited for the Dec.12 summit. 

    Read the news item on this from Reuters HERE




    If nothing else tells us that Trump and America have buried their heads in the sand, this certainly does.

    I wonder what the supporters of climate change in America think of this ?

    It seems outrageous, but typical, that Trump and his cohorts have pulled America out of the Paris agreement on climate change.

    Money seems to drive all in America, especially with Trump at the helm.

    Something tells me that America will regret this decision.

    I hope so Angie.

    I am sure that there are strong forces in and around the American government that disagree with this tack and I am also sure that if these forces get their way, Trump and his money-making sidekicks will be so heavily ridiculed that they will have to relent and get back onto the Paris accord.

    I guess we will see about that.
