Curtatone “I certainly hope President Trump enjoys Mar-a-Lago while it’s still above water.”

Mayor Curtatone weighs in on Washington Post Article :Scott Pruitt calls for an ‘exit’ from the Paris accord, sharpening the Trump White House’s climate rift

“Oh, hell no. We cannot go back on the Paris climate agreement.”

First off, we’re already most of the way toward reaching our 2025 carbon reduction goal. And, if we fail or bail on this, it could have catastrophic global consequences. I certainly hope President Trump enjoys Mar-a-Lago while it’s still above water.
Second, reneging on this agreement would turn our nation into an international pariah. It’s questionable whether other nations would trust us to make a deal of any sort, and our refusal to acknowledge and lessen our impact on climate change could lead other nations (including long-time allies) to levy economic sanctions against us.
