The Chinese industries are laughing their heads off at this concern for clean air. I'm curious as to why that picture of Beijing's pollution would be posted here, twice.

While over all his ban on travel to America is legal and workable his problem is how it was presented. And the fact some people were harmed by it who had traveled abroad.

Foreign exchange student from Universities all over America, were kept out and needed to re-enter to do finals.

Many others persons also were effected. So what could have been a sweet deal by his (Trump's own actions) turns out to become a death struggle.

When all that is needed is to think thing thru to the end and realize every situation has exceptions. And they need to be dealt with.


And now he is making a big mistake in not taking a stance on what is going to be the worst situation every country has ever seen when it does come.

As business is what made it and Trumps all business dealing is what is going to bring it..

And I don't care to hear from any Climate Deniers in a reply to my post/. As we both are talking theory's, and we all have hear from you before. And this thread is about Climate Change...

I would love to read what you think in a post related to this topic the Paris Accord.

Excellent response.

Back in the 60's American industry began to clean up their act. The result of a Republican President's EPA, Clean Water Act, and OSHA. None would have been effective except for an education program that convinced Industry leaders ( and of course POGO would pointed out, "we have seen the enemy and it is us."). But the end of the century, Lake Erie was again fresh and blue, our streams were clean and so was our air.

And our factories were humming. The economy was humming.

But that was not enough. Because Washington is about "CONTROL."

Enter AGW.

And now any mention of common a sense approach is met with accusations of "Greed and malevolence." If you don't believe the rhetoric you are an evil "denier." Ironically the only proof was rising global temperatures. AGW proven??? Maybe. But the temps stopped rising. So, now what? "Oh, it's climate change!" We still need to tax and regulate. Now, even more!

And so the factories left.

The earth is still here, and the climate is still changing. No matter the Laws on the books,,,; It always will.

Put a password on your thread then. Until then, here is my input:

Climate changes all the time.

While I agree re-doing the Paris Climate deal is a plus for America. Are we sure what the scope of the Trump. admin., stance is on the whole Climate banana boat is?

I hear that they are deniers, yet we get this news relating to America's last action on Climate Change...

Just where does Trump stand in relation to Climate Change? Well I did this search and the latest news to come up was from last Nov.

So has his position changed or is he playing games?

For all you climate weenies--please understand that the weather will always be under the control of Mother Nature. Plus, the Chinese don't give two shlts about clean air anyway.
