„If climate change destroys human life on Earth, it could be bad for business.“

As predicted, President Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord on Thursday, fulfilling a major campaign promise and angering much of the world.
“It made sense that he did it from the Rose Garden, while we still have roses and gardens,“ opened late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, hours after Trump’s formal announcement.
Kimmel has long been dissatisfied with the Trump Administration’s disregard for the planet. In January, the late night host called Trump’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) head a „piece of sh*t“ for blocking protections of America’s water.
„I really hope that when the ice caps melt, it ruins every rug at Mar-a-lago first,“ Kimmel added on Thursday. „I know that’s harsh, but it’s just how I feel.“
He also pointed out that it’s not just environmentalists who back the Paris Agreement.
