No. As the world's second biggest polluter and richest nation, the US is important. But when President Trump announced the US withdrawal in June – it takes effect in 2020 – the UN's chief climate negotiator, who delivered the Paris deal, ended up thanking him. "It provoked an unparalleled wave of support for the treaty," said Christiana Figueres. "He shored up the world's resolve on climate action, and for that we can all be grateful."

The US now seems very isolated – only war-torn Syria is also outside the Paris deal. What role they will play in Bonn is largely unknown, though promotion of coal and gas as climate solutions is planned. Rumours that the climate-sceptic head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt, would lead the US delegation proved unfounded however. One COP veteran said: "The mood on the ground is it is going to be OK: the US is not going to be a pain in the arse. They still don't know what they actually want." Nazhat Shameem Khan, Fiji's chief negotiator was even less diplomatic when asked about dealing with the US: "You can have a dialogue [even] with somebody who is an axe murderer."

You dumbass!!
The first sentence is an outright blatant lie.
The US is NOT the second largest polluter.
The US is tied for 5th for the countries with the CLEANEST air.

Where's the critical thinking that you were talking about?

Here's your top 20 polluters in the world.

Oh, I see China right up there at #6. But they do capitalism better than the US, right? I see.

The christianity of "old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner & many time (plus 1) threatener gazzzed & guzzzling" allows it be racist. Could the christianity of "old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner & many time (plus 1) threatener gazzzed & guzzzling" also allow pedophilia (roy moore version) into its brand of the ten commandments? It appears a large percentage of Alabamian christians haved pedophilia in their ten commandments.
