Posted on 04/11/2017 7:55:55 AM PDT by rktman
The U.S. refused to sign onto a statement with other G7 countries to commit to the implementation of the Paris climate agreement, which President Donald Trump promised to withdraw from on the campaign trail.
Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said the U.S. is in the process of reviewing many of its policies and reserves its position on this issue, which will be communicated at a future date, Italys industry and energy minister Carlo Calenda said in a statement.
Calenda said other G7 members reaffirmed their commitment towards the implementation of the Paris Agreement to effectively limit the increase in global temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial level.
The Trump administration would not sign onto a statement mentioning Paris, since the president is still deciding whether or not to keep his campaign pledge. Perry also wanted the G7 to include support for coal and natural gas in its statement.

Print it up on a roll with perforations every four inches, and they could sell a million.
I hope Ivanka doesn’t decide to weigh in.
I’d like to see a biz network do a small segment contrasting the economies of the countries signing on to this agreement vs the U.S.
I think the comparisons would be instructive at the least.
Good. But I’m still mad at him for funding NASA “climate science” at 2015 levels.
Bravo Pres Trump
He’s going to back off of this. When Trump has the ability to decree something and he doesn’t do it right away it’s hard for me to believe he will do it. DACA and Paris will be broken promises Almost certain of it
Bless you, President Donald Trump! Why would we want what the Euros want?
Thank GOD for President Donald Trump.....AMERICA FIRST.
Let's hope Trump keeps his mind right on this so-called "climate change" nonsense.
Good boy! Love it!
An Ivanka-free decision!
Tell the EU to shove that socialist redistribution of wealth and US economy crippling sham where the sun does not shine!
“Hes going to back off of this. “
I’m afraid l must agree. He has repeatedly put climate change policies “under review” instead of doing what he promised. It’s clear he’s trying to soften the blow of selling us out and bowing to the AGW believers he is surrounded by. When he goes along with the stupid Paris “treaty” in the end don’t be surprised. Thanks Ivanka. Oh and you car makers don’t expect any CAFE relief either, which is also “under review”.
How long before a sad sack freeper posts that Trump is not doing enough, is stupid and so are we his voters. Then, tells us that Trump is done and over as President!
Michael Bastasch, the author, taking a little poetic license here, since NOBODY has said that, except Michael.: “since the president is still deciding whether or not to keep his campaign pledge.”
