Prepare to be shocked, because the New York Timesâ€™ Climate Department has noticed something they find disturbing about what the Paris Agreement hasnâ€™t accomplished:
Three years after the Paris climate agreement, the world is not on track to meet its targets. Greenhouse gas emissions are rising. And the worldâ€™s 7.6 billion people face mounting risks from more severe and more frequent floods, droughts and wildfires. https://t.co/zhFDcTjMd7

Yeah, we know youâ€™re surprised, and so is everybody else, in the most sarcastic way possible:
You mean symbolic gestures don't equal results?
This may skew the whole leftist world view!
Nah, just kidding.

But it was signed! I thought that was the magical fix-it-all.

Weird, I was told signing this magical piece of paper was going to save the world.https://t.co/CYOE8bGRdY

Wow, you mean some ink on paper by bureaucrats didn't fix it? Shocker

Maybe the Times could expand on all that:
And which country is actually reducing emissions? It can't be the one who withdrew from the meaningless Paris agreement, right?

And not one word about how the US is meeting the targets it would have had, if it hadnâ€™t pulled out.

The US is on track despite not being a signatory. Â¯_(ãƒ„)_/Â¯ https://t.co/50tzW3Ham8

Which county is actually reducing carbon emissions?

Weâ€™ll wait for their answerâ€¦ a long time.

Maybe the eco-bureaucrats owe Trump an apology. LOL.
So if youâ€™re keeping score at homeâ€¦
Signing the accords saved the environment, but then the net neutrality thing destroyed the environment, or something

The liberal/progressive spin can be so dizzying.
And this has NOTHING to do with the USA backing out. Why donâ€™t you bring this trash article to the worldâ€™s pollutersâ€” China, Russia & India. https://t.co/bkPO1bWgbL

Itâ€™ll still all end up being Trumpâ€™s fault. Just wait.
