The Trump administration has formally notified the United Nations that it will withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement, the first formal step in a one-year process to exit the global pact to fight climate change, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed on Monday.

The United States, the world’s largest historic greenhouse gas emitter, would become the only country outside the accord, a decision President Donald Trump promised to boost U.S. oil, gas and coal industries.

“The U.S. is proud of our record as a world leader in reducing all emissions, fostering resilience, growing our economy, and ensuring energy for our citizens. Ours is a realistic and pragmatic model,” Pompeo said on Twitter.

The State Department letter to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres started the clock on a process that would be completed one day after the 2020 U.S. presidential election, on Nov. 4, 2020.

Environmental groups said they hoped Trump would be defeated in 2020 by a rival who would re-join the agreement with bold new targets.

    I agree with almost all i have heard from your program (I listen 10:30 Sunday nights. In the Dallas area). I can see the 4 horsemen as communism, capitalism, catholicism, islam for example; I am also Pentecostal, baptized in Jesus name, filled with the Holy Ghost evidenced in speaking in tongues, etc.(by the way, I don’t see any other way, wondering if you would agree ?).
    However, one area I’m not seeing: You say you don’t believe in climate change. As I read the book of Revelation, it seems to me, the “scorching” of the earth, and to some degree, of people is evident in the end times; the heating of the sun, the scorching of the earth is mentioned more than once. It seems to me heating of the earth is biblical ???.
    Also, as I read National Geographic, Time Magazine, for many years the reduction of the ice caps, the affirming of the same by people who have lived for generations in those arctic areas attest to the fact ??
