US and Saudi Arabia force G2O to drop language addressing financing action against climate change from joint statement.

Opposition from the United States, Saudi Arabia and others has forced Germany to drop a reference to financing programs to combat climate change from the draft communique at a G20 finance and central bankers meeting. 

A G20 official taking part in the meeting said on Friday that efforts by the German G20 presidency to keep the wording on climate change financing had run into resistance. 

"Climate change is out for the time being," said the official, who asked not to be named. 

At their last meeting in July 2016 in the Chinese city of Chengdu, the G20 financial leaders said they encouraged all signatories of the Paris Agreement on climate change to bring the deal into force as soon as possible. 

But U.S. President Donald Trump, who took office in November, has called global warming a "hoax" concocted by China to hurt U.S. industry and vowed to unpick the Paris climate accord that is supposed to curb rising temperatures.

Under the Obama Administration we were leaders in fighting climate change, and now suddenly we are part of the problem. 

If you will excuse me I need to cradle my head in my hands in shame and frustration.

This is how the world sees our country now, so for all intents and purposes this is who we are.

    These same knuckleheads want to limit contraception access so they can continue to overpopulate our planet as well as pollute it beyond repair.

    Nazi-Themed Trump Billboard To Stay Up As Long As He’s President, Owner Says

    The explosive sign, recently erected in Arizona, features dollar-sign swastikas and mushroom clouds.

    A billboard in Arizona is drawing public outrage after featuring President Donald Trump’s face surrounded by dollar-sign swastikas and nuclear mushroom clouds.

    The controversial artwork appeared in Phoenix on Friday. In the days since, California-based artist Karen Fiorito says she’s received death threats.

    “I think a lot of people are feeling this way and I’m just trying to express what I think is on a lot of people’s minds these days,” she told local news operation 12 News. “Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction.”

    The billboard space was provided by the owner, Beatrice Moore, who 12 News reported has offered to showcase the work for the remainder of Trump’s presidency.

      I just read she has received death threats over this.

      I'd love seeing the sign put up somewhere in every state throughout the country...starting in Anchorage, Alaska!!! (A state that is turning blue - proven by our last election cycle as to the Mayor of Anchorage!)

      A magnificent step in the right direction! Screw Donald Trump!

    Incredibly stupid tweet from Eric Trump. Have at it, peeps.

  7. Trump is creating his own legacy. Much like Hitler.

    It won't be a matter of historians interpreting or writing it. It will simply be a matter of reporting the abuse and atrocities Trump will commit on the American people and the world.

    The Republicans won't escape culpability either. They are complicit in every step. They allowed him to be their nominee. They turned a blind eye to his collusion with the Russians and his many violations of the Constitution, not just on emoluments.

    They own him.

    So will it be written.

    So, we trust a bunch of rich guys who, before oil, were camel herders, who actually wear Italian restaurant tablecloths on their heads, who actually sent most of the 911 terrorists to blow up our buildings...first of all we let them be part of the G-20?

    Secondly seriously, these guys are third world sand suckers with money...that's it they don't deserve any sort of international recognition. They treat women like shit, won't even let them drive and make them wear bedspreads as clothing. Fuck those guys.

    Oh, but wait, Trump does business with them so I guess weird headgear, terroristic tendencies, violent religion that treats women as less than human, and they are in, and treated as normal in an international discussion...maybe it's because they are as tacky with the gold as Trump is?

    Seriously the Saudis are some of the worst humans on earth. They should be shunned and ignored, but for money, right?

      When 9/11 happened, GWB flew those out of the country complicit. Fact.

    Imagine a country where the populace is so ignorant they believe they can alter scientific facts by getting down on their knees and praying to an imaginary deity.
    Imagine those people believing a demagogue that is willing to tell them whatever they want to hear...
    Now imagine that those people can - and DO - vote.

    1. Send them all to live on the coastlines that are nearest to sea level.

  10. Climate change is an important issue. Everyone should take this seriously, We wish all gets settled out well.
