A so-called "Trump effect" is damaging global progress on climate change by harming international diplomacy, according to a report published Monday.
The report from the Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) considered the impact President Donald Trump was having on the objectives of the Paris Agreement. Drafted in 2015, the agreement set out targets for international economies to work towards in order to reduce carbon emissions.
Joseph Curtin, senior fellow at the IIEA and the author of the report, said the Trump administration's policies were stalling progress towards those targets.
"The 'Trump effect' has created a powerful countervailing force acting against the momentum (the Paris Agreement) hoped to generate," he said in the report.
Curtin noted three key areas where the Trump effect had "applied a brake" to the worldwide movement. He said federal rollbacks were increasing the attractiveness of fossil fuel investments; U.S. withdrawal from the agreement had created moral and political cover for other nations to follow suit; and goodwill at international negotiations was being damaged.

“Oh, the HORROR” - Pearl-clutching Climate Hoaxers
He says that like it’s a bad thing.
IOW the scam $$$$$ are drying up.
Come out of the tank fellas.
They finally realized.....the money tree has left the room....
Ha ha..that was a good one.
That’s a feature, not a bug.
We need to tap the brakes on that money scheme.
Who owns cars? The Po? Who owns Homes? The Po? Who travel? The Po? Hell no, it’s the Middle Class and that’s who the 1 Worlders are trying to put out of business. But note! Who owns Guns like $1K ARs? The Po? Hell no it’s the US middle class so the Democrats best realize they won’t Dis-Arm US Middle Class like the 1 Worlders did to the Middle Class everywhere else in the World:-)
President Trump, in his spare time from saving America, is also saving the entire world and freedom loving people worldwide from globalist totalitarianism and tyranny!
Best election, best POTUS, evah!
There IS NO PROGRESS towards those targets.
“Progress on climate change” will only occur when the “changists” are thrown out of their positions and ridiculed. These anti-science losers and grant-pursuers are useful idiots for the fascists who want to take your Freedom..
The ‘Trump effect’ is slowing international progress on white genocide, think tank warns ...
You know, if they were actually honest about the agenda.
A little bit about the IIEA:
“The Institute of International and European Affairs (IIEA) is an Irish policy think tank and EU advocacy group based in Dublin, Ireland. The IIEA is mostly funded by the Irish State and Irish Stateowned entities, and its leadership, Chairperson and Director-General, have mostly come from Irish political or Irish State department backgrounds. It is known for its seminars and speaking events in Dublin which have attracted notable international figures.
“A June 1996 Irish Times article notes that the Institute of European Affairs (IEA) was set up in 1989 by Brendan Halligan, the former General Secretary of the Irish Labour Party, and that the financial backing came from Irish semistate bodies, and particular those on which Halligan was a Board member; the article also notes that the IEA rented a house on 8 North Great George’s Street of which Halligan was a part owner. A subsequent Irish Times article in January 2000 stated that the IEA was formally set up by Halligan in 1991, and described Halligan as “a powerful European tobacco lobbyist”, and that the IEA was associated with Halligan’s political consulting and lobbying firm, Consultants in Public Affairs (CIPA).
it’s music to my ears.
The Trump effect is real, climate change is a globalist hoax.

They ought pay attention to the trend in France.. yellow vests rioting, graffiti on the Champs Elyses, hundreds of cars burnt.. all of which gets minimal coverage for some reason..
Take note of that, ay, IIEA.
