❝ The United States has refused to sign an agreement on challenges in the Arctic due to discrepancies over climate change wording, diplomats said on Tuesday, jeopardizing cooperation in the polar region at the sharp edge of global warming.
❝ With Arctic temperatures rising at twice the rate of the rest of the globe, the melting ice is creating potential new shipping lanes and has opened much of the world’s last untapped reserves of oil and gas to commercial exploitation .
A meeting of eight nations bordering the Arctic in Rovaniemi in Finland on Tuesday was supposed to frame a two-year agenda to balance the challenge of global warming with sustainable development of mineral wealth.
❝ But sources with knowledge of the discussions said the United States balked at signing a final declaration as it disagreed with wording that climate change was a serious threat to the Arctic.
Our pantywaist president and his pimp, Pompeo, aren’t about to admit to science when they are committed to oil and other mineral profiteers ready to strip-mine the Arctic. The two of them – Pompeo and Trump – are in a fancy dress footrace to see who is the best imitation Mussolini to run the next two or more terms as fake president.
