Elon Musk has no influence in the Strategic and Policy Forum
 
Because he doesn't make coal-powered cars, believes in science and could not convince logical decisions for the United States

China and EU will step up and take the world leadership; joining forces to charge ahead on the implementation of the Paris Agreement and accelerate their economic development & security, energy production and shepherd the global transition to -- clean energy.
“No one should be left behind,” notes Miguel Cañete, the EU climate commissioner, “but the EU and China have decided to move forward.”

America First?

America Alone.

I'm pretty sure the plan is to use the Paris agreement as toilet paper.
He is just upset that when the Paris agreement is flushed people are not going to be forced to buy his products.
When some one really believes in something greater than the all mighty dollar they become more steadfast in their role in the face of opposition.

Oh come on, China didn't have to do squat under the Paris treaty. And note it is called the Paris TREATY by 194 of the 195 original signers. Only in the US was it called the Paris Honda Accord. Why? So 200+ years worth of Constitutional Republic could be cast aside by a new dictator who was willing to once again put the US on the short end of the stick. Good riddance to the dictator and the dictator's policies. That's the beautiful thing about governing with only Executive Orders in the US, they all can be undone with the stroke of a pen and it's like they never happened.
Wanna get lasting change accomplished? Work within the Constitution and build consensus among all branches.
Elon Musk hasn't been elected dog catcher, he has no more say in what happens than any other one of the millions of single voters in the US.

Now we get to have G3 summits with Syria and Nicaragua.

I don't think this is the New American Century they had in mind, but we just slammed (and bolted, and piled furniture up against) the door on the last one.

At least the business world, now including Exxon's shareholders, are routing around the disruption.

I was at work yesterday when it happened. I didn't know it had already been flushed.

Good riddance Paris agreement.
Should have gone through the house and senate.
Instant gratification for a sense of accomplishment is rarely long lasting.

We are currently using the earth as a toilet. Elon Musk understands the facts, and accepts climate science.

Quite the contrary - they will have to build enough renewable energy generation to more than power the entire US grid.

Please note that Nicaragua wanted the Paris Agreement to be far stronger than it is. And Syria is in the middle of a brutal civil war that was largely sparked by climate change.
