People do know these fires where deliberately set by farmers to gain arable agricultural land where Brazils president turned a blind eye to it maybe he and his Government should be held accountable...

Plus with all the smoke in the air it also creates global cooling so maybe this will stop evil global warming who knows.

I wonder, are they incentivizing their farmers to grow soy and corn for ethanol as US policies have done?

That was so funny that he did that and that the excuse was so clearly, blatantly false. The guy really is entertaining at times. But most likely not a single person at that climate meeting missed his presence even one little bit.

Trump skipped the Climate meeting. His press secretary Grisham said “he was meeting with the heads of state from Germany and India”. Alrighty then, except both Germany and India were present at the Climate meeting.

After the meeting, Trump was asked about the Climate meeting. . He replied “ we’re having it in a little while”, oblivious that the meeting had just concluded.

So where was he?

Doing something more important than agreeing to more wealth redistribution.

Having his usual high-colonic treatment to rid himself of those nasty McD's blockages. You can always tell when he needs one by that facial expression emulating a three bean burrito gas attack and his sitting on only one cheek at a time.

What, you don't think creating a global taxing scheme will solve global warming, I mean climate change, or whatever they will call it next?

It shouldn't have the word climate.

Climate has mate in it which historically symbolizes a male/female relationship and is not fully inclusive.

Plus mate implies that you need at least 2 people and is fairly hostile to loners.

What is low IQ is stating people deny the climate is changing.
