President-elect Donald Trump is reportedly looking for avenues to withdraw from a global climate change agreement, Reuters reports.

According to the report, Trump and his transition team are looking for ways withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Agreement, a 2015 pact that plans to further curb greenhouse gas emissions that was ratified by 109 countries, including the U.S. The pact became effective on Nov. 4.

“It was reckless for the Paris agreement to enter into force before the election,” a Trump adviser told Reuters.

The Trump team is now looking for ways to bypass the agreement’s withdrawal procedures, which would take four years.

    No worries. America doesn't make "agreements". We sign treaties. Treaties get ratified by the senate. This climate thing isn't a treaty. So it can simply be ignored. It doesn't even need to be repudiated. Let the rest of the world cripple their own economies if they wish. We aren't playing along. And crippling us was always the point of global warming.
