Reports out of the United Nations yesterday suggested that Nicaragua would soon join the Paris Climate Accord. 

Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega all but confirmed the news when has told state media that his government will “soon” sign on to the agreement. 

When he signs, only Syria—ravaged by war—and the United States—ravaged by ignorance and stupidity—will be on the outside looking in. 

Donald Trump has said the Paris Accord imposes  too many restrictions on U.S. companies. This is nonsense.  The data show that firms who prepare for, and attempt to mitigate the risks from climate change are rewarded by markets and consumers alike.

Climate change is real. Deal with it. 

TGIF For Friday, the 22nd of September, in 2017. It is not a normal day.
