That's what I was thinking..

It's an excellent start 7 years in the making with all the 200 countries that have signed on..

Hillary made a very Presidential to be Statement that is inclusive and grateful for all the work that went into the #Paris Climate Change Agreement.. knowing full well that she will be building on it in her administration.

“The Paris agreement is testament to America’s ability to lead the world in building a clean energy future where no one is left out or left behind. And it was made possible in part by every person, business owner, and community in the United States and around the world that stepped up to prove we don’t have to choose between growing our economy and protecting our kids’ health and future—we can do both."

She is very Gracious for all the work that went into making this Global structure to build on and gave credit where it is due.. her experience as President Obama's SOS will be invaluable help in continuing this agreement and making it stronger throughout her time in Office.

While the #ParisAgreement is a step forward it goes nowhere near far enough. The planet is in crisis. We need bold action now.

POTUS has worked nearly 2 terms raising US climate performance, almost 200 countries unite, but not "bold" enough? https://twitter.com/SenSanders/status/675774792121909248

@Kat4Obama Sanders is incapable of understanding incremental change, historic over time. His reflex is to whine & project bitter disappointment.

Another statement on Sander's reaction to Paris Climate Change Agreement~

December 12, 2015 at 9:29 pm

Bernie Sanders simply doesn’t know when to be gracious or how to be respectful of others, which in and of itself disqualifies him for the presidency. He could not accomplish one millionth of what President Obama has done and only knows how to carp and minimize the work of others. He’s an irritating, petulant curmudgeon

How US negotiators ensured landmark Paris climate deal was Republican-proof

At 11.30pm Paris time, a small group of White House officials dashed into a temporary plywood hut in the exhibition hall where, a few hours earlier, a historic legal agreement to cut emissions causing climate change was secured. They were just in time to catch a live feed of Barack Obama declaring “a turning point for the world”.

These were the officials who helped set the US negotiating position for the talks – or, perhaps more accurately, helped craft the deal according to US specifications in order to insulate Obama and the agreement from attacks.

When it came to Republicans in Congress, they wanted the agreement to be bullet-proof. That was no easy feat in a negotiation over an immensely complicated challenge involving nearly 200 countries, and half a dozen rival negotiating blocs.

“We met the moment,” Obama said in his address. The Paris agreement on its own would not end climate change, he said, but “this agreement will help delay or avoid some of the worst consequences of climate change, and will pave the way for even more progress, in successive stages, over the coming years”.

The rest of the fascinating story..

The Paris Climate Deal Is President Obama’s Biggest Accomplishment

This weekend, leaders from 196 countries approved the first global agreement to limit greenhouse-gas emissions in human history. The pact is a triumph of international diplomacy shared by diplomats across the planet. It also represents the culmination of a patient strategy by the Obama administration that unfolded over years, and which even many sympathetic journalists long dismissed as fanciful. Obama’s climate agenda has lurked quietly on the recesses of the American imagination for most of his presidency. It is also probably the administration’s most important accomplishment.

1. Climate change is different from other issues. The Obama administration has enacted important reforms to prevent a Great Depression, reform health care, overhaul the financial system and education, and craft important breakthroughs with Iran and Cuba. But climate change occupies a category of its own. The damage from climate change is irreversible. Melted glaciers cannot be easily refrozen; extinct species cannot be reborn; flooded coastal cities are unlikely to be rebuilt. Action to mitigate climate change has an urgency nothing else can match.

2. Paris is a BFD. In 1990, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change called for a global treaty to limit the effects of greenhouse-gas emissions. The United Nations spent the next quarter century trying, and failing, to organize effective world action, despite increasingly dire warnings of massive, deadly, irreversible change that would threaten human life as we know it. An extremely simple conclusion can be drawn from this timeline: A worldwide-climate-change agreement is incredibly hard to do. If the Paris agreement were a simple matter of serving some nice French meals and writing some vague feel-good goals, it would have taken less than a quarter-century to happen.

Much MOre~


It's a BFD Obama Supporters!

Here's a portion of US President Barack Obama's speech at the Leaders Kick Off Climate Summit in Paris! #COP21

“France pulled out its culinary big guns Monday for one of the greatest kitchen challenges ever: cooking lunch for the largest one-day gathering of world leaders in history.

Five chefs, each awarded stars by the demanding judges of the Michelin food guide, joined forces for a gastronomic tour de force to defend France’s culinary reputation at a climate summit in Paris.

Undaunted by the challenge of catering to banquets with their familiar perils of rubber chicken and agonisingly long waits, the quintet sought to tempt the palates of 150 leaders, from US President Barack Obama to China’s President Xi Jinping or Russia’s Vladimir Putin.”



Here's hoping for the best for our Planet~


Mahalo Skinner, EarlG, & Elad! Best Wishes for us all!

Exactly! BS is not President Barack Obama and never will be able to for our country what Obama

has accomplished.

Love the graphic, Tommy.. it so nails it!

These are both great people, I want to say that up front, but Secretary Clinton is the most powerful

she is the one who could drive an agenda and be a fighter for federal employees," said J. David Cox Sr., the union's national president."

Yeah! that's what we've been sayin'!

Thank you su from mich!

That's right.. Blame trump on President Obama.. he gets blamed for everything else.. why not..

In their little tiny minds it would not be much of a leap to equate their trump problem with Obama.

And, I love And appreciate President Obama
