House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is leading a delegation of members of Congress to the annual international climate summit known as COP25 in Madrid, Spain, next week. While the delegation will include members of both the House and Senate, it will not be bipartisan, as only Democrats will be attending.

“It is a privilege to accompany a high-level Congressional delegation to Spain to combat the existential threat of our time: the climate crisis,” Pelosi said in a statement on Saturday.

“Taking action to protect our planet is a public health decision for clean air and clean water for our children, an economic decision for creating the green, good-paying jobs of the future, a national security decision to address resource competition and climate migration and also a moral decision to be good stewards of God’s creation and pass a sustainable, healthy planet to the next generation,” she said. “On behalf of the U.S. Congress, I am proud to travel to COP25 to reaffirm the commitment of the American people to combating the climate crisis.”

In 2016, attendees at the COP25 summit in Paris, France, announced they would sign a pact to lower greenhouse gas emissions, a deal commonly known as the Paris Climate Agreement. President Trump announced the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement shortly after taking office, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced earlier this month the U.S. had begun formal proceedings to pull the U.S. out.

The withdrawal process takes a year and will not become official until at least a day after the 2020 presidential election. The terms of the deal say no country can withdraw in the first three years, so November 4, 2019, was the earliest the U.S. could actually start the withdrawal process. Climate experts largely agree that pulling out will hurt efforts to fight global warming.

I think it’s a great idea to move forward as if Donald Trump does not even exist. 

We should ignore his impulsive actions and continue to do the things that protect our country and our planet without bothering to deal with his bullshit. 

After all when he is dead and buried in a secret undisclosed location the country and planet will still be here.

At least we hope they will still be here.

    Good, I am glad Nancy is ignoring the moron occupying the WH, it is tax dollars well spent. If little donnie complaints they should deduct the trip expenses from his golf trips and his adult children’s secret service bills from their business trips.

    by the way, did we pay for donnie jr’s security on his book tour also?

    For Pence to be an effective surrogate in 2020, campaign officials say his reputation must be preserved.

    “Pence gives people confidence who lack comfort with our circus,” said a person close to Trump. “He helps provide stability, which is critical.”

    “Trump is a businessman. We can just pay him money and the problems will be solved,” said a politically connected person in Beijing, speaking on the condition of anonymity to the Post about sensitive international issues. “As long as we have money, we can buy him. That’s the reason why we prefer him to Democrats.”

    “You remember the Vichy Republic?” I’m just suggesting they’re falling in line in a way that is absolutely despicable as it relates to the Constitution.”

    There is absolutely nothing about Mike Pence that gives me confidence.

    Say it’s actually true. Instead of murder robots encased in human flesh, the future sent back a teenage Swedish girl to warn about the impending apocalypse of climate change.
    Say that’s actually what’s happening here.

    “For Pence to be an effective surrogate in 2020, campaign officials say his reputation must be preserved.” That horse bolted from the stable long ago.
