Deal or no Deal

French President Emmanuel Macron
believes that the U.S. will soon return
to the Paris climate change agreement
which was torpedoed by Donald Trump
but he has stated that he will say‘ Non’
to the demands of the American chump
to re-negotiate the terms of the deal.
Monsieur Macron is in no doubt
he must pursue his objective with zeal
to counteract the United States’ pullout,
the consequences of which were plain:
their withdrawal would hurt the world.
America's difficulty is China's opportunity
as they are in favour of the Paris accord.
Business leaders have shown their unity
in condemning the recantation as insane.
The U.S.’ emissions would still fall but
they will fall by half as much as planned.
To be successful co-operation is the key;
without progress our planet is doomed,
if everything fails there won’t be a Planet B.
