Re: Landmark Climate Accord Struck in France

Point is that it's kind of smug to make sarcastic remarks of the financial aspect relating to the climate-strategy of the European Union, when you happen to live in the one country that's not really affected by it.

Like cphite said, it would seem the agreement isn't binding anyone to anything really.

Though I'm certain EU will continue shooting itself in the leg and driving away all kinds of industries with even stricter regulations and directives.
