The riots against rising fuel taxation in France, and Paris in near lockdown following what’s been described as a day of rage, have put the Paris Climate Change Agreement under the spotlight.

‘Very sad day & night in Paris. Maybe it’s time to end the ridiculous and extremely expensive Paris Agreement and return money back to the people in the form of lower taxes? The U.S. was way ahead of the curve on that and the only major country where emissions went down last year!’
