Three immediate reactions to this devastating news:

  1. It makes me sick in the stomach, as it will millions of people around the globe. Most of them are powerless, poor, undereducated and dependent on the oceans, jobs in the coastal regions and air quality in the cities.
  2. Trump and his administration can be defined as planners of murder. The effect of this decision will be the death of many people. Islands and low coastal areas will be immersed, causing thousands of deaths. Extreme weather will increase the negative effects. The rapidly decreasing air quality will kill thousands, foreshorten their lives with many years and directly threaten the quality of there lives. The same goes for water quality as the rising sea level will influence the quality of drinking water and irrigation. Climate zones will change, causing growth of dry areas, unforseeable effects on agriculture, increasing conflicts over water and cattle, increase of migration and political instability.
  3. Not being a lawyer nor a politician, I cannot oversee the possibilities of law suits and political actions against these capital crimes. To me it is already murder and clearly a reason to overthrow this government of fools as soon as possible. I hope the people of the United States will understand this and that they act as soon as possible. Trump is a menace for the whole world.
