Pittsburgh is getting dragged into a debate that we didn't ask for, but for which the city is uniquely equipped. For me, it's about pollution, not politics.
I'll be the first to admit though I read the Paris Agreement (linked below) I won't claim to understand all the legalese. It could be good, it could be bad... I don't know. But I suspect many who pontificate about its merits and/or lack thereof, have also not actually READ the agreement. Even bigger picture than that, there's been a serious miscalculation by people concerned about the environment: focusing on climate change.
The mere phrase, "Climate Change," is steeped in politics and pandering and while it has done more to raise awareness about pollution than any other brand name, "Climate Change" (TM?) has also emboldened many contrarians to take pride in pollution just to spite their political foes.
It's unfortunate that our petty differences have gotten in the way of things we really should all be in favor of, like reducing pollution.
At the top of this post is a picture of soot being cleaned from a Pittsburgh building.
Which half of the building do you prefer?
Which city's air would you rather breathe?
Let's be about the business at hand and make a better, cleaner future together... and don't let an agreement or lack of one change that.

P.S. Happy to spread Tesla grin to anyone who hasn't made the step yet. You know where to find me... what better time could there be?
