What are we going to do with Donald? It seems that dividing the world and having an extremely questionable hairstyle is not enough for The Lowest Common Denominator Dude.
This week Donald Trump announced that the United States was withdrawing from the Paris Accord.
This was not unexpected.
The Paris Accord is an international agreement signed in 2016 which addresses climate change. It seems there is something going on with planet earth that is not altogether positive.
The ice caps are melting, carbon gas is everywhere, trees are getting scarcer. It would appear that we are in something of a self created pickle with regard to keeping the show on the road.
As with most problems in life, when viewed in their entirety, they can seem a little daunting and insurmountable. It seems the trick is to break the problem down. A bit like being faced by a pint of Guinness. At first glance it might seem quite a challenging prospect to lower all of this liquid down ones throat. However, sip by sip and step by step, it can actually be done. And lo and behold, when the first one is safely down the hatch it becomes that bit easier to manage a second one.
And so it is with climate change, the only way out of this particular mess, as has often been said of late, is for individuals to make small lifestyle changes. For the next trip to London My Good Self intends to travel by boat and train.
When people make changes, the world of business and finance has a tendency to follow. It’s quite a strange phenomenon. When the good folk of business and finance change direction then, for some unknown reason, our good friends the politicians seem to move along gently in their slipstream. And often not so gently.
My Good Self finds these trends to be most perplexing at times. I wonder why they happen. Then, as if struck by an emission from Donald Trumps hairspray, the single word answer comes to me.
