On Paris accords, remember first-world nations had head start on exploiting fossil fuels

Letter to Peninsula Daily News from OCA member Bill Marsh of Port Angeles:

When President Donald Trump told us June 1 of his decision to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement, he referred to how China and India were less limited by it than the U.S.

Our president conveniently seemed to forget that the agreement was an attempt to be fair to countries that have not had a century or more lead time in exploiting fossil fuels, as we and Europe have.

I haven’t forgotten.

I hope readers won’t either.
