Ran into this over at Jo Nova’s place:
Ergodan does his own climate maths — decides that the most significant inflatable cash cow has disappeared from the sky. The global climate suddenly looks clearer, and so Turkey pulls back from Paris accord:

“Therefore, after this step taken by the United States, our position steers a course towards not passing this from the parliament,” he said. (link)
Turkey, saving the planet, one bank account at a time.
How many other nations do the same maths but are aren’t quite so, ahem, honest?
Has this link in it:
And points at the article referenced here:
(Though Jo’s link has all the ‘tags’ left in showing how they found the story. I’ve stripped them so it just goes clean to the article).
So basically, if the $USA isn’t putting up $Buckets of $Billions, Turkey doesn’t want to come over and play. Hey, I’m great with that. Frankly, IMHO, the entire “buying Friends” operation of the State Department (and EVERY other agency handing out money for favor) needs to be canned. It does nothing but drain taxpayer dollars into the pockets of foreigners and prop up corruption.
OK, One down, 130 or so to go…
Saving the world, one empty pocket at a time…
