In a post sighted on the facebook wall of Former President John Mahama:
“I’ve been watching CNN reports of fire raging across twelve Western US States. This has covered the whole western seaboard in smoke and haze. Also this year, dust from the Sahara Desert blew across the Atlantic and reached as far as the United States.
More hurricanes and typhoons are being born due to warming of the seas and these are pounding the Carribean and US, and on the other side of the world, Asian and SE Asian nations.
It is difficult to understand how the US Government does not see that its withdrawal from the Climate Change Agreement and subsequent repeal of regulations limiting emissions and other environmental controls threaten our whole planet and the US itself. And it abdicates its leadership role in the fight against climate change “.
