  1. LOL - the real one says:

    Waste of time. The Paris Agreement is non-binding. Bermuda does need new taxes and regulations to make living here more expensive. Opt out.

    Governments could not stop a virus but will magically stop the earth from warming with taxes and regulations. Don’t eat meat. Don’t drive your car on Sunday. Don’t travel. Eat bugs. Yada, yada, yada. Climate lockdowns are coming to save the planet.
