7 November 2017 (AFP) – U.S. President Donald Trump is not among the 100 heads of state and government invited to next month's climate summit in Paris, a French presidential aide said on Tuesday.

"For now, President Donald Trump is not invited," he said, while noting that representatives of the U.S. government would attend.

In June, Trump announced his decision to withdraw the United States from the historic 2015 Paris Agreement on limiting carbon emissions.

The pact calls for capping global warming at "well under" two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels, and 1.5 C if possible.

Around 800 organizations and public stakeholders will be on hand for the December 12 event to be held on Ile Seguin, an island in the Seine River southwest of Paris.

The meeting will follow the 23rd U.N. climate conference (COP23), which opened in Bonn, Germany, on Monday. [more]

    I wouldn't invite this moron to a Klu Klux Klan rally (unless he was the featured spectacle).

    Now that's a thought...
