Power union dismisses climate change as conspiracy, hails Trump


The union representing workers at Greece’s Public Power Corporation (PPC) on Monday hailed a decision on Thursday by US President Donald Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement.

In a lengthy announcement, GENOP dismissed concerns about climate change as a “Chinese conspiracy,” adding that “there are major business interests and specific industries behind the myth of climate change.”

“A year-and-a-half after the accord was signed, a superpower, the USA (one of the signatories and specifically the country with the second highest emissions), is letting the remaining 195 nations continue with the joint action plan that was inspired by certain interests in order to bring about the end of the fossil fuel era,” GENOP said in its announcement.
