Why does Big Oil Continue to Support Horrible Paris CO2 Treaty?

Something has befuddled us for a long time. Why would Big Oil companies–like ExxonMobil, Shell and BP–actually support the international climate agreement that caps carbon dioxide emissions from the fuels they extract? In December 2015, then-President Barack Hussein Obama signed the Paris Agreement (otherwise known as COP21) that forfeits the national sovereignty of the United States in the name of so-called man-made global warming (see Paris Climate Treaty Signed by Obama NOT Binding on U.S.). Obama and nearly every country of the world signed the climate agreement/treaty committing the nations of the world to lower carbon dioxide emissions. You know, CO2–the stuff you exhale with every breath you take. Yeah, that stuff is supposedly warming up ole Mom Earth, catastrophically. Except it’s not. There is no empirical data that shows the earth is heating up–only doctored computer models. Satellite data shows the opposite–the average temp of Mom Earth is not heating up and hasn’t been for 20 years. Look it up. But facts aren’t what the Paris agreement was about. We can tell you what the agreement is about in two simple points: (1) transferring massive amounts of hard-earned wealth away from America to other countries, via a carbon tax; (2) banning the use of all fossil energy. On the campaign trail Donald Trump expressed the desire to opt out of the agreement (an agreement never ratified by the Senate, meaning it’s not binding). But now he’s equivocating. One reason is his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon and supporter of the agreement. Again we ask, why in the world would Tillerson and others actually support this disastrous treaty?…
