Thank God Trump Got Us Out of Paris Climate Shakedown Deal

Yesterday French President Emmanuel Macron held a “One Planet Summit” to mark the second anniversary of the idiotic Paris Climate Accord–an agreement that was nothing more than an elaborate shakedown/theft of American money. How do we know? Because the big promoters of the accord–France and Germany–refuse to put up their own money to fund the goal of lowering carbon dioxide emissions. Yeah, they wanted the U.S. to be the patsies paying for the party. Back in June President Trump pledged to pull the U.S. out of the Paris farce (see Three Cheers! Trump Pulls U.S. Out of Horrible Paris Climate Treaty). The United States would have been punished economically–transferring billions of our taxpayer dollars to other countries for generations to come. All in the name of supposedly stopping global warming. China and India would get to add as many coal-fired electric plants as they want, while we would have to close ours down, essentially shifting our jobs to other countries. The deal was bad from the beginning. Even if we had stayed in and even if all countries lived up to their obligations (i.e. paid their “fair” share) under the treaty, the projected difference in lowering global temps by 2100 would have been 0.17 Celsius–little more than one-tenth of a degree. After spending hundreds of billions of dollars. THIS PLAN WAS INSANE from the start. But you won’t learn that from mainstream media. So Marcon threw a big party to honor the treaty (with people arriving in their carbon-belching planes and trains and trucks and cars and SUVs). Even those who support this flummery and yesterday’s big party could not avoid pointing out that with the U.S. gone, nobody is willing to pay for the party…
