Trump Pulls Out of Paris Accords

 

Trump kept a campaign promise and pulled out of the Paris Climate Change Accords.  The reaction on the left in this country was apocalyptic and amusing to watch.  The biggest humbug on the planet today is global warming.  Among global elites the belief in climate change is one part religious faith to two parts cynicism.  A minority embrace climate change with a religious fervor.  The cynics find it useful for fund raising, to enlist foot soldiers in political crusades, and to engage in Eco-profiteering, Al Gore serving as the model for this.

The Paris Accords allowed global elites to be on the side of the green angels while committing their nations to nothing.  The US under Obama, waging war against its domestic coal industry, was one of the few nations taking this tripe seriously.  For the junk science of global warming Americans were to lose jobs while India was allowed to double its emissions and China had to do nothing at all until 2030.  No wonder this agreement was never submitted to the Senate where it would have been voted down overwhelmingly.

Donald Trump, to his everlasting credit, refused to go along with this nonsense.  What he did was the green equivalent of spitting in the Holy Water for a Catholic, and Trump was obviously having a good time while doing it.   Pope Francis hardest hit. Well played Mr. President, well played!
