Trump Is Worse Than Everyone Thought On ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

So, Donald Trump gave a speech on energy Thursday, or so I hear. I was actually watching the speech live, but tuned out when he wasn’t seeming to get to the energy part, just typical rambling by Donald on this and that and the other. But, Mashable supposedly listened to it, or, most likely, read someone else’s story on the speech. Regardless, in an “analysis” by Andrew Freeman

Trump on climate: He’s even worse than we thought

No one expected Donald Trump to give a single energy speech and suddenly pivot to the left on global warming, after a record of expressing skepticism that global warming exists on several prior occasions.

However, few of even the most die-hard, wary environmentalists likely expected what they got on Thursday, when Trump both effectively clinched the nomination and gave a dismissive energy speech in North Dakota.

The speech amounted to a broadside against the Obama administration’s climate and energy policies, as well as Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s proposals, in addition to climate science and energy market realities.

Well, that is a good thing in my book. We need to use our own energy sources, including oil and natural gas. Any Warmist who doesn’t like it should give up their own use of oil immediately.

Fortunately for Paris agreement fans, Trump cannot unilaterally cancel it, but he can mortally wound it.

Freeman doesn’t say why, he simply just continues a meme being propagated by Warmists. In fact, Trump, if he wins the presidency, can simply issue an executive order cancelling America’s participation. For all intent purposes, that is how America joined the Paris climate accord. It was never ratified by the Senate, hence, it has no force of law.

Whether a President Trump would pull out of the accords is another question.

Trump went so far as to imply that climate change is a “phony” environmental concern when he said:

“A Trump administration will focus on real environmental challenges, not the phony ones we’ve been looking at.”

This is one of the few things I like about Trump. However, I do not trust him, as there have been vacillations on the subject. He is right, though, that we should deal with real environmental issues, not this phony manufactured on on ‘climate change’, which is really just a left wing attempt to increase taxes, along with more governmental control of people, energy, private institutions, and the economy, mostly at the federal level.

Instead of speaking truth to power and saying that the glory days of “drill, baby, drill” may be gone, as a market-based transition to renewable energy continues, he chose to throw red meat to the crowd.

As opposed to Democrats like Hillary and Bernie, who yammer on about ‘climate change’ before getting on fossil fueled planes and SUVs.

This speech effectively put Trump at the top of the enemies list for every climate advocate, business executive and world leader committed to taking the climate threat seriously. The reality is that Trump’s policies as he presented them today cannot be implemented if we are to have any hope of containing global warming to a somewhat manageable level.

The policies as written and pushed by most Warmists would have a negligible effect on the climate (in theory) to start with, so, ignoring them won’t change the end results, particularly since Mankind has only a tiny effect on global effects of a warming climate, which, surprise, has been happening off and on throughout the Holocene. But, hey, good news, Trump has made the top of the enemies list! Fascists/authoritarians love their enemies lists.

    No one, save the odious jimhoft, can tell more lies in a sentence than Teach!

    Mankind is CAUSING the rapid warming of the past century. One can argue the impacts on mankind of mankind-caused warming but it’s silly to deny that it’s happening.

    At this moment in time, the Earth is warmer than at any time during the Holocene, and significantly – the Earth continues to warm! Five years ago, head in the sand denialists said, “Warming? What warming?”. Today denialists deny the cause. Tomorrow they will deny the solutions.

    We grok that facts are anathema to a Covian, who shriek like banshees when exposed to one, but the early Holocene climatic “optimum” was not as warm as now (the “optimum” lasted 5000 years after Earth exited the most recent ice age – during that time mean surface varied little). The Earth started a gradual cool down about 5000 years ago, and had cooled some 0.8C (or 0.016C per century) during that time. The so-called medieval warm period was a tiny blip during the cool down. The current rapid warming is occurring at 0.8C/century! It’s warming 500 times faster than the slow “natural” cooling occurred! And denialists can’t even imagine a physical mechanism causing this weird warming event?? (N.B. – the warming rate for the past fifty years has doubled to 1.6C per century.)

    Mankind is causing the Earth to warm rapidly. The climate scientists and climate modelers have been right all along and the denialists wrong. The question is, what, if anything, should mankind do about it?

    Like anything the pathetic Trump says, his position on climate must be regarded as temporary.

      Then why?……. Why did they lie about the “warming”? Remember the East Anglia email scandal (different from the Killary email scandal)? Then why?….. Why does Michigan enjoy the Great Lakes? Seems there was massive warming involved there. Then why?…. Why would we trust anything from a proven liar like owebama? Then why?…. Why are Our homes and businesses lit by poisonous mercury bulbs, instead of harmless incandescents? GW or money? Too many evil people behind the GC, GW, CC, GD schemes, to take it seriously!

    – Prove it.

    It is proven to the satisfaction of those that understand science.

    What proof are you looking for? Be specific, please.

    “…those who understand science…”

    You mean…like those who say XX and XY people are just SOCIAL CONSTRUCTS?!??!?!

    BITE ME, you moral, ethical,and intellectual cripple.
