LA Times: We’re Ceding Global Leadership On Hotcoldwetdry To China Or SOmething

This is the same China that is known to cheat on agreements of all types, and is still slapping up tons of coal fired power plants, but, apparently people aren’t allowed to hold the wrong opinions

Through climate change denial, we’re ceding global leadership to China

Remember when China was the climate-action outcast, the obstacle standing in the way of progress in the global fight against a warming planet? What a difference a few years — and an election — can make.

Over the past few weeks, world leaders, delegates to the climate change conference in Marrakech and activists everywhere have expressed alarm that, as president, Donald Trump might actually realize his “America First Energy Plan.”

Oh, no, an America first energy plan! No wonder Progressives are upset, since they tend to hate America.

Any one of the proposals would set back the environmental movement — withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, abandoning President Obama’s Clean Power Plan to reduce carbon emissions, reviving the coal industry, opening up more public land to oil and gas drilling, dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency — but together they conjure up dystopian dread. If President Trump follows through with candidate Trump’s promises, it will be all but impossible to limit global temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius.

It’d be interesting to see if, absent those policies, the temperatures actually rise.

During the Marrakech talks, the official Xinhua News agency stated, “China is playing an active role in negotiation and global governance on climate change. Self-motivated and willing to work with others to save the planet, China has taken steps, including billions of dollars of investment, to tackle climate change and provide new-energy technology.” No need to make the contrast with the U.S. more explicit.

Warmists are willing to look past all those human rights violations and treatment of women if China is pretending to care about ‘climate change.’

For China, going greener and cleaner has been driven in considerable part by environmental necessity. But at least as important, China is betting that clean energy and green technology will be what powers the global economy of the 21st century.

And they love dumping heavily devalued and subsidized solar panels and wind turbine parts on the world market, harming American workers, but, hey, they believe in Hotcoldwetdry, so Warmists heart China.

If China is right, if Chu is right, to renege on the Paris agreement, to expand oil and gas drilling, to rebuild the coal industry, to cancel federal funding for research and development of new, cleaner forms of energy — as Trump has proposed — not only will cede global leadership on climate change to China but also undermine American leadership of the global economy.

Nothing says “leadership” like a dictatorship responsible for atrocities.

Finally, if Trump’s proposals surrender the leading role played by the U.S. on climate change and in the global economy, they threaten to diminish its moral influence in the world as well.

Good grief, these people are slobbering sycophants to a brutal government. But, then, at it’s root, Warmists are progressives, who enjoy the notion of an authoritative government which heavily controls all aspects of its citizens lives.

    The elitists and the Statists are aghast because their way of doing, and thinking is in danger of being called into question……For 240 years we have essentially done the same things the same ways over and over….

    Its that old axiom repeating the same mistakes over and over and hoping for a different outcome….Its like jumping in a rushing river a 1000 times and hoping eventually you can breath water.

    Aint gonna happen…..So the Left especially but some on the right as well are aghast that Trump has the balls to call them out….call out the status Quo…call out the entrenched and the elitists…….

    So their response is to call him names, tell us were all gonna die….and hope we believe their bullshit so they can continue with their power…..

    The MSM is the most vulnerable….they have not figured out how to deal with the advent of social media and the internet…..they are desperately trying to hold on to power…..and what better way then to generate sensational headlines against Trump or anyone for that matter………gotta keep selling those papers…..

    Trump is a demagogue bilking uneducated white nationalists, stoking their fears of non christians, Blacks, Muslims, scientists, immigrants and gays by spreading lies, promising a return to time when their white supremacy was unquestioned.

    There, fixed it for ya’.
