It’s Official: Trump Announces Pullout From Non-Binding Paris Agreement

Good news

(CNN) President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord Thursday, a major step that fulfills his campaign promises while seriously dampening global efforts to curb global warming.

The decision amounts to a rebuttal of the worldwide effort to pressure Trump to remain a part of the agreement, which 195 nations signed onto. Foreign leaders, business executives and Trump’s own daughter lobbied heavily for him to remain a part of the deal, but ultimately lost out to conservatives who claim the plan is bad for the United States.

“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris climate accord but being negotiations to reenter either the Paris accord or an entirely new transaction under terms that are fair to the United States,” Trump said from the White House Rose Garden. “We’re getting out.”

In triggering the official withdrawal procedures, Trump will spark a lengthy process that won’t conclude until November 2020 — the same month he’s up for reelection, ensuring the issue becomes a major topic of debate in the next presidential contest.

Except, no one will really care, just like no one really cared in 2016, 2012, 2008, 2004, 2000, 1996, etc. CNN, nor most members of the Cult of Climastrology, are taking this well. Here’s one hot-take

I’ll have more on it later, hopefully with a transcript. I have a Twitter moments embedded in the single post

    Excellent! Another promise kept and a blow to the America-hating globalist left.

    “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” the president said

    Yes!
    Thank you Mr. President.
    Nice to have a real President who cares more about Americans than the last one.

    Congratulations!!!! You lucky Americans. This is extremely good news for you!
    Trump’s speech talks about the money transfers from productive societies to non-productive ones.
    The media is silent on that.
    I am paying about 700.00 per year in carbon tax taxes in Ontario. More is on the way. Where does it go?
    These taxes are implemented by those politicians who know nothing about climate change.

    You need to listen to Trump’s speech directly not second hand to hear information you would not hear otherwise.
    Wow! Trump turns out to be a great politician after all. One you who keeps his promises.
    You Americans should hold your head high today! I am envious.

    • These taxes are implemented by those politicians who know nothing about climate change.

      Yeah, but, for their purposes, they don’t need to know anything about it, because it’s about taking more of your money while also increasing their hold on citizens.

    LOL. He didn’t want the rest of the world laughing at the US.

    The essence of the Paris extortion and the whole Global Warming/Climate Change* swindle is the idea that mankind has so damaged the planet with CO2 that if we (Meaning the US and NOT any other nation) doesn’t stop our economic engine, then the world as we know it is destroyed.

    The problem with that supposition is that reality gets in the way. The biggest problem for the true believers in this cult is the fact that we remember their forecasts, such as Al Gore’s proclamation that the Arctic would be ice free year round in five years (That was over a decade ago) and yet we still have an Ice cap covering the Arctic every year. NBCABCCBS proclaimed that New York City would be underwater by the year 2016, yet here we are a year after their dead by date and still Wall Street is high and dry.

    After so many years and so many failed forecasts I’ve noticed a new trend, instead of giving up on their always wrong idea, they instead quit making forecasts in the 5 to 10 year range and now only do 50-100 year forecasts. This relieves their accuracy problem and still gets them the headlines of more doom and gloom with which to convince the people to sacrifice their money and their lives on the alter of Global Warming/Climate Change.

    As a weather forecaster I used to teach new forecasters this truth about forecasts:

    “The essence of a good theory is you should be able to take it’s suppositions and make reliable forecasts based on the theory – if it is a sound theory – if not the forecasts will always fail”

    If President Obama and the Democrats believed that the Paris Agreement was just so vital and necessary, why didn’t the President and his minions negotiate the agreement in such a form as to requite the Senate to ratify it as a treaty, or both Houses of Congress to ratify it as an executive-legislative agreement?

    Yes, of course that was a rhetorical question: it was negotiated in that form because Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrats knew that the Senate singly, or the Congress as a whole, would reject the agreement. Thus, they simply held on to the belief that the President could, on his own authority, commit the United States to an international agreement that would cost every American unknown scads of money. They assumed that the odious Hillary Clinton would succeed President Obama, and thus the President would continue, this time on her own, to commit the United States to an international agreement that would cost every American unknown scads of money.

    The Democratic Party really needs to change its name; democracy is the last thing that they want; having the Congress to actually approve such things? Ridiculous!

    I’m old enough to remember when our second-worst President signed the Panama Canal Treaty, even though everybody just knew that the Senate would reject it. Yet, President Carter persevered, lobbied, cajoled, and just plain fought, and, lo and behold, he managed to get the Senate to ratify those treaties (there were actually two separate agreements) 68-32. Our worst-ever President didn’t have the balls to even try.
