Pulling Out Of Non-Binding Paris Accord Will Cause The Planet To Fry Or Something

When it comes to Donald Trump pulling the U.S. out of the foolish Paris Climate Agreement that Obama agreed to, Liberals are sounding like their normal high school drama queen selves. Case in point: here’s CNN’s Mark Lynas

Trump’s stupidity on climate change will galvanize environmentalists

Withdrawing from the Paris climate accord is about the only predictable — even rational — move that President Trump has made since taking office.

Following embarrassing reversals on the Mexican wall, the Muslim immigration ban and other signature policies, he sees rejecting accepted orthodoxy on climate change as an easy deliverable to please his populist base.

Too bad it fries the planet. He was elected on this pledge, and he plans to deliver.

Fries the planet! From tiny increases in CO2. Despite there being essentially statistically insignificant warming for almost two decades in opposition to 95% of the computer models, and very little over the past few years, which is still not in agreement with the models. In fact, virtually nothing that’s been predicted has materialized. Wildfires are not worse, nor are thunderstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, rainfall, droughts, snow has not become a thing of the past (of course, Warmists are now blaming snow on warming.) The Arctic hasn’t melted down, nor has Greenland, and the area which is showing big calving in Antarctica is from volcanic activity under the ice.

World leaders, who are super enthused to implement more Big Government and taxes/fees, are condemning Trump. Let them ruin their own economies. Suddenly, Liberals like Goldman-Sachs for slamming the move. Well, let GS implement their own company killing climate rules. Democrats are plotting revolution or something. Al Gore and his oversized carbon footprint had hissy fits, as did John Kerry and all his McMansions. The moonbattery has been epic

U.S. states, major companies break with Trump’s decision to exit the climate deal

Thirty states and scores of companies said Thursday that they would press ahead with their climate policies and pursue lower greenhouse gas emissions, breaking sharply with President Trump’s decision to exit the historic Paris climate accord.

In a pointed rebuttal to Trump’s announcement in the rose garden of the White House, New York’s governor unveiled a plan to invest $1.5 billion in renewable energy and energy efficiency on Thursday, the largest ever procurement of renewable energy by an American state.

Meanwhile, more than two dozen big companies — including Apple, Morgan Stanley, and Royal Dutch Shell — urged Trump not to exit the Paris treaty on Thursday.

Of course, California is doing their nutty part. Not sure where they’ll get the money, since their single payer health system plan will bankrupt them. Many cities have Big Plans. Guess what? That’s the way it should be, per the Constitution. If states, municipalities, and private entities want to Do Something, go for it. This has no place in the federal government.

Of course, what will they actually do? It certainly won’t be voluntarily practicing what they preach. Don’t expect most companies to make big changes which hurt their productivity and bottom dollar. But, hey, if they create the next big clean energy, great! That’s the way it shoudl work. Cities and states will use the carrot and stick approach. The stick is lots of restrictive rules, regs, and laws (which never seem to bother the rich people who push this the hardest) along with taxes and fees (again, they don’t bother the rich who push it), then the carrot, which is a percentage refund back to citizens who’ve seen their energy and living costs rise. Which makes them more dependent on Government. Funny how that works out, eh?

In reality, it’s probably 16 states or less, since 33 are controlled by Republican governors, 16 by Dems, and 1 independent. But, hey, let’s see those Dems work their magic. Show us the way. Practice what they preach. Act like it’s a crisis, rather than an excuse to implement Progressivism (nice fascism).

    Best argument ever for exiting the agreement. It wasn’t needed as the states and companies are perfectly able to do it on their own without the federal government paying billions into a world slush fund.

    17% of Americans agree with you and trump. No major corporation, no national or international scientific organization, and no major religion, agrees with you and trump. Even the majority of Republicans disagree with you.

    The Earth is warming from CO2 humans have been adding to the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels. We are already seeing the effects from this warming, and there is no reason to expect the warming to stop unless we (humans) slow CO2 emissions. In addition, economists disagree with trump (he lied to you) that transitioning away from a carbon based energy economy to “renewables” will harm economies. Despite its immense subsidies, coal is dying, not from regulations but because natural gas and renewables are cheaper AND pollute much less.

    trump continues the conservative drive to build a bridge to the 19th Century. All to appease his hard-core base. He prefers the applause and love of a few over the respect of billions.

      Jeff, that is the 17% of Americans that got Trump elected, elections have consequences, live with it.

      I’m old enough to remember when President Carter tried to force the United States onto the metric system. Government contracts came out in — for me — cubic meters rather than cubic yards, but it all fell by the wayside, because the American people simply didn’t accept it.

      You can make all sorts of arguments that the metric system is better than the English measures we like, but when the people were pressed with having the metric system forced upon them, they simply didn’t use it.

      The left are always astounded when they try to force people to do something, for their own good, don’t you know, and they encounter resistance. You’d think that the left would have learned this by now, but let’s face it: liberals are basically stupid.

    Liberals DO care more about Paris than Pittsburgh.

  4. david7134 says:

    When will someone point out that the Paris deal was an illegal treaty that was not passed in the accepted way by the corrupt Obama regime.

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    Well, it sure “heated up” the stock market today.
    Does that count?

  6. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    Getting elected doesn’t immunize trumpy against criticism.

    Germany, Japan, China, India and Brazil thank trumpy for leaving an economic void for them to fill. Citizens in those countries will be manufacturing smart cars, batteries, solar panels and windmills, and coding the software to run it all. trumpy’s cult followers in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ohio will get to nurse their addictions as other countries take the jobs that trumpy promised.

    • Dana says:

      Really? There’s nothing in the President canceling US participation in the agreement that forces American manufacturers to not try to reduce carbon emissions, or to not try to take advantage of whatever economic opportunities might appear. It just means that the government won’t force compliance.

    • david7134 says:

      Jeff,
      You really did not understand or know a thing about the Paris deal. Just like you don’t understand Obamacare. And just like you don’t understand most every topic here.

    Also there is nothing, and I mean nothing stopping the rich European countries from spending money to help the planet. They can do whatever they want, they have the money, they don’t need American dollars.
