Trump Succeeding With North Korea Could Be Bad For ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

It’s always something with members of the Cult of Climastrology, who, as noted time and time again, always have to find a way to inject their Beliefs into everything that’s going on. Add a splash of Trump Derangement Syndrome and you get

Progressive Media: Trump/North Korea Summit Could Have ‘Negative Effect on Global Warming’

With the coming North/South Korea entente you might have thought that, finally, President Donald J. Trump had achieved something even progressives would applaud.

But you’d think wrong. Already one liberal media outlet has found a fatal flaw in Trump’s scheme to bring peace to the Korean peninsula: it might make climate change worse.

Here’s the verdict of E & E News on the summit which some are arguing should earn the president a Nobel Peace Prize.

The anticipated meeting between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un could put the former real estate tycoon eye to eye with a reviled autocrat who appears more in line with global thinking on one issue: climate change. North Korea is a party to the Paris Agreement, the 2015 pact that Trump plans to withdraw the United States from despite an uproar from allies around the world.

That’s because if sanctions against North Korea are lifted, the hermit nation’s coal could flow onto the world market, with the bulk of it ending up in South Korea, Japan and China.

And, they could actually start using power, as we see deeper in the E&E article (paywalled, Watts Up With That? has a bit more of it)

Most ordinary North Koreans live without power during the day, despite the country’s status as a net energy exporter. That energy poverty kept North Korea’s greenhouse gas emissions at 63.8 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2013, while South Korea put out 673.5 MtCO2e — more than 10 times as much.

This is the kind of thing the Cult of Climastrology is worried about. Not the brutality, not the starvation, not the terrible living conditions, or any of the myriad issues which could be improved by an inflow of capital and reliable, affordable, available energy. Nope. These Warmists seem to think North Korea being one of the worst energy poverty countries in the world is awesome. You’ve all seen the North Korea at night graphics.

  1. China, Japan and South Korea didn’t stop using coal just because they couldn’t buy it from N Korea. So a net zero change to carbon if the embargo is lifted. And N Korea is a net energy exporter BECAUSE they don’t use any themselves, not despite.
