Appropriately, President Donald Trump last week announced from the Rose Garden that he would strike a blow for U. S. sovereignty and not get us sucked into another Euro-scam to take more of our wealth. The garden setting was appropriate because it reminded us of the great benefits of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere: improving the growth of crops, forests and ornamental plants. Yet government bureaucrats have decided it’s a dangerous air pollutant—nonsense.
Remember, it is the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that was formed, almost 30 years ago, to promote the idea (theory) that man-made activities cause changing climate. And government scientists, encouraged with large grants of money, have been willing to calculate data that show future warming—not by studying actual climate dynamics, but by guessing ahead using computer-generated models with incomplete, sometimes flawed, components.
European globalists, political know-nothings in California, Hollywood air-heads, cable comics and unanchored newscasters flew to the cameras like bugs hitting a Prius windshield to spill their guts about horrible things happening if our government doesn’t join the Paris socialist elite for another fleecing of the American taxpayers.
This latest decision by President Trump “to do what’s best for America” (Why would we expect an American president to do that?) has thrown press and pundits into fits of uncontrollable anguish.
According to one Associated Press article, “abandoning the World’s chief effort to slow the tide of planetary warming, Trump was fulfilling a top campaign pledge….” (Imagine, an American president keeping his promise?—despite risking the death of the planet.)
Obama weighed in on this. He accused Trump—of all things—“absence of American leadership” and joining other nations that “reject the future.”
Trump’s decision to leave the “accord” not only “dismays allies worldwide,” but could “result in emissions of up to 3 billion tons of additional carbon dioxide a year—enough to melt ice sheets faster, raise seas higher and trigger more extreme weather,” according to the AP. BUNK!
I doubt that even the Europeans really believe this drivel, but they do know now it will be more difficult for them to con money from the U.S. for this scheme.
Back here in La-La Land Flatheads in the Conference of Mayors “strongly opposed the decision and said the nation’s mayors will continue efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming.” In other words, these idiots will continue to punish their gullible citizens with higher taxes and less comfort and safety based on a European fairy tale.
Just because a few Leftists in the EPA and Supreme Court declared that carbon dioxide is a “pollutant” doesn’t make it so. Climate scientist Dr. Roy Spencer notes in his book “The Great Global Warming Blunder”:
If it were not for the supposed threat of global warming, Al Gore and the Supreme Court would not be able to get away with their claim that carbon dioxide is a pollutant. As most of us learned in school, atmospheric carbon dioxide is just as necessary for life on Earth as oxygen. Without CO2 there would be no photosynthesis, and therefore no plants, and no animals, and no people….
But, of course, that’s the point with the enviro-Marxists, people are bad for this planet; they should pay for their evil ways.
