We will find out this afternoon if President Trump will pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate change treaty, which was never ratified by the Senate.
For those who are unaware, the reason it was not put before the Senate was because it would not have been approved. The former president then went into secret deals with the U.N. to transform a former treaty into the Paris “agreement”, thus enabling the former administration to falsely claim Senate approval was not necessary.
We owe the other signatories to the agreement nothing. They were complicit in violating our Constitution.
It was an illicit end-run around the Senate and for that reason alone, it must go, but it’s not the only reason.
Mark Steyn blows away the entire climate change argument. It is a grand redistribution scheme.
Gina McCarthy Admitted It Will Have No Significant Effect on the Climate
EPA chief Gina McCarthy admitted the agency’s sweeping climate regulations of fossil fuel fired plants will have no perceptible impact on the climate.
She admitted that the Clean Power Plan “is not about end of pipe controls.” The rule, she said, is about “driving investment in renewables…, [and] advancing our ongoing clean energy revolution”.
Most concerning is that McCarthy said, “That’s what… reinventing a global economy looks like.”
Then-EPA chief Gina McCarthy told Rep. Smith during testimony in May of last year that the rule was “enormously beneficial.” How is it beneficial? She claimed the 1/100th of a degree difference over a hundred years meets the definition of “enormously beneficial”.
The only real benefit is to control us and lead us into an unaccountable global economy.
McCarthy admitted on a number of occasions that the regulations were to take the place of laws Obama couldn’t get past the legislature. She also admitted it was to soften the way for the oppressive Paris agreement.
The only people paying the real price in this agreement is the United States.
The Seeds of Global Warming Began With a Lunatic
Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Germany, is one of the lunatics behind the climate change extremism. He is the one who won the left-leaning Pope to the cause.
He is a radical regressive who wrote books that insist governments must not allow temperatures to rise more than 2 degrees higher than the start of the industrial revolution.
Of global warming, and as a proponent of population control, he has said, “In a very cynical way, it’s a triumph for science because at last we have stabilized something –- namely the estimates for the carrying capacity of the planet, namely below 1 billion people.”
He has called for an “Earth Constitution” to transcend even the “U.N. Charter.” Along with that there would be a “Global Council” of elite elected by “all the people on Earth.” There would be a “Planetary Court” which would be “transnational” with appeals accepted from everyone, especially if there are violations of the Earth Constitution.
One can easily imagine what this would do to our U.S. Constitution and our sovereignty.
Schellnhuber advised Pope Francis and much of the encyclical reflects Schellnhuber’s views – it’s the same hyperbole but without terms like “Earth Constitution” and “Planetary Court” though the concepts are clearly there.
Radical communist Naomi Klein, who has admitted the goal of climate change is to get rid of Capitalism, is an advisor to the Pope.
