The Paris Accord: Bad for America
By TLB Contribuating Author
Just what is this Paris Accord? And why do the GOATs love it so much? This mysterious beast is a non-binding treaty known as the Paris Agreement (French: Accord de Paris). It falls within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance starting in the year 2020.
In other words, it’s a method to fleece United States Taxpayers out of a lot of money to pay for a hoax they perpetuated in 1970 as a coming world-ending Ice Age. Did you catch the strategic word ‘Finance?” Give them credit for evolving this creature into Global Warming and then Climate Change when the first two calamities didn’t take place.
Mankind’s Greatest Hoax: Manmade Climate Change
The Lovely Lainey drove me to Cocoa Beach to survey the shoreline. Good news readers. The water has not risen despite the scare tactics and naïve ideology of the leftists. I need to keep my faithful friends updated since my last climate change article entitled “My Glass didn’t Runneth Over” posted on February 18, 2016. My Glass didn’t Runneth Over I received a lot of heat

What the World is Saying
“Trump’s announcement is far from the final word. Legally, the United States is still in the Paris Agreement for at least the next year. As an environmental law organization, Earthjustice will continue to do everything in our power to accelerate the clean energy transition in the United States and globally. We are already working in states around the country and partners around the world. Trump’s action won’t reverse the momentum. The American people will not turn our back on climate leadership.”
“It is up to the rest of us to step forward and take the helm. My nation, the Republic of Palau, is doing just that,” writes President Tommy Remengesau in an opinion piece.
Manmade Climate Change: The Hoax Continues
Muckster: I’ll answer the question. You want answers?
Skeptic: I think I’m entitled!
Muckster: You want answers?!
Skeptic: I want the truth!
Muckster: You can’t handle the truth! We live in a world that exists on a changing climate due to many factors such as sunspots, El Niño and La Niña and natural disasters. Environmentalists trying to understand why they are morally, intellectually or scientifically superior to their inferior opponents are, themselves, using climate change as an identity crutch.
Should the United Nations Rule the United States?
This is a question that each American citizen needs to answer. This is what this “Accord” is all about. It ain’t about the climate. Period. It’s about how 194 countries can redistribute the wealth of United States taxpayers. Period. And how can they bring the United States down to their level?
Does anyone really think these 194 polluters give a hoot about whether the earth warms up 1 to 2 degrees in the next 100 years? Especially since they know this is Science Fiction. Faulty models from fake scientists who have an ideological agenda.
Why are the big dumpers, China and India, exempt until the year 2030? Does anyone really believe they will pony up in 13 years? We may have a nuclear war or ISIS may have decapitated half the world’s population by then.
Still Unresolved Issues
Keeping the temperature increase since the Industrial Revolution “below” or “well below” 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit)? Should there be a more ambitious target of 1.5 degrees Celsius? In reality, a goal of 2 degrees won’t be met.
How should the “common but differentiated responsibilities” that countries have accepted, in theory, be met in practice? Rich countries like the United States stress the word “common.” Developed countries have caused the warming of the planet, developing countries now account for nearly two-thirds of emissions. Poorer countries highlight the word “differentiated,” because they were not historically responsible for the problem. And the poorest countries want the document to emphasize they will need lots of financial and technological help to meet their goals.
Should the long-term goal be “zero greenhouse gas emissions,” “climate neutrality” or “decarbonization” when it comes to fossil fuels? Oil producers like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela have balked at the word “decarbonization,” which implies a rapid, permanent move away from fossil fuels, even though scientists are in general agreement that the world economy must shift almost exclusively to renewable sources of energy.
The United States wants all countries to agree to take steps that are “measurable, reportable and verifiable.” In the absence of a global government, this central issue of the agreement will be largely based on the honor system. America and the European Union want stringent, data-based oversight so that the world will know whether countries are meeting their targets. Many countries are resisting specifying such a quantified approach.
Should rich countries be officially responsible for financial and technological help to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change, or should all countries “in a position to do so?”
What provisions should be made for “loss and damage” suffered by countries that will suffer long-term damage to their infrastructure, health and even existence as a result of extreme weather?
