(National Sentinel) Climate Change Hoax: The White House is pushing back against published claims that the Trump administration has no real intention of withdrawing from the Paris Climate accords, which are nothing more than a massive scheme to transfer wealth from rich countries to poor ones.
“There has been no change in the United States’ position on the Paris agreement. As the President has made abundantly clear, the United States is withdrawing unless we can re-enter on terms that are more favorable to our country,” the White House statement said.
That’s not exactly a denial. But it is in line with what President Donald J. Trump and the White House said when the president announced the U.S. would leave the accords, as Fox News reminds us:
Four months ago the White House said it would either renegotiate or withdraw from the climate treaty, which has been signed by 189 of the world’s 192 nations.
Plus, this doesn’t jibe with what others are saying:
The Trump administration’s shift from rejection to being willing to renegotiate the landmark accord or negotiate a new deal came during a meeting of more than 30 ministers led by Canada, China and the European Union in Montreal, the Journal said.
“The U.S. has stated that they will not renegotiate the Paris accord, but they will try to review the terms on which they could be engaged under this agreement,” European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete said.
Any news that the administration is still considering remaining in accords which 1) are based on a hoax; and 2) really are nothing but a giant wealth transfer scheme is troubling.
First daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, are said to be backers of the accords — and that’s very likely why Trump is even reconsidering the U.S. position.
But he listens to them at his — and the country’s — peril, as experts on the accords have warned.
“Claiming that 193 countries signed on is a meaningless statement, which is likely why it’s made. The meaningful way to view it is that 193 countries agreed that the U.S. should harm itself and to gladly pay on Tuesday for the U.S. to harm itself today,” Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and a leading critic of the Paris pact, noted the Washington Times. “There’s a stark difference between agreeing to sign on to Paris and agreeing to do something, to undertake pain. In essence, they rented their signature for the promise of Paris-related wealth transfers. But for them to promise to do anything beyond take our money and impose the agenda, too, would really cost us.”
The fact is, if climate change/global warming was a real thing actually caused by human activity, then the cuts would gladly be made by all countries involved; their emissions would not be subjected to ransom payments.
This is one campaign promise the president needs to keep. There are other ways to remain engaged with the rest of the world without it costing the United States trillions of dollars in the coming years.
