Some Paris Treaty Truths
Did you listen to Trump’s speech on why he’s pulling America out of the Paris Climate Agreement? If not, you need to so you have the facts…
If you’ll listen to this so you’re not being manipulated by the media who wants to only report bits and pieces of it to support their globalization agenda, you’ll understand why we had to pull America out of this lopsided agreement.
If you listen to it you’ll notice that Trump is more than willing to renegotiate this agreement so it’s fair for America and American taxpayers. As it stands, it’s a terrible deal for America, which Trump very clearly explains in his speech.
But the countries who would’ve benefited from America’s resources, jobs we would’ve lost and the many billions of dollars we would’ve had to pay refuse to renegotiate the agreement. They wanted it lopsided. They wanted to cripple the American economy because they know a strong America economy will not move towards globalization. This is why Obama diligently strived to greatly damage our economy.
This means the other countries who would’ve gotten our jobs, received money from America will no longer be able to take our jobs and take our money. It’s not surprising these countries are pissed! While Obama was handing America, our jobs, our money and our sovereignty over to other countries, Trump said “NO”, it’s not in America’s best interest, and it’s not!
Here are a few things written into the agreement:
- This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States, Trump stated in his speech.
- An analysis of the Paris agreement done by climate scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology projected that even if the signatories to the deal met all their pledges, it would result in a reduction in global temperatures of just 0.2°C by 2100. That fact alone should give climate activists pause. They are promoting a climate agreement that will have virtually no impact on the climate.
- Hello, everyone… these countries just wanted America’s money, jobs and sovereignty under the disguise of “climate control”.
- China and India joined the Paris agreement in 2016, but neither have plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. China said it would “peak” emissions by 2030 and India has been promised foreign aid to boost green energy production. “They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us,” Trump said of China.
- China and India have plans to drastically increase coal production to fuel their growing economies. America is required to end coal production. “The agreement doesn’t eliminate coal jobs, it just transfers those jobs out of America,” Trump said, “and ships them to other countries.”
- As part of the Paris accord, the U.S. and other developed countries promised to give $100 billion in climate aid to poor countries by 2020. But it’s always America that gives the most while others pay little or nothing just like the NATO agreement where only 3 of 28 countries pay the required 2% of GDP, and most pay less than 1% or nothing at all.
Follow the money. Pulling out will be huge for our economy, versus helping other countries putting them ahead of America. Where’s your loyalty… To America or to other countries?
The Cost To America
With all of the discussions about the Paris Climate Agreement and what it’s really about, Breitbart wrote an article discussing what this agreement would’ve cost American’s. It’s not surprising that the other countries who would’ve created a financial windfall from American Taxpayers and stealing our jobs are pissed that America dropped out of this very bad deal that would’ve also cost us our sovereignty. We all need to thank God that Trump is President and not Hillary.
Dropping out of the agreement will let the U.S. avoid several deleterious effects of the agreement.
- Goodbye to ‘American Last.’ The Paris agreement was basically an attempt to halt climate change on the honor system. Its only legal requirements were for signatories to announce goals and report progress, with no international enforcement mechanism. As a result, it was likely that the United States and wealthy European nations would have adopted and implemented severe climate change rules while many of the world’s governments would avoid doing anything that would slow their own economies. The agreement basically made the U.S. economy and Europe’s strongest economies sacrificial lambs to the cause of climate change.
- Industrial Carnage. The regulations necessary to implement the Paris agreement would have cost the U.S. industrial sector 1.1 million jobs, according to a study commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. These job losses would center in cement, iron and steel, and petroleum refining. Industrial output would decline sharply.
- Hollowing Out Michigan, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. The industrial carnage would have been concentrated on four states, according to the Chamber of Commerce study. Michigan’s GDP would shrink by 0.8 percent and employment would contract by 74,000 jobs. Missouri’s GDP would shrink by 1 percent. Ohio’s GDP would contract 1.2 percent. Pennsylvania’s GDP would decline by 1.8 percent and the state would lose 140,000 jobs.
- Smashing Small Businesses, Helping Big Business. Big businesses in America strongly backed the Paris climate deal. In fact, the backers of the climate deal reads like a “who’s who” of big American businesses: Apple, General Electric, Intel, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, General Mills, Walmart, DuPont, Unilever, and Johnson & Johnson. These business giants can more easily cope with costly regulations than their smaller competitors and many would, in fact, find business opportunities from the changes required. But smaller businesses and traditional start-ups would likely be hurt by the increased costs of compliance and rising energy costs.
- Making America Poorer Again. A Heritage Foundation study found that the Paris agreement would have increased the electricity costs of an American family of four by between 13 percent and 20 percent annually. It forecast a loss of income of $20,000 by 2035. In other words, American families would be paying more while making less.
- Much Poorer. The overall effect of the agreement would have been to reduce U.S. GDP by over $2.5 trillion and eliminate 400,000 jobs by 2035, according to Heritage’s study. This would exacerbate problems with government funding and deficits, make Social Security solvency more challenging, and increase reliance on government’s spending to support households.
The Paris deal was, in short, a disaster for America and a nothing-burger for climate.
Was It An Agreement or A Treaty?
From Michael Farris earlier today (I copied this from a Facebook post):
Should Trump withdraw from the Paris Accords?
I have a degree (with honors) from the University of London in Public International Law. This includes the study of treaties.
I also have a Juris Doctorate from the US and 40 years of practice primarily in Constitutional Law and 17 years of teaching Constitutional Law at the collegiate level.
I am qualified to evaluate the intersection of treaty law and constitutional law as it pertains to the Paris Accords.
This document is a treaty in international law. It has 100% of the legal attributes of a treaty. If you examine the UN website all the reporting on this accord treats it as a treaty.
Under our Constitution, treaties must be ratified by the United States Senate.
Obama claimed to have unilaterally ratified the treaty. He had no such power.
The United States is not legitimately a party to this treaty. Thus, President Trump is not withdrawing from the Paris Accords. A nation must be a party to withdraw.
President Trump is simply giving the world notice that this act of Obama acting as a dictator was not valid.
The fact that Obama refused to send it to the Senate is all the evidence you need to know that it is an unwise treaty. If it was good for America, it could get ratified.
In all of the hyperbole, the person who acted irresponsibly is the one who circumvented the Constitution and attempted to impose international control over this country all by himself.
Now you know the straight story.
Here’s What It Was Really All About…
Its a plan that Obama and the globalist hierarchy supposedly created to reduce the Global Warming effect caused by human activity by 2030. This is what they want you to believe.
The Paris agreement created this United Nations climate slush fund, largely underwritten by American taxpayers.
In his final year in office, President Obama contributed $500 million from the State Department to this fund on two separate occasions. He did it without authorization from Congress… This is TEXTBOOK Redistribution of wealth.
We know the Globalists want to destroy America and make it just one of many countries, no stronger or richer than anyone else.
Climate Change means the Government can put 100’s of 1000’s of pages of regulations on energy production and consumption.
They can charge a ridiculous Tax from you and send the money out of the US to other countries redistributing your money to the UN to distribute to whom they choose.
They lie and get you feeling responsible, then tax the hell out of you.
They create subsidies for the poor, and charge the middle class 4 times what they pay now in the name of “Sacrifice for the greater good”. Sounds like your, “You can keep your doctor speech”, right?
Karl Marx said to create true socialism you must use political correctness and guilt to control health care and energy. If you can control these items you can destroy capitalism and replace with socialism.
That is what this is all about, Obama care and Climate change, destroying the middle class and creating a subservient populism under government control.
Trump put you, me and the rest of the ignorant American’s first, protecting us when we don’t know or are being lied about what the true underlying motives of the Paris Climate Agreement was really about.
