I put this in the mud pit because there are strong feeling on both sides of this argument about climate change and what can be done. No secret on my part that most of this stuff is just normal earth cycles and there is very little we can do to stop the earth from doing what the earth does naturally.

Some can not divide pollution (which is obviously bad) from climate change... They are not the same


“Getting out of Paris is the most important deregulatory action taken by the Trump administration in terms of maintaining our sovereignty and of freeing our economy from a never-ending stream of energy-rationing policies,” Ebell said via email.

“China candidly admitted in their commitment that Chinese emissions will continue to increase until 2030,” he wrote. “On the other hand, if the U.S. had stayed in Paris, the commitment undertaken by President [Barack] Obama in 2015 would be enforceable in federal courts.”



The vast majority of the climate models the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) uses as the basis for its predictions have incorrectly forecast higher temperatures repeatedly. According to an analysis by the Cato Institute, 105 of the 108 models predicted higher surface temperatures for the period between 1998 and 2014 than were actually recorded.

The IPCC has previously admitted that climate models can’t be used to accurately predict long-term changes in the climate.

Which is exactly what some of us at this site have been saying for years.. Glad the IPCC finally figured out just how flawed their models have been since the get go.

As noted in his June 1, 2017 remarks, President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement. The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy. Our results speak for themselves: U.S. emissions of criteria air pollutants that impact human health and the environment declined by 74% between 1970 and 2018. U.S. net greenhouse gas emissions dropped 13% from 2005-2017, even as our economy grew over 19 percent.

“If global warming really is a crisis, this can’t possibly be the way to solve it, because windmills and solar panels are very limited technologies. They can provide only a very small part of the energy the world needs,” said Ebell.

“But the people who are behind this push and who promote windmills and solar panels as the solution, well, what’s in it? Well, there’s a huge redistribution of wealth to the people who provide wind and solar power. Nobody would adopt these technologies without massive government subsidies and government mandates.”

Ebell points to the fact that here in the United States, the government gives tax subsidies to anybody who builds wind or solar farms, “most of the states have mandates for turning part of the electric grid over to wind and solar power.”

“So a lot of this, of what’s been done so far, I would just call it a racket. It has nothing to do with reducing emissions. It has to do with enriching people and companies who provided technology that’s commercially unviable.”

US Formally Announces Withdrawal From Paris Climate Deal

Dependent on Trump winning a second term , withdrawal won't be ratified until the day after the US election.

“Even if [Trump] follows through, it would take just 30 days for a new president to get us back in,” Gore added. “This decision is ultimately in the hands of the voters.”

The dreaded double post as I have been getting nothing but network error messages and super super super slow response time from ATS since 17:30 my time.

Even if you buy into the doomsday version of climate change I don't understand why you'd care about the Paris climate accord. It takes very little research to understand that it accomplishes nothing but further gutting of the American middle class for the purpose of globalist elites. Embrace innovation and the technology already at our fingertips. Stop waging a war with the ghost of an industrial revolution of yesteryear. It is a Pyrrhic war that cannot be won.

I'll never comprehend these environmentalists that hate the industrial revolution and capitalism when all the things they have in this world and stand for was provided to them by the industrial revolution and capitalism. It ended slavery. Brought you women's suffrage and put women in the work place (though this was mainly for economic reasons and not social reform as you've be told). It also brought forth all the innovation and advancements in science so we can try and even understand things like climate science.

Why are so many people so dead set on forcing a dark age upon the world at a time when there is so much light to embrace?

Regardless of all the surrounding hoo-haa, I'd have to say this action on Trump's part is beneficial in my eyes as it reduces by some very small degree the amount of government interference in our daily lives.

Yay Trump!

Imagine a neighborhood where everyone agrees to cut their grass. As time goes on, some are not honoring it. There is also no home owner association to back it up. Legally they can't be fined and no pressure to can be applied to them to cut it.

Meanwhile, those honoring it have to buy equipment, fuel, maintenance on equipment or just pay someone to do it. Eventually the children of home owners with tall grass realize they can't play in their yard anymore. Their neighbor that does cut their grass though is great so they all head over there and have a lot of fun.

Awesome! It's about time.

Now any other country with a little common sense can join in if they want to stop wasting money on the natural climate that our planet has gone through for billions of years. It takes a real arrogance to think we can change the climate.

Mankind needs to do what it's always done.

EVOLVE.

Don't be a science denier.

The Paris Climate Accord was designed so that poor people from rich nations would give money to rich people in poor nations.
