Last year, after President Trump pulled America out of the Paris Climate Agreement, the professional alarmists of the world went into full distress mode.
DNC Chairman Tom "Filthy mouth" Perez said withdrawing from the agreement would "be a global embarrassment."
House Minority Leader Nancy "I forgot Chuck Schumer's name" Pelosi said President Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord was "a stunning abdication of American leadership and a grave threat to our planet's future."
Socialist millionaire Bernie Sanders probably got the same talking points as Nancy, because he said, "President Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement is an abdication of American leadership and an international disgrace."
Even Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said, “We are deeply disappointed that the United States federal government has decided to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. Canada is unwavering in our commitment to fight climate change and support clean economic growth. Canadians know we need to take decisive and collective action to tackle the many harsh realities of our changing climate."
In case you're not catching what they're all putting down, these affluent liberals each proclaimed to the world that Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement would lead to natural disasters and excessive pollution. We’re all gonna die and it’s Trump’s fault, according to them.
That all happened last year. So what's taken place since then?According to a new report, every one of these really smart and influential people was blatantly wrong with their predictions.
The recently released June 2018 BP Statistical Review of Global Energy report highlights details on America's C02 emissions in 2017. According to the report, 2017 was the ninth time during the 21st century that the good ol' US-of-A had the largest decline of C02 emissions on planet Earth. The report explained that carbon emissions from energy use in the US are the lowest since 1992. That was the same year the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was first launched.
So if we’re the best at reducing, who leads the world in creating carbon emissions? Well, it turns out the answer to that question is China, followed by India. I'm sure it won't shock to you learn that both of those countries are involved in the Paris Climate Agreement.
In fact, last year, after Trump withdrew from the agreement, Time Magazine (who famously declared Adolf Hitler the person of the year in 1938) said China would now lead the world in reducing carbon emissions. It turns out, they were 100% wrong.
The political leaders of the countries involved in the Paris Climate Agreement were all convinced Americans would burn up and die after Trump made his decision. But a year later, not only are they wrong, but most of those countries aren't even living up to their own promise.
A report by the Climate Action Network Europe (CAN Europe) says twenty-three out of the 28 European Member states of the Paris Climate Accord scored poorly on a review of their commitments under the Paris Agreement. The E.U. promised a 40% cut in its emissions below their 1990 levels by 2030.
CAN Europe says "all E.U. countries are off target: they are failing to increase their climate action in line with the Paris Agreement goal. No single E.U. country is performing sufficiently in both ambition and progress in reducing carbon emissions."
So, to review:
- America is doing more to reduce emissions than every country in the Paris Climate Agreement and we’re doing it voluntarily, with no contractual agreement requiring this effort.
- The leaders of the countries in the Paris Climate Agreement either lied or just didn't keep their promise when they said they’d reduce emissions.
- The American liberals who attacked Trump for leaving the agreement were also wrong, but what else is new?
- Time Magazine actually said China was going to lead the world in reducing carbon emissions. A year later they're more wrong than ever before.
So Trump’s America is the most eco-friendly nation on Earth and we’re not even being ruled by globalists. Put that in your Ford F150 and smoke it.
Officials extinguish garbage fire among debris following a demonstration late on December 14, 2009 in the Christiania squat in Copenhagen at the UN climate summit. Danish police stormed a giant Copenhagen squat, firing tear gas and arresting 210 demonstrators who had set alight barricades, police said. Police faced demonstrators' petrol-bombs as they moved in to tackle the blazes, as ministers from all over the globe gathered nearby to hash out a deal to tackle climate change.A large number of Danish and foreign climate activists participated Monday in a party in Copenhagen's 'free city' of Christiania, a refuge for hippies and artists since the 1970s.
