Donald Trump is more committed than anyone to cleaning up the environment -- at least the one Barack Obama left behind. Mopping up an eight-year mess is no easy task, but the new president kept at it yesterday, pulling America out of a dollar-sucking, job-crushing climate treaty that wouldn't have made a degree's worth of difference in the earth's temperature!
What it would have done is put 2.7 million people out of work by 2025, costing the U.S. some $3 trillion in "lost economic output." And for what? A manufactured "crisis" that crumbles under the weight of real-world evidence. Even the co-founder of Greenpeace admits there's "no scientific proof" that humans are causing global warming. Dr. Sterling Burnett is just one of the scientists who obliterates the liberals' claims. (Dr. Cal Beisner is another, who tackled the topic on Thursday's "Washington Watch.") "There is no question humans have changed the climate on a regional scale -- and not always for the better... However, the evidence suggests human greenhouse-gas emissions are having a limited impact on global climate, with virtually all the alarmists' model predictions routinely failing to match reality." (More proof here.) If you thought the holes in the ozone layer were big, you should see the ones in the Left's credibility!)
With liberal theories on thinner ice than most polar bears, President Trump did the responsible thing: he pulled America out of the Paris Climate Change Treaty. "This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining a financial advantage over the United States," he explained from the White House Rose Garden. He also announced the end to the carbon reduction targets set under Obama, "which aimed to reduce emissions by 26-28 percent in a decade," while also putting a stop to America's exorbitant contributions to the United Nations' Green Climate Fund, which he says is "costing the United States a fortune." "As someone who cares deeply about our environment, I cannot in good conscience support a deal which punishes the United States," he told reporters. "The Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States."
