Climate Change Meltdown

Opinion – I believe man-made climate change to be a massive con. At best it is unproven.

Fact – the Paris Climate Accord was non-binding, extorted billions of dollars from the US, did nothing to slow global emissions, and was not appropriately ratified in the US.

Despite this, as was predicted the far-left radicals went into full temper-tantrum mode. The best of the week:

Paris Climate Accord Meltdown

Idiotic “climate accord” – buh-bye. The far-left is in full temper tantrum mode over Trump pulling the US out of the flawed, unenforceable, corrupt Paris climate accord.

Some of the adjectives being used are: “stupid, reckless, illegal, treasonous, and planet-destroying”. Projection alert: all of these things can actually be said of the original accord, but that is what leftists do.

Here are the facts, which are kryptonite to leftist crazies:

The accord was of dubious legality in the US since Obama refused to put it in front of Congress as it is required by law if an actual treaty. He knew it would die there: that is why he took it upon himself to sign. If the left wants the US in this, put it to vote. That is how the country works.

The accord will do nothing to halt “global warm, er, climate change”. Only countries in North America and Europe would have their emissions cut, leaving the developing world and India/China to continue to pollute while growing their economies.

The accord is entirely unenforceable as is. The only mechanism to get countries to comply is moral suasion. We have seen how that works out: every nation has cheated on previous emission treaties like Kyoto.

The accord would pressure the US to pay billions to corrupt third-world nations to develop “alternative energy” sources. Bet that will work out well. It is basically extortion.

All those US CEO’s pushing for this (Tesla, Apple, Google, JPM, Exxon, ect) must know what they are talking about, right? Yeah, they are all big business corporatists who will profit mightily from government handouts. That’s right. Follow the money.

“The US needs to be a climate leader” says the left. Well, by pulling out of this farce it is being a leader.

The short story is that this is another well-aimed thumb in the eye to the elitist, globalist movement. That is why the left is so enraged. Their attempt at world order is crumbling. Bravo, President Trump.

The Worst of Leftist Academia – 2017

http://thefederalist.com/2017/06/01/5-telling-campus-outbreaks-2016-17-academic-year/

 

And as counterpoint, one of the best and funniest things to happen in academia this year. Two professors get a sham “penis paper” published in a feminist academic rag, thereby exposing “liberal” academia as a total sham.

One of the best lines: “After completing the paper, we read it carefully to ensure it didn’t say anything meaningful, and as neither one of us could determine what it is actually about, we deemed it a success.”

If I ever get a chance to meet these professors, I will buy them a drink for sure.

Papal Embarrassment

For those of you not following this, the current Pope is an avowed leftist. To him, “climate change”, nationalism, and unrestrained capitalism are bigger threats to the world than radical Islam. He cannot even bring himself to criticize Muslim terrorists. Like most leftists, he probably buys the “oppressed” label. He is often an embarrassment as a Christian leader and is questionable as to his fitness to be Pope. And I say that as a practicing Catholic. Thankfully, there is growing consternation within the church.
