For the rest of America, get ready to cheer!
This Thursday, our president made a major move for America and his administration. He pulled us out of a really bad deal known as the Paris Accord.
It’s a non-treaty type deal that President Obama, expert at being a terrible leader, agreed to. It committed the U.S. to accomplish almost nothing — in terms of climate change — and our country paying copious amounts of money that would lead to serious economic problems.
Sounds like something Obama would agree to, right?
Anything to destroy America.
As predicted the Left lost their sh*t when Trump said ‘adios!’ to that deal… despite Trump providing the facts in a very eloquent speech.
Giving the facts to the Left probably won’t help you ‘bring them to the light’, but here are five reasons to help you argue why this was a great deal for America:
1. The Accord Was A Treaty, And President Obama Refused To Treat It Like One.President Obama joined the Paris Accord shortly before leaving office, but never sent the agreement to the Senate for ratification. There was good reason for that: it wouldn’t have been ratified. Instead, Obama simply assumed that America would now be bound by requirements to tamp down carbon emissions in serious ways. In his statement ripping Trump for pulling out of the agreement, for example, Obama stated, “the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children.” But none of that was true. Which meant that the accord was essentially symbolic, but would create a bevy of headlines about America abandoning global leadership every time we didn’t meet an arbitrary line not approved by the American people.
…4. It Let Other Countries Free-Ride. Obama said in his petulant statement, “It was bold American ambition that encouraged dozens of other nations to set their sights higher as well.” This is absolute nonsense. One of the reasons to be skeptical of the Paris Accord is that it asked nations for non-binding commitments on climate change. Non-binding. As Oren Cass pointed out at Commentary:
China committed to begin reducing emissions by 2030, roughly when its economic development would have caused this to happen regardless. India made no emissions commitment, pledging only to make progress on efficiency—at half the rate it had progressed in recent years. Pakistan outdid the rest, submitting a single page that offered to “reduce its emissions after reaching peak levels to the extent possible.” This is a definition of the word “peak,” not a commitment. … An April report by Transport Environment found only three European countries pursuing policies in line with their Paris commitments and one of those, Germany, has now seen two straight years of emissions increases. The Philippines has outright renounced its commitment. A study published by the American Geophysical Union warns that India’s planned coal-plant construction is incompatible with its own targets. All this behavior is socially acceptable amongst the climate crowd. Only Trump’s presumption that the agreement means something, and that countries should be forthright about their commitments, is beyond the pale.
5. It Put America Last. Obama and the Left have claimed for years that “green jobs” will be produced by government. There is no evidence of that happening. It’s a chimera. Van Jones, Obama’s “green jobs czar,” couldn’t point to any job creation for which he was responsible. We do know that additional regulations would cripple key industries in the United States without making up for them with these magical new “investments.” The private sector, as Obama recognizes, is already moving toward more efficient energy solutions. But this agreement wasn’t about forwarding that. It was about creating public pressure for the US government to intervene in its own economy, without requiring anything of those with whom we compete.
Despite logic and reasoning, the Liberal tree huggers of America will never hear your argument.
What’s more hilarious is Obama’s public pouting of this whole ordeal.
Trump did after all destroy his legacy.
Obama blasted Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, calling it an abdication of leadership.
He also argued the U.S. would be an economic loser because of Trump’s decision:
“The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in jobs and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack.”
Don’t believe the lies.
Take these 5 facts with you and know what Trump did was a great thing for America!
