Trump did a good thing by rolling back much of the harm Obama did with his Executive Order, but failed to go far enough. He did not withdraw from the Paris Climate deal, and he did not require that the EPA’s disastrous “endangerment finding ” be reconsidered.
First, Obama knew he could never get his bullshit Paris climate change agreement through the Senate and therefore signed it on his own. Thus it is not a treaty, just Obama’s unenforceable folly. Trump can cancel it on his own and should. All it does is make this country hurt our economy without any effect on global warming, even if it was real. China doesn’t have to start cutting back until some where around 2035, and in the meantime would put way more CO2 into the atmosphere than we would keep out. Thus we would be disadvantaged with no net improvement in atmospheric CO2, even if that none issue was a real problem.
More importantly, the “endangerment finding ” is a real obstacle to finally putting a stake in the heart of the socialist charade of global warming. What is the “endangerment finding ” you ask? It was the EPA’s determination that increases in CO2 endangered our health, and thus allowed them to declare it a pollutant subject to their regulation. This finding was based on no scientific basis, just climate zealot computer models — none of which have come anywhere near to being accurate. They all are spectacularly wrong and way over predict warming.
First, let’s review reality. CO2, as frequently set forth here, is necessary for life, not a pollutant! Plants take in CO2 and sunlight and turn it into food by which they grow. They release oxygen which we combine with hydrocarbons and we grow. The result is that when we feed we release CO2 and water. Every time you exhale, you put CO2 back into the atmosphere. Thus we are all polluters! Watch out for the EPA showing up at your door and seeking to fine you for breathing.
Now let’s deal with what’s going on here. Trump has a real big problem. Among his closest advisers are Ivanka and Jarred who are East Coast elitists, and who have drunk the kool aide. They believe the global warming religion, and it is a religion. Their is no science supporting it, and all you need to know to prove that is when they say the science is settled. Science is never settled! When I was in school, it was said that the atom composed of protons, neutrons and electrons were the smallest particles period. And that absent a nuclear reaction, Einstein’s E=MC2, could never be changed. Now we know about neutrinos and quarks etc., unknown in my day. Science is never settled, until actually proven like Eistein’s theory or F= ma one of Newton’s laws, or other other established and proven scientific laws. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO PROVEN SCIENTIFIC LAW SAYING INCREASES IN CO2 RESULT IN INCREASES IN TEMPERATURE!
The other problem is that Scott Pruitt, who I admit I thought would be great, turns out to be more interested in becoming either a senator from or governor of Oklahoma. He doesn’t want to take any position that might be considered highly controversial and so doesn’t really want to drain the swamp at EPA. Trump needs to replace him since he is much more concerned with his agenda than Trumo’s.
