The hysteria from the left as a result of President Trump exiting the Paris climate accord is absurd.

Everything they say is anti-Trump and hardly a word in support of the agreement.

President Trump took the U.S. out of the accord because:

• The American taxpayers would have been on the hook for $3 trillion that would have been used by other countries to do with as they wished with no accountability or enforcement mechanisms;

• China, one of the world’s worst polluters, would be exempt until 2030;

• Environmentalists, now predicting the doom and gloom, are much like the people who predicted (at some point in the past) another Ice Age; a food famine; that cranberries were poisoning people (cranberry scare of 1959); and that the world would be out of oil by the 21st century;


I have read many reports about how some environmentalists’ studies used questionable data to support claims as they sought to squelch the opposition;

Notice how the emphasis on “global warming” has been changed to “climate change,” as doubts about temperature increases have arisen (the projected temperature decrease is forecast to be .02 degrees if all measures to counter global warming are put into effect).

No doubt — President Trump did the right thing
