Did you know why the Paris climate agreement was voluntary?

And not a treaty? From Jeffrey A. Tucker at Foundation for Economic Education:

The Paris Agreement is a “voluntary” agreement because its architects knew it would never pass the US Senate as a treaty. Why? Because the idea of the agreement is that the US government’s regulatory agencies would impose extreme mandates on its energy sector: how it should work, what kinds of emissions it should produce, the best ways to power our lives (read: not fossil fuels), and hand over to developing world regimes billions and even trillions of dollars in aid, a direct and ongoing forcible transfer of wealth from American taxpayers to regimes all over the world, at the expense of American freedom and prosperity.

And you wonder why many people have doubts about it. More.

Reality check: Did your local traditional media spell that out for you? If not, seek other sources of information hereafter. You already have to fund the bloated public sector here, don’t you? Just think, you could have done it globally too. The ultimate virtue signal.
