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.

    Trump could play on the fact it is illegitimate because it wasn’t voted up or down in Congress. Put it to a vote. Force it up the left’s asses. It would split the Democrat party in two. The progressives would freak that their own crew (who worries about getting re-elected) threw them under the bus.

    “”One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.
    So what is the goal of environmental policy?
    We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.”


    In their own words, it’s a socialist/communist redistribution of wealth from developed countries to under-developed countries. The MSM, had they been neutral should have been shouting out this non-scientific plan, but since they are in the main socialists themselves there was no outcry. Even the quoted Edenhofer must have believed that he was safe from backlash to speak so openly.

    Great article on “Arrogance of Paris Climate Elites” and explains just how treacherous Ozero was for the U.S. Now Canada has the same disaster with Trudope being an exact copy of Ozero. Even if the Lieberals are voted out in 2019, it is going to take decades to recover from the damage inflicted on the country by Trudope traitors.
