Column: “Trump calls out the global-control agenda of the Paris deal, but Canada remains oblivious”

Read the whole thing:

In his speech, Trump clearly and articulately spelled out the flaws of the Paris agreement — flaws that apply to Canada as well as the United States. Paris puts the U.S. at a disadvantage to its major trading nations. It requires a redistribution of wealth from the U.S. and Canada to other nations.

While Canada and the U.S. are required to reduce their reliance on coal and other fossil fuels, other nations — China, India and African countries — will be allowed to dramatically increase their use of fossil fuels. The expansion of coal use is already underway. China’s coal-fired capacity is forecast to jump 19 per cent over the next five years while Canada tries to eliminate coal to meet climate targets. Pakistan and South Africa are planning major coal-fired projects. India sits on vast coal reserves that it won’t likely leave in the ground.

The idea that the wealthy nations should curb their fossil-fuel-based growth while developing nations expand theirs is an idea embedded in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The theory has been that since developed nations are “principally responsible” for current levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, it is incumbent on them to bear a “heavier burden” as developing nations pursue fossil-fuel-based growth.

Even if one accepts the UN science on climate change, the economic fundamentals behind the Kyoto and Paris protocols are flawed, unfair, damaging and — as has been shown since all this started back in Rio in 1992 — politically unworkable on any international scale.

It’s not the science that’s the problem (although the science might also be a problem). It’s the economics and the politics of attempting to shape an international global control regime. Trump got it just right as he outlined the unnecessary burdens to be imposed on America and the West while other nations are allowed to proceed with business as usual. He rightly decried “the massive redistribution of U.S. wealth to other countries.”

    This is why the leftist main line churches no longer believe in the Bible(or God for that matter).. The Book of Revelation makes it quite clear about the coming of a one world government and religion. Even the mark of the beast is becoming a reality, with the push for people to have a number implanted on them for easier bill payments etc.

    This is their totalitarian wet dream.

    Climate Change is not 100% proven and the EU is doing whatever it can to enslave its people with thought control.

      The climate has changed several times from day one even prior to the existence of people, so most of us do not deny climate change. What we deny because it is not based on facts is that man causes the climate to change. Opting to use ‘climate change’ instead of ‘global warming’ was done on purpose in order to confuse the issue. I recall some time back receiving a telephone poll where I was asked if I believed in climate change, which was along the line of “do you still beat your wife?”. There was no option to explain your response; it was either yes or no. You are correct about it being a means to enslave people in the developed world. It is another step towards the ‘new world order’ or one world government, something freedom loving people need to fight to the bitter end.

      I think you mean that there is no proof in “Anthropogenic” global warming. The weather is always changing, the climax changes a lot slower. Sadly your average leftist doesn’t have the intellectual capacity to tell the difference between climate and weather.

    Canada sucks

    • Clausewitz

      Yes, as a country we do indeed suck in 11 tons of CO2 for every ton we emit. Tell me again why we need CO2 taxes?

    The Paris Accord was nothing more than a 4 trillion dollar attempt to establish a Global government. The US already has tighter restrictions on pollution (real pollution) than the accord would have ever called for. The whole process was an attack on Capitalism so Trump told them to stick it.
