The globalists on the left have long treated climate change as a global problem requiring a global solution. From the Kyoto Protocols to the Paris Climate Accords, international bureaucrats act like the only way to reduce carbon emissions is to put the entire world under global government. That is why President Trump wisely pulled America out of the Paris Climate Accords on June 1, 2017. However, President Biden reversed course at the first opportunity.
Biden’s about-face could not have come at a worse time. In a highly-publicized decision, a nation’s own court system ruled against it for defaulting on its commitment under the Paris Climate Accords.
What nation made the violation? It is none other than France, the very nation after which the agreement is named. Four environmentalist groups successfully sued the nation of France, earning themselves damages of exactly one euro.
Sadly, this news from France only underscores a much larger issue. In America, when we give our word on something to the international community, we generally follow through. Other nations are not always so noble.
Often, countries like China and Russia will sign these agreements for a little good PR without ever intending to keep their word. However, our two big adversaries are not the only ones who cash in on the PR. In fact, a panel of self-designated “world-class climate scientists” released a report saying that nearly 75 percent of nations in the Paris Accord are failing to meet their commitments.
While all these nations in the Accord have been failing to make any changes, the United States has been reducing carbon emissions. A release from the EPA shows that America has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent nationwide since 2005, including a drop of 27% in the energy field.
Under the leadership of President Trump, America was able to cut regulations on a sixteen-to-one ratio, become energy independent, substantially grow the economy, and still reduce emissions. That flies in the face of everything the Left tells us. Americans have to rethink the way we look at the environment. Globalist treaties and crushing industries are not the solution.
