The New American: “Alongside a brutal communist dictator, Obama used his infamous pen and his huge ego this weekend to “save our planet” from humans and the essential-to-life gas carbon dioxide they all exhale. At least that is what the would-be savior of the planet wants people to think.
In the city of Hangzhou, China, Obama announced his pretended “ratification” of a massive United Nations treaty on alleged man-made global warming, working in tandem with Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping and Beijing’s rubber-stamp legislature. Congress, though, was not consulted, and federal law prohibits compliance with the UN scheme.
Their fear is that a potential President Donald Trump takes over and makes good on his pledge to “cancel” the UN deal.
Opinion: Donald Trump must be doing better than the Obamapress is letting us in on. With his presidency just a few months from being over, the president is pulling out all the stops.
Of course the UN treaty ratification was pure theater, but don’t think for a minute that Obama’s actions on climate over the past 7 years didn’t do significant damage to America.
A Daily Caller post from yesterday said this: “This Labor Day, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs and 400 coal mines than it did when Barack Obama was elected in 2008, showing that the president has followed through on his pledge to “bankrupt” the coal industry.”
Thanks to a drop in oil prices, America’s energy costs have not skyrocketed as Obama said they would, but one oil tanker sunk in the straits of Hormuz could change that in a heartbeat.
It is important to remember on November 8, that a President Clinton, along with a newly elected Democrat Congress, will no doubt approve the UN’s climate deal:
“I applaud President Obama, Secretary Kerry and our negotiating team for helping deliver a new, ambitious international climate agreement in Paris. This is an historic step forward in meeting one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century—the global crisis of climate change.” Hillary Clinton, December 12, 2015.
