Climate Mob Threatens Trump – ‘Quit Paris and You’re Toast!’

The international climate mob has made President Trump an offer he can’t refuse: “Stay in Paris – or the U.S. gets it!”

Among the threats made so far, should the president honor his election trail promise to quit the UN Paris climate agreement:

The U.S. will lose $6 trillion worth of jobs in “clean” energy.

The U.S. will become a “rogue country”.

The U.S. will be removed from Angela Merkel’s Weihnachtskarte list.

The U.S. may become the victim of further weaponized handshakes and other typically Gallic “your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” insults from prepubescent Mummy’s little tough boy President Macron of France.

The U.S. presidential administration may become subject to further awkward rifts between those who want a “seat at the table” in Paris – Tillerson; Jared Kushner; Ivanka; Gary Cohn; Rick Perry – and those who want out.

The U.S. may add to “global warming” by 0.3 degrees C,  causing the world to boil and melt or, if not that, then at least provoking much bitterness and resentment among all the countries that haven’t yet quit Paris even though they’d all secretly like to.

Quite how Trump will respond to these threats is still anyone’s guess. On the one hand, he has reportedly told various allies that he intends to pull out. On the other, he is known for changing his mind at the last minute.

What we do know is that the climate gravy train is trundling on regardless. And that as far as the U.S. climate negotiators are concerned, the current president might still just as well be Barack Obama.

Yup, that’s the inside gossip from EU news specialist Euractiv:

But, according to our sources, the US team are exploiting the vacuum to press ahead with the agreement, which was signed by Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama.

They told open-mouthed officials, “We are following the Obama procedure. As long as there are no new instructions, the old ones are still valid.”

They agreed on a limited budget increase to plans in Bonn. Diplomats told their opposite numbers that they should seize the opportunity to get as much agreed before Trump makes up his mind, awestruck sources gossiped.

Another source blasted that “climate should be humanity’s number one concern and this guy hasn’t found the time to sit down with his climate negotiators in more than 120 days in office”.

This international determination to keep the U.S. in the Paris Agreement at all costs sits slightly at odds with reports that several other signatory nations are privately desperate to escape.

According to Climate Home,  former Eastern Bloc countries Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary are trying to “gut, block or water down” the Paris accord’s emission-reduction promises because they interfere with their economic growth and commit them to useless, expensive renewable energy.

Europe’s steelmakers – among them, Arcelor-Mittal, Germany’s ThyssenKrupp and Austria’s Voestalpine – have written to EU leaders begging not to be burdened with any of the carbon emissions costs they say would make them uncompetitive against foreign rivals.

Meanwhile, a report produced by the Commission on Carbon Prices claims that says the carbon dioxide price needs to rise ten- or twentyfold if it is to meet Paris pledges. This would – to coin a phrase – cause electricity prices necessarily to skyrocket…

As Cliff Forrest notes in the Wall Street Journalthe ‘business case’ for Paris is bunk:

The economic merits of the Paris Agreement take on a different air when more fully considered. Climate-change advocates’ bizarre premise is that economic gains will come from restricting access to the most abundant, reliable and affordable fuel sources. Never mind that this defies the experience of many European nations that have invested heavily in renewable energy. After “Germany’s aggressive and reckless expansion of wind and solar,” for example, the magazine Der Spiegel declared in 2013 that electricity had become “a luxury good.” Apparently, this time will be different.

Which is why – as I remarked yesterday – it is so absurd and wrong and dishonest of the President’s so-called Economics Adviser Gary ‘Wormtongue’ Cohn to be pretending otherwise.

    China and India are full speed ahead with carbon, but Europe needs America to comply now, or the gloves come off. The Paris deal was DOA, smells like it , too.

      I read an article on one liberal web site explaining how President Trump couldn’t withdrawal from the Paris agreement for two years because that is the process required by the agreement. I made the comment that it was never ratified so the US is under no obligation to follow the agreement, including the terms for leaving. I made no comment on the value of the agreement and what I said could have just as easily be stated by an alarmist. I received an extremely hostile message stating that I shouldn’t even be on that web site.

        I have been browsing liberal web sites. One said that the second option for leaving the Paris agreement was to with completely from the 1992 accord. This is what it said about the first option.

        “The first option would be to exit the 2015 accord itself, but that would take nearly four years to fully execute. The agreement comes with a three-year moratorium on countries backing out of the agreement. After that “cooling-off period,” it takes a year for a notification of withdrawal to be finalized.”

        It is nothing less than astounding how many people don’t understand, “As it was never ratified, it aint LAW!”

    I find it disturbing that so many consider national sovereignty to be obsolete, or something that should be obsolete. They seem to think that it is our obligation to go along with the view of majority of nations and remain in the Paris agreement. Well, this isn’t the European Union and we have the right to chart our own course.

    The so called consequences are not real problems. The United States was declared “rogue country” when we refused to ratify Kyoto. I was actively following this issue at the time. As far as trade negotiations, we have always had the upper hand in that we are everybody’s best customer.

    What the liberals really fear is that once the US has shown the way, others may follow.

    The Brexit referendum and Trump’s election really shook up Brussels. The EU is making vague threats to the miscreants, warning others not to follow. Merkel has found the limits of European influence.
