Trump to withdraw from Paris climate deal

446 Views
Message 12 of 25

PC said, "So, even though our president is too stupid to understand the benefits of the Paris Accord, CNN is reporting that governors and mayors throughout the US have made a pact ......"

 

PC, not only is the above true, most American Corporations support the Paris Accord. Incredibly, Trump said he withdrew because it was bad for American Companies. But most American CEOs wholeheartedly support the Paris Accord. What's wrong with that picture?

 

Companies such as Mobil-Exxon, Shell, GE, Disney, etc. are upset with Trump for pulling out of the agreement. But have no fear, Trump's loyal followers continue to fall for the con job as they defend everything he does or says. How does one spell "Alternate Reality"?

So, even though our president is too stupid to understand the benefits of the Paris Accord, CNN is reporting that governors and mayors throughout the US have made a pact to stay within the rules of the Paris Accord.  Thank God we have some smart people governing in this country because we sure don't have someone even close to smart in the WH.

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

I disagreed with Obama's "pen" on most of what he used it for.

 

The job of Congress is to write the law, let them do their job.  If there is "consensus" on the topic and premise of "Global Warming" it should be a cake walk.

 

It's funny that Conservatives now want to call the accord, "a law".  Odd for sure.


QUESTION:

 

Would you prefer to be governed by the laws written by an elected congress or have unelected government agencies dictating what you can or can't do?


QUESTION:

 

What does that have to do with the topic?

 

BTW, agencies dictate what people can and can't do all the time.

The Paris deal - first of all it was not properly executed. It was an Obama decree rather than a properly executed treaty with approval by the Senate.

 

Second, we immediately effect our way of doing business while the real polluters merely promise to do something later.

 

Third, it is designed as a form of international wealth redistribution.


Meanwhile, US jobs in the energy industry will suffer, as well as US leadership in alternative energy.  Typical Conservative leadership.....make promises to coal workers you can't keep and fool the uneducated while patting oneself on the back all while handing the industry over to "Jina".

We need to see the bright side in all of this.  and that is"The more harm that they do the sooner that they will leave."Yes, unfortunately, most of his base constitute of very undeducated white Americans, that do not comprehend government or what it can do.

But those people will understand and react when things that they have always have had all of a sudden are not there. They aren't smart enough to understand it was trump who effected their lives negatively....they'll blame Congress or the Dems and justify it in their own minds.  Why?  It's what people do, they won't accept responsibility for electing a clown. Even Nixon had many supporters as he resigned. Wait until they need a service and that service is not there. Wait until they cannot find a job because they haven't bothered to retrain in other things.  Ahhhhh, now you're on the retraining train....LOL.  That's funny.  What happened to your bring jobs back mantra and your "Buy American" campaign?  Did you note GM has laid off 5,000 since trump got elected?  He didn't save one of those jobs....but I do remember some cheerleading when he claimed that he saved over 1,100 jobs.....close to 700 of those jobs will be eliminated at the plant on July 20 and moving to Mexico wher workers are paid $3.99 PER DAY!!!  Wait until they get sick and guess what, no money no insurance just basic help that will eventually kill them.  And some on this forum said they were glad trump won, as they patted themselves on the back, because the country "got what it deserved".  To bad for those who voted for someone other than trump; they be damned!
Wait until many of the things that they are expecting don't happen. until then they will continue to be Trump followers. And the majority of Americans who didn't vote for him, will suffer a similar fate.
