From Regan Pifer: So much kerfuffle.
Entirely too much kerfuffle over President Trump’s announcement this week on the United States pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord.
After listening to Hollywood buffoons and wacky environmentalists, you’d be convinced the world will end by 2018 because of Trump’s decision.
Michael Moore categorized Trump’s actions as expanding his “predatory acts to the entire planet” while Bette Midler tweeted with disgust, “There has never in US history been such a destructive megalomaniac in the WH.”
According to Vox, “President Trump is selling out our kids to give false hope to coal workers” as “there is only the profound immorality of abdication–of gleefully passing a mounting problem on to our children, and on to the poor.”
HOWEVER, it turns out the Paris Agreement hasn’t actually changed ANYTHING. There has been no difference.
According to WUWT, “even if we DID stay in it, (and all the other countries too) that .05°C savings is likely to get lost in the noise, since global temperature measurements are rounded. For example, in the USA, NOAA rounds the high and low temperature to the nearest whole degree Fahrenheit (0.55°C, a value over ten times greater than the .05°C savings Paris offers)…For Global temperature, GHCN data for example, NOAA rounds to the nearest tenth of a degree C, (0.1°C) TWICE the value of .05°C savings Paris offers.”
Thus, “even the best case scenario out of the Paris Climate Accord will get lost in the data rounding.”
What might end up helping this planet the most is if these world leaders and celebrities stop flying to all of these global warming and climate change meetings to save fuel and resources.
But then, what would all of Hollywood say during their acceptance speeches? If we don’t talk about the dolphins…what is there to talk about?
