This just in from The Nation: Trump guilty of MURDER!
“Donald Trump’s Withdrawal from the Paris Accords
Is a Crime Against Humanity; this is Murder”
Humphrey Bogart was wrong. We won’t always have Paris. So here is CNN on-line this morning:
- Trump defies the world to score a political win
- By quitting the Paris pact, Trump gets a cheer from his base but aligns the US with Syria
- Pittsburgh mayor hits back after Trump talks about his city
- World leaders condemn Trump’s decision
- Goldman Sachs CEO’s first-ever tweet slams decision
- France’s Macron tweaks Trump with catchphrase
- Gergen: ‘One of the most shameful acts’ in US history
- Opinion: Trump’s stupidity on this will mobilize environmentalists
- The real story behind Trump’s job loss claim
- Trump’s right: a coal mine is opening soon. It will create 70 jobs.
- Inflated number: Trump takes credit for 1 million jobs. Not true.
- Clean vs. coal: Withdrawal from Paris deal risks job growth.
Those are the top dozen news headlines at CNN’s website, verbatim, as of 8:30 this morning. Yeah, the Clinton News Network, alright. In other news, unemployment nationally is the lowest in 16 years.
Some balm for the sorely afflicted, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal:
Amid the outrage, the aggrieved still haven’t gotten around to resolving the central Paris contradiction, which is that it promises to be Earth-saving but fails on its own terms. It is a pledge of phony progress. The 195 signatory nations volunteered their own carbon emission-reduction pledges … China and the other developing nations account for 63% of annual global CO 2 emissions, and their share is rising. … Over the past five years U.S. emissions have fallen by 270 million tons, while China—the No. 1 CO 2 emitter—added 1.1 billion tons.
Add to that fact, even if everyone met all their unenforceable pledges, it would result in a reduction in global temperatures of less than two degrees Centigrade by 2100.
National Review advises, “Okay, folks. Calm down, grab a paper sack, stick your nose in it, and breathe. Slowly.”
