After many days of suspense, President Trump has officially announced his administration’s plan to reject the accord on Thursday in the Rose Garden.
This is good news. That’s because the entirety of the Paris Climate Accord is utter garbage, as explained here. In summation, the Paris Climate Accord is a truly globalist structure that serves as an extreme job killer with a predicted total income loss of more than $20,000 for a family of four, an overall average shortfall of nearly 400,000 jobs, and an aggregate GDP loss of over $2.5 trillion. But, does the benefits outway the cost? Absolutely not. Here’s what I wrote heretofore:
As mentioned previously, there is an argument to be made for this agreement if two factors are met: there is an immediate problem, and these proposed actions are guaranteed to serve as immediate solutions. In today’s current world, both requirements have not been met.
According to the president of the Copenhagen Consensus Centre Bjorn Lomborg, the world would see a minuscule decline of 0.3 degrees Fahrenheit. This prediction assumes an unlikely continuity: that the world would adhere to and sustain the proposed carbon cuts. I say the 0.3 degree number is minuscule because it is. If countries observed and maintained the cuts from 2030 to 2100 and the combined temperature went down by 0.3 degrees, global warming would be postponed for “less than four years.”
It is likely that at least one hundred trillion dollars will be spent in order to lessen the effects of global warming by an irrelevant amount; a high price to pay for a substandard outcome.
Trump is now rejecting the Paris Accord stating, “The Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States.” The economic argument was also made by Trump when he proclaimed the Paris Agreement “puts us at a permanent disadvantage. It’s time to exit.” This puts Trump’s position on the Climate Acord juxtaposed to that of 195 other countries.
“I was elected to serve the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” said President Trump. The decision to retreat from the Accord should have been a mind-bogglingly simple one. Trump even campaigned on slashing the Paris Agreement. “We’re going to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payment of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs,” he added.
Folks on the left, however, fail to acknowledge the necessity of leaving the Paris Agreement. So, they flipped out. Socialist loonbag and failed 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders excoriated Trump, calling the decision to withdraw “an abdication of American leadership and an international disgrace.” In an official statement from Barack Obama, Trump’s conclusion to remove the United States from the Paris Agreement was slammed, “Even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future, I’m confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we’ve got.” A ridiculous sentiment.
Not to mention the ever-present social media freakout reared its disinformation-filled head in the form of Hillary Clinton and Co.:
A historic mistake. The world is moving forward together on climate change. Paris withdrawal leaves American workers & families behind.

Walking away from Paris treaty is a mistake. Climate change is real. We owe our children more. Protecting our future also creates more jobs.

And, perhaps the most preposterous response comes from the ACLU’s racialization of the argument:
Pulling out of the Paris Agreement would be a massive step back for racial justice, and an assault on communities of color across the U.S.
