There’s a lot to like about President Trump. He’s not racist, he’s not xenophobic, not Islamophobic, not misogynistic and definitely not a white supremacist. He’s a patriotic nationalist, hard working lover of individual responsibility and someone who values others—even when some of our own countrymen call those others our “enemy.” More than that, he works hard to live up to his campaign promises, a topic about Obama that gave me a severe case of voter’s remorse.
President Trump is logical. He looks to the long-term. He knows that a nation without borders ceases to be a sovereign nation. He doesn’t put up with other nations taking advantage of America. I only wish he knew the dangers lurking in the mountainous legislation which supposedly replaced NAFTA.
And one of the ways other nations (especially the United Nations collective) were taking advantage of the United States was by crippling the nation with onerous restrictions, giving up some of its national sovereignty and placing the American government under the jurisdiction of an unelected supranational body.
The Paris climate accord was wrong on so many different levels. Here’s the countdown of the top 10 reasons President Trump was right to pull out of the Paris agreement:
10. We live in an Ice Age
Yes, an Ice Age! You should already know that the polar regions are covered in ice. You should also know that the Pleistocene Ice Age consisted of dozens of glacial and interglacial periods, and the Holocene is merely the most recent interglacial in that Pleistocene series. And the Holocene is not the warmest of the Pleistocene’s interglacials.
Warming is good. We’re dangerously close to the bottom of Earth’s livable temperature range, and far from the top of that range.
9. Warming has resulted in prosperity throughout history
Warming lead to prosperity? Yes! Amazingly, the Left-leaning media and the unelected bureaucrats at the United Nations ignore the fact that our Modern Warm Period is the most prosperous period in humanity’s nearly 6,000-year history.
Before today, we had the Medieval Warm Period and all its glorious building projects (900–1350). Notre Dame was started before the famines of the Little Ice Age hit, and the project was almost cancelled.
Before that, we had the Roman Warm Period (200 BC–100 AD). And before that, the Minoan Warm Period (1400–1100 BC). Each of these periods saw great prosperity and periods of art and building.
8. Cooling has resulted in famines and societal collapses
Globalists like former CIA Director Brennan praise global cooling efforts like Stratospheric Aerosol Injection (SAI) to cool down the planet “like volcanoes do.” Ironically, Brennan voiced his praise on the 200th anniversary of the 1816 volcanic cooling (the year without a summer) which killed thousands and turned thousands more into climate refugees.
We’ve experienced a 3,000-year cooling trend, with each warm period peak successively less warm, and each cooling valley between peaks successively cooler.
With the post Minoan cooling, we got the Greek Dark Ages (1100–800 BC). After the Roman Warm Period, we got a far deeper cooling which created famines and the displacement of the Norsemen to start pillaging farther south (500–900 AD). The Roman Empire had experienced a couple hundred years of cooling, but then a rebound lasted from about 300–500 AD. The deepest cooling that followed only lasted a couple hundred years (700–900 AD).
The Little Ice Age got almost as cold as the Medieval “Dark Ages,” but it lasted far longer (1350–1850)—a period fraught with famines, societal collapses and general unrest which exceeded any discontent found during the warm periods.
7. CO2 does not drive global warming
In fact, it doesn’t contribute much at all to warming. In science, we look for correlation or coincidence—the cause-and-effect variety. The trick is to determine what is an accidental alignment and what is an alignment that has a direct relationship with some earlier event or condition.
Carbon dioxide has virtually zero correlation with warming on all time scales but one. Even on the time scale of 10s to 100s of years, CO2 shows virtually no correlation with temperature, except the accidental alignment from random chance.
The one time scale which does have a strong correlation (10s to 100s of thousands of years, shown on Al Gore’s inconvenient graph) has temperature driving CO2 into and out of the oceans. CO2 does not drive temperature. Gore’s film proved this, but few noticed it. When CO2 levels spiked at the end of his graph to 380 ppm, there was not a commensurate spike in temperature. Since the greenhouse effect works on light (infrared band), and since the speed of light is 186,282 miles per second (nearly 300,000 km per second), one would expect the build-up in temperature to be rather rapid. Reality shows this not to be happening.
In fact, the Modern Warm Period is merely the most recent of a series of Holocene warm periods on a 1,000-year cycle. We would’ve had the Modern Warm Period with or without the Industrial Revolution, so we cannot blame humans and fossil fuel burning for the modern warming.
6. Curbing production of CO2 would be bad
Shutting down industry or curbing fossil fuel burning would be detrimental to the economy and to the factors which allow people to live longer lives.
Our individual health depends on a number of factors, all of which depend on lots of energy. These factors include good food and a variety of foods, fresh water, heating and air conditioning, thriving medical industry and other energy-intensive aspects of civilization.
5. Producing more CO2 helps green the planet
More CO2 helps in generating more food for a growing population. Any decrease in some kinds of nutrition is minimal and offset by increases in other types of nutrition. With greenhouses using up to 1,000 ppm of CO2, their production of food has increased by 30–40%. With an atmospheric increase similar to this, we could enjoy similar boosts to our crop harvests worldwide. Everyone can benefit from this free fertilizer.
4. CO2 does not harm the environment
Life has thrived in far higher amounts of CO2—up to 20,000 ppm (50x today’s level). In fact, 20,000 ppm is the NASA spacecraft maximum for CO2 for up to an hour. Shellfish first evolved with CO2 between 4,500 and 7,000 ppm, so any talk of shellfish losing their shells is nonsense.
3. Global warming makes droughts and deserts less of a problem
A decrease in droughts from global warming is easy to understand, because warmer oceans evaporate more water, generating more rain. During the warmer Holocene Optimum, the Sahara was green for 3,000 years. Today’s wimpy Lake Chad was, back then, a robust inland sea rivaling the Caspian in its heyday.
Before the current Ice Age, as Earth cooled off for tens of millions of years, it became drier and drier. During the Eocene, deserts were smaller and droughts were rare.
2. Global warming makes hurricanes, typhoons and tornadoes more rare.
From the work of Dr. Ryan Maue, we know that tropical cyclones are on a 40+ year downtrend. From data supplied by NOAA, we know that US strong tornadoes (EF3-EF5) are on a 60-year downtrend. Dr. Hubert Lamb found that violent storms were far more prevalent during the Little Ice Age than they were during the 20th century. Lamb was the founder and first director of the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University.
The reason violent storms are more common in colder climate has to do with the reason why wind blows at all—temperature differences. When the world is colder, polar temperatures move closer to equatorial heat, jacking up the thermal gradient. When cool hurricanes pass over warmer waters, it picks up energy from that temperature difference.
If the polar ice were eliminated, the biggest source of cold on the planet would have been eliminated, greatly reducing the thermal battery that powers our strong storms.
1. The UN can’t be trusted.
Their stated aim (Agenda 21 and 2030) is to eliminate national sovereignty (borders), end individual freedoms and eliminate private ownership. In other words, they are everything the United States and its Constitution are not.
Not only do we need to ignore the United Nations and its schemes to destroy the United States, we need to defund the organization, close its headquarters on American soil and send the members packing.
I’ve always loved the public idea of the United Nations, but in practice, it has turned out to be the source of our worst nightmares—a worldwide tyranny that threatens to make the word “refugee” obsolete, because there will be nowhere to run when the government becomes criminally abusive.
Macron was an idiot when he said that patriotism and nationalism are opposites. That was merely more Orwellian Doublethink. Individuals can do bad things, just as can nations. But we need the individual to be free to make mistakes, just like the individual nations. For in that freedom we have the ability to move toward something better.
The United Nations wants to destroy the best nation the world has ever seen. Many of the things that makes the United States imperfect are from the Left and their Big Government mentality. Those on the Right who support Big Government are actually wolves in sheep’s clothing—Lefties pretending to be for freedom and individual responsibility, when their actions prove they are enemies of such freedom.
