We’ll Always Have Paris – Memories…

Looks like Trump has done it! Announced we are exiting from the Paris slop, but gave a token “might negotiate a new deal”.

This is what freedom feels like ;-)

Just saw it on the Press Conference at the White House. Party Tonight!

Let the wailing and gnashing of teeth on the left begin.

There will also now be legal fights over “Can one President bind his successor via a signature on a non-treaty to NOT be able to exit from it?”

    Great presentation. What was missing was any meaningful discussion of why this agreement was bad science, not just bad business. Even FNC anchors were talking about how important this agreement was for the future of the planet. That meme needs to be dealt with, but how to do so in a few sentences? Stating the “97%” lie is easy, countering it seems nearly impossible.

    When you are crushing your opponent it is not the time to expose your flank. Trump neatly avoided being labeled with the “D Word”… That can come later.


    I noticed that from the dignitaries gathered on the Rose Garden lawn, came “Whoops!” of joy. Not something that the D.C. Crowd of brown nosers are known for… I think that may be the sound of swamps draining… Cajun Gator Hunters on the prowl…

    Such a straight clear speech. Not weasel wordy slop. Not slight of hand. Straight talk.

    It must scare the crap out of the Political and Entitled Classes of D.C. and the Rest Of World.

    Yay! Now get us out of the UN and the UN out of the US. Let us deal with the rest of the world man to man, as appropriate. War is hell, but sometimes necessary. Appeasement will not necessarily prevent you from having a war to deal with.

    Thanks for great news!

    President Trump, towards the end, did point out that it was all to prevent a 0.2 degree rise in GAT by 2100, assuming all of the Paris Accord was followed. He did not dispute the most widely accepted ‘scientific’ projections of the GAT in 2100.

    @E.M. – Party Time!!! indeed. I’ll be swillin’ down Grape Nehi tonight!

    The Swamp being the Swamp, a lot of denizens were probably keeping a low profile until they knew for sure where the party was headed. Now that it’s clear, the obstruction by inaction is likely to abate as more folks feel comfortable getting with the program.

  7. Graeme No.3 says:

    Well done Trump. His offer to renegotiate is genius, as I am sure that he knew it would be rejected, as it has. From now on all he has to say is “I wanted a fairer deal but they wouldn’t cooperate”.
    Leaves the Left without a paddle. (Ref. canoe, waterfall ahead).

  8. jim2 says:

    Next salvo aimed at the EPA I heard. YeaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA TRUMP!!! Already gotten into an argument over him pulling us from a “treaty” that wasn’t.

  9. Larry Ledwick says:

    The climate folks are going nuts on social media, this is going to require more popcorn. It would be perfect timing now for a rapid cooling episode as an exclamation mark to this.

    Whew! Glad thats over with. Many of the 97% are slinking off to retirement.

    And it appears GOD will add an exclamation point of Global Cooling to make that clear.

    Within 10 years there will be a great outcry of AGC a human caused ICE AGE bearing down on us that MUST be combated to save us all. I say hang them immediately…pg

    In the UK since his announcement the BBC has not interviewed one single person who is not an avid alarmist, their onslaught is non stop.
    They have not once mentioned his finacial reasoning, only that it will make all the poor people in the rest of the world suffer.

    Comment on President Trump’s decision on the Paris Agreement.


  19. Larry Ledwick says:

    Item from Fox news about how the Paris agreement was simply a fraud to make the US pay billions to developing countries – in short it was a protection racket like effort to strip money from the US and give it to other countries.


  20. E.M.Smith says:

    NPR running a radio show (Forum) all on Trump, Paris, and all the horrors to befall the USA as we are not going to shape the process and will miss out on all the lovely climate jobs and how Trump is “looking backwards”, as we progress to the past…

    Yeah, nausia… ignoring the 100 $ Billion /year starter cost rising toward $1/2 $ Trillion /yr…

    Now doing FUD over “political repercussions”… (fear, uncertainty, doubt)….

    The planned strategy is being stated as focusing on States, Local government, and Companies to push the Paris plan anyway… so the octopus is becoming a slime mold… and metastasizing.

  21. pearce m. schaudies says:

    What was agreed in Paris? ( a worthless, toothless excuse for lots of expensive meetings)

    Climate change, or global warming, refers to the damaging effect of gases, or emissions, released from industry and agriculture on the atmosphere.
    The Paris accord is meant to limit the global rise in temperature attributed to emissions.
    Countries agreed to:
    Keep global temperatures “well below” the level of 2C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavour to limit” them even more, to 1.5C
    Limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100
    Review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge
    Enable rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy
    To date, 147 out of 197 countries have ratified the accord, including the US, where it entered into force last November.

    x. x. x. x.

    The giveaway for the Paris charade is the refusal to set baselines. If nations are to hold one another accountable for progress on greenhouse-gas emissions, surely they must agree on a starting point from which to progress. Yet the framework for Paris pointedly omitted this requirement. Countries could calculate their own baselines however they chose, or provide none at all.

    Here is a transcript of the Trump and Pruitt speeches:

    Plenty of wonkery…….statistics on shrinking industries such as cement and coal while China builds coal generating plants unchecked until at least 2030. Millions of jobs lost and trillions of dollars wasted. Notice the media don’t want to discuss these issues rationally.

    Trump said the Paris Accord might reduce global temperature by 0.2 degrees. Given how the temperature has flat lined for 20 years in spite of rising CO2 levels one should not take such estimates seriously. If you can’t explain the recent past why would anyone believe your predictions for 2100?

    The Paris Accord can be summarized as phantom gain for real pain. Let us hope pulling out of it is another nail in the coffin of “Stupid Government”.

  23. philjourdan says:

    #1 – “Might negotiate” – that is actually a good strategy on Trump’s part. It puts the onus back on the other countries and leaves his options wide open. That is negotiating (a lost art among politicians).
    #2 – Obama tried for 8 years to destroy the US as the “World Leader”, and the left lionized him! Trump effectively said “I am going this way, you go your way”, removing the US (temporarily) as the World leader and they demonize him.

    The left clearly has no clue what it wants. Trump did in 5 months what Obama could not do in 8 years.

  24. philjourdan says:

    @BeththeSerf – The greatest moment was when the French pip squeak started squeaking about “quelle domage!” Just days after snubbing Trump.

    Trump gets the last snub! LOL!!!

  25. bruce says:

    wish Priitt would have handed out a memo with a description of the 97% consensus paper, Perhaps a link to a Christy discussion. Some charts that show just how hollow the catastrophic aspects of global warming.are, the vacuous aspects of the papers showing insects dying out or polar bears. The loss of ice, vrs the history of the Arctic.
    You know none of those reporters has seen anything other than other mainstream news harping on polar bears of rising sea levels. Perhaps if they had some factual information given them in a one minute format they would have a question of two for themselves.

  26. Tom says:

    Running deep–running silent. Is this part of the leverage?


  27. E.M.Smith says:


    I wonder if all the Governors, Mayors, and company executives saying they will implement the Paris Agreement anyway, will now need to register as foriegn agents? Or run afoul of the laws saying only the Feds can conduct foreign govt affairs? After all, I think the Constitution reserves foreign policy to the Feds only…

    Maybe we need a Special Prosecutor to look into that….

  28. E.M.Smith says:


    Interesting tech. Too bad they have to sell it based on “meeting climate goals” and carbon capture and sequestration.

  29. Graeme No.3 says:

    The Australian newspaper has led the WE Inquirer section with caustic criticism of the AGW crowd from Clive James, unfortunately paywalled but it might be available by Google (if they haven’t censored it). It is scathing about some by name and the behaviour of scientists in general.
    He cautions against thinking that the AGW scam will collapse, merely that it will slowly decline.

    His full article will be part of Climate Change – the Facts to be published next month by the IPA. I will try and get you a copy.
