President Trump fulfilled one of his 竞选承诺 by withdrawing our country from last year’s Paris agreement on phasing out fossil-fuel energy production.

这是纯净的 美国第一 policy-making. The Paris agreement was a big favorite with globalists, in spite of the fact that it wasn’t actually very global.

Sure, all the important countries signed on to it, but not on equal terms. The U.S.A., in the person of Barack Obama, promised to reduce the U.S.A.’s carbon dioxide emissions by at least 26 percent over 15 years; China only promised that their emissions would stop rising by 2030 — having of course risen mightily in the meantime. [U.S., China formally enter climate change deal, CBS, September 3, 2016 ]

The fact that well-nigh every country has signed on to the agreement tells you, all by itself, that nobody much takes it seriously. Only Syria and Nicaragua have not signed. Syria is busy with other issues, and nobody knows or cares where Nicaragua is or what happens to the place, if it even is 一个地方。

When 195 of the world’s countries agree to something, without discord or rancor or the mobilization of troops, you can be sure it’s something of very little consequence to any of them. This is global-scale virtue signalling.

And as is the case with all virtue signalling, the Paris agreement, so far as it has any content at all, is anti-white. It places the heaviest obligations on prosperous, successful developed countries, which means mostly white countries.

(Apologies to the 日本语 韩国人, who, I would guess from some modest acquaintance with them, signed the agreement in a spirit of pure undiluted cynicism. And in case you’re wondering: Yes, 北朝鲜 is a signatory to the agreement too — a very telling index of the level of cynicism here.)

Setting aside the degree of sincerity with which the countries of the world have signed up to the Paris agreement, the agreement itself amounts to nothing much.

What, for example, would be the penalties against a country that broke its promises under the Paris Agreement? And who would enforce those penalties? Answers: Nothing and nobody. There is no enforcement mechanism.

In the particular case of the U.S.A., our signature to the agreement anyway has no force, as it’s not a treaty as defined in our Constitution. Article II, Section 2 of that blessed document specifies that the President, quote, “shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make 条约, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur,” end quote. Obama never went through that little formality, 所以 协议 have no legal force in our country.[ The U.S. can’t quit the Paris climate agreement, because it never actually joined by Eugene Kontorovich, Washington Post, June 2, 2017]

So pretty much anything to do with the Paris agreement is just gestural. Our signing up to it was a gesture; our leaving it is a gesture. Neither act makes any difference to your life or mine.

President Trump’s pulling out of the agreement was at least, though, a gesture in the right direction. As I said, it was a gesture to his America First principle. As he said, quote: “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” end quote. The Mayor of Pittsburgh grumbled that his citizens actually voted eighty percent for Mrs. Clinton. [ Mayor Peduto slams Trump for name-dropping Pittsburgh, by Adam Smelts, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 1, 2017] But that’s splitting hairs. President Trump elected, and the American electorate in its collective wisdom elects a President to represent them all, including those who didn’t vote for the winning candidate.

Given what a nothingburger this all is, the reactions both at home and abroad to Trump’s announcement have been bizarrely disproportionate. Ex-President Obama 说过 Trump had “joined a small handful of nations that reject the future.”[Barack Obama’s statement on Trump’s Paris Agreement withdrawal: Read it in full, Independent, 1年2017月XNUMX日]

German Chancellorette Angela Merkel paused briefly from handing over her countryMuslim invaders to tell us that Trump, “can’t and won’t stop all those of us who feel obliged to protect the planet.” [EU to bypass Trump administration after Paris climate agreement pullout, 监护人, June 2, 2017] A tabloid newspaper in her nation ran a front-page heading saying: Earth to Trump: [bleep] You!. That headline was of course in German, except for the bleep, which was 盎格鲁 - 撒克逊 … or in this case, I guess, just 撒克逊.

XNUMXD压花不锈钢板 中共, as represented by their propaganda outlet 环球时报, honked that “the selfishness and irresponsibility of the U.S.A. will be made clear to the world, crippling the country’s world leadership.” [Paris deal tests responsibility of Washington, Global Times (China) June 1, 2017] That is from a gang that has yet to apologize to its own citizens for having 谋杀 thirty million of them. 自私 and irresponsibility, right.

Liberals, globalists, and white ethnomasochists — what Chinese bloggers derisively call the 白座, the white left — were hyperventilating fit to burst. Showbiz airheads were of course to the fore. Victoria’s Secret bimbo Candice Swanepoel 感叹 that: “We are nothing without a healthy planet. Nothing.” [Victoria’s Secret Angel Gets Heated About The Climate Deal, by Ford Springer, SmokeRoom, June 1, 2017 ]

What, you never heard of Ms. Swanepoel? Me neither until this morning. She looks really nice in a spangled 比基尼泳装.

All the weeping and wailing demonstrates yet again, if it needed demonstrating yet again, that as religion has ebbed from the public life in advanced countries, politics has taken its place. The kind of passions that once fired up Arians and Athanasians, Protestants and Catholics, PremillennialsPostmillennials against each other, have been transferred to the political realm.

立即订购

Those modules of the human mind that used to fix on the nature of the gods and the best way to appease them are now busy with matters of public policy, bringing to political issues the same excess of heat and deficit of light that religious passions once generated.

In this new schema, Global Warming is a sort of apocalypse or Judgement Day. Repent, you sinners! — the sinners in this case being civilized white folk. Repent!

Where Global Warming is concerned, I continue my refusal to be concerned. If there’s a problem, it’s a gradual one, and we’ll science our way out of it somehow, I’m sure.

That’s we, the civilized nations. Things might get dire for backward regions a few decades on, but things are likely going to get dire for them anyway, with resource depletion and uncontrolled population growth. We need to take care of ourselves, and if necessary practice 救生艇伦理.

The thing that mainly irks me about the Global Warming fuss is, in fact, that it directs our political energies things we shouldn’t bother about and 远离 from pressing matters we 应该 bother about, and some of which we can actually change with some straightforward legislation.

I’m thinking mostly of course about

But there are other issues, too, that warrant much more political attention than Global Warming:

In the list of things I want my politicians to work on, to come up with solutions for, Global Warming ranks about Number 49.

And then, in among that leading 48, there is

  1. Perhaps the surest sign the experts don’t really take their own claptrap about fighting climate change seriously is the the sheer amount of carbon by-products the release into the atmosphere jetting off to various summits and conferences on the subject. There’s also no shortage of carbon dioxide being spewed into the air to denounce Trump and to tell us sceptics what bad people we are.

    Maybe we should start asking these folks what they have against plants.

  2. A spot on article from the Derb.

    I do believe in the science of climate change but the grandstanding Paris circus is not going to fix it. I lived in Beijing for 5 years and what will fix it in China as elsewhere is the response of local citizens to being gassed by their own factories or having their own agricultural land turned to desert. That’s what happened with the killer London smogs – eventually Londoners had enough and we passed the Clean Air Act.

    Trump is standing out against the hypocritical elites who so love their CO2 heavy meetings. Its been up and down with Trump so far but this is a step in the right direction – and while of no practical importance gives the middle fingers to the globalists. I suspect after all the problems with the judges over the immigration orders and the fake but dangerous Russiagate stuff, this as much as anything else was a key motivation in the decision.

    Another interesting (and by interesting, I mean idiotic liberal nonsense) area of the latest bash Trump movement, is the Kathy Griffin nonsense.

    Her current cries of being attacked by Trump are obscenely ridiculous. She launches into a grotesque depiction of assassination, then when the Secret Service do a minor routine investigation (which they are obligated to do whenever someone makes a threat against a President), she cries out that Trump is personally attacking her terribly. To see how foolish it is, if we even take out of the picture that this was done towards a 总统, if it was just two people, Jack and Jim, and Jack made a bloody decapitated effigy of Jim, and Jim simply reported it to the police to investigate, it would seem insanely ludicrous for Jack to complain publicly that Jim is trying to ruin his life. Could we imagine that anyone should ever take this person as serious, or sane? And yet, that is essentially what is going on here.

    She is basically trying to earn libtard pokemon points by ‘uppin the ante’ of attacks on Trump by going with a grotesquely gory attack, and by trying to cast herself as a poor victim of Trump. She is hoping all the news coverage will help her sagging career and will gain her more support from her leftwing friends in the entertainment industry.

    Good point. I initially wondered if it was a nuclear plant which would make it even more ironic, but I think this is the plant (coal fired so a good example IMHO): http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Hengshui_Hengxing_power_station

    I understand wanting to get a good visual, but it seems like they could have chosen an angle that included the smokestacks as well as the cooling towers (see overhead view at link).

  18. @Forbes

    Pictured are cooling towers emitting water vapor, and not pollutants.

    I noticed that first thing, too, I mean 2nd thing after the bikini picture. However, water vapor is a bigger radiation-trapping gas than Carbon Dioxide, Forbes. Neither of these components of the atmosphere are freakin’ 污染物 for cryin’ loud. That brings up the comment I meant to write to Mr. Derbyshire, which I’ll make separate. I’ve written > 20 posts on this in the last 1/2 year.

  20. @The Alarmist

    Alarmist, Glenn Reynolds, the Instapundit, said it best and often: “For the political leaders, well, I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.” I hope Professor Reynolds (UTennessee Law) has come to know that it is indeed hypocrisy, and there is no crisis, which does not in any way disprove his statement.

    Well, Mr. Derbyshire’s a bit late to the realization, I think (math guy, not an engineer) that this is pretty much a big scam**作为 该死的,没有关于世界气候的有效数学模型!* I really don’t like the words “污染物” or “emissions” used in writing about this topic. Anyone who writes like this is letting these globalist cntrl-left freaks continue the narrative through him. Come on, Mr. Derbyshire, will it kill you to take a whiff of even 50 % CO2? Then, it’s not a pollutant, and emissions sound like something from a leak in the refinery or something you’d find after you posted too many of the bikini pictures.

    Please don’t become part of spreading the narrative, Mr. Derbyshire.

    Come on, Mr. Derbyshire, will it kill you to take a whiff of even 50 % CO2? Then, it’s not a pollutant,…

    Sorry, Mr. Derb, you didn’t use the word “pollutant”, only “emissions”. I hear them both, but even using “emissions” is falling in line with the narrative that Carbon Dioxide is some unnatural stuff that we need to stay away from. What do we do if we are Magnolia trees, Douglas Firs, or even weed, I mean, weeds? We really couldn’t even live without it (CO2, I mean, not weed).

    BTW, I think that the Lyin’ Press loves using “emissions” and “pollutants” also because it confuses people in that the non-scientific among us (i.e. quite a few people) will mistake Carbon Dioxide for Carbon Monoxide, which CAN kill you dead. Good journalism there, that confusing-the-readers part – that’s graduate level stuff.

    Oh, good stuff, BTW, but I like to save most of the reading of Radio Derb for when the podcast is done and the transcript is up (never can find it on VDare, so I catch it on your site).

    What bikini pic…Oh. never mind.

    Actually, the woman is simply a stick insect that resembles a human female. I’m sure there are some guys who would drool over that, just as there are guys that drool over fatties, she is abnormally thin and ugly for it.

    丝毫没有减损巴黎协定愚蠢到地狱的事实。

  24. As Peter Lee noted, the US only contributes a small percentage of the world’s emissions as is. China needs to deal with its pollution for reasons far more immediate than global warming, so agreeing to the empty terms of it simply is just virtue signaling for something that it needs to do anyway. And no one seems to have a handle on India, so the agreements ultimately do nothing to actually solve the problem.

    The entire thing is stupid.

  25. @Quartermaster

    Listen, QM, I’ll take that girl home over a fatty any day, and I’ll wager 99% of guys would agree. It’s just her torso that looks abnormally thin, but I imagine she’s sucking it in for the photo, as they all do. Is your real name Chevy Chase, BTW?

  29. Sandmich 说:

    I don’t think the Paris agreement was completely empty, for us. The expectation would be that President Hillary would go about enforcing the treaty as law while limp noodle Congress did nothing and corrupt courts sided with the administration. That was was the sick joke that Trump called out: the treaty only ever had the possibility of being applied to one country and one country only.

    “The thing that mainly irks me about the Global Warming fuss is, in fact, that it directs our political energies towards things we shouldn’t bother about…”. Indeed and part of this is intentional, psychologically if nothing else. There are so many issues to work on that require actual work, but the thought is distressing so it’s a natural tendency for man to focus on something completely beyond his control both as a distraction and as an empty gesture in which to find meaning for their tiny existence.

    Another implicitly anti-white “let the small towns die” article:
    https://www.forbes.com/sites/johntamny/2017/06/04/be-compassionate-but-never-ever-pity-the-forgotten-rural-americans/#56c3f540bf86

    The author wants low skill whites to move to the big cities to compete with immigrant labor. One of the problems I can see with this is that blue collar workers today have to get their information on where to find jobs from their social networks (With the big blue collar unions and the big labor-consuming factories now mostly vanished.) Those social networks exist in the cities for immigrants, but not for native-born white rural Americans. I’m not even sure how many booming cities (the city he refers to specifically is Columbus, Ohio) have neighborhoods in their metro areas where low income white working class families could safely settle.
