The New American, Alex Newman: It turns out that President Donald Trump was right, after all. The United Nations finally admitted last week what virtually every sensible observer had already realized. In short, the so-called UN “Paris Agreement” pretending to battle alleged man-made global warming will make no real difference in the global climate, even if you accept the UN’s discredited hypothesis and models surrounding CO2 driving temperature change.
Of course, that is not how the UN phrased it. Instead, the “dictators club,” as critics refer to the UN, was trying to drum up support for even more extreme sacrifices of liberty, self-government, and prosperity to satisfy the wrath of the climate gods. But by beating the dead and mutilated climate horse, the UN inadvertently confirmed that even under its debunked models, the “climate” regime adopted by Obama and others in Paris would not come anywhere close to staving off the supposedly impending Apocalypse caused by your breathing and your SUV.
In fact, based on the UN’s phony projections, the Paris Agreement wouldn’t make a dent in the alleged problem, even if every government and tyrant actually obeyed the pledges — something no serious person expects to happen anyway. more …
Opinion: Whoa, Nellie, while I fully agree with President Trump’s stepping out of the Paris wealth redistribution/smother America scheme, before we celebrate, Alex Newman reminds us that Barack Obama’s illegal executive order adopting the Paris agreement has not yet been formally repudiated, meaning the bureaucracies could conceivably continue implementing its provisions.
And if it is not repudiated before another progressive takes office, all Trump will have accomplished is a postponement of an economic tsunami that would have weakened the US while China and India, both of whom were exempt from the agreement until 2030, would thrive.

If we are where I think we are on the Bible’s timeline, climate change will be a necessary plank in the platform of a global dictator.

A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.” Daniel 7:23
