Trump to Hold Session on Religious Persecution Instead of Attending U.N. Climate Summit

President Donald Trump says he intends to skip the upcoming United Nations climate summit.

Published

President Donald Trump says he intends to skip the upcoming United Nations climate summit and will instead hold a session on religious persecution across the world.

It has to be said that it is a brilliant move to focus on something that is REAL instead of wasting time and money attending a summit on something that is a hoax.

Trump said he will skip the absurd, communist power grab meeting on Monday, according to CNN. This is not the first time Trump has ignored the world’s climate spectacles. He also skipped the climate baloney held during the recent G7 Summit in France.

So, what is this latest climate nonsense all about?

According to CNN:

Marcia Bernicat, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for oceans and international environmental and scientific affairs, will represent the United States at the U.N. Secretary General’s Climate Summit, a State Department official says.

The U.N. Secretary-General has said only the “boldest and most transformative actions would make the stage” of the summit — which likely would not include Trump, who withdrew from the Paris climate accord and rolled back Obama-era emissions standards.

Naturally, the U.N.’s blather on climate is all meaningless gobbledegook. After all, despite the arm waving and dire warnings that we must “do something” to stop global warming, the U.N. continues to refuse to hold the biggest polluters on the planet (China, the Asian countries, and India) to account for anything. These polluters are left to do whatever they want with no finger-wagging from the U.N. despite that these regions are by many times more profligate in their pollution that the rest of the world.

The U.N. is a joke and should be ignored. Especially on climate change.

Instead, Trump will focus on religious prosecution, which is a real problem, unlike the fantasy of global warming.

The sessions will overlap. According to the draft agenda, China’s representative will speak at the climate summit around the same time Trump’s religious persecution event is getting underway.

“This event seeks to highlight and broaden international support for protecting religious freedom in the wake of increasing persecution of people on the basis of their own beliefs and faiths, and a growing number of attacks on and destruction of houses of worship, religious sites, and relics by state and nonstate actors,” a senior administration official told reporters on Friday during a briefing call about Trump’s trip.

Trump’s is a much better plan.

President Donald Trump Officially Pulling Out of Paris Accord Climate Change Agreement

President Donald Trump revealed this week that he is officially pulling the United States out of the Paris Accord climate change agreement.

Published

on

Marking another campaign promise kept, President Donald Trump revealed this week that he is officially pulling the United States out of the Paris Accord climate change agreement.

On Monday, the president noted that after years of waiting, the United Nations has now been told that the U.S. will officially pull out of the accords. Trump said the process to exit the agreement will start immediately.

The announcement was revealed in a statement Monday from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

“President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement,” Pompeo said. “The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy.”

Trump has always criticized the accord and made a promise to get the U.S. out of the deal if he became president.

He continued bashing the agreement after winning the White House.

For instance, in a speech in the White House Rose Garden in June of 2017, Trump slammed the accord as a “bad deal” for the U.S.A. because it allowed major polluters like China, India, and other countries to continue increasing emissions while hampering the U.S. with economy-killing rules.

“The fact that the Paris deal hamstrings the United States while empowering some of the world’s top-polluting countries should dispel any doubt as to why foreign lobbyists wish to keep our magnificent country tied up and bound by this agreement,” Trump said.

The decision comes ahead of the kick-off of the 2020 election campaign season and will undoubtedly serve as a selling point of being a promise the president has kept while in office.

California SLAMMED by EPA Over Pollution Relating to Homelessness

This is just the latest spat between the President and The Golden State.

Published

on

For weeks, the Trump administration has been at odds with the State of California regarding its own environmental regulations.

For starters, the Golden State had planned to implement new regulations regarding emissions for commuter cars  – something that the White House worked to strike down.

President Donald Trump’s plan to eliminate California’s right to set its own auto emissions standards could spur automakers to make larger vehicles that emit more tailpipe pollution, which contributes to climate change.

But the automakers may not dramatically shift their strategies.

Trump’s plan, which he disclosed Wednesday in a series of tweets, is likely to be delayed in a federal court battle with California. Under a federal waiver, California has historically set stricter emissions standards, but Trump is attempting to cancel the waiver.

He pledged that the move would create “much less expensive” vehicles and “new, extremely environmentally friendly cars.”

This sparked a nasty war of words between California lawmakers and President Trump, which has now come full circle as the President decries the state’s embarrassing homelessness epidemic and the pollution that comes along with it.

In yet another strike against California, the Trump administration accused the state of “failing to protect Californians from degraded water,” specifically citing concerns about waste from homeless populations getting into sewer systems.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler wrote to California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday alleging the state has not addressed water pollution tied to thehomelessness crisis in major cities like San Francisco, specifically when the sewer system can overflow during heavy rain and release untreated water into other areas like the San Francisco Bay.

The issue of homelessness, particularly in San Francisco, has spawned a number of creative, neighborhood-specific solutions to the problem.

Just this week, large boulders were placed on city sidewalks in order to prevent vagrants and the disenfranchised from camping out in front of homes and businesses.

Child Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Slams Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ Green New Deal

Child climate activist Greta Thunberg has been making leftists squeal with delight with her wild-eyed global warming proclamations.

Published

Child climate activist Greta Thunberg has been making leftists squeal with delight with her wild-eyed global warming proclamations, but the media has been a little less interested in the little girl’s obvious slam of the Democrats’ so-called Green New Deal.

Thunberg, the fraud who wasted thousands in fuel, and racked up all sorts of carbon emissions by flying her boat crew to the U.S.A. so they could sail her boat back to Sweden, was all over the news with her denunciation of the world for destroying “her” future.

But, as Hot Air noted, without naming them directly she also attacked the Democrats for their pointless Green New Deal plan because it doesn’t go far enough.

“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean,” Thunberg scolded. “Yet, you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words…We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.”

This pint-sized fanatic then claimed that adults are all “evil” because they are destroying her future.

But then she slammed the “solutions” of the Green New Deal.

“The popular idea of cutting our emissions in half in ten years only gives us a 50 percent chance of staying below 1.5 degrees and the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.” She then said, “A fifty percent risk is simply not acceptable to us, we who have to live with the consequences.”

The little parrot has also insisted that there is only 8-1/2 years to “fix” the earth.

“To have a 67 percent chance of staying below a 1.5 Celcius global temperature rise, the best odds given by the IPCC, the world had 420 gigatons of CO2 left to emit back on January 1, 2018,” she said. “Today that figure is already down to less than 350 gigatons…With today’s emissions levels, that remaining CO2 budget will be entirely gone in less than 8 1/2 years.”

That is even less than the absurd number of 11 or 12 years that other climate religionists quote.

Ex-Climate Change Believer Gives Theory on Global Warming in Amazing Twitter Thread

Published

on

Activist and hip hop artist An0maly recently confessed that he used to be a believer in climate change, but after actually looking onto the left’s claims and finding lie after lie, he realized that the whole thing was a hoax.

On Friday, the musician jumped to his Twitter account with a great thread of posts laying out his case against the theory of global warming.

“I was a huge believer in Climate Change as a youth,” the musician wrote on September 20. “I wanted to save the environment. Then I caught one lie. Then two. Then three. Then I read the current data. Then I realized they’ve been exaggerating & fear-mongering headlines for decades.”

Worse, “They are brainwashing the kids,” he wrote.

From there, An0maly went on with example after example of how the liberals have lied about global warming.

WATCH: Brilliant Take Down of Climate Change-Pushing Millennials

WATCH a great commentary on how stupid these soft, entitled millennials are for believing in the global warming hoax.

Published

on

An Australian news presenter gets kudos this week for reading a great commentary on how stupid these soft, entitled millennials are for believing in the global warming hoax. It is a bit of video that is not to be missed.

The piece was read by Sky News Australia presenter Alan Jones on Friday after millions of kids across the world skipped school to attend the absurd “Climate Strike” events.

Jones was reading from a great take down of the snot-nosed millennials called “Growing Up.”

It absolutely skewers the silly, uneducated, selfish, entitled kids who think they understand science even as they live their entire lives as if there is no global warming to worry about at all.

Here is the segment on video:

But if you don’t want to watch, here is what Jones said:

“We come to this piece that someone sent to me and I thought I’d share it with you, it’s called ‘Growing Up.'”

“Few commentaries on this global warming hoax have had greater relevance than this — I think I might send it to Al Gore — and is says this.”

“To all the school kids going on strike for climate change, you’re the first generation who’ve required air conditioning in every classroom. You want TV in every room. And your classes are all computerized.”

“You spend all day and night on electronic devices. More than ever you don’t walk or ride bikes to school, but you arrive in caravans of private cars that choke suburban roads and worsen rush hour traffic.”

“You’re the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever, and update perfectly good, expensive luxury items to stay trendy. Your entertainment comes from electronic devices.”

“Furthermore, the people driving your protests are the same people who insist on artificially inflating the population growth through immigration, which increases the need for energy, manufacturing, and transport. The more people we have, the forest and bushland we clear, the more of the environment that’s destroyed.”

“How about this: tell your teachers to switch off the air-conditioning. Walk or ride a bike to school. Switch off your devices and read a book. Make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food.”

“No, none of this will happen. Because, you’re selfish, badly educated, virtue signaling, little turds, inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a noble cause while the indulge themselves in western luxury, and unprecedented quality of life.”

“The piece ends by saying, wake up, grow up, and shut up until you’re sure of the facts before protesting.”

Trump Administration Shoots Down California’s Competing Fuel Standard Rules

The U.S. government has just announced that California’s tougher fuel standards are null and void and that there will be only one national standard.

Published

on

The State of California has attempted to make its own, stricter, fuel standards on cars sold there, but the U.S. government has just announced that California’s tougher rules are null and void and that there will be only one national standard.

On Thursday, the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency insisted that there will be “one, and only one” national fuel standard and that whatever California thinks it is doing is null and void, the Washington Examiner reported.

“This action will help ensure that there will be one, and only one, set of national fuel economy and greenhouse gas emission standards for vehicles,” the agencies said in a press release.

The government added that California will lose the waiver that has until now allowed it to force different standards on the auto industry than the federal ones.

“Moving forward, California must continue to enforce its programs to address smog and other forms of traditional air pollution caused by motor vehicles. The state must redouble its efforts to address the worst air quality in the United States and finally achieve compliance with EPA’s National Ambient Air Quality Standards, where for decades it has failed to address serious, severe, and extreme non-compliance status in several areas within the state,” the agencies added.

This will free the auto industry from having to satisfy California’s stricter rules for new cars.

On Thursday, President Trump took a shot at California on Twitter.

Trump wrote:

The Trump Administration is revoking California’s Federal Waiver on emissions in order to produce far less expensive cars for the consumer, while at the same time making the cars substantially SAFER. This will lead to more production because of this pricing and safety advantage, and also due to the fact that older, highly polluting cars, will be replaced by new, extremely environmentally friendly cars. There will be very little difference in emissions between the California Standard and the new U.S. Standard, but the cars will be far safer and much less expensive. Many more cars will be produced under the new and uniform standard, meaning significantly more JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! Automakers should seize this opportunity because without this alternative to California, you will be out of business.

Naturally, the State of California’s representatives claim they will sue to reinstate their harsher rules.

NASA Corrects the Left’s Forest Fire Claim: Reports ‘Overall Drop in Natural and Human-Caused Fires Worldwide’

Just the facts.

Published

on

Even NASA has now been forced to jump in to correct the left’s lies about forest fires. The science agency just reported that the number of the world’s wildfires have actually decreased over the last two decades.

Despite the left’s claims that forest fires are increasing because of global warming, NASA has found just the opposite. Indeed, NASA now says that global forest fires have decreased by 24 percent since 1998.

“Using NASA satellites to detect fires and burn scars from space, researchers have found that an ongoing transition from nomadic cultures to settled lifestyles and intensifying agriculture has led to a steep drop in the use of fire for land clearing and an overall drop in natural and human-caused fires worldwide,” the NASA Earth Observatory reported this month.

“Globally, the total acreage burned by fires declined 24 percent between 1998 and 2015, according to a new paper published in Science,” NASA added. “Scientists determined that the decline in burned area was greatest in savannas and grasslands, where fires are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems and habitat conservation.”

Forbes magazine writer Michael Shellenberger recently added that “Between 2003 and 2015, the area burned in Africa declined by an area the size of Texas.”

“And against the picture painted by celebrities and the mainstream media that fires around the world are caused by economic growth, the truth is the opposite: the amount of land being burned is declining thanks to development, including urbanization,” Shellenberger continued.

“That’s because the amount of land being converted into ranches and farms has been going down, not up, and because more of it is being done with machines than with fire,” he wrote.

NASA also recently destroyed the left’s claim that the Amazon is burning at an accelerated rate. In fact, the fires in Brazil are not much different than they were last year.

Also according to NASA’s Earth Observatory website, the fires in Brazil are just about the same as last year.

In the Amazon region, fires are rare for much of the year because wet weather prevents them from starting and spreading. However, in July and August, activity typically increases due to the arrival of the dry season. Many people use fire to maintain farmland and pastures or to clear land for other purposes. Typically, activity peaks in early September and mostly stops by November.

As of August 16, 2019, an analysis of NASA satellite data indicated that total fire activity across the Amazon basin this year has been close to the average in comparison to the past 15 years. (The Amazon spreads across Brazil, Peru, Colombia, and parts of other countries.) Though activity appears to be above average in the states of Amazonas and Rondônia, it has so far appeared below average in Mato Grosso and Pará, according to estimates from the Global Fire Emissions Database, a research project that compiles and analyzes NASA data. (Note that while the chart label says 2016, the 2019 data is listed on all of the plots as a green line. Roll your cursor over the green 2019 block below the plot to isolate the 2019 numbers.)

So, even as the liberals are all whining about the end of the Amazon, it turns out that nearly everything they are saying to raise global warming fears is based on lies.
