Rand Paul Blasts Panicking Morons Freaking Out About Paris Accord Withdrawal
The left is still in full freakout over Trump pulling out of the Paris agreement (see Donald Trump to Pull USA Out of Awful Paris Climate Accord and HELL YES! Trump Pulls USA Out of Paris Climate Agreement. Liberals MELT DOWN!). The way they're acting, you'd think Trump misspelled a tweet. Or got two scoops of ice cream when everyone else only got one.
But move over, outrages. Because the most insane of panics revolves around "mass extinction." Yes, some people are a bit hyperbolic. This is where Sen. Ran Paul is all like, "Nah, bro..."
But your previous guest sounded like, my goodness, the sky is falling, mass extinction. Really? I don’t think we should be alarmists about this. The planet is 4.5 billion years old. We have gone through great extremes of climate change natural and now we may have man-made influence as well.
They act as if it’s a given that man is the only source of climate change. My goodness, the great climate changes in our history happened before the industrial revolution. So is there climate change could man have an impact? Yes, but let’s not be such alarmists that if we don’t sign the Paris accord that there’s going to be mass extinction? That’s a ridiculous statement.
We would have gone with GTFO, but the Senator still needs to be dignified. I'm not burdened with such obligations of decorum.
Trump outlined much of the crap the Paris accord forced the United States into. Rand Paul touched on some of the terrible deals as well. But the main, macro takeaway is this: the Paris accord was a shake down. It punished the success of the United States in the form of awful regulations and "Give us your money, you earth-hating heathens." With a teeny, tiny, itty-bitty promise that maybe the Earth's temperature needle might sway?
The accord would've taken away a lot of choices and control from America and put it in the hands of shady, unelected, globalist goons who point and laugh at mob movies for their innacuracy. As president, Trump correctly determined it was a terrible deal for the United States. Which, contrary to what the left is saying, withdrawing will not lead to cataclysmic catastrophe. These Chicken Little predictions brought to you by the people who love science. And pick their genders like they're choosing shoes.
Good on you Rand Paul, for calling out the idiocy.
