The Left’s Unhinged Freakout over Trump’s Paris Accord Withdrawal

Celebrities, politicians, and climate activists lost their collective mind in the wake of President Trump’s decision to pull out from the agreement. The fatalistic flip-out over Trump’s plan to exit from the Paris Climate Accord is the latest proof that the leaders of the political Left have learned absolutely nothing since November 8. Unlike Trump, who said during his Rose Garden announcement of the planned withdrawal that he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” these woke folks continue to overlook huge swaths of the American public as they try to win a global popularity contest, redistribute our wealth, and lecture us about how ignorant, uncaring, and unaware we are. The drumbeat from tone-deaf celebrities, tech titans, bureaucrats, and political hacks began earlier this week on social media when it became clear Trump would finally act to undo one of Barack Obama’s legacy policies.

On May 28, California billionaire and climate catastrophist Tom Steyer, who donated $87 million to Democratic candidates in 2016 alone, tweeted out his dire assessment of Trump’s expected move. Steyer said Trump would be “committing a traitorous act of war against the American people.” Within moments of Trump’s speech, Steyer said the administration “has just committed assault and battery on the future of the American people. There can be no excuse for this willful crime. Yes, by pulling out of the Paris Agreement, Donald Trump is betraying the moral, political, and economic leadership position America has achieved over centuries at the cost of American lives.” Steyer was joined in agony by fellow Golden State tycoons including Elon Musk, co-founder of Tesla, among other tech enterprises, who had threatened to stop working on two of Trump’s advisory councils if the president pulled out of the Paris agreement. Musk, whose holdings have benefited from nearly $5 billion in government support, tweeted May 31, “Don’t know which way Paris will go, but I’ve done all I can to advise directly to POTUS, through others in the WH & via councils, that we remain.”

After Trump’s announcement, Musk tweeted, “Am departing presidential councils. Climate change is real. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world.” Or for Musk’s bank account, considering how much more in likely government handouts the Paris deal would’ve meant for him. But Musk probably should turn his attention elsewhere: His solar-energy company, SolarCity Corp., is reportedly under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for failing to disclose how many customers have canceled their solar-energy system orders. Tim Cook, CEO of Apple and a major fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, reportedly called the White House this week to urge Trump to stay in the pact. The man who heads an empire built off energy generated by fossil fuels is one of those Silicon Valley sillies who wrongly thinks we can — and need to — live off 100 percent renewables within the next few decades. Celebrities who still haven’t learned that their endorsement of anyone or anything usually yields the opposite of the intended effect also weighed in on Trump’s move. Hollywood’s most prolific climate celeb — the bed-hopping, jet-setting, yacht-cruising Leo DiCaprio — said he hoped Trump would make the “moral” decision to stay in Paris, then tweeted shortly after the president’s announcement that “today, our planet suffered.”

Unhinged showgirl Bette Midler tweeted that Trump’s exit gave “Big Oil a windfall” and that “there has never in US history been such a destructive megalomaniac in the WH. Thank you to US press and other numbskulls who put him there.” Mark Ruffalo, known more for his environmental activism than for his marginal acting, tweeted that if Trump left Paris, the president would “have the death of whole nations on his hands. People will be looking to the USA for retribution for what they loose [sic].” Actress Alyssa Milano, who is approximately 0 for 432 on helping political candidates win, tweeted: “Oh my God, you really are a monster. @realDonaldTrump.” But the topper could go to George Takei of Star Trek fame, who tweeted: “Trump is having us pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. Too bad someone didn’t tell his father that he shoulda pulled out too.” The usual lefty politicians and commentators had their say. Bernie Sanders said leaving Paris would be a “horrific mistake” and an “extraordinary crisis.” Aging broadcaster Tom Brokaw tweeted that “denying climate change is like king Canute trying to stop the tide. Mother nature rules when deniers delude.”

The New York Times’s Paul Krugman moaned that “as the probability of civilization-ending climate change rises, a special shout-out to all those who helped make it possible and yes, this includes media who decided to devote more coverage to Hillary’s emails than to all other policy issues combined.” And the Left’s new darling, California senator Kamala Harris, said Trump’s decision “will have catastrophic repercussions for our planet’s future. There is no Planet B. This disastrous decision threatened the world our children and children’s children will live in.” Activist Bill McKibben wrote in the New York Times that this was “our nation’s dumbest act since launching the war in Iraq.” (McKibben has said we should fight climate change in the same way we fought World War II.) Not one mention from this crowd about how this move will save hundreds of thousands of jobs, stop nearly $3 trillion from being sucked out of our economy, and prevent rising energy prices estimated to cost American households thousands of dollars each year. Democrats may want to consider recalibrating their political messaging here. As conservative writer Bret Stephens, now a New York Times columnist, and hardly a Trump supporter, tweeted Thursday afternoon: “Likelihood of Trump re-election grows. Esp by backing out of Paris. Advice to Dems: recover your blue collar base!” Seven months post-election, this week’s reaction from the left again proves that their taking that advice is as unlikely as ever.

    Trump: ‘We’re getting out’ of ‘very unfair’ Paris Climate Agreement

    PARIS, France, June 1, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — President Trump made good on a major campaign promise today, announcing that the U.S. will “cease all implementation of the non-binding Paris accord,” commonly called the Paris Climate Agreement.

    The agreement seeks to reduce worldwide carbon dioxide emissions with quotas enforced by taxes and subsidies for poorer countries.

    Pro-life organizations opposed the Paris Climate Agreement because they say it was pro-abortion. Voice of the Family said “the agreement contains language designed to promote abortion and contraception.”

    The Paris agreement calls for countries to “promote … gender equality, empowerment of women and intergenerational equity,” among other things. These phrases, pro-lifers say, are common to U.N. documents as euphemisms for the promotion of homosexuality and abortion.

    The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals lists 17 major goals with 169 subsidiary “targets” to be funded. One major goal is “gender equality” to “empower all women and girls.” Its “target” to be funded is to “ensure universal access to sexual and reproductive health and reproductive rights.”

    Other U.N. documents also use “gender equality” and “empowerment of women” to mean the promotion of abortion.

    The president focused on economic reasons for his decision, explaining that the Obama-negotiated agreement put U.S. employers and employees at a “permanent disadvantage” with China, India, and other countries. He said the agreement would “punish” his country with “onerous energy restrictions” that would slow the nation’s economic recovery from its recession under Obama.

    The president also pointed out that the agreement places an unfair financial burden on the U.S., which has already reduced its carbon-dioxide emissions by 12 percent since 2006 and is already a Clean Energy leader.

    Critics of the agreement say it would ultimately cost the U.S. $3 trillion and also 6.5 million industrial and manufacturing sector jobs. Furthermore, the agreement would punish the U.S. for emissions but allow other countries such as China to get away with heavy emissions. In fact, critics claim that under the Paris Agreement China will actually increase emissions until 2030.

    “The bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States,” Trump explained.

    Trump criticized the agreement’s Green Climate Fund, which seeks to take $100 billion from affluent countries to subsidize poorer countries’ climate change efforts. “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries gaining financial advantage over the United States,” he reasoned.

    The one concession Trump offered was an openness to negotiating a new agreement that would be less burdensome to U.S. companies. “We’re getting out,” Trump characteristically blurted, “but we will start to negotiate and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair.”

    Liberal politicians, environmentalists and globalists condemned the president’s move. Former Vice President Al Gore called it “reckless and indefensible.” Former President Barack Obama issued a statement charging, “This administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future.” Democrat politicians called it a “betrayal,” “traitorous,” and “one of the worst foreign policy blunders in our nation’s history.” Environmentalists called Trump’s nation a “climate deadbeat” and accused Trump himself of having “total contempt for our planet’s future.”

    The Vatican entered the climate agreement fray as well. Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, characterized Trump’s decision as “a huge slap in the face for us” and “a disaster for everyone.”

    But other Roman Catholic leaders disputed Sorondo’s characterization. Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute told Church Militant, “Bishop Sorondo’s claim that this is a slap in the face is absurd and hypocritical.”

    “Not only is so-called man-made global climate change not settled science, but let’s not forget that it was Bishop Sorondo who betrayed the Church and the entire pro-life movement by hosting a cadre of population-control enthusiasts in a Vatican-sponsored meeting. It was Bishop Sorondo who invited pro-abortion socialist Bernie Sanders to attend a Vatican meeting during the U.S. presidential campaign,” Hichborn said.

    “Just exactly who is slapping whom in the face here?” he asked. “If Bishop Sorondo cared as much for souls as he seems to care for trees, perhaps the Church wouldn’t be facing the crisis of faith She now faces.”

    More than 190 nations signed the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 and another 147 joined since then, and so pressure on the president to acquiesce was at an all-time high. His own administration was divided on whether to keep or dump the agreement.

    The president said he will stick to the agreement’s withdrawal process, which will not be completed until after the next presidential election.

  3. It is fascinating to see the Left’s reaction to the President’s withdrawal from the Globalist Climate Change Hoax Fest.
    In my country also the left – which is just about everyone in any position of power and influence i.e. journalists, teachers, academics, scientists on the public payroll, pre-school carers, social workers, politicians and public servants – are freaking out at Mr Trump’s action.
    How dare anyone actually challenge the established secular humanist religion of the elite!
    The longer Trump governs, the more things the Left are going to find they are able to be hysterical about.
    They are indeed showing their true colours. Their childish antics are but a foretaste of what a totalitarian society ruled by them will be like. The holding up of Mr Trump’s severed head by one of their spokesmen (I guess that should be spokeswomen) is a true indication of just what they would do to all of us non Leftists if they could. Deep down, or not so deep down, these people are just plain nasty.
