The 10 Dumbest Reactions to Trump Quitting the Paris Climate Accord

By Grabien News:

The Paris climate accord is a largely symbolic gesture that even supporters acknowledge lacks enforcement mechanisms and, even if successful, will have a statistically insignificant impact on the climate.

Reuters reports that U.S. carbon emissions will fall over the next decade — regardless of whether America remains in COP21 treaty.

Nevertheless, the news that Trump is officially withdrawing America from the accord has brought on a level of hyperbole that is almost … anti-science in its sheer disproportionality.

As of 6:31 PM, here are the 10 dumbest reactions to Trump’s decision thus far.

10. Democratic super-donor Tom Steyer — who as an investor in many green-tech companies is anything but a disinterested party — thundered that Trump is “committing a traitorous act of war against the American people.”

9. John Kerry, one of the deal’s leading negotiators, said Trump is not helping the “forgotten Americans” he pledged to elevate, but instead will give their kids asthma (perhaps as soon as this summer!).

8. The ACLU, an organization ostensibly centered around civil rights, offered the bizarre claim that leaving the Paris agreement is “a massive step back for racial justice and an assault on communities of color across the U.S.”

7. CNN’s Fareed Zakaria upped the crazy a notch higher, telling Jake Tapper “this will be the day that the United States resigned as the leader of the free world.”

6. Elon Musk, who runs three companies that all depend to some degree on the idea that carbon dioxide will destroy planet Earth, said he takes America’s removal from this largely symbolic agreement so seriously that he’s going to make up the difference and stop crisscrossing the world in a private jet. Just kidding, he said he’s resigning his symbolic post on a symbolic presidential council.

5. Barack Obama, breaking again with the tradition of erstwhile presidents refraining from attacking their successors, channeled his inner Miss Cleo, arguing he knows what the future holds, and Trump’s decision means America now “joins a handful of nations that reject the future.” (Obama’s prophesy, for those wondering, foretells a “low-carbon” world that showers wealth upon fellow believers.)

4. MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch, apparently seeking a compelling way to express his philosophical differences with Trump, said the president “is a sociopath.” Also, “very dangerous.”

3. John Kerry — yes, he appears twice in this list — also released a lengthy statement on Facebook, in which he made the utterly-lacking-in-perspective take that Trump’s decision “will rightly be remembered as one of the most shameful any president has made.” Really? Worse than FDR locking up innocent Japanese Americans? Worse than President Adams outlawing criticism of his administration, and jailing critics? Worse than JFK’s Bay of Pigs fiasco? Think before you Facebook, Mr. Kerry!

2. Serial fabricator/MSNBC anchor Brian Williams intoned that “on a sunny day in the Rose Garden,” President Trump delivered a “dark speech,” and then approvingly quoted an Obama official who likened Trump to Hugo Chavez.

1. Apparently of the opinion that Kathy Griffin pretending to behead Trump wasn’t quite distasteful enough, an editorial cartoonist for the Australian Financial Review, David Rowe, likened Trump leaving the Paris agreement to … beheading the entire planet.

1970s – We were supposed to freeze to death by now… Then they changed it up to we are going to broil… which is it? Freeze or Bake?

    Keep in mind that a lot of these so called climate scientist are only fooling around with this for the grants they can get, some times are millions of dollars so there is a reason for all of the screaming, its money! One study that came out of MIT they said that from what they could come up with the temp will only rise a half a degree in the coming years. The US has already lowered the carbon emissions in the US in the past ten years because of the fracking instead of drilling for oil. From what I read a few months ago TX is sitting in a lake of crude oil, today there is equipment that has been developed that makes it much easier to find new deposits of oil. The U.S. is also loaded with natural gas Pres.Trump wants to get us off of the Saudi oil tit so we don’t have to pay the Saudi government billions for their oil that is shipped to the U.S. yearly.
    Also dumping this this insane climate accord is going to save the taxpayers billions of dollars since we don’t have to hand over one dime to their so called Green Fund that would be handed out to third world countries to do as they please with it. Most of it disappears into a black hole of secret bank accounts offshore. Every year the amount the U.S. taxpayers would be shelling out to these third world countries would get higher and higher with India and China not putting in anything along with Germany and most of the EU doing the same thing they are doing about not paying their fair share at the UN. The crazies that are screaming about it can pay into the Green Fund if they want to throw away their money but the U.S. taxpayers sure won’t be doing that!
