Whatever we feel about Trump, I heartily agree with him keeping his election promise in pulling the US out of that Paris Climate rort, and wish my country would do the same. Why? This rotten deal is nothing but U.N. wealth redistribution.
NZ is a small nation of 4 million people, yet we are going to spend 1.4 billion dollars per year on this
rort Enron type agreement. It’s money we don’t have! I know because last year the government talked about borrowing a billion to build badly needed housing.
People in NZ ask, to who our wealth would be going? It seems the United Nations Green Climate Fund. Who is in that?
Do you think the third world governments, dictators and crony capitalists like Al Gore really give a stuff about the environment?
One of the projects was a dam in Nepal, where they want to generate electricity for export to energy-hungry India. Nepal and China-based Zhejiang Hydropower Construction and Installation Co will get the money, and India will get the power – at the cost of the environment and other nations.
Ironically, green groups are against the dams. Well, they shouldn’t have supported the climate hysteria which is enabling this wealth heist.
Green groups condemn UN plan to use $136m from climate fund for large dams
Here’s why we should demand that our governments get out of this deal,
- The Paris agreement raises energy prices
- Regulations promulgated under the aegis of the Paris Agreement increase prices and harms the economy.
- The Paris Agreement redistributes wealth from taxpayers to international corporations and less developed nations.
This blog article puts the case very concisely.
