Withdrawing from Paris Agreement helps the poor

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,

  1. The Paris agreement raises energy prices
  2. Regulations promulgated under the aegis of the Paris Agreement increase prices and harm the economy.
  3. The Paris Agreement redistributes wealth from taxpayers to international corporations and less developed nations.

This blog article puts the case very concisely.

Elderly man who can only afford to heat himself with one bar of the heater, UK. Will the leaders who went to Paris be living like that?

Who wants to be a carbon trillionaire?

https://steemit.com/climate/@corbettreport/who-wants-to-be-a-carbon-trillionaire Eat your heart out, Al Gore. Being a carbon billionaire is so passé now that we’re in the age of the $100 trillion climate swindle. So the real question is who (or at least which corporate front) will be the first carbon trillionaire? Will it be a carbon eugenics promoting Rockefeller or a global government […]

Go tell it to the birds

City birds use cigarette butts to smoke out parasites

Today I heard on the news that a local anti-smoking lobby group wants new laws to force tobacco companies to take responsibility for the environmental damage done by millions of discarded cigarette butts.

Environmental damage?  Sure, it might not look nice ‘butt’ they can go tell it to the birds, who are lining their nests with cigarette butts to repel pests and keep themselves warm, according to research.

So that’s my ‘rebutt-al.’  I personally don’t smoke – but I dislike slogans and the use of half-truths in pursuit of an agenda.  If this lobby group is going to throw around meaningless slogans like “carbon footprint” or insist that cigarette butts are full of harmful chemicals, they should get their facts straight first.

“You can go tell it to the birds” is an idiom that is used when someone says something that is not credible or is a lie.
