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.

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 […]

Making money from infidelity

Ashley MadisonAfter Gay Marriage was passed into law I wondered what would happen with adultery.  I wrote that lawyers and MPs in the U.K. said adultery would simply be abolished as a grounds for divorce.

Adultery is now being advertised on TV and the radio here in NZ, through joining the Ashley Madison website.

Can anything halt the moral slide?  What’s going to be acceptable next?

Since the website has been hacked and names released on the dark web, there have been two suicides and the founder and chief executive of the Ashley Madison infidelity dating website, Noel Biderman, has stepped down.

Also, the surge in popularity of “hookup apps” has been blamed for an increase in the number of STD infections.

This is what happens when what’s immoral is made legit and legal.

When there’s no moral compass, the people cast off all restraint.

Is it worth it?

As for the hacking scandal, there is a Bible proverb that says “Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out.” Proverbs 10:9.
