TOM HARRIS: "KILLING THE PARIS AGREEMENT IS NOT ENOUGH"

Posted 18 May 2017

Tom Harris, of the International Climate Science Coalition, writes at The Daily Caller:  "If President Trump merely pulls the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, it will be like cutting the head off a dandelion. It will look good for a while until equally bad agreements quickly grow back when a Democrat occupies the White House again. Trump needs to dig up the roots of Paris - the 1992 U.N. climate treaty - if he is to keep his campaign promise to 'stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to the U.N. global warming programs.'

Referring most particularly to climate science politicization, Stephens wrote that 'Demanding abrupt and expensive changes in public policy raises fair questions about ideological intentions. Censoriously asserting one's moral superiority and treating skeptics as imbeciles and deplorables wins few converts.'

CLIMATE REALISTS HOPING FOR MORE PROMPT ACTION BY PRESIDENT TRUMP

Posted 17 April 2017

Justin Worland writes in Time magzine: "The past eight years have not been kind to people who dispute that the climate is changing. Leading scientists strengthened the case that the earth is warming and humans are at fault, while the Obama administration prioritized fighting its effects.  As with so much else, the election of President Trump has ushered in a new day. Since taking office, Trump has moved to gut Obama's signature climate change regulations, signed executive orders to aid the fossil fuel industry and installed a critic of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as its head.
