He says: In my first inaugural address, I committed this country to the tireless task of combating climate change and protecting this planet for future generations.
Two weeks ago, in Paris, I said before the world that we needed a strong global agreement to accomplish this goal — an enduring agreement that reduces global carbon pollution and sets the world on a course to a low-carbon future.
A few hours ago, we succeeded. We came together around the strong agreement the world needed. We met the moment.
Today, thanks to strong, principled, American leadership, that’s the world that we’ll leave to our children — a world that is safer and more secure, more prosperous, and more free. And that is our most important mission in our short time here on this Earth.
How exactly curtailing energy use will make the world safer and more prosperous remains unclear; trebling the cost of heating and lighting their homes and driving their cars would seem a counter-intuitive way to help the poor, although burdening those unfortunate people has always been a hallmark of Democratic policy.
What is clearer, though; in fact, perfectly clear, is how this treaty will help Obama and his crowd grab still more power for the central government – when you can pick and choose between winners and losers in a trillion dollar playing field, you win, and when you can impose your vision of what cars people should drive, if at all, where they should live, and how their income should be allocated, you win again, and when your rich friends in business can be helped to get even richer, all is bliss.
Why Obama wants to strip wealth from the taxpaying middle class and ship it to the most corrupt regimes in Africa whose leaders will, in turn, bank it in Switzerland is probably obvious to more political savvy people than I, but it probably has something to do with Barry’s disdain and hatred of our middle class.
Will we be seeing an objective assessment of this deal in our national media? Well, here’s a video of “reporters” in Paris reacting to news of the accord. Apparently we have brainwashed high schoolers covering world events these days.That’s encouraging.
