Bruce Burleson – June 1, 2017 

 

 

The usual moonbats’ painful screams are all but totally predictable.  There’s panic in the air.

 

John Kerry: “It’s a shameful moment for the U.S.”

 

Bill Nye: “You can’t build a wall around carbon emissions.”

 

Chris Mooney (WaPo): “It just doesn’t add up.”

 

Elon Musk: “I’m departing presidential councils. Climate change is real.  (Earth to Elon: it’s been real and shifting radically for 4.5 billion years, but that’s another whole article.)

Philip Rucker and Jenna Johnson (WaPo):  The president’s decision “dismayed America’s allies and thwarted the global effort to address the warming planet… [and] alarmed leaders around the world, drawing swift and sharp condemnation from foreign officials.”

Translation: We finally have a president who actually puts America first and makes decisions based on the interests of American workers, not the fat hacks and smug sanctimonious globalists in Paris, Brussels as well as most of our own universities.

But let’s not stop there.  As everyone hollers about CO2 emissions, let’s review what Calvin Fray wrote about this in his book Climate Change Reality Check which came out last year.   

According to Fray—who by the way strongly encourages us to check his facts wherever and whenever we can— human activity accounts for only about 4% of the CO2 in the earth’s atmosphere. “96 percent of the CO2 in the atmosphere,” Fray informs us, “is going to be there no matter what humans do… Keep in mind, CO2 is 0.039% of the earth’s atmosphere anyway.So, doing the math, the 29 gigatons of CO2 that humans release into the atmosphere every year account for 0.0015% of the total CO2 content in the atmosphere.

In other words, to use an expression I keep seeing in the media lately—climate change caused by CO2 emissions is one big nothing-burger.

We all remember all the doomsday predictions of environmentalists going back 40 years or more.  The coastlines were supposed to be flooded; the polar icecaps were supposed to have melted.  And so on, and so on.  But none of it has come to pass, and there’s zero evidence any of it will.  In fact, scientists who once screeched about melting ice now have to grudgingly admit the ice has in fact been increasing for several years.  So much for gloom and doom.

Despite the fact there’s about as much evidence of human-induced global warming as there is for the Russians steering the Trump campaign (none), the left will continue to double down on its false narratives and lies.  We have a president now who is hearing none of it—especially from the Hollywood elitists, activists, and politicians who hypocritically jet-set from one climate change conference to another, spewing out more CO2 in an hour than most of us will in a year.  We must continue to support him as we certainly haven’t seen the last patty on the left’s nothing-burger grill.
