A news day ahead …..

Today’s big news will be the Paris Climate Agreement. We still think the President will choose to back out, but in doing so propose the world meet and develop an alternate plan that raises the bar and shares the burden to make a true impact.  What was the agreement?

The Paris agreement was adopted on December 12, 2015 at the conclusion of the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference. Parties to the agreement are expected to begin taking measures to reduce emissions in 2020, mainly by enacting rules that sharply reduce carbon emissions. Countries are supposed to publicly announce “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions” to combat climate change and periodically report on their progress.  The Obama administration announced the U.S. would commit to reduce emissions by 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, a quarter of which was supposedly achievable by the implementation of the previous administration’s legally-questionable Clean Power Plan.

Why were Trump and conservatives against the agreement?  Here’s what conservatives have said since Obama signed it.

“The Paris climate agreement was deeply flawed from its start. It was legally and constitutionally suspect, based on politics rather than science, and contained unrealistic goals. It promised not only a dramatic expansion of the administrative state and a huge increase in the regulatory burden on American businesses, it threatened to put the brakes on U.S. economic output at a time when most economists think the U.S. will struggle to achieve even a meager two percent growth. 
It’s likely that it was already acting as a drag on the U.S. economy. After President Barack Obama unofficially committed the U.S. to the Paris agreement, businesses began preparing for its impact. Knowing that it would diminish U.S. economic output, businesses invested less and directed more investment toward less-productive technology to meet the climate deal’s mandates. Banks and financier withdrew capital from sectors expected to suffer under the climate deal and pushed it toward those expected to benefit. A classic example of regulation-driven malinvestment.
What impact would withdrawal have on the climate.
Trump and conservatives say zero to almost nothing. The liberal environmentalists say The U.S. could contribute to an increase  of 0.3 (3 tenths of one degree) Celsius in global temperatures by the end of the century if if abandons the deal.
If you want more here’s a conservative and liberal view of the agreement:
Hillary is hurting herself:

It seems daily these days Hillary is speaking somewhere and blaming someone or something for her loss. Yesterday it was the DNC. Wait, the same DNC that we were told was so far ahead of the RNC? What, they had no voting data compiled?
Really Hillary you lost because of the sleaze factor that you and your husband were seen as by so many. They held their nose and voted for Donald Trump. And you know what? Polls say they would do it again.

Subpoena’s  not covered:

Isn’t it funny how the MSM did not cover the subpoena’s of three Obama cabinet members (Fox did) on the released American ames?nn
