According to what Jon writes in the first article below, there was nothing binding about the Paris Agreement (which is what I hinted at in this previous Kp blog post), because the US Senate did not approve it.
The second article points out how Al Gore exemplifies those who have tried to profit from the “global warming” (fear mongering) agenda, and apparently has done pretty well (financially) because of it.
“June 1, 2017, a day that will live in infamy for the liars, thieves, and killers of the new international economic order. They will see it as infamy, because their plan to sink the economy of America into a final death rattle has been rejected by Trump.
“Fake climate science has been the lynch pin, justifying orders to cut CO2 emissions—but make no mistake about it, cutting emissions means cutting energy production in almost all countries of the world. THAT’S THE GLOBALIST TARGET. ENERGY PRODUCTION.
“…it is up to people everywhere, who have active brain cells and can see through the climate hoax, to take this opportunity to reject, publicly, the whole climate agenda. CO2 is not the enemy.
“Obama signed on in Paris, knowing full well he was committing a criminally unconstitutional act by disregarding the vote of the US senate, a vote that was needed to confer legitimacy to the agreement. There is nothing binding about the Paris “Treaty.” Nothing.”
“With Trump’s historic rejection of the Paris climate treaty, Al Gore is deep in a funk. But don’t weep for Al. He can still amuse himself counting his money. Yes, Al’s done very well for himself hustling the “settled science” all these years, shilling for an energy-depleted Globalist utopia.
“In 2001, Al was worth less than $2 million. By 2012, it was estimated he’d piled up a nice neat $100 million in his lock box… he invested in 14 green companies, who inhaled—via loans, grants and tax relief—somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.5 billion from the federal government to go greener… Gore’s investments paid off, because the federal government was providing massive cash backup to those companies. It’s nice to have friends in high places.
“Then there was a company called Johnson Controls. It made batteries, including those for electric cars. Gore’s investment company… doubled its holdings in Johnson Controls in 2008, when shares cost as little $9 a share. Gore sold when shares cost $21 to $26… Johnson Controls had been bolstered by $299 million dropped at its doorstep by the administration of President Barack Obama.
“The man worked every angle to parlay fear of global-warming catastrophes into a humdinger of a personal fortune. And he didn’t achieve his new status in the free market. The federal government helped out with major, major bucks.
“Their real agenda is clear: “The only solution to climate change is a global energy-management network. We (the Globalist leaders) are in the best position to manage such a system. We will allocate mandated energy-use levels throughout the world, region by region, nation by nation, and eventually, citizen by citizen.””
