Don’t Buy The UN’s Bull — The US Isn’t Killing Planet Earth

Stephen Moore, New York Post

The United Nations and nearly 100 climate scientists from across the globe have issued their latest environmental primal scream. Thanks to climate change, the planet is evidently on a path of “unprecedented environmental destruction” that will destroy life on earth as we know it.

Within a generation we’ll be overwhelmed by catastrophic wildfires, rising sea levels, floods, hurricanes, disease, food shortages and a mass die-off of coral reefs.”

There hasn’t been this much doom and gloom packed in a government report since Jimmy Carter was in the White House and issued the “Global 2000 Report” which predicted a coming Malthusian scarcity.

 

People can make up their own minds about the veracity of these latest predictions. But we already know that one conclusion of the UN report is dead wrong. This is the script that the United States, and particularly President Trump, is the environmental Darth Vader here.

The Los Angeles Times put it this way: “The report serves as a stark reminder of President Trump’s status as a global outlier in terms of climate change . . . Trump has rejected the 2015 Paris agreement signed by 195 nations to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, expressed skepticism about human-caused climate change and vowed to increase coal-burning.”

Wait a minute. In 2017, the country that reduced its greenhouse-gas emissions the most wasn’t Canada or Britain or Germany or Australia or France. It was the United States. That’s right — the one country that pulled out of the phony Paris Climate Accord reduced its carbon emissions by 0.5 percent, the most of all major countries.

The Fed vs. the Middle Class

With interest rates flattened [by the Federal Reserve], government zeroes out the future. Abandoned were 80 percent of private defined-benefit pension plans. Public plans faced a similar evisceration in the future. With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
