As the Mayor of Pittsburgh, I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy & future.

Loyd Blankfein, Goldman Sachs CEO Chimed In

Today's decision is a setback for the environment and for the U.S.'s leadership position in the world. #ParisAgreement

Allegedly, that was the first ever Tweet by Blankfein.

US Rivals Fear Uneven Competitive Field

The Wall Street Journal reports With U.S. Firms Freed of Paris Accord, Rivals Fear Uneven Competitive Field.

Reverse Paranoia

The WSJ also states “Others say they see a risk that American firms may end up missing out on opportunities created by governments trying to get a handle on climate change.”

The Carbon Disclosure Project, a London research group that pushes for consistent emissions disclosure from companies, said that Mr. Trump’s decision opens the door for businesses and other world leaders “to act in order to protect their assets.”

The group warned that the U.S. may end up suffering competitively by pulling out, by leaving on the table billions of dollars in cost savings the group says is associated with climate-change reduction. Lance Pierce, president of the CDP in North America, said that 190 of the U.S.’s Fortune 500 companies have already saved $3.7 billion a year by focusing on climate-change-reduction measures like energy efficiency.

Unilever PLC Chief Executive Paul Polman, a longtime advocate of the commercial benefits of corporate sustainability efforts, said U.S. companies might miss out when it comes to new growth opportunities as governments accelerate their efforts to reduce emissions to meet the accord’s aspirations.

Tech Companies React

Supply Chain reports Technology Companies React to Trump’s Decision to Withdraw From Paris Climate Agreement.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai

Disappointed with today’s decision. Google will keep working hard for a cleaner, more prosperous future for all.

Apple CEO Tim Cook

Decision to withdraw from the #ParisAgreeement was wrong for our planet. Apple is committed to fight climate change and we will never waver.

— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) June 2, 2017

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg

“Withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement is bad for the environment, bad for the economy, and it puts our children’s future at risk. For our part, we’ve committed that every new data center we build will be powered by 100% renewable energy.
Stopping climate change is something we can only do as a global community, and we have to act together before it’s too late.”

Momentous Implications

The fearmongers at Climate Interactive on the U.S. Role in the Paris Agreement state the “implications of this decision will be momentous for the US and for the world.”

“The world would warm an additional 0.3°C (about one-half a degree Fahrenheit) by 2100,” according to the report.

Momentous Math

0.3°C over 82 years is .003658536 degrees a year. Donald Trump will likely be gone in 4 years, but let’s assume 8 years.

If Trump lasts 8 yrs, the temp will rise by .029°C. Mercy! Can the earth survive? Is mass hysteria ever right?

Can the earth take it?

This is all so stupid, it’s hard to know where to start, but here is my checklist.

  1. Models cannot possibly predict anything to this degree of accuracy.
  2. The shift to driverless vehicles alone will likely do far more for emission reductions than has been factored in.
  3. The earth has gone through major cooling and heating cycles over hundreds of millions of years.
  4. Attempts to predict the next 100 years are far beyond absurd.
  5. The global warming fearmongers have changed their models and doctored the data so many times, no one in their right mind should accept any of their predictions.

For the record, I am in favor of reduced pollutants, especially from coal, for health reasons, not global warming. The focus on CO2 is a joke.

In case you disagree, I leave you with one final question: When has such mass hysteria ever been right?
