Paris Climate Craziness

Yesterday, President Donald Trump announced that he would be pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, much to the hysterical dismay of those whose religion is catastrophic anthropogenic  global warming climate change. Responses on Twitter took two disparate tracks: one was that the world would be ending shortly; and that the Paris agreement was really a modest agreement and little more than virtue-signalling to start with.

I've long been of the opinion that the doomsayers of the climate change cult are no different than the population bomb fearmongers of the 1960s and '70s. They're part of a quasi-religious mindset that believes that humans are bad for the planet and other living things—and they're always wrong.

Yes, climate changes. Yes, human activity probably has some influence on changing climate, though I am of the opinion that it is a relatively small percentage when compared to that big yellow ball in the sky.

Cost-benefit analysis

But even if you disagree with me and believe every word uttered by climate cult leaders like Michael Mann, their prescriptions for reducing carbon dioxide emissions and the costs associated with it are ludicrously expensive for the benefit received.

We would be far better off, and it would be far more effective, to spend the same amount of money building dikes, sea walls, or relocating people from low-lying coastal areas, than attempting to lower global temperatures through carbon dioxide reduction.

Economist Bjorn Lomborg made the case earlier this year in this PragerU video that is well worth your time.

Start acting like it's a crisis

Instapundit Glenn Reynolds has been saying for the better part of a decade that he'll start believing there's a climate crisis when people who are convinced there's a climate crisis start acting like it.

When Leonardo DiCaprio sells his yacht and stops flying around the world on his private plane, I might begin to take notice.

Paris Climate
Former Vice President Al Gore's mansion takes a lot of energy to heat during the winter and cool during the summer.

When Al Gore downsizes from his Nashville mansion (without those pesky solar panels) to a 1-bedroom efficiency apartment, I might begin to believe his doomsaying.

When the UN holds a climate conference exclusively via Skype rather than having government functionaries arriving at a tropical location in private planes from all over the world, I might begin to believe there really is a problem.

Until then, we're better off working to reduce poverty worldwide and enabling people to afford to adapt to climate change rather than empty virtue-signalling about lowering carbon dioxide levels.

The Paris Climate Accord isn't part of the solution, therefore it's part of the problem


Aside from the "rules are for the Little People" angle, stuff like this really drives home the point that masks are more like an armband on your face, signaling tribal loyalty.

If Breed was actually concerned about Covid, and actually believed masks worked, she wouldn't forget.

San Francisco Mayor @LondonBreed defends violating her indoor mask mandate while partying at a club:

“I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask."

Fauci should have stopped doing public interviews over a year ago. He's repeatedly done this thing where he pretends (incorrectly) that the science conclusively supports whatever policy position he is advocating for at the time and it leaves a lot of people doubting the science.

Updated Fauci flip flops:

— COVID being a big deal
— Social distancing
— Masks (flip-flop-flipped)
— Schools re-opening
— T-cell immunity
— Biden admin “starting from scratch” on vaccines
— His wearing a mask as “theater”
— Covid origins
— Covid booster shots
