So many things were wrong with this ridiculous, one-sided climate “deal” the last President stuck us with, and WITHOUT congressional approval at that. The problem is that oligarchs around the world see the United States as their ‘piggy bank’ and it’s about time we have a President that says, “No More!” As President Trump stated, ” … we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair.” That is the key word — ‘FAIR’. It will be difficult because the rest of the world sees ‘FAIR’ as meaning the USA ponies up for it. TO that we say, “Balderdash!”
” … business leaders like Elon Musk of Tesla, Jeffrey R. Immelt of General Electric and Lloyd C. Blankfein of Goldman Sachs said the decision would ultimately harm the economy by ceding the jobs of the future in clean energy and technology to overseas competitors.”
Not true. If ‘clean energy’ becomes financially doable, it will become popular and business people will bring it to market in an affordable fashion. Simply raising the price of energy to force this is the wrong way to start a new market. ‘Clean Energy’ (if there really is such a thing because today’s so-called ‘clean energy’ is not that clean — see batteries and their production) certainly is worth pursuing, but that needs to be pursued by entrepreneurs, not governments.
Europeans have already made the mistake of allowing their government to force it upon them — just look at the price of their energy.
Let’s NOT go the way of Europe . . .
