A brief observation on the Paris global warming scam ...

A few quick words on the Paris Climate Change Accord, if I may. This issue is so absurd, based as it is on pure fantasy that seeks to drain the taxpayers while increasing the size and scope of government and making the usual corporate players richer than they already are.
In announcing that the U.S. would pull out of the agreement, President Trump noted that "China would be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants ... India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020 ... Even Europe is allowed to continue construction of coal plants," but that the United States itself absolutely must not burn any coal or further provide the facilities with which to burn it.
We can call this thing an accord, an agreement or a deal, but it is actually a treaty, and it is required by the Constitution under Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 to be confirmed by the Senate. Instead, in typical fashion, Barack Obama, as Mr. Trump pointed out, went around the Senate and through his negotiations gave other countries considerable leeway which America, if it signed, would not have.

But all the big corporations are in favor of the agreement, the Left was quick to point out. Suddenly, liberals are so fond of big business. What happened to them being such nasty, monstrous polluters and cathedrals of greed, as the progressives have been alleging for decades? You can't blame a business, no matter how big, for wanting to pursue profits and stay ahead in the game, but they can pay their "fair share" in taxes, can't they? But it won't be Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook or Sundar Pichai, so I wonder who, aside from energy providers, the "millionaires and billionaires" are that Bernie Sanders and his rag-tag army of supporters want to punish? The New York Times-worshiping crowd wouldn't dream of making life tough for those super-rich, tax-avoiding fat (but hep) cats.
Maybe Jake Tapper, Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Megyn Kelly or Don Lemon can enlighten the American people as to why this is? You say a hundred-year-old light bulb shines brighter than the minds of any of these media "stars," dear reader? Gotcha.
Try convincing me that this agreement doesn't have George Soros's fingerprints all over it, as if B. Hussein Obama's smudges weren't enough to thoroughly contaminate it.
If the Paris Climate Change agreement is so wonderful, and their arguments in favor of the U.S. being a participatory member of the deal are so convincing, why didn't the progressives push for it to go through Congress? Why aren't liberals ever comfortable with We the People getting to scrutinize their agenda for ourselves? Instead, the pinkos would rather play the Blame Trump game when they imperiled this treaty by not pursuing the proper channels for its passage.
Demanding more money for NATO from Europe was just part one. Part two was telling these lazy ingrates, in addition to the rest of the world, that the U.S. taxpayer is no longer going to give them a blank check with which to "save the world". If it's that big an issue, put up yourselves—or shut up. Think locally, act locally, that's what the Trump revolution has in store for you.
