French President Gives Trump ‘Your Mother Was a Hamster’ Treatment at Paris Eco-Summit

Donald Trump was the lucky winner of a global elite gathering held in Paris today to mark the second anniversary of the useless, pointless and very expensive COP21 U.N. climate summit: he didn’t get an invitation.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was invited – and accepted. (And tweeted this extremely embarrassing thing to remind the world yet again why so many Conservatives expect her government to be overthrown by a bunch of revolutionary socialists at the next election, because hey what difference would it make?)

So too – allegedly – were 50 other “global leaders”, including Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

But there was no official delegation from the U.S. because that was the real point of the event: so that French President Emmanuel Macron and the rest of the Davos elite could be seen publicly to be punishing President Trump by conspicuously not inviting him.

Instead, the U.S. was represented by the Three Stooges of Eco Loon Bloviation: California Gov. Jerry Brown; former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg; and the almost inevitable Arnold Schwarzenegger, who made a fool of himself by mincing around on a silly green bicycle.

James Cameron: Trump ‘Psychotic, Delusional’ for Pulling Out of Paris Climate Accord

Director James Cameron has described Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord as “insanity,” in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“It’s absurd for us to withdraw from Paris. It’s insanity,” the Avatar director said of Trump. “I think it’s actually psychotic to be doing that, or it’s delusional. Possibly both.”

Cameron himself, of course, is famously not psychotic or delusional. As he demonstrates elsewhere in the interview he is a calm, well-balanced guy who is never now tempted to murder his film crews or take drugs to enhance his creativity:

I don’t need to be stoned to be creative, and I don’t need to be mean to get the vision on film.

We just had a wonderful morning where I brought in Wade Davis who is one of the world’s top anthropologist ethnobotanist guys. He’s a fellow explorer at National Geographic [Cameron has made a record-breaking deep sea dive] and we spent the first four hours sitting on the floor in a big circle with the entire [Avatar] cast and most of the creative crew and the designers and so on talking about the importance of the ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures and cultural relativism and all that sort of thing. The cast was utterly inspired by the whole thing.

Presumably, they had to be — to avoid having their intestines dragged out through their mouths by any of the notoriously calm, tolerant and not at all difficult action movie directors involved in the project, then fired, then ground down to make organic fertilizer to be donated to some remote Amazonian rainforest collective of indigenous peoples.

Revealed – The Real Reason Trump Pulled Out Of Paris…

…Is because he has a very powerful bullshit detector. We know this thanks to a fascinating and unwittingly revelatory article in the German newspaper Der Spiegel.

The paper reveals how, in the days running up to President Trump’s decision to quit the UN Paris accord, he received a series of deputations from EU leaders urging him to change his mind.

“For me it’s easier to stay in than step out,” Trump told them.

This is perfectly true. Since his momentous Rose Garden speech announcing his plans to pull out of Paris, Trump has taken more flak than a thousand-bomber raid over Berlin in ’44.

He has upset his daughter Ivanka, his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, his financial advisor Gary Cohn. On top of that, he has given the entire liberal half of the planet, plus sundry conservative squishes, the perfect excuse they needed to dismiss him as a science-denying loon in thrall to Big Oil, Big Coal, Big Evil, etc…

Trump Pulls out of Paris; Internet Shrieks that End Is Nigh

Let’s not get too excited just yet about reports that President Trump has made up his mind to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement. We don’t know the terms and conditions. It is entirely possible that what we end up with is a fudge, designed to appease both warring factions in the administration but actually resulting in a muddled cop out which pleases no one.

Still, let’s look at the upside. The greenies are going postal:

Climate Mob Threatens Trump – ‘Quit Paris and You’re Toast!’

The international climate mob have made President Trump an offer he can’t refuse: “Stay in Paris – or the U.S. gets it!”

Among the threats made so far, should the president honor his election trail promise to quit the UN Paris climate agreement.

The U.S. will lose $6 trillion worth of jobs in “clean” energy.

The U.S. will become a “rogue country”.

The U.S. will be removed from Angela Merkel’s Weihnachtskarte list.

The U.S. may become the victim of further weaponized handshakes and other typically Gallic “your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries” insults from prepubescent Mummy’s little tough boy President Macron of France.

The U.S. presidential administration may become subject to further awkward rifts between those who want a “seat at the table” in Paris – Tillerson; Jared Kushner; Ivanka; Gary Cohn; Rick Perry – and those who want out.

The U.S. may add to “global warming” by 0.3 degrees C,  causing the world to boil and melt or, if not that, then at least provoking much bitterness and resentment among all the countries that haven’t yet quit Paris even though they’d all secretly like to.

Quite how Trump will respond to these threats is still anyone’s guess. On the one hand, he has reportedly told various allies that he intends to pull out. On the other, he is known for changing his mind at the last minute.

What we do know is that the climate gravy train is trundling on regardless. And that as far as the U.S. climate negotiators are concerned, the current president might still just as well be Barack Obama.

Top Physicist and Leading Republicans Urge Trump to Quit Paris Climate Agreement

Should Donald Trump hamstring the U.S. economy, rip off the consumer, despoil the landscape, give succour to America’s enemies and promote junk science – all in order to keep a “seat at the table” with people who despise him and think he’s an idiot?

To some people – including several senior members of the Trump administration – the answer isn’t immediately obvious. Which is why this week both a leading U.S. scientist and a number of top Senate Republicans have had to urge the president to see sense and ignore the siren voices urging him to stay in the UN’s Paris climate agreement.

The 20 top Republicans, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., have signed a letter warning the president that remaining in Paris “would subject the United States to significant litigation risk that could up-end your administration’s ability to fulfill its goal of rescinding the Clean Power Plan.”

Meanwhile, the distinguished physicist Will Happer – long mooted as a possible Science Advisor in the Trump administration – has argued that staying in Paris will not only be pointless but will be a betrayal of Trump’s election promise to voters that he would pull out.

Climate policy, however, poses a grave threat. Yes, those who engineered the Paris Agreement will be upset if the United States withdraws. Withdrawal will also outrage the many who profit from climate alarmism. But remaining in the Paris Agreement will not sit well with many of those who voted for Mr. Trump in part because of his campaign promises to withdraw from the agreement. These voters rightly perceived that the agreement would benefit a privileged international elite, at the expense of the common people of the United States and of the rest of the world.

You might think that such interventions ought to be unnecessary. President Trump is, after all, an avowed climate skeptic who has already taken several important steps towards tackling the Green Blob, most recently by promising to eliminate “nearly $1.6 billion in international programs aimed at promoting green energy and fighting global warming.”

Among the targets on his hit list: the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund (GCF), which hands out money for programs to adapt or mitigate global warming; the Clean Technology Fund and the Strategic Climate Fund – saving $239 million; and the Global Climate Change Initiative, saving U.S. taxpayers $362 million.

But Trump is still wavering over the Paris climate agreement, which senior members of his administration, including Jared Kushner, daughter Ivanka, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are urging him not to quit.

Anyone puzzled by the fact that the former CEO of Exxon is supporting an agreement totally opposed to the company’s business model and shareholder interests really needs to read this eye-opening piece by Steve Milloy.
