Lomborg: "The Paris agreement, by its own organizers, the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) -- the guys that did the Paris agreement -- they estimate that the total impact, if everybody does what they promise to 2030 -- will cut 1% of what it will take us to get to 2 degrees C (temperature goal). So fundamentally, it will leave 99% of the problem still there. And the cost will be in the order of 1 to 2 trillion dollars a year. So it is a very costly treaty to do very little..."
Darwall, author of the book “Green Tyranny: Exposing the Totalitarian Roots of the Climate Industrial Complex,” recently sat down with The Daily Caller News Foundation to discuss his book, the Trump administration, and climate change. “Donald Trump has fundamentally changed the whole politics of climate and energy because of pulling out of the Paris agreement, but most of all talking about American energy dominance,” Darwall told TheDCNF.
“There is no country in the world which has more to lose from decarbonization,” Darwall said. “The United States is the hydrocarbon superpower.” “It’s got 500 years of reserves of coal, fracking has turned it into the world’s leading supplier of oil and gas, and that fundamental change means the U.S. can go on a different path and take some of the rest of the world with it, one hopes,” Darwall told TheDCNF.
