MIT climate scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen on believing the UN pacts can save the planet: 'These efforts are returning us to the Middle Ages when people liked to do symbolic gestures to persuade God to look at us more mercifully. It is an irrational issue, except from the viewpoint of the people who make profit out of it.'
Trump on Ivanka's climate views: [Princeton U. Pysicist Dr. Bill [Happer] was mentioning that he was discussing this issue with Trump and Trump was saying: 'You must understand that my daughter is young and doesn't understand the issue yet. Who knows how these things will evolve...'
'Since 1988, the latter has been tens of billions of dollars, an amount so large that the climate science has basically been unable to absorb it so far. The field is relatively small and the tens of billions are going almost exclusively to support a pre-determined paradigm.'
'When this whole construct collapses sometime in the future and the fight against global warming will be moved to the dumping ground of history, people will marvel at a remarkable story showing how it was possible to make the whole of mankind hysterical without any proper arguments. And how vulnerable science may become when it is exposed to such hysteria.'
'But when you continuously increase the research funds, and on top of that, you develop the research on the impacts of the so-called climate change, you may study e.g. cockroaches and still be incorporated to the industry of climatology once you publish studies about the cockroaches' prospects in the globally warming world. If 90% of the research funding for the climate were slashed, the discipline would actually benefit.'
Watch: Climate Depot's Marc Morano on Al Jazeera TV on Trump UN Paris Pact - Broadcast June 1, 2017
Morano on TV: "This is not even a an environmental lobby anymore. This is religious conviction. Trump waded into a religious war by going after climate pact. The UN chief has actually said global warming is my religion. and Hollywood celebrities have alluded to that, actor Harrison Ford has said he found in nature a replacement for God. Trump is actually standing up and willing to taking on the religion of climate change. Again, no modern leader other than former Czech President Vaclav Klaus has shown this kind of strength."
Al Jazeera anchor: "Is Trump isolating himself? He seems to be the only man standing. Nobody seems to agree with him."
Morano: "He's a leader! When Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980, he was called the reckless cowboy and many were worried. This is what leadership looks like, you buck even your allies and do what's right not only for your country but for the planet. The planet does not need nonsense about a UN climate treaty somehow saving us and now we are all doomed because we did not adhere to it. That is belief in superstition. European leaders will ultimately respect Trump more for taking a strong stand and defying all of their lobbying. This is America reborn. Trump is showing unbelievable courage."
Morano: 'This is very close to a religious issue. This is a theological issue. People take climate change that seriously.' 'We are proud of a president who is staring at the UN and saying we don't want to give up our sovereignty so that UN bureaucrats can redistribute our wealth and do nothing for the climate. This is a great day for science.'
Morano: 'The UN has admitted they will redistribute wealth by climate policy. This is all politics, it is not about saving the planet and Trump is calling them on it.'We been called a rogue nation along with Syria and Nicaragua. The U.S was founded as a rogue nation. Trump is showing true leadership. Standing up to the world and say we are not buying belief in superstition that a UN agreement that even if you believe in UN assumptions would have no measurable impact on temps in 100 years or has anything to do with saving the planet or climate. Donald Trump should win a medal of scientific courage and political courage for pulling out of this.'
Trump's "arrival at the Vatican will be via what’s in effect a side-entrance to the Holy See, Porta del Perugino, a consequence of the pope’s request the faithful not be disturbed in St. Peter's Square on the eve of Ascension Day."
