In age of Trump, USA pulls back presence at UN climate summit

The American pavilion.

When President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the UN’s Paris Climate Accord, he also cut back on the American presence in the UN process. Sure, the official State Department representatives are here, but the sideshow is tellingly absent.

In past years the U.S. put on big displays where NASA trotted out its “hyperwall” which stacks nine computer monitors for multimedia presentations. CFACT’s friends may remember the time at COP 20 in Peru, where CFACT approached a group of Obama administration NASA representatives running the hyperwall. They were prepared to dismiss CFACT as “unscientific, flat earth deniers,” until they realized who had marched in at the head of our delegation. Colonel Walt Cunningham flew in space on the Apollo VII, the mission that kicked off America’s quest to land on the moon. Walt saw the curvature of the Earth first hand from the window of his command module. No flat-Earther he.

Walt has worked diligently to reform NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies which first James Hansen and now Gavin Schmidt made into a platform for presenting politicized views of climate science. A large number of astronauts and NASA veterans co-signed a letter basically demanding NASA knock off the propaganda.

At COP 23, at least, the propaganda spigot has been turned off.

Like last year’s COP 22 in Marrakesh, President Trump remains the talk of the conference. Campaigners worked for years to bring America and its wealth under the UN climate regime. They were shocked when only a year later America broke free. What does this mean for their dreams of redistribution and control? They don’t know and in the long term, neither do we.

President Obama made a huge mistake when he signed onto the Paris climate agreement and Trump did the right thing getting out. The UN climate elite are doing all they can to drag us back in. They’ve enlisted a group of American politicians led by California Governor Jerry Brown and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg who are on their way to Bonn to put on their own American climate show.

CFACT is your eyes and ears at the UN talks. We’ll be speaking up and fearlessly laying out the facts as well.

Getting out of Paris was right.

Let’s work together to ensure we stay out.
