At UN ‘Climate’ Summit, Pelosi and Democrats Ignore Reality
by Alex Newman
During a congressional trip to the United Nations 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) on “climate change,” Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.; shown) ignored reality and claimed the United States was still committed to the “climate” fight and the UN “Paris Agreement.” “We came here to say we’re still in,” Pelosi said at the UN summit in Madrid. However, in the real world, President Donald Trump, who ridiculed the man-made warming alarmism as a “hoax” to benefit Communist China, is still the president. And under his administration, the U.S. government is still in the process of leaving the controversial and illegitimate UN deal.
Beyond ignoring the fact that a skeptic of the hypothesis is still sitting in the White House, Pelosi also misled UN COP 25 attendees about Congress, too. “Our delegation is here to send a message that Congress’s commitment to take action on the climate crisis is iron-clad,” Pelosi claimed. In reality, just a tiny handful of fringe Republicans — dubbed Republicans in Name Only by political analysts — publicly support “action” on “climate.” In fact, it was major news a few weeks ago when one freshman Republican senator joined with a Democrat to create a “Climate Solutions Caucus.” Despite the effort to mislead the world, though, delegates at the UN summit are well aware of the lack of American support.
During a 30-minute press conference in Madrid, Democrats chose not to focus on Trump or the fact that Americans elected a president who boldly rejected and ridiculed the hypothesis underpinning their agenda. Instead, the coalition of radical U.S. lawmakers spent much of their time emphasizing the fact that some of America’s most leftist city and state governments were handicapping their own economies and raising the cost of living for the people they represent under the guise of fighting “climate change.” Overall, they sounded detached from reality, observers said. At the end of the press conference, some of the Democrats even shouted: “We’re still in!”
Critics ridiculed the House Speaker and her fellow Democrats in the delegation for sounding so out of touch with the real world. “Pelosi and the rest need a lesson in the U.S. Constitution and how foreign policy is lawfully made in this country,” said Craig Rucker, president of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a free-market environmentalist group. After that, the CFACT chief volunteered to teach the Democrats a basic civics lesson.
Rucker, a staple at UN gatherings, also highlighted the fact that the ongoing UN summit was literally being run by actual socialists — socialists busy promoting global socialism under the guise of saving the environment. Among the socialists bigwigs called out was UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, a Socialist Party member who led the Marxist-oriented Socialist International before becoming UN boss.
