Trump Must Pull the US Out of the Whole UN Climate Change Fiasco

Since at least 1995 the United Nations has used climate change as a vehicle to attempt to increase its power over the world’s sovereign nations. In that year, they began to hold massive annual conferences focused on stopping the ‘planet’s temperature’ from rising. The fact that such a temperature was merely a statistical computation that had little or no significance in the real world made no difference – ‘we must stop global warming’ became the clarion call of the yearly Conferences of the Parties (COP) to 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) treaty.
The 1995 Berlin COP was the first and so was designated COP1. COP3 was held in Kyoto where the Kyoto Protocol was created. And so it continued year after year until COP21 met in Paris in 2015 when the Paris Agreement was adopted. Last December COP25 was held in the beautiful city of Madrid and, this November, COP26 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland. As described by independent analyst Dr. David Wojick here, the Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL) is planning a major debate on climate change to coincide with the Glasgow UN event. We look forward to it.
The UN assumed from the start that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels was increasing the so-called greenhouse effect so much that this would warm the Earth to dangerous levels.

When the data showed that the Earth was no longer warming, they simply changed the topic from global warming to climate change, allowing them to attribute any natural variation in climate – warming, cooling, drought, floods, whatever they wanted – to man’s influence.

The UN then passed non-binding agreements for each nation to reduce their CO2 emissions. Taking a page out of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, they referred to the gas as ‘carbon,’ at times even ‘carbon pollution,’ to increase the intended fear. While this made sense as a propaganda tool, it made no sense scientifically. Carbon is soot and coal black which is real pollution while CO2 is an odorless, colorless gas, of course, that supports all life on our planet.
As the years went by, the UN ratcheted up the fear level to where we hear daily of the absurd “existential threat of climate change,” warning that if we do not eliminate the use of natural gas, coal and oil, life as we know it will end within a decade or two.
There is a huge impetus by most countries’ bureaucrats to continue holding these useless conferences. More than 190 nations send delegations which in total, wait for it, number more than 20,000 folks living in luxury hotels and dining at fine restaurants in attractive locations at tax-payer expense, ironically producing vast amounts of CO2 in the process. Holding the meetings by teleconference would eliminate most these emissions, of course, but who would not enjoy a two-week paid vacation at in exotic locals such as Marrakech, Morocco (COP7), Bali, Indonesia (COP13) or Cancun, Mexico (COP16). COP24, held in Katowice, Poland, got a lot of attention as it is the coal production center for Poland which depends on coal for both energy and jobs. Here were tens of thousands of foreigners calling for the end of this important resource for Poland.
COP21 in Paris is the most famous as it was here that President Obama pledged to give $3 Billion of US taxpayer money to the $100 billion Green Climate Fund (GCF). The GCF is a nest egg from the developed nations coffers to the less developed nations who claim that the ‘carbon’ emitted by the wealthy nations was blowing over them, deserving recompense. Obama immediately proceeded to write a check for the first $500 million of it, followed by another $500 million shortly before he left office. In 2017 President Trump announced the intention for the US to leave the Paris Agreement after the required waiting period was over, which occurred in 2019. Given a one-year’s notice for withdrawal, the US will be out of the treaty on November 4, 2020, the day after the US presidential election.
The Paris conference itself admitted that the reduction in ‘carbon’ (carbon dioxide) emissions called for would not have significant impact on altering the ‘planet’s temperature’ but felt that eliminating the use of fossil fuels was warranted anyway. They certainly got support from all candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination at their February 18 debate in Las Vegas. They all supported the end of fossil fuels and the reinstating of the US into the Paris Agreement.
Every year the leaders of the COP meetings have called all nations to make mandatory “carbon pricing” high enough to make fossil fuels artificially too expensive so as to promote wind and solar power despite their huge costs and unreliability. A backlash began around the world after COP24. Riots in France after President Macron installed a tax on ‘carbon emissions’ forced him to backed down.
In Germany, electrical cost overruns from their solar panels and wind turbines are threatening to drive long-time chancellor Angela Merkel out of office. The memory of $4.00 gasoline will surely stop any US President from recommending a heavy tax on our major fuel source.

Twenty-five years of COP events have indeed been, to quote Shakespeare, “sound and fury signifying nothing.”

Sadly, there is no reason to believe these bureaucrats will ever want to give up their luxury vacations at our expense. President Trump was right to get us out of the Paris Agreement. In his second term, he needs to dump the whole UNFCCC process entirely.
Note: the authors wish to thank Jim Hollingsworth whose outstanding book Climate Change: A Convenient Truth dedicates a chapter to the COP meetings which inspired this article. We highly recommend Dr. Hollingsworth’s book for insight on every facet of the climate change delusion.

Get ready for “Dave James” to quickly show up and attempt to debunk our piece. Here is some interesting background on him (if indeed, he is really one person):
Russell Cook posted:
“But in just the last year, the comment count from “Dave James” more than doubled, to an average approaching 6 comments per day, EVERY day.”
So, one naturally wonders: is there a single person named “Dave James” who must be spending most of his life posting comments to oppose me (as many of his comments show considerable research), or is there a team of researchers and posters who post under the name “Dave James?”
Some other info Mr. Cook supplied:
“The guy is insulted when I call him a comment stalker, but he routinely returns within hours and proves he is one. Write another of your articles at practically any online outlet anywhere around the world, and he predictably shows up to offer his strange guilt-by-association narratives about you within hours of the article’s publication. ”
Mr. Cook continues in another post:
“rummage through the collection of articles here at AmericaOutLoud authored by “Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris” and count up the number of times when “Dave James” has NOT come in to criticize Lehr & Harris. Like I said in my comment 3 days back, “Dave James” is an online comment stalker, with no life other than that activity. Click on his Disqus comment account link that he provided in his Jan 22 comment and take the time to go back through his four year commenting history, and it becomes abundantly obvious who he stalks. Find his Facebook account with the url string “/profile.php?id=100009262716514” after the main url address which has the 3 penguins avatar illustration, and you’ll see ol’ Dave uses FB entirely for the purpose of commenting at Harris’ articles where a Facebook login is required to enable commenting. At least Harris has Facebook Friends to correspond with. I have plenty myself, just added a new one who’s a prominent staffer at a research center. How many FB Friends does “Dave James” have? Zip. Zero. Nada. But his account sure does prove my point about him.”
It is hard to argue with Mr. Cook’s points and so I simply conclude by posting the following:
This Disqus profile – https://disqus.com/by/disqus_JzQ88MTX2I/following/ – shows that since March 31, 2016, Mr. James has made 4,495 comments. Here is a sample of some of his many, many posts apparently trying to discredit my writings in online article comment sections: https://www.google.ca/search?site=&source=hp&q=%22Tom+Harris%22+%22Dave+James%22&gws_rd=cr&ei=nyGDWefuDavcjwSb-oK4DA . I already explained to Mr. James that many of his points are either wrong or misleading . I will not waste any more time explaining this to him, unless other people bring up the same or similar questions.

Tom Harris and Dr. Jay Lehr asserts referring to the carbon in carbon dioxide as “‘carbon,’ at times even ‘carbon pollution’” in a plot by the United Nations that takes “…a page out of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.” Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris offer nothing to support for their political conspiracy theory.
Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr write, “UN ratcheted up the fear level to where we hear daily of the absurd “existential threat of climate change,” warning that if we do not eliminate the use of natural gas, coal and oil, life as we know it will end within a decade or two.” Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris provides does not even provide the name of the supposed UN official they claim to be quoting. Unsupported assertions are less than convincing.
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris often promote the Heartland Institute’s anti-United Nations political message which is unsurprising since both Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr are Heartland associates. (Source “In Trump’s Second Term – Get America out of the United Nations Entirely!”
By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, jan 15, 2020, America Out Loud)
Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr have an agenda but it is not science. For example: Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris claim that GOP leaders should decide their position on climate change based on “political strategy” rather than scientific evidence.
They castigated Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Trump appointee Neil Chatterjee, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for accepting the scientific evidence of human-caused climate change. Dr. Lehr & Mr. Harris asserts these Republicans are “…abandoning their base and supporting the climate scare is terrible political strategy for Republicans…” (Source “Conservatives Must Stand Up to Climate Change Bullying” by Tom Harris and Dr. Jay Lehr, May 9, 2019, PJ Media)

Tom Harris attempts to rebut my posts before I write one. Mr. Harris doesn’t see the fallacy in asserting my “points are either wrong or misleading” before I have written them. Mr. Harris fallacious posts discredit his writings far more than my comments.
Tom Harris’ repetition of Russel Cook’s petty personal attacks says nothing about me but reflects badly on both Mr. Cook and Mr. Harris. It shows Mr. Harris’ poor judgement and his lack of originality.
Russell Cook is a blogger and a fellow Heartland associate of Mr. Harris. (Source archived bio of Russell Cook on the Heartland website) One of Mr. Cook’s roles is “get in and fight back” in comment sections with people who take issue with false and misleading op-eds by Heartland associates. (Source “Exploratory Journeys with Tom Harris” Episode – 17, Nov 27, 2019: Tom interviews Russell Cook)
Mr. Harris gets his personal attack wrong. Mr. Harris attributes comments that he wrote to Russell Cook. Mr. Tom Harris wrote, “So, one naturally wonders: is there a single person named “Dave James” who must be spending most of his life posting comments to oppose me (as many of his comments show considerable research), or is there a team of researchers and posters who post under the name “Dave James?” Curious to hear what people think.” (Source Comments Section of “Getting Ahead of Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary” By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, Jan 21, 2020 America Out Loud)
Mr. Harris encourage others to speculate if I am more than one person not Mr. Cook.

While it involves a bit of an internet page surfing / reading chore, if objective people skim through the comment sections of the Tom Harris or Harris / Lehr articles here at America Out Loud, a clear pattern emerges for the comment stalker activities of “Dave James” and his efforts to smear the credibility of Harris / Lehr, and the pattern continues years back into the past when folks look into the “Dave James” Disqus comment system account that Tom linked to in his comment here. I’ve jousted with “Dave James” within several of the comment sections at this site, and I leave it to others to objectively determine whether he or I have made sound assertions against each other. However, a new thing popped up in the comment section following the Harris / Lehr Feb 4th article, “Q: Why don’t we hear more about the Sun and its impact on Climate Change?”. A commenter with the user name “BlueStar” appeared there, and in short order, began displaying the same sort of writing style that “Dave James” has, including inexplicable typos which are otherwise out-of-character for supposedly well-educated writers. The sizable problem appeared at the end of my long joust with “BlueStar”, in the way “Dave James” chimed in with his February 23, 2020 at 4:50pm comment featuring a paragraph lifted nearly identically straight out the February 20, 2020 at 5:02pm by “BlueStar” …. and the balance of the “Dave James” comment looked as though he was replying AS “BlueStar,” asking for an answer to a question only “BlueStar” was asking. My speculation is that both comment accounts are one-and-the-same person, and it was an unforced error on “Dave James” to use his account to reply to me when he meant to reply as the “BlueStar” persona.
I’m not asking the America Out Loud people to release non-public comment account information on these two, but I do suggest they look into this matter. If it turns out both accounts are from the same person, I’d think that is reason enough to ban both from future commenting here, or within whatever comment system America Out Loud subscribes to. Myself, I welcome free speech even from harsh critics with differing views, but under genuinely honest circumstances. When a person feels compelled to stalk online authors and bombard them with essentially character assassination efforts, and do so while going to the extra effort of posing as another person, that crosses the line into being worthy of banning.

No, I just get sick of people who regularly spew out logical fallacies and project and call it “critical comments”. Which is what you do. As for calling a troll a troll; that isn’t name calling.

My name is Dave James. Mr. Tom Harris’ speculation that I am more than one person because my “comments show considerable research” is a canard.
In rational debate, the accuracy of a post is not determined by the profession of the author but by the strength of the author’s arguments. My posts are sound because I provide documentation to support my assertions. Instead of disputing my posts, Rich Kozlovich attempts to imply I need to state my profession in order to show I have the authority to criticize Dr. Jay Lehr’s and Mr. Harris’ opinion piece. Unlike Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr, I don’t make appeals to authority.
Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr recently wrote that Dr. Lehr has studied climate change for over 40 years. “For people who have studied climate change for over 40 years, like the senior author of this article, Dr. Jay Lehr…” (Source “Q: Why don’t we hear more about the Sun and its impact on Climate Change?” By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, Feb 4, 2020) However, according to Dr. Lehr’s bio he has never studied climate change. Dr. Lehr’s doctorate is in ground water hydrology. (Source Jay Lehr bio Heartland Institute website)
On the positive side Rich Kozlovich has dropped his name-calling.

@Rich Kozlovich: Notice how “Dave James” sidestepped your question about his profession, but Wow! You’ve made more headway with this stalker in one comment thread than I’ve made over the last two or so years in sections elsewhere. The reason I’ve asked the guy about his name is, for starters, it never occurred to me that anybody would take up either the hobby or profession of plastering internet comment sections with boilerplate screeds. When Tom Harris first mentioned he had comment section stalkers at his online articles, I looked into one of them and spotted a pattern of a repeated sentence. When I put key words of it into a Google search, it turns out the commenter was using the same phrase over and over in multiple comment sections for months on end. A while after that search exercise, when I saw “Dave James” repeat a particular set of words on more than one diatribe against Harris, I plopped his word set into a Google search, and found the complete paragraph elsewhere literally verbatim ……… under a distinctly different user name. And this doesn’t involve that days-ago “BlueStar” situation I noted in my February 26, 2020 at 3:16pm comment here (notice how he never addressed that in this comment section, but instead borrows “BlueStar”‘s ludicrous accusation about Dr Lehr lying about his “studies”). So now that situation apparently indicates one of two things: either “Dave James” is a plagiarist, or else his name really is Dave James and he has posted under a different user name. The question now is obviously a yes or no one on whether he ever posted comments against Tom Harris under a different user name; and if yes, what specifically were the other user names and why did he feel compelled to use an alternate name or names.
Myself, by way of contrast, I used the pseudonym of “Roald A.” – inside joke about Roald Amundsen – when I first started placing comments online because I thought people could trace specifically where commenters live via real names connected to IP addresses. I figured it was a security measure not to use my real first & last name. Not so long after, I found out that kind of tracing is impossible, so I started using my actual name ever since. A simple act of full disclosure, some might say. There was never any intent to deceive a reading audience with my pseudonym. Another commenter told me about feeling self-obligated to switch from a real name to a generic one after far-left zealots went out of their way to threaten him, his family and/or his job status. If I was him, I’d find better ways to protect myself while still using my real name, but that’s the disagreement I have with him on names. Tom Harris risks far more than I do, and I have screencaptures of gutless anonymous commenters making threats against Harris and his ICSC group.

Russell Cook asserts I side-stepped Rich Kozlovich’s question about my profession. Mr. Cook is mistaken. Because Mr. Cook does not like my answer, does not mean I did not answer. In rational debate, the accuracy and soundness of a post is not determined by the profession of the author but by the strength of the author’s arguments.
Mr. Cook’s posts don’t address Dr. Lehr’s and Mr. Harris’ opinion piece or my criticisms of it. His post are a mixture of personal attacks, speculation, and personal anecdotes including a Tom Harris Harris and his ICSC group feeling threatened by commentators.
I don’t find threats and insults convincing so I don’t use them. Polite, direct and well-supported posts are far more convincing than name-calling and threats. For example: Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris are members of “a non-partisan group of independent scientists, economists and energy and policy experts who are working to promote better understanding of climate science and policy worldwide.” (Source International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC) website)
However, Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris asserts TV news is a plot by the Democrats and left-wing groups. They write, “Clearly, they (TV News) are all working from talking points distributed by the Democratic Party and its hundreds of left-wing groups including the media, of course.” (Source “It’s Time the RIGHT Got Its Act Together” By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, Feb 18, 2020, America Out Loud)
Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr go on to assert those on the left who do not share their political beliefs are “anti-capitalist/socialist” and “a cult religion.” Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr offer no evidence to support their political and religious conspiracy theories.
Dr. Lehr’s and Mr. Harris’ partisan arguments conflict with their claim to be non-partisan.

Now, THAT’s an entertaining development right there. How many times have you used variants of the come-back line “I don’t find insults convincing”over the last several years in your commenting career elsewhere, only to suddenly perceive it to be a typo in your February 28, 2020 comment here last night? Meanwhile, missed that “His post are a mixture” typo in that same comment against me, didn’t you? One of the other noticeable changes in your commenting style over the last year is how the comments contain increasingly polished wording indicative of a person with a high level of education ….. while also occasionally containing grade-school level grammar mistakes that make it look like the writer is in dire need of remedial English education. The above plural error is not an isolated incident, your comments at several of the Harris / Lehr America Out Loud articles are peppered with these mistakes, as are your comments in the Disqus system at other online article comment sections. Well-educated people with English as a second language make those kinds of grammar mistakes, but the other plausible answer here is that more than one person accesses your comment account, where the person’s job is to create replies via lame ‘copy & paste’ of pre-written statements, but is not particularly adept at using the proper grammar to stitch the sentences together.

@”Dave James”: I wouldn’t describe it as ‘being proud of my ability,’ exactly, but there is some degree of satisfaction from demonstrating how commenters such as yourself feel compelled to sidestep direct challenges – precisely what you did with your above comment in response to my Feb 28/29 ones here. Funny how you took exception to Tom’s initial preemptive strike Feb 26 comment with a sidestep about “Mr. Harris doesn’t see the fallacy in asserting my ‘points are either wrong or misleading’ before I have written them.” …… and then you turn around and appear right on cue as a comment section stalker of Harris and Lehr at their newest AmericaOutLoud “Real Environmentalists Should Support Trump” piece today, March 3, with a comment that I could have written for you, given your predictable pattern of re-using paragraphs from your assortment of previous comments elsewhere.
And how many times in comment sections elsewhere have I grilled you on what the meaning of “fellow Heartland associate” means, where you’ve continually sidestepped what your implied meaning is? Luv it (that’s a deliberate misspelling, if you haven’t caught it yet) of how you said at one other AmericaOutLoud comment section that you’ve “never written the Heartland Institute think-tank was ‘vile’ or a ‘corrupt shill of industry interests.'” Correct. But how many of your stalker associates will stand with you to say Heartland isn’t vile or corrupted by industry money? You and others have steered comment section readers into a worthless Desmogblog profile of me because “Heartland Institute” is a dogwhistle name meant to evoke an exact response from every enviro-activist who’s ever heard of it, and you constantly sidestep how the profile contains exactly zero evidence to support the dogwhistle knee-jerk idea that I’m on the payroll of Heartland in order to spread lies and disinformation.
Not complaining about your inconsistent writing style and appearance of using more than one comment account in the least, friend. Just pointing to a problem that undermines your entire existence as a ‘sincere lone commenter offering free speech criticisms.’ Meanwhile, by utterly failing to directly address the question about whether you’ve used more than one commenter account to criticize Tom Harris, is this tantamount to an indirect affirmation that you have done so? The original question could be answered with an outright yes or no response.

Try asking him if his real first & last name really is “Dave James.” I’ve tried that on several occasions over in the Disqus comment system, he gets really defensively sidestepping about it. Truth is, I occasionally wonder if the material under his user name isn’t actually generated from some kind of particularly clever comment bot-program, under partial guidance from an operator. It takes on that look more often than not, judging from the rather consistent initial boilerplate comment stalking appearances and subsequent canned-like responses that become repetitive from one comment section to the next. It is plausible — several years back it had to be told to me that I was jousting with a Twitter-bot program which turned out to be climatologist Dr Kerry Emanuel’s brother Barton “Woody” Emanuel.

Russell Cook disputes nothing I have written. Instead Mr. Cook and Tom Harris attempts to distract from my criticisms of Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris by speculate on my full name or whether I am more than one person. At least he has dropped his petty insults.
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris assert concentration of CO₂ in the atmosphere is far too tiny to have a major impact. “The coming disaster is supposedly being caused by our use of fossil fuels which have resulted in a carbon dioxide increase that is one ten thousandths of one percent of the air (yes, you read that right).” (Source “Getting Ahead of Earth Day’s 50th Anniversary” By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, Jan 21, 2020, America Out Load) but Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr both accept the scientific evidence that shows the same tiny amount of atmospheric CO₂ is key to all life on Earth. “…CO2 is an odorless, colorless gas, of course, that supports all life on our planet.”
Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris assert that the impact of global warming is an “environmental myth.” (Source “We Must Loudly Contest Environmental Myths” By Dr. Jay Lehr & Tom Harris, Jan 7, 2020, America Out Loud) However, their assertion is not supported by the science. The scientific evidence of human-caused climate change is both robust and compelling.

Tom Harris has a long history of calling for America to withdraw from the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) treaty. In May 15, 2017, Mr. Harris asserted the President Trump should withdraw from the 1992 UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) because:
1) “Actions that significantly reduce CO2 emissions would usually entail dramatically cutting back on the use of coal.”
2)”Trump needs to ‘Democrat-proof’ his agenda…”

All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

This Week In COVID: Hospitals, Please Stop Killing Our Loved Ones!

Patients never have the same doctor or nurse 2 days in a row. Family advocates STILL aren’t allowed to be bedside. The ‘Science’ isn’t being followed, but the ‘Money’ is being chased after. Doctors aren’t THINKING, they are OBEYING. One-size-fits-all does NOT work for high-risk patients or any patients. If you agree this is wrong, help us fight for what’s right…

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The Questionable Merger of a Global Reverse Biotechnology Corporation

The former corporation of Senomyx, once headquartered out of La Jolla, California, allegedly used aborted Fetal cells in its food and beverage products while in collaboration with some of the world’s largest leading food and beverage corporations.

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Why Ukraine Matters to America

Putin was severely stung by the collapse of the Soviet Union and what he perceived as gloating on the part of American politicians and others in the West. Putin set it as his primary goal to get payback for what he viewed as the insults that were levied against Mother Russia. I recall at the time commenting that we needed to tone it down…

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

England’s COVID Liberation: Real or Ruse?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s sudden change of direction leaves one to wonder if he is genuine in his thoughts and motives. Has he finally figured out that masking, isolation, jabs, and distancing never availed us any good? Probably not. Johnson has endured increasing pressure to resign due to his cultic mandates. Being freed from vaccine passports, mask mandates, classroom restrictions, isolation…

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

Anthony Fauci’s Rules: The Rule of Two

We are not in a pandemic anymore, but Fauci told us just the other day – and repeated the following day – that though Omicron may be mild, that does NOT mean we can relax restrictions, so like the Little Engine that Could (Not), we just keep chugging up the mountain, knowing we will never reach the top. The Biden Administration, in the meantime, tells us to grow up and manage our expectations…

Flip-flop Joe Must Stay the Course on Off-shore Drilling

Flip-flop Joe Must Stay the Course on Off-shore Drilling

Just before holding the lease auction, the Biden administration said the lawsuit did force them to make the oil leases in the Gulf. Now, flip-flop Joe’s administration says they did not have to go ahead with the lease auctions. In response, the environmental group Earthjustice launched a lawsuit on December 3rd to halt the leases before they come into effect in…
