Skip to comments.EPA Scott Pruitt on Climate Change, Donald Trump Paris Accord Agreement
Posted on 06/05/2017 8:29:31 AM PDT by poconopundit
Wow, a star is born. Scott Pruitt came into Sean Spicer's press conference and executed a brilliant 10-minute sparring match with several Fake News reporters.
It would have been fun for Pruitt to have asked the reporters what they meant by Climate Change? Do you mean global warming? But I understand that was not his mission.
The media continues in their all-attack mode. So it was fun watching Pruitt rebuffing their coordinated attack in a very strong, articulate and polite manner.
Fake News repeaters.
There. Fixed it.
LOL. Good change, Eagle eye!
Its about time someone had President Trump’s back...
Now - if T Rex would recall that obamite appointee that is STILL the US Ambassador to London!!!!
I guess the Repeaters where disturbed because Pruitt never used the words that were already inserted in the stories planned to be written.
So the Repeaters had to go back and rewrite their stories. Great. Spoiling them again, and again, and again.
I watched that, I always watch the pressers, I was clapping and yelling...Pruitt was GREAT!!!
Those ‘unimportant’ idiots that think the world can’t revolve with out them are out dated, and way over their prime...should be put in the ‘land fill’ and plowed over and something covering so the smell doesn’t get out!!!
She knew there was supposed to be ten but she threw a fit and kicked and screamed and cried when she was only able to count to nine. But that didn't stop her from trying. She was bound and determined to count ten fingers.
That's the Fake News Repeaters. Scott Pruitt is the grandpa.
Great story... that one’s worth remembering.
Under the Paris Agreement, China could INCREASE its emissions by 3.4 billion tons between now and 2030... which is the exact amount that ALL of the EU emits today. The globe has to spend money and limit emissions, while China gets to promise to eventually peak and then stop (as if Chinese Communist promises on Social Issues are worth anything).
China is the problem, not the US. In 2015, the top emitters were: China at 10.4 billion tons, US 5.4, EU 3.5, India 2.5, and Russia 1.8. China is emitting more than US-EU-Russia COMBINED, and is allowed to add another EU... all while the rest pay and reduce... and all this multi-multi-trillion-dollar effort so that the planet MIGHT be 0.3 degrees cooler in the year 2100. No thanks.
Great intelligence, Teacher!
You gotta love all the green and yellow on the US map.
America will end up making money on environmental protection by selling its clean technology to the rest of the world. Win/Win.
It’s so weird how obsessed these people are with whether or not you “believe” that “climate change is real”. He said in clear terms that there Earth has warmed and humans have contributed to it, but apparently that’s not enough.
Talk about evangelists among the press. I thought they were supposed to be skeptical by nature as journalists?
Any difference between Wolf Blitzer and those North Korean TV new announcers is merely a matter of style. The propaganda doctrines are the same: the message delivery is altered to fit the different audiences.
Then again, maybe Hillary and Obama have the goods on all of them. Step out of line and you get popped in the middle of the night by robbers who strangely want neither your cash, jewelry, nor wallet.
The guy I would not want to be right now is Comey. He's a marked man -- he knows way too much: like Vince Foster, Ron Brown, and Chris Stevens before him.
The 500 most polluted cities on earth:
187 of the Top 500 are in China (as well as 100 of the Top 222).
98 are in India.
The EU has 36 of the top 500, and they are all in Poland, Czech, Bosnia, and Macedonia.
Not one is in the US. NONE.
87% the rest are in the rest of Asia. (Iran and Saudi Arabia have 3 in the Top 5).
And now look at this:
2015 carbon dioxide emissions by country:
1. China 10.6 billion tons
2. USA 5.2
3. EU (all) 3.5
4. India 2.5
5. Russia 1.8
(Note: 10.6 > 5.2+3.5+1.8... yes, you read that right... China already spews more than US-EU-Russia combined)
Now check this out:
Under the Paris Agreement, China "promises" (and we can always trust Communist regimes with Social Issue promises 17 years out) to "peak" (meaning increase until it gets there) its emissions at a level "only" 34% higher than current emissions...
(Source: Reuters 6/30/2015 - http://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-china-climatechange-idUSKCN0PA1G420150630)
well 34% of 10.4 bn tons is 3.5 bn tons... which is equal to the entire output by the entire EU combined today. China already spews as much as the US-EU-and-Russia COMBINED, is the most polluted nation on earth... and gets to ADD another EU on top of that... while paying nothing... and the Western world has to cut back, and finance the developing countries.

It’s interesting data. Now to some extent in the US we have purposely moved our pollution to others shores. All our computer and printed circuit boards are made in Asia, I think.
So if we take some of those manufacturing operations back to the US, we get some of that back. But nonetheless we are already pretty strong.
