Obama’s Much Ado About Nothing

While Donald Trump is taking flack for what he might do with the Paris Agreement, we should maybe look back on just what the saintly Obama has managed to achieve in saving the planet.

 

As of 2015, wind and solar power still only produce 5% of US electricity:

In his second term, the contribution has only increased from 3.6% to 5.4%.

If that is the best Obama can do, I don’t know what all the fuss is about.

    “If that is the best Obama can do, I don’t know what all the fuss is about.”

    The fuss is about the radical progressive left watching part of their progressive utopian wealth re-distribution scheme dream going up in CO2. Not to worry- they have lots of other wealth re-distribution irons in the fire. Trump should put the coal industry back online the day after he is inaugurated, and approve the Keystone pipeline the same day just for good measure.

    And if he’d grown the US economy at a reasonable rate it wouldn’t even be 5.4%.

    You’ve Been Trumped

    Is the new international game that has panicked the left-wing elitist cabals into distraught huddles that issues missives and reminders to the thought police (aka MSM) to keep on message. Obediently the media has reissued the blather about the 2016 ‘the hottest year ever’, while commentators, punter, and comedy writers all regurgitate the nonsense of Trump and cabinet will fomenting racist, misogynistic, and trade unrest everywhere. And the BBC’s nearly-comedy shows rehash the stale line that Trump will personally start a nuclear war. Get over it BBC, Hillary lost.

    One thing Trump intends to do is look after the needs of the USA and its people, and therefore he’s expected to axe $billions in climate finance when he and his people take over the White House and Congress in January. Money that will be reused in and for the good of the USA.

    The British population has been Trumped!
    Hey Britain, a national leader who’s primary focus is on taking care of things at home — that would be nice, eh? With BREXIT being delayed until the population realize (too late) it will not happen, and so then they’ll meekly accept the consequences. The consequences being Britain is still signed into the Paris Agreement! Paying a few £billion to the UN via the EU.
    Or is it that the shivering British population is too over-run with debt, distracted by TV & internet babble and the unsettling noise of those damn windfarms to notice?

    All this goes on while people do not discern the cooling weather as each year passes because they are so abstracted.
    You’ve Been Trumped .

    Remember, fracking is responsible for CO2 drops in the USA as coal is replaced by cheap natural gas voluntarily.

    CO2 declines (from BP reference)

    “Declines were led by the US (-145.5 mt, -2.6%) and Russia (-64.4 mt, -4.2%). This is the sixth time in the last decade that the US has had the largest decline in CO2 emissions in the world. Ukraine and Japan continued to post significant declines having fallen in 2014 as well, while emissions in Brazil and Canada also significantly declined. The decline in CO2 emissions in the US now takes it back to its 2012 levels, and nearly 10.5% lower than its peak in 2007”

    Most of the inroads made by wind/solar in the U.S. are from STATE renewable portfolio standards (RPS). I don’t see that idiocy changing just yet.

    Rough cost to US taxpayer of this idiocy?
