Trump Dumps Paris Climate Accords, Musk Dumps Trump  ;D

June 2nd, 2017 by Steve Hanley

What Trump DID accomplish by today’s grandstanding action:

⦁   Stuck it to the ⦁   global community, our European and Japanese allies, and our friendly rivals in China and India. They spent years negotiating this deal, and they’re staying the course – although they are angry that the testy toddler who somehow stumbled into the White House has walked away from the table.

⦁   Thrilled what’s left of his base – although his approval rating continues to hover at catastrophic levels, and even his strongest partisans are starting to waver.

⦁   Thrilled the looters of the rabid right, like the Mercers and the Koch brothers  , who are pleased they can suck a few more years of double-digit profits out of the American public (aka “Trump’s base” – the beleaguered Midwesterners who’s jobs are being exported and whose safety net is being shredded).

Mildly encouraging. Lots of support for the Paris Accords among the capitalists. They aren't all stupid. I was surprised at the backlash. I'm sure you read that Elon Musk bailed on his Trump advisory role.

I know you think that Capitalists like Musk, who actually know how to add and subtract in biosphere math, get it. I agree. But the issue is not Capitalism. Capitalism is part of the problem, not part of the solution. Again, I know you vigorously disagree, so I won't belabor the issue.

All that said, what I find encouraging in Trump's profit over planet action(s) is the confirmation of the fascist right wing overreach I expected ever since the Trump fossil fuel TOOL got (s)elected. The latest bit of overreach FORCES the media to DISCUSS CLIMATE Change, SOMETHING FOX NEWS (and practically, though not as obviously, all other Capitalist news networks in the USA AND the world) generally avoid like the "externalized costs are going to eat our profit over planet lunch if we can't pass that buck onto the rubes   " PLAGUE.

Also, this forces idiots that think profit is God to think about how they are shooting themselves in the FACE, not just the foot, by trashing the commons (otherwise known as the biosphere) for money.

As I guessed way back in November, Trumpy has managed to UNITE a rather  disparate group of powerful nations AGAINST polluting the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels. This is a good thing, although I seriously doubt that most people in Texas would agree that banning the production of fossil fuels, with prison sentences for corporations that do so, is a good thing. But THAT is where, INEVITABLY, this is going, Eddie.  And no, this is not something decades away, as you might surmise. Laugh if you wish, but it would be prudent to get OUT of absolutely any investment based on the health of the fossil fuel fascists now. Forewarned is forearmed. I know what I am talking about. Be well and act prudently.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
