I thought when we got EPA Pruitt as the man for the job, the nonsense over climate change would end. But no, we have Daddy’s little girl Ivanka to “review” the Paris Climate Change Agreement. Pruitt and she will head on over to Europe for the meeting.That sounds like a swell combo after Pruitt said the agreement should be ended. I am in no mood for more nonsense after last week’s fiasco with the budget and Obamacare. Just what is Ivanka’s knowledge base for this review? Here we go:
Ivanka Trump has been tapped by her father, President Donald Trump, to review the United States’ commitment to the Paris Climate Change agreement, signed by former President Barack Obama as an executive agreement in 2015 without congressional approval, the Associated Press is reporting.
The agreement requires countries to cut greenhouse emissions on a country-by-country basis, with Obama committing the U.S. to reduce carbon emissions by at least 26 percent below 2005 levels by 2025.
Last month, in an interview with FOX and Friends,Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said that the “Paris [agreement] is something that we need to really look at closely. It’s something we need to exit, in my opinion. It’s a bad deal for America. It was an America second, third, or fourth kind of approach.
“China and India had no obligations under the agreement until 2030,” Pruitt added. “We front-loaded all of our costs.”
