Excerpt from The Daily Wire
Written by Ben Shapiro
Wednesday afternoon, President Obama stopped by the White House Rose Garden to inform Americans that he is the greatest human in history. Touting his redistributionist Paris Agreement on climate change, Obama stated, “History may judge today as the turning point for the planet” in the fight against climate change. This followed news that the European Union, Canada and Nepal had joined the agreement; last month, the United States and China said they would join the agreement.
The agreement itself is an abomination. It contains massive new proposed restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions, proposed energy-efficient regulations for buildings, use of the EPA to crack down on Obama-defined pollutants. According to David Kreutzer of the Heritage Foundation, “Restricting the use of conventional energy sources as laid out by the Obama Administration’s INDC will significantly harm the U.S. economy.” Heritage estimates a loss of 206,104 fewer manufacturing jobs between 2016 and 2040; a total income loss of $20,000 for a four-person family by 2035; a GDP loss of $2.5 trillion; and rising electricity costs between 13 and 20 percent.
