Paris Climate Accord Groupthink is Dangerous

Paris Climate Accord Groupthink is Dangerous

In the days since President Donald Trump has dropped out of the Paris Climate Accord, we’ve seen one thing from the left — group-think. Climate change or “global warming” has been one of the attempts of group-think from the left in the last 5 years.

Climate Change is Groupthink

Science by definition is challenging what is considered fact and finding a different answer, not the answer. Many people on the left and some on the right have taken the position that Climate Change is fact and they have expressed it since the President had dropped out of the Paris Climate Accord. Not only have they come to said conclusion, they have been forcing that conclusion on other people whether or not those people agree with that conclusion. The last time in the history of civilization that an idea was so vigorously denied was when someone thought the Earth was not the center of the universe. Are we as a civilization going to allow ideas to be ostracized because they do not follow the agreed upon order? Are we going to allow progress in science to be halted because it doesn’t fit the narrative of a politician turned climate scientist? I for one, hope not.

The Paris Climate Accord Was a Raw Deal and Everyone Knew It

The Paris Climate Accord was a destructive deal. While I do not agree with everything the President does, I agree 100% with pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord. The Accord was nothing other then a giant redistribution of wealth from the richest economy on the planet to the poorest ones. The United States would have contributed over $100 billion a year to maybe decrease global temperatures by 0.031 degrees Celsius. Is that worth $100 billion dollars and 6 million American jobs? Absolutely not. The President made the right call and quite frankly should not seek to re-enter the Accord.
