Au Revoir, Paris Accord

On June 1, 2017 President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Treaty, often called the Paris Agreement or Accord.  Based on the caterwauling and wringing of hands by environmentalists, the media, state and local officials, and foreign leaders, you would have thought that floods would be ensuing within days due to the polar ice caps melting overnight and the end of the world was nigh.

We Won't Always Have Paris

Yesterday, President Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Treaty or, as it is often called, the Paris Accord.  He righted what has been a bone of contention since the agreement's birth at the Paris climate change meeting in November 2015.  Many senators and policy analysts have rightfully argued the climate agreement was a treaty and should have been submitted to the Senate for advice and consent, as the Constitution requires.  But, President Obama did not want to submit it to the Senate because he knew it would not be ratified.  Instead, he continued his executive overreach and implemented the policy illegally with his “pen and his phone.”  Chris Horner and Marlo Lewis of the Competitive Enterprise Institute discuss in their May 2017 report the serious legal and economic consequences to the U.S. if President Obama’s actions were not reversed.
