Davos Reminds: Other Countries Aren't Committing Economic Suicide for Climate Change

June 7, 2022

In very many WEFs past, lots of countries have made lots of climate change pledges and promises. They then moved on as if they never said anything - and kept doing what they had always been doing.

The world’s globalist billionaire “leaders” recently gathered in Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) - to discuss murdering economics:

“One-third of the roughly 270 WEF panel discussions in Davos will focus on climate change or its effects, with extreme weather, efforts to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and finding new, cleaner sources of energy on the agenda.”

Of course, the world’s globalist billionaire “leaders” are all members of the “Do As I Say - Not As I Do” Club. 

Just How Much CO2 Did Woke Elites Spew Flying Private Jets To Davos?:

“Overall, roughly 1,500 private jets flew to and from airports near Davos for the WEF annual meeting in 2019, according to an analysis from Air Charter Service, The Guardian reported at the time. The firm didn’t conduct a similar analysis for this year’s conference, a spokesperson told TheDCNF.”

Get that?  When the number of private jets flying in to discuss “climate change” is an embarrassment?  Stop counting the private jets.

At Davos, Are Leaders’ Private Jets and Limos Actually Hurting Climate-Change Efforts?

Gee, ya think?

If you still take these globalists seriously - about anything?  You’re either not paying attention - or are irretrievably stupid. 

In very many WEFs past, lots of countries have made lots of climate change pledges and promises.  They then moved on as if they never said anything - and kept doing what they had always been doing.

And as is always the case when people get away with things?  These countries are attempting to get away with bigger and more brazen things.     

Having faced zero consequences for lying about doing climate change things? 

Not a Single G20 Country Is in Line with the Paris Agreement on Climate, Analysis Shows

Nations now increasingly don’t even bother to lie.  To wit: China, Russia and India are the three biggest “emitters” not named US….

Cop26: China, India and Russia Must ‘Do More’ to Tackle Climate Crisis

Except….

China, Russia, India, Worlds Top 3 Methane Emitters, Won't Pledge to Cut Emissions

China, India, and Russia Aren't Interested in Updating Their Emissions Targets Before 2025

And they tell lies so biliously preposterous - they are utterly unenforceable even if they weren’t lying.

India Targets 2070 for Net-Zero Emissions

China's Contentious Path to Net-Zero by 2060

Russia Aims to Reach Net Zero Emissions by 2060

Just about none of the globalist fat cats (emphasis on “fat”) bearing witness to these Davos climate “pledges” will be alive in 2060 when they first begin coming due.  If any of these nations actually intended on adhering to them - which they absolutely do not. 

India, China, Russia Kill Climate Deal

These international climate “pledges” aren’t worth the very many dead trees on which they’re printed.  They are nothing but gassy, sound-good soundbites. 

Because these countries wish not to commit economic suicide.  And I certainly don’t blame them. 

But exceedingly awful president Joe Biden is rigorously determined to commit US economic suicide on our behalf.

Biden Commits to Cutting U.S. Emissions in Half by 2030

That means the US economy doesn’t grow - it shrinks by about 50%.  In eight years.  And as I’m sure you’ve noticed - what with the heinously horrendous economy in which we all are mired?  Biden isn’t just saying these things - he’s actually doing them.

Video of the Day: Joe Biden Promises No More Drilling for Oil - Period

Joe Biden Just Promised No Coal Power Plants Will Ever Be Built In America

No empty economic suicide pledges from Biden.  Like, say, from China, Russia and India.

China Is Investing in Its Domestic Oil and Gas Industry

Russian Oil Production Is Rebounding and Will Keep Rising

India Continues to Buy More Oil from Russia Despite the Western Pressure

India Looks To Buy More Iranian Oil

China Tells Mines to Produce ’As Much Coal as Possible’

China Needs Russian Coal. Moscow Needs New Customers

In Russia, Coal Is Still King. And The Government Wants Even More

India Ramps Up Coal Production

So as but a tiny salve to our under-climate-siege economy?  Let’s tax the imports from these climate liars.

Trump Trade Principles to Mitigate the Climate Alarmists and Their Many Taxes:

“We have been artificially, dramatically increasing the cost of our energy - while no other country really has. 

“Which is a de facto subsidy.  By every other country - for every product they export to us.

“Because everything they do - is cheaper than everything we do.  Everything they make - is cheaper than everything we make.

“How should we rectify this idiocy?  How do we get to global ‘climate change’ even?

The ‘Border Adjustment Tax’: Great Tax Reform - That Gets Us Great Trade Reform

Border Carbon Tax: DC Can Do Better - When It Chooses to Do So

Build Back Never: Let’s Carbon Tax Them - Not US:

“‘What Is a Carbon Border Tax and What Does It Mean for Trade?:

“‘A carbon border adjustment tax is a duty on imports based on the amount of carbon emissions resulting from the production of the product in question. As a price on carbon, it discourages emissions. As a trade-related measure, it affects production and exports.’

“The US imposing a carbon tax on US - will export lots and LOTS of companies and jobs.  Taxing them and not US - will do exactly the opposite:

“‘Instead of taxing exports and not imports, we’d be taxing imports and not exports. Instead of reading about corporate inversions and outsourcing, we’d be reading about jobs and firms moving into the U.S. to take advantage of the favorable tax rules here.’”

Yes, please. 

At the very least, it would help to mitigate the egregious “climate change” damage Biden is unilaterally doing to US.
