Foreign policy experts on both sides of the aisle predicted that President Trump’s decision to take the U.S. out of the world’s most significant agreement to fight climate change would leave the U.S. isolated on the issue. Now they have one of their first examples of that argument.
The only reason conservatives hate this agreement is that liberals like it. It’s a non-binding agreement. The sole purpose is to make sure that those who live up to the agreement get a voice in the next phase four years from now. Pulling out serves no US interest other than Trump’s desire to troll the American public.
to deny the science of climate change is to believe in a conspiracy. It may be thought of as a conspiracy between scientists and “the left”, the UN, or all of them, but it is a necessary part of any such position.
Those in public life who deny climate science have long had a free reign in the media, appealing to the right for alternative views to be heard, claiming that this or that study is flawed, or explicitly claiming that a conspiracy exists.
