TOLD YOU SO, TREE HUGGERS! Trump is Good News for The Environment

There was no doubt a bit of trepidation among the environmentally savvy when Donald Trump took office, especially for those on the left side of the aisle.  But, now that we’re over a year and a half into the Trump Era, that worried has been massaged more than just a little.

The left simply hates the President because he’s a conservative who beat Hillary Clinton…otherwise, there would be no excuse for their constant ignorance of the President’s continued successes.  Simply put, it is a lot like the old wives’ tale about ostriches burying their heads in the sand when something unpleasant comes along.  The left is acting no differently when it comes to the impressive win column that the President is racking up.

And, of course, the President simply couldn’t be making huge strides when it comes to the environment, could he?  Especially not after so stupidly pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord?  Right liberals?

Trigger warning for the Peta nerds:  There is more than one way to skin a cat.

President Trump must be laughing until his sides hurt.

New reports show that greenhouse gas emissions are plunging in the United States and rising in Europe—and the drop in the U.S. is due to falling costs of renewable energy and natural gas.

As Tony Mecia writes for The Weekly Standard:

“A report released last week by the Rhodium Group says that even though Trump “continues to unravel Obama-era climate and clean energy policies,” falling costs of renewable energy and natural gas are “keeping U.S. greenhouse gas emissions on the downswing.” The latest government data show emissions have fallen 12 percent from 2005 to 2016. The Rhodium Group report estimates that by 2020, emissions will have fallen between 15 percent and 17 percent compared with 2005 levels.”

Well, would you look at that?

Now, the left will try to argue that we could certainly being doing more, and they will point to Europe and the globalist EU who are still heavily invested in the Paris Accord that former President Barack Obama was so fond of.  That would be a mistake for them.

The European statistics body Eurostat reported in May that European Union carbon emissions grew 1.8%. Eurostat wrote, “Italy and France both posted a 3.2 percent rise, increasing their share of emissions to 10.7 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

Spain’s numbers were even worse.  So much for the idea that globalist cabals know what’s best for the globe.
The rate at which President Trump is rearranging political normalcy is astonishing, to say the very least.  We live in a whole new world, it seems, and I for one can’t wait for the “I Told You So” convention that we get to invite all of the #WalkAway democrats to.
