Democrats Initially Bashed the Paris Climate Accord

Liberals are up in arms over the possibility that President Trump will pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord.

President Trump will announce on Thursday afternoon whether the United States will stay or leave the Paris climate accord, and liberals are outraged over the possibility of the United States leaving.

However, these same individuals and groups were none too happy when the Paris climate accord was initially agreed to.

James Hansen, who is the “father of climate change awareness,” called the deal “a fraud,” “bullshit,” and “worthless words:”

“‘It’s a fraud really, a fake,’ he says, rubbing his head. ‘It’s just bullshit for them to say: ‘We’ll have a 2C warming target and then try to do a little better every five years.’ It’s just worthless words. There is no action, just promises. As long as fossil fuels appear to be the cheapest fuels out there, they will be continued to be burned.’”

While, Kumi Naidoo, the executive director of Greenpeace International, said that elements of the deal “frustrate and disappoint” him.

Then there’s Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who said the deal went “nowhere near far enough” when it was announced.

Regardless of whether President Trump decides to leave the Paris climate accord, or stay in it but reduce America’s role, liberals will be outraged by Trump’s decision.
