Dis-United States – Billionaire Bloomberg Builds Coalition Of States To Combat Climate Change

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

Billionaire, and former New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg would like for you to know that, despite Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate agreement, he’s absolutely intent upon imposing the environmental ‘tax’ contemplated in the agreement on you anyway. As such, he’s developing a coalition of U.S. states, cities and business leaders to defy the President’s decision and comply with the terms of the original deal.  

Billionaire philanthropist and businessman Michael Bloomberg is defying President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate change agreement, saying he is rallying a bipartisan coalition of states, cities and business leaders to meet the climate pact’s targets even as the president rescinds the nation’s commitment to it.

“Americans are not walking away from the Paris Climate Agreement,” Bloomberg said on Thursday. “Just the opposite — we are forging ahead. Mayors, governors, and business leaders from both political parties are signing on to to a statement of support that we will submit to the U.N. — and together, we will reach the emission reduction goals the United States made in Paris in 2015.”

Bloomberg’s philanthropic groups, in partnership with others, is also making a $15 million contribution to fund the U.N.’s climate secretariat, which will lose money under Trump. “Americans will honor and fulfill the Paris Agreement by leading from the bottom up — and there isn’t anything Washington can do to stop us,” Bloomberg said.

Not surprisingly, Bloomberg’s ‘coalition’ is comprised of the snowflake states of California, New York and Washington…which should result in people moving out of those states even faster than they already are.

Bloomberg made the announcement as California, New York and Washington are forming a pact to enact policies to help meet the emission reduction targets called for under the Paris Agreement.

The Democratic governors’ new agreement would seek to meet the same goal of reducing emissions 26 to 28 percent from 2005 levels as the U.S. committed to under the Paris deal. Details on individual state contributions are still to be worked out.

Finally, because Bloomberg seems to live in an alternative universe where Americans consider global climate trends among their key voting priorities, we would remind him that those same Americans just elected a President who vowed repeatedly in 2016 to withdraw from the Paris climate deal and once had this to say about global warming:

“The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

So, while this may be a priority for you Mr. Bloomberg, a man who undoubtedly flies all over the world on a fleet of private jets, it’s probably safe to say that the majority of Americans, especially those living outside the safe spaces of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle, either don’t agree with you on climate change or simply don’t care.

  1. I’ve really had way to much of these idiots, billionaires, that are constantly digging into my pockets and life.

    This won’t stop until WE STOP it, period.

    1. agree …….and why is it no one asks these morons how a tax is going to stop ‘climate change’…….their commie scam was exposed years ago but they bank on the sheeple

  2. “… he’s absolutely intent upon imposing the environmental ‘tax’ contemplated in the agreement on you anyway.”

    It takes time & mammon to create these bogus extraction schemes, and a LOT of time has gone into perpetrating THIS particular one.

    Bloominidiot would just as soon not have to come up with a whole new bogus ‘tax’ scheme, he prefers to keep milking the old one, apparently.


  3. Back to 2015. Forbes Magazine. George Soros and Obama used the government like a blunt object to beat down coal stocks and make money.
    George Soros “Open Societies Foundation” provided the funding for the “Climate Policy Initiative.” The CPI published several white papers that argued that the government should use policies to shut down the coal industry. And the EPA went right to work destroying the industry (and saving the world). Soros Fund Management bought up shares in ACI (Arch Coal Industries and BTU (Peabody Energy).
    But what to do about the coal stocks?
    I would expect this short covering rally to yield to reality at some point soon because while this President and this EPA are in power, the pressure on the coal industry will persist.
    But the second this President is gone and especially if there’s a Republican President, I would expect a huge rally in whatever coal companies still have a pulse. After all, we derive a great deal of our electric power from coal. (Turns out that uber-green Germany is building 12 coal-fired power plants)
