James Delingpole, one of my writing heroes, gets stuck into the rather weird idea of paying huge sums of cash to other countries in the vain hopes of ‘Changing the Weather’.
His take on Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement/Accord/whatever fiasco is about the same as mine; in that anyone who actually read the damn thing, instead of singing ‘Koombaya’, would have realised that the whole shebang had but two purposes. Number One; to burden America with the sole job of pumping Billions of dollars towards other ‘deserving countries’, as part of the Green Bank. Number Two; to give India and China a twenty-year clear run at using coal for power, whilst lumbering America with all the expensive windmills in the world, whilst banning the very thing, shale oil and gas, which is making America the world’s energy superpower!
Oh, and just by-the-by; we here in the UK have promised to send ever-more borrowed money towards the big,
green black hole which is the effing Paris Accord!
