1. The PARIS Agreement costs: $2.5 trillion in lost GDP.

2. It will increase electricity costs between 13% to 20%.

3. 400,000 jobs will be lost -of which 200k are in manufacturing.

4. It will reduce the income of a family of 4 by $20,000.

5. It asks U.S. and China to pay for carbon emotions. However, only we pledged the most while China hasn’t pledged anything.

6. According to corporate leaders the withdrawal from the Paris Agreement will have little impact on their investments and strategies. Companies are already adjusting to consumer demands to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. They’re held responsible by consumers -not government.

7. Firms buy natural gas and renewable electricity because it is becoming cheaper (due to advancing technology), not because the omnipotent government tells them. Technology is the best way to reduce emissions -not treaties. And to do so without harming consumers through increasing the cost of electricity.

8. The Paris Agreement only mitigates about 0.2 degrees of the 2 degrees of expected warming -if UN models are accurate (doubtful).

9. After Bush’s Kyoto withdrawal, electricity prices in the US were half of the European Union average -which went up by 55% from 2005 to 2013. US energy prices are 1/3 of the prices in Germany -where emissions have gone up thanks to the abandonment of nuclear power.

10. Germany IS A PRIME EXAMPLE OF THE INEFFICIENCY OF GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED MARKETS. Draughts, surpluses & carbon emissions are up in Germany.

11. 15% of the world (1.2 billion ppl) don’t have access to electricity, yet alone the capability to get it through green energy.

12. Biofuels lead to 200k/yr of additional deaths because crops aren’t producing food due to government mandates for biofuels.

13. Third World countries need their own industrial revolution. The  Paris Agreement negates that right.

14. It will cost $100 trillion to MAYBE reduce global warming by 3/10 of 1 degree by 2100. Less than 1% of its’ targets.

15. A 26-28% reduction of 2005 green house emissions levels by 2025 reduces GDP by 150 billion $/yr and costs 6 million jobs.

16. 20-30% raise in the cost of electricity, and a 150th thousands of a degree cooling by 2100 postpones global warming by 8 months.

17. $100 billion/year of our tax money transfers to 3rd world countries and their corrupt governments.

18. Fossil fuels are the cheapest, most efficient and cost effective form of energy.

19. We must keep manufacturing in developed countries because of proper local regulations. Standards in 3rd World countries will damage the planet.

20. The United States contributed $1 billion to the global Green Climate Fund, but the world’s top polluters contributed nothing. -China Russia India

BETTER THAN #ParisAgreement:
1.Drill locally
2.Simplify tax code
3.Reduce gov spending
4.Reduce Deficit spending
5.Reduce Deficit financing
