Thursday was a sunny day in Washington.

The End Of Obama’s Corrupt Global Warming Treaty

Obama and his liberal allies from Hollywood to Silicon Valley to Wall Street claimed that the goal of the Paris climate treaty was to reduce so-called greenhouse gasses. However, its effect was to produce a massive wealth transfer from American workers to foreigners and wealthy investors.
