Small Businesses Cheer ‘New Sheriff in Town’ After Climate Pact Exit

Post by silvermani on Sat Jun 03, 2017 10:12 am

Good move by President Trump. 

As news that President Trump was pulling out of the Paris climate accord hit at a luncheon for small-business owners in Toledo, Ohio, on Thursday, an already happy crowd suddenly turned euphoric. “It was like a major win at a football game,” said Rick Longenecker, a management consultant who had been among the 50 or so attendees who gathered to trade thoughts amid a rapidly improving local economy. While multinational corporations such as Disney, Goldman Sachs and IBM have opposed the president’s decision to walk away from the international climate agreement, many small companies around the country were cheering him on, embracing the choice as a tough-minded business move that made good on Mr. Trump’s commitment to put America’s commercial interests first.

Do you believe that climate change is real? Do you believe that human activity is a major contributor to it?

Is climate change the new moniker for the debunked global warming? Poor beaurocrats, politicians and environmentalists - without something to scare people about, how else are they going to get funding? That being said, I am in favor of reducing pollution as much as possible and spending energy resources prudently.

You didn't exactly answer the question. Are you usually ashamed of your beliefs or is that the case only when your views are out of step with over 90% of scientists?

If you don't think climate change is real, why should we reduce pollution or spend energy resources prudently? Let the market decide the most efficient way to use those resources, na?
