Debunking The Fool. Trump’s Paris climate speech claims analyzed – Oliver Milman. 

“So we’re getting out. But we will start to negotiate, and we will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.” 

So that’s that. After months of fevered speculation and lobbying, Trump sticks to his campaign pledge to withdraw the US from the Paris climate accord. He does so with a caveat that’s delivered rather casually – the US will renegotiate this pact, or maybe some other pact, aimed at ensuring the future liveability of the planet. But if it doesn’t work out, that’s OK.

“Compliance with the terms of the Paris accord and the onerous energy restrictions it has placed on the United States could cost America as much as 2.7m lost jobs by 2025, according to the National Economic Research Associates.”

Trump’s vision of a hobbled America, ransacked by pointless environmental regulation, draws upon a highly disputed study published in March. National Economic Research Associates has done work for front groups for coal companies in the past and this study was at the behest of the American Council for Capital Formation, which counts Exxon Mobil, the American Petroleum Institute and Charles Koch as major donors.

The Paris agreement itself places no “energy restrictions” on the US – it’s a voluntary agreement that leaves it up to countries to decide how to cut their emissions. But several economists have warned that leaving the Paris agreement will stymie clean energy investment and ensure the production of solar panels and wind turbines – the very blue-collar jobs Trump claims to value – will take place in China rather than the US.

It could get worse still – some countries are mulling a carbon “tariff” on US goods over Trump’s decision to swim against the energy transition that is underway. None of this will help a coal industry that was in decline long before the Paris deal. This is perhaps why business support for Paris is broad, uniting the likes of Facebook, Goldman Sachs, Apple and even BP.

“For example, under the agreement, China will be able to increase these emissions by a staggering number of years – 13. They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us. India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries. There are many other examples. But the bottom line is that the Paris Accord is very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States.”

Trump repeatedly touches on a familiar theme of the US being taken advantage of by foreign ingrates. The Paris deal was considered a breakthrough because it required all nations to curb their emissions – including, crucially, China and India. Given that both these countries do not have more than a century of mass industrialization behind them, unlike the US, their commitments should be seen in context. Indeed, recent analysis has shown that China may have already peaked its coal use and will be reducing its emissions sooner than expected, although suspicions linger over its accounting methods.

Either way, both China and India have reiterated their commitment to the Paris deal in recent weeks and are investing heavily in renewable energy. That they are doing this with tens of millions of their people still without electricity and other basic services shows that perhaps it isn’t terribly unfair to expect the world’s wealthiest nation to do likewise.

“In short, the agreement doesn’t eliminate coal jobs, it just transfers those jobs out of America and the United States, and ships them to foreign countries.”

According to the Department of Energy there are about 373,000 Americans working in solar energy – more than double that of the coal industry. The coal sector has been shedding jobs for decades, driven by automation of work and, more recently, the abundance of cheap natural gas.

Major coal mining firms have conceded those jobs aren’t coming back and it’s not quite clear how American mining jobs can be shifted overseas given the US isn’t a coal exporter and US power plants aren’t crying out for extra minerals to keep the lights on. What’s more likely, according to economists, is that growth in renewable energy innovation and construction jobs will tip overseas, probably to China, which has committed to investing $360bn in the sector in the coming years.

“Our country will be at grave risk of brownouts and blackouts, our businesses will come to a halt in many cases, and the American family will suffer the consequences in the form of lost jobs and a very diminished quality of life.”

This dark vision would perhaps approach reality if a.) the only source of electricity in the US was coal, rather than a mix of nuclear, gas, coal and renewables, b.) the Paris agreement set any sort of binding limit on energy sources, and c.) the US government followed through with this by shutting down power plants rather than asking states to submit plans to transition away from polluting fossil fuels (as the Obama administration did). None of that has actually happened or was slated to happen.

“Even if the Paris agreement were implemented in full, with total compliance from all nations, it is estimated it would only produce a two-tenths of one degree – think of that; this much – Celsius reduction in global temperature by the year 2100. Tiny, tiny amount.”

White House “talking points” distributed before Trump’s speech cite MIT research for the 0.2-degree reduction. This prompted a swift rebuttal from the actual source, a collaboration between MIT and Climate Interactive. The researchers point out the reduction in expected warming from emissions cuts promised at Paris will be 0.9 degrees by 2100, not 0.2 degrees.

This still won’t be enough to avoid breaching the warming limit set out in the Paris deal but it’s worth considering that 0.9C is roughly the global temperature rise experienced since the industrial revolution. People living in southern Florida, or Bangladesh or beside a coral reef that provides food and a livelihood would have radically different lives if the global temperature increase was double its current level.

“The United States, under the Trump administration, will continue to be the cleanest and most environmentally friendly country on Earth. We’ll be the cleanest. We’re going to have the cleanest air. We’re going to have the cleanest water.”

Under the Trump administration, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has paused or scrapped rules that prevent the dumping of mining waste into streams, curb emissions from vehicles and power plants and stop mercury and arsenic seeping into waterways. The EPA’s proposed budget also cuts measures that prevent lead in drinking water and also scraps clean-ups of the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico and shrinks the funding of enforcement of pollution rules.

“And we’ll sit down with the Democrats and all of the people that represent either the Paris accord or something that we can do that’s much better than the Paris accord. And I think the people of our country will be thrilled, and I think then the people of the world will be thrilled. But until we do that, we’re out of the agreement.”

In common with some other policy areas, Trump seems to be believe his negotiating skills can overcome issues that leaders have grappled with for years. Paris came about after 20 years of often painful incremental manoeuvrings that included the disappointment of Copenhagen in 2009, and world leaders have already made clear they aren’t “thrilled” at the prospect of reversing this breakthrough.

France, Italy and Germany released a statement saying that the Paris deal can’t be redone, while the EU and China jointly declared the agreement was “irreversible”. The UK, Canada and Australia all reaffirmed their commitment to the agreement with Justin Trudeau, Canada’s prime minister, saying he is “deeply disappointed” with Trump’s decision. UN secretary general Antonio Guterres called it a “major disappointment.”

The US may return to Paris, with Trump or a future president, but there will be lingering diplomatic damage that will haunt the country on the international stage far more than the Kyoto reversal under George W Bush.

“At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country?”

Well, at this point there’s certainly not much laughter.

“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”

Here, Trump seems to confuse the venue of the UN climate agreement signing for the actual subject of the accord. It’s also worth noting that Bill Peduto, mayor of Pittsburgh, committed to the Paris deal, along with dozens of other US municipalities, after Trump’s announcement. About 65,000 people in Pennsylvania work in the renewable energy industry, more than mining, oil and gas combined.

“Of course, the world’s top polluters have no affirmative obligations under the green fund, which we terminated.”

Again Trump portrays the Paris deal as an onerous ball and chain around the ankle of a struggling America, which somehow isn’t now one of the world’s leading polluters. The climate fund is voluntary and Barack Obama pledged about $3bn to it. Given the scale of the climate challenge – rising seas, drought and disasters are already estimated to displace about 20 million people a year, according to the UN – even this funding is likely to be insufficient.

“And exiting the agreement protects the United States from future intrusions on the United States’ sovereignty and massive future legal liability. Believe me, we have massive legal liability if we stay in.”

One of the – ultimately successful – arguments put by opponents of the Paris deal to Trump was that his domestic agenda of revoking Obama-era environmental regulations would be jeopardised by the agreement. Architects of the deal have disputed this, pointing out that it is voluntary and non-binding and would carry no weight in a US court.

Ultimately, the only recourse to Trump’s decision will be through the ballot box. The notice period for withdrawing from the Paris deal expires in November 2020 – the month of the next presidential election. Climate change will likely be, for once, a live issue at the election.

In a truly shocking turn of events, former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush both refused to endorse Trump. Instead, they have both made it clear that they will be voting for Clinton in the November of 2016 election. Now yet another member of the Bush family, who is considered by many to be the key political family in the Republican party, has shown her support for Clinton.

In a tweet by Barbara Bush Pierce, she shows her support for Clinton to her many followers. The image pictures Barbara standing next to Huma Abedin, with a caption reading “We’re with her!” Abedin is a Clinton aide who is considered particularly essential to the Clinton campaign.

IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT! YOU, WHO DIDN’T VOTE. 

I worry that this country of might and diversity is so angry, a cartoonish demagogue can ascend to power on the backs of forgotten people, while blatantly contradicting the values they claim dear. – Jack Tame

This is an awfully personal election.

I’ve covered the campaign for the last two years. I don’t know for sure what Wednesday’s results will bring. The structure of the Electoral College and current polling in various states make Clinton the favourite for the White House, but no shoo-in.

This, a land of immigrants. This, a land of liberty. One nation under God, and all that.

America is now, if not in the majority at least in sizeable part, a land where people cheer for Muslims to be banned and Hispanics to be hunted by a Deportation Force.

It is a land where a leader can gloat of sexually assaulting women, mock the disabled and boast of having not paid taxes.

He can discriminate against black people by banning them from living in his buildings and perpetuate a preposterous racist lie about a sitting president.

Tens of millions of people will vote for him.

Nothing, despite all the hysteria after the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, has changed. –

At this juncture in human evolution we once again face a critical choice as a species. Do we objectively evaluate our real values, needs and wants in relation to our recent three decade long economic experiment, otherwise known as Neoliberal Economic (mis)Management and return to common sense and balanced government, citizen and business regulation that benefits everybody. –
How do we achieve this?
We use the most powerful weapon we have with which to enforce our wishes on government, a privilege hundreds of thousands of our forefathers sacrificed everything for.
WE VOTE!
The rich and the greedy vote, statistically over 80% of them.
The rest of us and the young are too quick to accept the myth that ‘my vote makes no difference’.
Well … consider this.
Consider everything that has turned large parts of the world from a bad place into an even worse place for the majority of their populations since a deranged gang of criminally suicidal narcissists flew passenger planes into the Twin Towers of Finance, the ‘World’ Trade Center.
Also consider that there are 218 million eligible voters in the US.
The 2000 us presidential election went to George WMD Bush because of 1784 voters in Florida. That’s 0.0008% of Americans with the Power on the day to avoid 16 years of the massively damaging US foreign policy, military action and arrogant skulduggery. –
Your VOTE is worth gold, every vote has the potential to swing an election.

The epic fail of the American electorate. – Petula Dvorak. 

Hey America, do you like this election?

No?

But this is what you created.

You, America, stopped listening to facts you didn’t agree with, stopped reading newspapers or watching broadcasts that didn’t entertain you or confirm what you already believed, stopped trying to understand legislation and policy, stopped bothering to engage in civil discussion or master the basics of civic responsibilities.

You, America, blame Washington for everything that’s wrong with this country, but then told pollsters that the federal Government isn’t doing enough to help you.

You, America, actually believe that reality television is real. And that politics is a form of reality TV. And thanks to that, we have an election that’s more American Idol than American Constitution.

You realise we’re probably just one election cycle away from a Kardashian in office. Because, what the heck? Let’s try something new!

Paul Krugman Reveals Who Really Broke Our Democracy and Why. 

You may remember the baldfaced lies that led us into the Iraq war, for which no one has ever been held accountable. 

“As far as anyone can tell, Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House — and the leader of what’s left of the Republican establishment — isn’t racist or authoritarian. He is, however, doing all he can to make a racist authoritarian the most powerful man in the world. Why? Because then he could privatize Medicare and slash taxes on the wealthy.

While Trump has certainly accelerated that process with his daily shattering of every political (and human) norm—a steady stream of lies, not releasing his taxes, bragging about sexual assault—it was all well underway before him. 

Nothing was too implausible to get on talk radio and get favorable mention in Congress and in conservative media: Hillary killed Vince Foster! Bill was a drug smuggler!

Nothing was too trivial to trigger congressional hearings.

Donald Trump Is No Outsider; He Mirrors Our Political Culture. 

The worst thing about Donald Trump is that he’s the man in the mirror.

We love to horrify ourselves with his excesses, and to see him as a monstrous outlier, the polar opposite of everything a modern, civilised society represents. But he is nothing of the kind. He is the distillation of all that we have been induced to desire and admire. Trump is so repulsive not because he offends our civilisation’s most basic values, but because he embodies them.

Trump personifies the traits promoted by the media and corporate worlds he affects to revile; the worlds that created him. He is the fetishisation of wealth, power and image in a nation where extrinsic values are championed throughout public discourse. His conspicuous consumption, self-amplification and towering (if fragile) ego are in tune with the dominant narratives of our age.

“Trump is a Disgrace, so is Newt Gingrich.” – Robert Reich. 

​Three weeks ago I told Newt Gingrich to his face before an audience of 3,000 that he had laid the groundwork for Trump when as Speaker of the House in the 1990s Gingrich blocked all legislation that might have put the working class on an upward trajectory rather than its downward one. And when Gingrich’s anti-government, scorched-earth tactics set a precedent for winning at all costs. 

Gingrich set other precedents for Trump: During 1990s debates over welfare reform, Gingrich invoked racial stereotypes about African-Americans. During his unsuccessful bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, Gingrich repeatedly called President Obama the “food stamp president.” And Gingrich played to birther movement sentiments in 2010 when he said that Mr. Obama exhibited “Kenyan, anticolonial behavior.”
Gingrich is a major supporter of Trump, and now that Trump is imploding, Gingrich is positioning himself as the keeper of the Trump-campaign themes and, by extension, as the politician best able to mobilize Trump supporters going forward. “I don’t defend him [Trump] when he wanders off,” Gingrich recently told ABC News. But “there’s a big Trump and there’s a little Trump,” he said, explaining that the big Trump is the one who has created issues that make “the establishment” very uncomfortable. “The big Trump,” he said, “is a historic figure.”
Baloney. Trump is a disgrace. So is Newt.

The time is right for a female US president. 

The final presidential ‘debate’, thankfully the last set piece in a wretched campaign, revealed what is admirable and loathsome in American politics. Hillary Clinton displayed a razor-sharp intelligence and a quick wit. Her facility with facts trumped Donald Trump’s lack of them. Americans finally saw on Wednesday why Secretary Clinton had got rich from giving lectures after leaving office. Her fluency with words, which has earned her $22m in speaking fees, appeared to silence her opponent. Mr Trump, a boastful, thin-skinned billionaire who trades in racism and misogyny, was left squawking on the sidelines of the debate. His jibes revealed a man out of his depth. His answer was to plunge down deeper. By disgracefully refusing to rule out calling this a rigged election he gave up a fight he had by then lost. The Guardian 

Even in defeat, Trump will pose a clear and present danger to America. – Robert Reich. 

​Trump’s parting gift to America is to undermine our faith in democratic institutions. “It’s one big fix,’’ Trump said yesterday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C. “This whole election is being rigged.’’ He’s claiming Democrats are planning to load up buses of minorities to vote several times in different areas, that boxes of Clinton votes are already waiting somewhere, that Mexicans are primed to rush across the border to vote, and that the media isn’t reporting any of this because it’s been “bought.”

If he loses, Trump wants to cast a pall over the legitimacy of a Clinton presidency. Some of his followers are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination. 
The Republican Party — the chair of the Republican National Committee, Republican leaders in Congress, and Republican outlets like Fox News — must condemn these dangerous provocations. Even in defeat, Trump will pose a clear and present danger to America.

How Trump Happened. Joseph Stiglitz.

Why would Americans be playing Russian roulette, for that is what even a one-in-six chance of a Trump victory means?

It is no surprise that Trump finds a large, receptive audience when he says the state of the economy is rotten. Real (inflation-adjusted) wages at the bottom of the income distribution are roughly where they were 60 years ago.

The US economy as a whole has done well for the last six decades: GDP has increased nearly six-fold. But the fruits of that growth have gone to a relatively few at the top – people like Trump, owing partly to massive tax cuts that he would extend. 

At the same time, reforms that political leaders promised would ensure prosperity for all – such as trade and financial liberalization – have not delivered. Project Syndicate

Trump’s Deplorables

Alas, the United States has too many relatively uneducated people. Among developed countries, the US ranks low in terms of literacy, general knowledge, and science. Japanese, South Koreans, Dutch, Canadians, and Russians score consistently higher.
Trump attracts mainly less-educated white men, many of whom in earlier generations would have been Democrat-voting coal miners or industrial workers. Does this mean that there is a link between education – or the lack of it – and the appeal of a dangerous demagogue?

Trump’s Magical Economic Plan: An immediate and unmitigated disaster.

by Simon Johnson – former chief economist of the IMF, professor at MIT Sloan, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. 

Trump’s newly released Detailed Economic Plan claims that as president he would boost growth and reduce the national debt. But its projections are based on assumptions so unrealistic that they seem to have come from a different planet. If the United States really did adopt Trump’s plan, the result would be an immediate and unmitigated disaster.

At the heart of the plan is a very large tax cut. The authors claim this would boost economic growth, despite the fact that similar cuts in the past (for example, under President George W. Bush) had no such effect. There is a lot of sensible evidence available on precisely this point, all of which is completely ignored. The tax cut would reduce government revenue by at least $2.6 trillion over ten years but the Trump team claims this would be offset by a growth miracle spurred by deregulation.

In fact, their estimates of the benefits of deregulation are completely exaggerated. Serious independent analysis, for example by the World Bank or the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, finds that the US does not have a high regulatory burden on the non-financial sector.

Financial deregulation is exactly what led to the 2008 crisis – and to much lower growth, higher unemployment, and bigger deficits. Trump seems determined to repeat all the big mistakes of the George W. Bush era. My assessment is that Trump would run up much more than $2.6 trillion in new debt. Project Syndicate

Years after his casino went bust, Gary still skeptical of Trump. 
Donald Trump swooped into Gary, Indiana, on his private jet and pledged to make the down-on-its-luck city great again.

It was 1993, and the New York mogul was wooing officials in the mostly black city to support his bid to dock a showboat casino along a Lake Michigan shoreline littered with shuttered factories. Trump and his representatives later told state gaming officials he would leverage his “incomparable experience” to build a floating Shangri-La, with enough slot machines and blackjack tables to fill city coffers and local charities with tens of millions each year, while creating scores of well-paid jobs for minority residents.
Today, as the Republican presidential nominee pursues black voters with vows to fix inner-city troubles, many Gary residents say his pitch to solve the problems of crime and poverty is disturbingly familiar. Like others who have done business with Trump, they say their experience offers a cautionary tale. NZ Herald

Trump’s Behavior Similar To Male Chimpanzee. – Jane Goodall

“In many ways the performances of Donald Trump remind me of male chimpanzees and their dominance rituals.  In order to impress rivals, males seeking to rise in the dominance hierarchy perform spectacular displays: stamping, slapping the ground, dragging branches, throwing rocks.

The character and temperament of a sewer rat. –  Robert Reich

​What Trump said last night raised the specter of violence against Hillary Clinton to a new level:

“She goes around with armed bodyguards like you have never seen before. I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm. Right? Right? I think they should disarm immediately. What do you think? Yes? Yes. Yeah. Take their guns away. She doesn’t want guns. … Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, okay? It would be very dangerous.”
This is even further than Trump went with his “Second Amendment people” quip in August: “If she gets to pick her judges: Nothing you can do, folks … Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know. But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day.”
Trump knows exactly what he’s suggesting. This man has the character and temperament of a sewer rat.

If by some fluke Donald gets the nod on November 8 I think he could be the first ever president to be assassinated before even taking office.
