Speaker Nancy Pelosi is overseas acting like she’s the President of The United States.
Pelosi is in Spain, attending a two-week “Climate Change” conference and she’s promising everyone and their brother that Congress will tackle climate change, even though she’s not the president and the actual president has no intention of doing anything that she says.
She’s now pledging that Congress will “urgently” tackle global warming despite President Trump’s very firm opposition to any international pact.
“By coming here we want to say to everyone we are still in, the United States is still in,” Pelosi told reporters.
No, Nancy, by going there you’re wasting time and money. You should be back home passing USMCA for the American people, traitor.
Pelosi’s pledge and comments come as governments and whacko environmental groups are “mortified” that President Trump began formal proceedings to remove the United States from the worthless 2015 Paris Agreement.
Trump says complying with the accord would hurt the U.S. economy, restricting domestic producers while other big polluters such as China increase emissions.
But Pelosi, who is also leading the Democrats’ push to impeach the Republican president, sought to reassure allies.
“Our delegation is here to send a message that Congress’s commitment to take action on the climate crisis is iron clad,” she said, flanked by Democratic Congressional representatives.
Pelosi said her decision to visit Madrid during impeachment proceedings showed Democrats were committed to tackling the “existential threat to humanity” from the climate crisis.
“We aren’t here to talk about impeachment of the president of the United States,” Pelosi said in response to a question.
“We’re here to talk positively about our agenda to save the planet for future generations.”
The United States rallied support for the Paris Agreement under the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama. Democrats want to reassure the rest of the world they will once again throw their country’s weight behind the deal if they regain power at elections in November 2020.
Florida Congresswoman Kathy Castor, chair of the House select committee on climate, said the committee will put forward recommendations in March for a comprehensive climate change bill to bring U.S. emissions to net zero by 2050.
But achieving consensus around future U.S. legislation will be a challenge, with campaigners pushing lawmakers and Democratic presidential candidates to pursue a sweeping Green New Deal that twins climate action with social justice. [Yahoo News]
