“Radical environmentalists will fight the [new executive] order in every way they can, in Congress, in the courts, in the media, and apparently in the streets. As a citizen, you need to stay informed of the stakes and tactics in this battle, and we at the Cornwall Alliance need your support to keep up the good fight.”
If you pay attention to news sources outside the typical conservative camp, you’ll have noticed two things in the last couple days: First the titles are all ridiculous in their alarmism (we are all going to die, etc. etc. etc.). Second, that impending doom is solely due to President Donald J. Trump’s recent executive order attempting to roll back some of Barack Obama’s Climate Legacy. To say that environmentalists are spitting mad is an understatement so vast I hesitate to make it, but the mental picture is good, so let’s go with it.
The Huffington Post, in their article titled “Environmentalists Vow To Fight Donald Trump’s ‘Dangerous,’ ‘Embarrassing’ Climate Rollback,” reported the head of the Sierra Club saying,
“Trump can’t reverse our clean energy and climate progress with the stroke of a pen, and we’ll fight Trump in the courts, in the streets, and at the state and local level across America to protect the health of every community.”
While it’s laughable that radical environmentalists have decided to channel Winston Churchill to make their point (see his brilliant Dunkirk speech to see what I mean), it’s also scary, because they are threatening to fight not just legal battles but in the streets. Radical environmentalists believe with a fervor of religious proportions—the environment is their god—and they will not stop just because they were dealt a minor set-back. This fight is just heating up, folks.
And people in poverty around the world are still in desperate need of relief. That’s why we absolutely have to do two things:
- Trash the endangerment finding.
- Completely, 100%, get out of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
We stand ready to fight for these life-giving policy changes. Will you stand with us? Individuals, families, people struggling, both here and abroad, need access to abundant, affordable, reliable energy. They need relief from onerous regulations, they need relief from bureaucrats who believe they know what’s best for people thousands of miles away.
Trump’s executive order should remove important barriers particularly to the coal industry, which employs, directly or indirectly, over 100,000 Americans but has been hard hit by the Obama Administration’s needless regulations. But don’t be fooled. Radical environmentalists will fight the order in every way they can, in Congress, in the courts, in the media, and apparently in the streets. As a citizen, you need to stay informed of the stakes and tactics in this battle, and we at the Cornwall Alliance need your support to keep up the good fight.
