Honesty Is The Best Policy When Dealing With Mr Trump (Just Ask General Flynn) -- July 11, 2017

This is why I know the "climate warming" issue is a scam. If the earth really was at risk of becoming too hot for mankind, bright minds like Tayyip Erdogan, president of Turkey, would never pull out of the "Paris accord" just for a few lousy bucks. The story is at Joannenova.
Ergodan does his own climate maths — decides that the most significant inflatable cash cow has disappeared from the sky. The global climate suddenly looks clearer, and so Turkey pulls back from Paris accord:
(Reuters) The U.S. decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement means Turkey is less inclined to ratify the deal because the U.S. move jeopardizes compensation promised to developing countries, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday. “Therefore, after this step taken by the United States, our position steers a course towards not passing this from the parliament,” he said.
Turkey, saving the planet, one bank account at a time. 
By the way, I hear that Germany has pulled its forces out of the multi-national force based in east Turkey that was fighting ISIS or Syria or someone. Germany has moved its "Turkish" forces to Jordan. Has something to do with the EU vs Turkey.


  1. Australia's political class, on the other hand, seems to have no qualms about crucifying its ecconomy (and people) on the cross of the Paris Accord.

    "The Turnbull government is considering new hardline carbon-emission rules so tough it may cause the price of Australia's most popular cars to soar by thousands of dollars, according to a leading automobile industry body.

    Under standards slammed by car sellers as "unrealistic and ill-considered", the government proposes to dramatically increase within eight years the cost of selling high-CO2 emitting petrol vehicles to help Australia meet its Paris climate change commitments."

    "The Turnbull Government has proposed a new ‘carbon tax’ on cars that will push up the price of Australia’s most popular cars by more than $5000, according to industry estimates....

    Car distributors were shocked to receive the proposed model from the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development’s Vehicle Emissions Team on Monday evening, describing it as more “extreme” than any measures discussed during 18 months of consultation....

    “While the full ramifications of this proposed standard are still being assessed, the industry’s immediate view is it would severely impact on the work, utility and lifestyle options of Australian consumers...."

    1. I had no idea how far down this path Australia had gone.....

  2. Looks like Turnbull has now done a 180º about face.
