Many of the speakers at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, were delayed when the town was buried in snow, six-feet deep in some areas. Global warming is a topic for discussion at the meeting. President Trump is getting a frosty reception at the globalists’ meeting, because he pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accord.
Germany will abandon its 2020 national global-warming goal of cutting carbon dioxide emissions 40% below 1990 levels. This is part of a deal to form a new coalition government. It’s a major embarrassment to Chancellor Angela Merkel who criticized Trump for withdrawing from the Paris Treaty. University of Colorado professor, Roger Pielke, says that Germany’s climate goals were mathematically impossible.
President Trump is clamping down on federal agencies dealing with climate change. This involves thousands of employees, grant recipients, and contractors. He has temporarily frozen EPA grants and contracts and shut down the agency’s public communications. The EPA and other agencies are removing climate-change information from their websites.
