"Forgive us for looking through the legacy smoke, but if climate change really does imperil the Earth, and we doubt it does, nothing coming out of a gaggle of governments and the United Nations will save it. What will help is human invention and the entrepreneurial spirit. To the extent the Paris accord increases political control over human and natural resources, it will make the world poorer and technological progress less likely.". . .
"As we have learned from the Iran nuclear deal and so much else, Mr.
Obama is not into winning democratic consent for his policy dreams. Mr.
Obama plans to use Paris as a stick to beat Republicans even as he ducks
a vote in Congress. We doubt the Paris climate deal would get 40 Senate
votes once Democrats in Ohio, Colorado or North Dakota were forced to
debate the costs."
